Love and Family
My sister and brother in-law are visiting starting this Thursday. There is an off-road race that bro in-law wants to attend at the Wild West Raceway just on the edge of town.
My sister doesn’t get around too well these days so I will be left to entertain her while her husband is at the track. Most likely we will be playing bingo and slots at the casinos. Ricky hates bingo, but I like it. It gives me a chance to spend time with my sister and she loves it so its all good.
The raceway is on the site of the old Mustang Ranch. It’s claim to fame is that it was the first legal brothel in Nevada back in 1971. Later it was closed. The owner lost it to taxes and racketeering* (whatever that is…pretty popular here and in Washington). There still is a Mustang Ranch but it is not the original.
The new ranch was used in a move called Love Ranch, starring Helen Mirren. I never saw it but here is a trailer.
Helen is a wonderful actress. I may need to find this one and watch it.
*Racketeering = Organized Crime. There were rumors that the Ranch was owned by the government. But this is just an urban myth.
