Another Wednesday afternoon in Vegas...

Decided to just wander around today with Aki. Went over to the Forum Shops at Ceasar's Palace, where they have a FAO Schwarz store. Folks, right up front underneath the wooden horse they had near-life sized plush animals. We're not just talking lions and tigers, but a reindeer, three caribou, two gazelles, a few giraffes, an elephant, a rhino... and these things were for sale, to boot. The elephant was $600, the gazelles were $150 each, they had some leopards as well with the most amusing look on their faces. And they also had a LARGE Steiff tiger. That one didn't have a price tag on it, and I wouldn't be surprised if it went for something like $5000.

Also went to the Mirage for a bit to get a few pictures of the white tigers. They had one out in the open area, and he was being a ham for the humans watching him.

Aki's having fun with her Miss America folks, so it's been a fairly enjoyable time so far. Now, if the gods of luck would cooperate a bit tonight...

A question
Hi! {Smile} I was wondering... would you or your friend happen to know what kind of prize went with "Miss Congeniality?" I thought you might, since you said your friend is involved with the pageant. My parents and I are particularly interested in that title right now because the daughter of one of Dad's former coworkers won it. {Chuckle, SMILE, BIG SMILE}

Re: A question
Aki says that it's a scholarship, but I don't see anything anywhere on the main Miss America site. Likely it's just a $5,000 scholarship, but I wouldn't be surprised if there's another scholarship somewhere for the winner.

I looked in my program book. The scholarship that goes with Miss Congeniality is $2000.

We award $1000 at state...the scholarship is sponsored by Hibernia Bank.
