    My Trip Report

    First timer trip reporter here, go easy on me.:blowkiss:
    This will come in parts since I am at work..:ssst:
    Sunday June 17
    Left Milwaukee flying Delta on time, stopped in SLC & I couldn't believer how nice the smoking rooms are, clean, airy & really doesn't smell of smoke. I needed a smoke after waiting at the airport in Milwaukee & flying a few hours. Arrived in Vegas on time, wow what airport. I never been so I just followed all the other sheep to get their bags. Waiting at carousal 5 for my bags, looking around for mom. Just in case some of you don't know I took mom to Vegas for her 70th birthday. She flew out of Midway on Southwest & arrived 1/2 hour before me. I arrived at 11:30 am. She finds me at baggage claim & we finally get my bags..I was wondering why it took so long to get my luggage.. Oh well at least it was there. I was worried since I didn't take a carry one & all that I brought was checked. I just didn't want the hassle of going through security. However on the way back that is another story. Finally got out of the airport & both mom & me light up a smoke..Like mother like daughter. We caught a cab & went to the GC, our room was not ready & no complientry (sp) ungrades.. Oh well had to try. We gave our bags to the bell man & hit the casino for the VP machines. Mom likes Dueces Wild while myself I like Jacks or Better. We played for a few hours & not really winning but not really losing either. Had a few drinks, all I can say is wow, it's awesome to be able to sit at a VP machine, drink & smoke & not have anyone give you the evil eye. after a bit our room was ready & room 947, not too far from the elevator & ice machine. room is like a motel 6 but clean & the beds was so comfortable.. We unpacked & decided we was just going to stay at the casino this evening, just to veg since we both were up early. Went back to the casino, again just holding my own on VP while mom would hit a few times on her dueces..Had dinner at the Port of Call buffet, used the POV buy one get one fee coupon & to be honest it wasn't that bad. the food was hot & plentiful..I had a hodge podge of things & so did mom. Afterward we wnt back to the casino. You see I am really not much of a gambler since I work too hard for my money but mom is. I only put 5 dollars in the machine while mom puts 20's.. Well again I am stilling holing my own, getting some flushes & the machine just teases me on straight flushes & royals. but nothing.darn. A few times during the evening I would put in 5 bucks & bam I would hit something. I kept chasing out evertime that happened & just stuck another 5 in to play. Sounds stupid I know, but like I said I am really not a gambler, more of a drinker:drunk: & site see'er. I was getting tired so I left mom at the caisno & went to bed.. Did I tell you the beds are so comfey. All in all a decent day in Vegas. :) BTW, mom did make it back to the room. LOL
