    Except for the migraine- and I know those- what a great trip, especially with your first royal. Thanks for sharing your group's escapades.

    I was certainly thinking that I would never get one. Granted, I don't play for 16 hours a day each day I am in Vegas, but I do play a lot and also a little too much at my local casino.

    Now I think I am ready for a string of them :)

    Too much run-bad... suckouts... miracle hits...

    I am sure that I am missing spots, opening me up for the negative side of variance. Just gotta figure out how to change it.
