NO, not Christmas, you dingbat. LOL. And, it's not even the night before the trip, but it's the night before the last day of work before the trip!!! Hee Haw......hey, or should I say 'hay' the rodeo will be it town ya know... So, sitting home and doing last minute checks and packing as tomorrow night I have plans. Then before I hit the road on Friday morning to the airport, I am meeting the contractor here at my house to have some renovations done while I am out of town. Made sure the phone had tapatalk, I may try to do an update or two, but no promises, because...alcohol happens. Some of you may have read my last post ; https://www.vegasmessageboard.com/forums/index.php?threads/re-capping-2018-the-good-the-bad-and-the-fugly.157128/#post-1743634 Dang, you might have to copy and paste if interested, but this will certainly not be "Vegas as usual" trip. I am hoping to still have a great time but I will also have my moments. Hoping to bring back some bankroll. Is bringing back half too much to ask???....LOL On my birthday I have the rezzie at Hell's Kitchen, and hoping to make the LVM meet up at Cosmo on Sunday. Lot's of low-rolling gambling and plenty of alcohol will be involved. No shows booked (unusual for a 6-night stay, but we may capture something there depending on how we feel at the moment} So, in preparation for this trip, I did what DH and I always did: A 'practice run' to the local casino. Yep, headed up on Friday and attended a concert and then stayed for the weekend. Gambling happens ya know??? Gotta get the groove on. And just another reason that I probably didn't wait until tomorrow and begin this thread. Right now it is "T'was the night before.....DH's birthday. Yes, it's been a 'fugly' month. Tomorrow is his birthday and therefore I am heading to Vegas the day after his birthday . My kids are I will be going out for supper tomorrow before my trip. He will certainly be there with us in spirit I'm going to try and post a couple of pre-Vegas pics via tapatalk yet this evening. Rock on you groovy folks.
