Visit to iconic Monument Valley & Viva Las Vegas!

Monument Valley in the United States

Jimmy Cricket got to fulfil the ambition of a lifetime when he visited the legendary Monument Valley in the United States of America.

Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park is a red-sand desert region on the Arizona-Utah border, known for the towering sandstone hills recognised by their steep sides and flat tops. The park has frequently been a filming location for Western movies.

Jimmy, who visited the valley as part of a holiday in Las Vegas, posted on Facebook: “Well folks! We got to fulfil a life long ambition, to visit, the spectacular, “Monument Valley”, backdrop of the John Wayne, (Director John Ford), films such as, “The Searchers”, “Stagecoach”, on the border of Utah and Arizona with Bob our Navajo Indian guide, in dedication to my oldest brother John who was also a great fan! ??.”

The famous entertainer kept his friends and fans up to date regularly with his trip on his social media channels.

He and Mrs Cricket were joined during the holiday by their eldest daughter Jamie, who currently works as a deputy headteacher in the Cayman Islands.

Among the shows they watched in Vegas included the Bellagio’s dancing waters and Cirque Du Soleil, at The Mirage, a 3,044-room Polynesian-themed resort and casino located on the Las Vegas Strip in Paradise, Nevada.

And there’s more… Twitter jokes from Jimmy

Jimmy Cricket on Twitter

Jimmy Cricket, the well-known Northern Irish comedian, regularly uses social media to tell some of his famous one-liners.

And here is a selection of some he has posted on Twitter over the past few months.

Come closer folks… so I’m looking at a shrivelled-up fried egg on my plate and I’m thinking, you’re not what you’re cracked up to be!

They keep putting up give way signs. Where will it all end?

My uncle Patrick has fallen on his feet. He’s got a painting and decorating shop and he’s now selling Brexit wallpaper… it’s got a soft border!

People have their time in history. For instance, Alexander Graham Bell invented the phone, but if Thomas Edison hadn’t invented the light bulb before him he wouldn’t have been able to find it.

I’ve just been offered a job advertising sleeping bags… it’s all very hush hush at the moment.

So I said to Mrs Cricket:  Why do we need a new vacuum cleaner?” She said: “‘Cause the old one sucks!”

It was pouring down when we got to the pet shop yesterday. In fact, it was raining cats and dogs and guinea pigs!

I’ve got a bump on my head. It’s my own fault for trying to swim in the bath!

I love Dr Billy Graham’s quote about Heaven: “When they say I’ve died, don’t believe them. I haven’t died. I’ve just changed address.”

My cousin Rufus has got the sack from his job as a railway station master because of a complaint from a lady train driver… she said he’s been sending out the wrong signals!
