    No way! :) I love betting the Don’t - and I have no qualms about swapping back to the pass or vice versa in the middle of a session.

    Brutal day gambling yesterday. Finished the trip down about $2k.

    My aunts all signed up for Mlife cards and gambled enough on the penny slots to cover room charges and resort fees on their suite AND my comped room! My play covered my comp but not much else.

    Lunch today... you know where this is from!

    Had a final “Hail Mary” blackjack session in the high limit room at Cosmo before heading to McCarran. In for $1,000, out...

    At McCarran now. I will pull together a trip summary tomorrow.

    I was stuck with an accessible room at MB. The shower was really small!

    Great pics. I've never had pork cheeks, but I had beef cheeks at a French restaurant and thought it was an amazing dish. Your room at MB looks nice but I don't know about the decor behind the headboard?

    I'm not sure that roll in shower could even let a wheelchair in, yikes.

    Hope the dice roll better next time!

    "The old lady" is a figure of speech here for anyone's mother. Regardless of age. I've heard small children call their mother this.

    I never used it myself, but it does seen a common practice these days.

    Maybe it's more widespread than I thought.

    Nice report!

    Hope your Mom and Aunt
    Enjoyed it!

    When I grow up I wanna
    Be a high roller like you!

    Speaking of which , I am
    Excited to be potentially taking
    My biggest bankroll ever
    On my June trip to Bally’s!

    Uh... probably about one
    Blackjack session for you!

    LOL

    It's a photo of some crazy colored marble. It grew on me as the week went on.

    I think the renovated color schemes in all the rooms and hallways is just weird. I mean, look at the BLUE carpet in my room!

    There is no way a wheelchair is fitting in there. I assume that is by design? It would allow for someone to slide over from a chair onto the shower seat.

    It's not a colloquialism... it's just the truth! They are all old ladies!

    I grew up in the midwest. I knew a number of folks who referred to their wives as "their old lady".
