Weather I am clueless. Been in Las Vegas all week. It was great there!!! Warm and mild. Came home to cold.
A group of 20 went to Las Vegas this week. We were celebrating 3 birthdays and we all had matching shirts in bright yellow with photos of the 3 aged ones among us. We got lots of attention!!! We left monday evening around 930pm from Wichita. Do not like that airport. It is so incredibly boring. They were to build a new one but now it is on hold.
We checked in to the 4 Queens. Then I was up until 230am playing blackjack. I meant to go to bed but… Found a great table with fun people and a fun dealer. Won for a while but went to bed $100 poorer.
Tuesday I played black jack after breakfast. Lost another $100. In the afternoon walked to Fitzgeralds. Played some blackjack there. Sort of up and down but always lose in the end. That evening we ate at Tony Romas. It is the BEST bbq place ever. The closest one to Kansas is Denver. No surprise.
Sometime on tuesday, my knee got soo bad. It was hard to walk. Not sure what was happening to it. I think some fluid built up from sitting on stools at the tables. Miserable.
Wednesday my knee was still miserable. Many of our group went out to The Strip. They saw many of the large casinos and some went to see a show that evening. Willie went with them. I could not walk that much and stayed Downtown. And took a long nap. Knee a bit better that evening. And I played blackjack for a long time with a really fun group!! I like it when I can sit and play with fun people and a fun dealer or two, even if I end up losing in the end.
Thursday we flew home around 430pm. While waiting for our bus, I was sitting at a slot machine watching several pieces of luggage. Willie gave me a credit slip for $9 to play with. I won a jackpot and walked away with $100! Fun way to end the trip!!! Gat back home to our house at 1030pm.
I miss ‘old Vegas’. I liked the old original casinos, not the new mega casinos and hotels. I liked the history of them. And I miss having someone to be with out there. The couple we used to go with we did things together. We ate our meals together and looked for good places to eat. The lady of that couple and I loved to play black jack. Fun to share time with, whether losing or winning. We would spend a day at the mall shopping. She and I would go to 2 or 3 shows while there. I so miss those times. Now we go and I gamble alone all the time. And no shopping or shows unless I take myself. Well, you can’t go back. It is what it is. I am grateful to be included in going at all.
Not all was well in Vegas. One guy had a migraine that took him out of action for part of a day. Then another guy got food poisoning on the second day there. Never saw him again until we went home and he was still miserable. Then on of the ladies got sick for a day. I have been sick in Vegas. Not fun at all!!!!
The photo above is what I got Willie for his birthday in Vegas!!!!! Those showgirls were so tall! And they did not have on spike heels!!! He is STILL smiling.
Today we picked up Jo. We boarded her at the vets. She did not eat the first day. She has been a ball of fire all day!!! She got to ride a lot, got extra people food today. Got lots of attention. Tonite she is out like a light. I bet she did not sleep much at the vets. She and Willie are glad to be reunited!!!!
