This One's For Hank

I took an early lunch hour today to get my poor dirty Tucson washed and waxed. I frequent a car wash where a lot of limo drivers and casino employees bring work vehicles to be washed. I keep to myself pretty much most of the time; I'm awkward around strangers and certainly not one to strike up conversation. A Hard Rock Hotel and Casino security guard named Hank was there getting one of their trucks washed, and he offered me a cup of coffee this morning. I declined the coffee as I'd just gulped down a sugar-free Red Bull, but we stood there and talked for almost 20 minutes! I learned that Gwen Stefani is a very nice lady and I need to get out to concerts more there. The pool is opening up soon, so crazy times are ahead - especially Sundays, I guess there's some party there at the pool every Sunday afternoon. He told me anytime my husband and I get down there, to stop by and see him. This one's for you, Hank - thanks for proving there are still kind, friendly people here in Vegas.

I love running into people like Hank, they really do renew your faith in humanity! I am glad to hear that confirmed about Gwen - I've never met her but I've always thought that she was a good person.

*applauds Hank and others like him* I love these kind of feel good stories. Oh and with you living in Vegas, heck yeah you need to get to more concerts! I think that's the biggest reason why I could never live there, I'd be broke all the time going to concerts/shows and going to Cali for even more concerts. lol

Barbara: I was happy to hear she is in fact nice too, as I was like you, I thought so!

Nik: I used to hit concerts all the time until I became a Mommy. Just not enough time to get to them as much anymore.

Amanda: LOL I wonder if he'd remember me if I showed up there next weekend. It's too bad I probably won't ever actually do it.

Heather: Nice people do give the warm fuzzies, don't they!

Jas: No kidding, he certainly snuck up on me.

Meow: Thanks for the well wishes, I hope your week is splendid too!
