    My Trip Report

    12073BA5-F1F3-4C06-A955-8FBC81EB7088.jpeg 1st trip without my husband, after a long illness he passed away and it’s been unbelievably hard.

    He made me promise I’d go but I just couldn’t until now.

    Almost canceled trip several times but know it’s what I need.

    First win of the trip, so flight half full!
    Scored 16 window exit row all to myself, no seat in front of me!!!

    Plans include but I suck at keeping plans so here’s it so far:

    Two nights at the D comped, comped three nights at GN, but only using last day to leave in the evening.

    Meeting up with a board member here for happy hour at Oscars and some slots.

    Slots, Mississippi stud, poker.(Yes, older ladies can play poker!

    I know this trip will be melancholy at times but I know he’s still with me on this trip in spirit!

    Vegas is the best place for distractions!

    And here we go! Four hour flight from Louisville and I’ll be in my happy place

    Get to the d and all they have is low floor facing Fremont and ...I forgot my fan!! Yikes!

    But it’s a corner handicap room which is nice for the fridge but the shower...umm.. how am I gonna shower when there’s no ledge to keep water from splashing out?

    Haha this is gonna be different!

    Oh waiting for luggage I was bored, so bored I gambled at the airport.

    Actually won sixty bucks, now where can I do the most damage??

    Best of luck to you.
    I've flooded many floors from roll in showers. I don't require a roll in but do a bench or seat. There should be a drain in the middle of the floor outside of the shower. Let it flow lol.

    No wins to report tonight, but tomorrow will be better. Falling into bed now.
