Response from Karen:
Tim: I know you told me about the stairs, but you didn't mention that a) they are not carpeted and b) the bathroom is downstairs. That might have changed my mind (though I really enjoyed hanging out with you and LOVED my room). I think it is only fair for an older visitor to mention that fact. I well may want to stay with you again for a couple of nights when they have the memorial for my friend. All the best and don't forget to let me know when you get to Vegas!
