    My Trip Report

    We leave tomorrow. :biker: My countdown timer is from the original pre-change to better times time used when it was set. Keep it to remind me how bad it could of been :nono: with dignitaries of all types in and about we were scheduled for 7 pm arrival. Now 12:35 in the pm. So how about that :jester:
    We were set for May 15 or thereabouts but something came up :goofy: so we cancelled for July when surely whatever came up would be gone. :drunk: But alas(as good books are want to say), it is STILL with us and we are going to just dive in. :faint:
    Yes, “we”. Family trip!!! For 2. We’re masked up with all necessary back up; and bandanas and plastic glasses and who knows what else to “ward off” (as June loved :poke: to say) :santa:every conceived threat to our health.
    My significant other has not been since October I think. I don’t want o_Oto bring it up for clarification as it would inevitably be just another date I treated as any other event :kiss: or day.
    I last went in June, March, February (SB), and January (playoffs). Not much has changed as much as everything has changed. :cry:
    A little about us. Both retired though she does contract work to pay for travel on the international level of which I have no interest in participating. :lock: :lock: :lock:
    Work hard kids——it pays off in the end; sometimes. Well, that’s a little for now.
    Need to check in at 11:25 in the am so will update from the airport tomorrow as not much is going to happen :stir: between then and now. So if you want to know anything as far as conditions etc for downtown ask early and be patient.
    Going to stay at California and visit Fremont 4 queens the D el Cortez and possibly circa sportsbook. I believe @Ty :blink: is going sometime this month so strip questions can go to him as he was “just there”. And probably will soon return.
    Keep watching for the video when he and I both try :bang: to simultaneously access the 10 play BP machine in the wee hours of the morning........”Pssst.....take a coffee to that guy over there and a water too....here’s a 5......( he’ll HAVE to go the the bathroom now!!!!)” :eek:

    So Periodically I check in with swa 232F95A9-4C34-4C87-9652-4995BE646FF8.jpeg
    for reassurance I'm not confusing times and $'s. And there was a banner (a red banner, pulsating red banner) Tuesday for an opportunity to change flights. I’m a sucker for a deal.......but not a left hook :pirate: matey. Argggh!!

    Have fun, win lots! Looks like a good number of us are there at the same time. The casinos are no match for our dominance!

    Update tomorrow hopefully. Just realized we can watch NFL on SWA channels tomorrow so flight should be more fluid than chit chat about whether you would remarry:kiss: if spouse died......who would do that? Who would care? She won't be around to judge...:headbang: :eek:

    @bubbakitty I realize you put this in Misc. Vegas Chat but I think it's turning in to a TR.
    Following along.
    Good Luck!

    Allegedly........:whistle:
