Hey, It's Skippy!

My sisters, their husbands and I went to Las Vegas for a sibling trip. It was the first time we ever did anything like this as adults and we all had a great time, despite having some varying ideas of fun.
My sisters Nancy and Jean liked playing the slots and shopping at some of the stores on the strip. They also saw Celine Dion in concert.
My brother-in-law Scott is a poker master. I joined him in a Texas Hold 'em tournament. Technically, I outlasted him, but that really doesn't matter in tourney play.

My other brother-in-law Dave loved walking and checking stuff out. He walked mile after mile. In fact, he might still be out there walking.
I did a little of everything. I found a video arcade featuring older games (games that I actually understood). I played Blackjack, slots and Roulette.
As a group, we went to see Tom Jones. I never would have thought of going to see him, but I have to admit, he put on a great show. We also went to see some comedian. Actually, I forgot the main act, but I remember the other comedian. It was Marc Price, better known as Erwin 'Skippy' Handelman from TV's Family Ties. Skippy was the goofy neighbor who had a long crush on Mallory (Justine Bateman). Then again didn't every teenage boy have a crush on her back then? Price put on a hilarious show.

The Skipster does look like he has a thick layer of makeup.
