    92D43902-4964-4787-A268-7A2E7CBF98EC.jpeg This was at Oscar’s with Penny and Linda. It was so nice to hang out with such nice girls!

    Highly recommend Oscar’s!

    Oh, and in case you are coming soon, I’ve played Willy Wonka in every casino and hit diddly. At plaza I played three in the carousel and won on all of them, they are to the left when you come in.

    It’s a beautiful day, waking up and remembering I’m in Vegas is awesome!

    Packing for the truck with my luggage to GN.
    Yea, I’ll be the old lady dragging her luggage down fremont, cheapin it for free rooms!

    Grabbed a slice of pizza across from the D, it was meh, but the birds sure were friendly n there....

    Got a couple good hits on buffalo, luck might be turning?

    Funny, three times in two days that old song that says it’s gonna take a lot to keep me away from you, was playing at three places as I came in, probably my sweetheart telling me he’s along for the ride in spirit I hope ❤️

    It’s amazing out west, the lack of humidity means I can straighten my hair and it stays that way. At home I’m usually the one with the frizzball on top of my head! I have horribly frizzy curly hair!

    An old homeless guy was mulling through the trash while I was waiting for the crosswalk.

    A lady next to me said Ewe to the guy next to her and turned up her nose and looked at him with disgust.

    Saw the poor guy look ashamed so I did the unthinkable, I handed him five bucks and told him to get some food.

    Funny my luck turned around right after that.

    More to come...

    Really sweet of you to give that guy some food money. What's that saying "There but for the Grace of God go I"?

    Sorry for your loss but credit to you for going...that took alot of guts.

    As you stayed at the D is the casino ALWAYS so loud, the few visits I 've made it was too loud for me.

    View of a wall, and ice maker is beside my room but it beats a low floor at the D.

    Lost at slots at GN, have been playing ms stud for three hours at four queens, left up 100 because I’m starving!

    Magnolias in four queens is my staple, great food at a good price.

    So many times we ate here, and now there’s no one sitting on the other side

    I am having a good time, same people at ms stud as last night so we’ve been high fiving and laughing.

    Vegas is still my favorite place in the world!

    Thanks for following along!

    Always, tell your spouse how much you love them, that’s one thing I know Bill knew because we said it everyday. How lucky I am to have him!

    Thanks for posting the pic at Oscar's! Glad you are having fun overall; though I'm sure the melancholy sets in from time to time.....

    452BD2D9-3D17-4A9E-B382-9A2558081F29.jpeg Last full days plans was to sleep in, take my time and play tonight.

    Getting my traditional Philly cheesesteak at GN now, love them! Price is high but it’s the best I’ve had in Vegas, 17.00 but it’s big enough for two

    Note about the room, water gets so hot it could burn. And the toilet when it flushed, power is so strong it sprays water from the bowl on your rear. Make sure you stand up before flushing!

    Love gold tower though, it’s great!

    At four queens I played ms stud for hours.

    The dealer hit two straight flushes in about four hands!!!

    Cashed out six hundred ahead.

    There was a lively chatacter at the table telling us all how good looking he was and got louder as the drinks flowed, it was so much fun!

    At GN lost a few hundred then tried my last night big try and hit a handpay of 1300!

    I love this town!

    Still down a little for the whole trip costs but had a blast!

    Going to bed early so I have a few hours to play tomorrow, hoping for one more hit but not risking too much because I hope to be back this winter!
