    Trips to Las Vegas:
    15
    We booked a Labor Day weekend in Vegas and some friends booked a July trip so I had the urge to throw some money away last night. My Lady is out of town, but I figured she should know I'm taking money out of the Vegas wallet. She texted me back Good Luck and win some airfare money. What a good woman.

    I was surprised to see open spots at the craps table and open seats on the $5 bj tables on a holiday weekend. It was only 8:30 and by 9:00 they started to fill up. I sat at a $10 table with some nice twentysomethings. Up $75 after the first shoe, dropped to up $15 after the second, even third, survived the fourth and fifth, crashed halfway through six. Doubles were rough for everyone at the table. I think people believe in superstitions because they keep coming true: I was having a good game until we got a new dealer. Once he came in, I only won once and lost two strong doubles. He brought the hammer with him.

    Oh well, to the atm for another stake and to the dice. I was left of stick, which is a great place to be when the dice setter gets a turn. "Could you please give her threes so it doesn't take so long? Thank you." I played for only about two hours, the dice made it around the table only once. I only lost on about two shooters, mine included. I only threw about five times. But most everyone hit some good stuff. The guy on my left was playing just only $25/no odds on the passline and $5 yo. On one roll he had his last chips out and made about $300 on the elevens. Two out of the three times the stick rotated out the next roll was seven. But it is hard to lose on craps when four is hot.

    I finished $140 up after being down $150, which was just fine for the evening. I didn't want to stay out too late with a 45 minute drive home alone ahead of me. So at 12:30 I colored up. I had money back in the Vegas wallet, the bank account, and some gravy.

    But of course having presidents in the pocket instead of just Benjamin doesn't sit well. So it was time to put twenty in the $5 slot and see what happens. It's kind of a thing with me. Third pull added five to the total, and fifth after that was a 7bar/7/7bar for forty. Cash out for $210, Thankyouverymuch. NOW it's time to go home.

    So I came home with $330 up. A good little solo night out to scratch the itch.
