    My Trip Report

    Hello everyone,Took me awhile to write this.* first one I wrote out, then went to submit and I wasn't logged in.* :rolleyes2:Anyway, I got up the nerve to book a flight out to Vegas to meet some friends.** :blowkiss:Upon arrival,* (yes the flight was very boring) Just the way I hoped it would be.* I went to check into the Orleans, discovered my license and one credit card were missing.* After going back to the airport and stressing out (just a little) not...We made our way to the lost and found after dealing with Delta security that said the plane already left.* (thought the items were on the plane heading to Atlanta) but nope, somebody turned them in to the lost and found.* I have an angel somewhere..:nworthy:
    Short part, Gambling (not good) Christmas Decorations, everywhere! I was happy about that. Took lots of pics of decorations, just not sure how to post them on here...
    Food was great at the Orleans Buffet..Good variety
    Orleans Shuttle ....very convenient, and the driver did manage to avoid a couple wrecks. :rolleyes2:
    The room was spacious enough for me. And I had a great view of the Rio, the Strat and the Palms.
    Bed was nice and comfy to...:snore:
    I got to be in the Vegas snowstorm..That was cool. No snow in Virginia, but go to the desert and get snow...:banana:
    Highlights...seeing the new volcano at the Mirage, the bellagio fountains, trying my luck with my diamond machines and the WOF...
    Spending quality time with a wonderful friend of mine..:blowkiss:
    Priceless...
    Thanks for reading.
    BB

    Don't feel bad about forgetting to log in to do your TR. I did the same thing last week when I was on a different computer. Oh well, a couple hours down the drain.

    Wow! what a relief to find them at the lost and found. you absolutely do have a "vegas angel" -- Sorry that the gambling wasn't terrific, but I still say you had great luck. Being in Las Vegas with a missing drivers license would be total catastrophe.

    Great TR, Beth :beer: The only thing missing was ME ! LOL
    Glad you had a fabulous time and got a chance to meet up with one of your best buds. I hear the snowstorm was awesome ...... but it really could have waited a day so you could have included the strip ride in your report. GRRRRRRRRRR. Maybe next time . :peace:

    Great TR. You were really lucky with the license and Credit card for sure. It was so nice that you got to spend time with your friend. A strip ride would have been cool..maybe next trip. like csidney said.. I saw some of your pictures of the Christmas dec's. Beautiful.

    Thanks again for posting:beer:

    Thanks for posting. Boy, having someone turn in your license & credit card was a nice "win". Glad you had a good time and were able to meet up with a friend.

    Nice little TR BB. I too would have loved a turn around trip to catch up in December but alas no November jackpots were meant for me. :( So glad you had a good time and yes, you do have an angel looking out for you regarding the lost and found of your cards. :) Thanks for posting. :)
