THE A TO Z CHALLENGE 2017: V IS FOR.............

 THE A TO Z CHALLENGE 2017:
MY THEME IS YEAR IS RYHTHM AND RHYME:
Which consist of a song and a poem:
Hope you enjoy:
 is for VIVA LAS VEGAS
by
ELVIS PRESLEY:

I''ve been fortunate to visit Vegas,
Twice within the past eight years.
The first time was with a tour to se Danny Boy,
Which certainly brought some cheer.

We stopped at the Mone Carlo Hotel,
Very grand I may say.
What happened at the concert ,
Certainly made my day.

Daniel mentioned our group to the audience,
Asked us to stand to be seen.
He pointed at me and said "There's Yvonne Lewis",
On my face was an enormous beam.

The second time I visited there,
We stopped at the Hotel Flamingo.
It was the same hotel in the film
Of the above song if you'll forgive the lingo.


 Me in the grounds of The Flamingo
 The hotel complete with Flamingo's
Ceaser's Palace:
I certainly enjoyed both times in Vegas.
With wonderful memories to recall.
I'd love to return there again some day.
Yes! I certainly had a ball.

  2. What an honor to have been singled out. You deserved that recognition for your loyalty as a fan.

    Las Vegas is such an amazing city. Every time I go there it seems there are new things that have been built.

  4. V is for Vision. The Vision of the fun you must have had in Vegas. My mother lived there.
