    My Trip Report

    Last visit to Vegas was September, 2019. This is the seventh reschedule. Original date was February 2020 for our 55th anniversary. Well it is now May 2021 and we will be belatedly celebrating our 56th anniversary.
    Won't be a live report, due to severely lacking in technology skills (only have an Iphone for a few months, don't own a laptop). Will do a report upon return.

    Leaving Houston tomorrow at 1:00pm, hopefully the rain will be over. Leaving precious cargo at our daughter's house( 7 year old Basset Hound, Toby, he will have 3, 4 legged cousins to play with for 5 days.)

    Staying at the Plaza in a luxe room. Playing in a bingo tournament Monday and Tuesday. Hubs like to play blackjack and will do a few slots. I love Pai Gow, and will play blackjack and slots. Meal plans, Whiskey Licker Up @ Binions, Andiamo's at the D, Barry's @ Circa and Pizza Rock. Breakfast is up in the air, probably do one morning at the tournament, is has cont. breakfast Mon and Tues. We are bummed about Lapert's not being open except Sat. and Sun. There is a gelato store in Container
    Park and a few restaurants have yummo dessert.

    We will just stay downtown, using Presidential Limo for round trip airport. Express Tesla $90.00 with tax and fuel surcharges. Toby pose 001.JPG

    I had a Basset growing up. They are the best. I want to get another one and name him Fred after this adorable guy:
