It's always great when I can meet with friends while attending CES. It had been a year since I had dinner with Terry and her family. This time we met at Ricardo's Mexican Restaurant on Flamingo. It's just past the Rio and Palms casinos.

I've know Terry for years. We got to know each other because we both used to sell Ty Beanie Babies on eBay. There was a bulletin board about Beanie Baby collecting on eBay that we would both frequent. Since then, Toni and I have made it a point to get together with Terry when we find ourselves in Las Vegas. I met her husband Bill on past trips. It was funny because I called Terry one night prior to meeting at Ricardo's to touch bases and Bill was convinced he didn't know me. I just had to kid him about it when we had dinner.

Leslie is Terry's oldest daughter. She just go a job working for an insurance agency and is loving it. Leslie tends to be the more talkative one in the family. She's quite a conversationalist. It's always fun to see her. Strangely, I didn't photograph the food. But I did enjoy it. I shared my beef chimichanga with Leslie and Leslie shared her chicken enchiladas with me since I couldn't decide. Terry and Laura recommended the chimichanga and Leslie recommended the chicken enchiladas with tomatillo sauce. Bill had enchiladas, but isn't much for Mexicna food.

Laura is the younger daughter. She is going to college for graphic design and working at a school cafeteria part time. She is fun to talk to as well. She's a bit quieter than Leslie, but can carry on a nice conversation if coaxed a little.

Terry and her whole family are great. I just love seeing them when I'm in town. I just wish I could see them more often. Why is it the people you enjoy seem to often live far away? Hopefully, Toni will be with me when I go to Las Vegas next time and we'll get together again. Thanks Terry and family for a lovely evening.
