What if the Rat Pack Came Back Today?

The Rat Pack wanders into a modern Vegas casino.  The first thing greeting them is the juice bar.  Juice bar, what in the world is that?  Oh great, Juice and fruit plate all day.

The special of the day was Wheatgrass.  Joey Bishop looked in horror.  “My God, they are serving the turf from Dodger Stadium.”

They went to have lunch at the small bar that was left.  Frank Sinatra looked at their waiter, whose name was Adrian, with a flair,
“We don’t serve steak and potatoes any more.  We  have a wonderful salmon garni.” The dishes come as just a dollop.  Frank Sinatra explodes.  “Thirty fuckin dollars for this?  Where’s your manager?”

The three young ladies at the bar were looking, but not to flirt.  “Creeps, Cave men in suits,” one muttered.

The manager came out with security.  “Gentlemen, you have to leave.”

“We’ve been thrown outta better joints and we built Vegas.”

“Not your Vegas any more.”

I am originally from Brooklyn, New York and now live in Tucson, Arizona. I have discovered a passion for writing. I have five books out now, with a sixth on the way. Take a look @ my book list: The Search for Livingstone An Affair of the Heart The Search for Otzi Griffith Justice in Space. Moriarty The Life and Times of a Criminal Genius Available now on Smashwords - Amazon and Barnes and Noble As to not bore my public with just "Buy my book," I am also interested in baseball, the outdoors, art, architecture, technology, the human mind and DNA. I learned Ashkenazi Jews, of which I am one, have to lowest rate of Alzheimer's in the world. Therefore, I treat my brain as a muscle needing a workout. I enjoy good food, flirtation, beautiful women (I am happily married for thirty years), so just flirting ;) I was considered autistic when I was young, trying to figure out if I have a mild form of Aspergers and learning from that. That is for future posts. You can also see I love history. Enjoy my sarcastic silly look at the world, and making History more interesting than a textbook.
