Mrs. Monk's Would-be Diary should have been written by Mrs. Monk, since she is the "Writer" in the family.
However, since she is a writer only in the conceptual sense, I have undertaken to fill these pages on her behalf
If not by her, these pages will certainly be about her, and other important matters of the day         Leslie Monk

 Strip Pool

by  Monkles  25 August 2012

Las Vegas has become the new de rigueur destination for Brits, having become  accessible due perhaps to the skilful marketing of Virgin Atlantic. The Monks have good friends and former neighbours that have moved to, and reside in Las Vegas. And yesterday we greeted other friends that have just returned from Las Vegas. Today we have been blogged by relatives that are now in Las Vegas, and our very own Tennis Pundit Wilco is about to visit Las Vegas and should perhaps be warned about what he might find in Las Vegas.

For that reason I have assembled the following Shoestringonline pages from 2007 when the Monks visited Sin City, courtesy of the now defunct Maxjet Airline.

Las Vegas does not apologise for the sins of gambling and debauchery and excess, and in fact celebrates all of the above and makes them palatable and accessible to all, including the house of Windsor, and other innocent tourists, who may be surprised to find hookers plying their trade as if they were selling cupcakes in a shopping mall.

This week Vegas invented the new sin of "Strip Pool" involving a snookered crown prince, and raising further questions for Lord Justice Leveson.

The third in line to the British throne has been overwhelmed by the forbidden fruits of Las Vegas. It was bound to happen.
