    Aaahh,back in my 70's paradise after a successful first day all around!!

    My flight was without incident, nobody in the middle seat. First win of the day. Also got the window seat, which I prefer since if I sit in the aisle I get stuck with someone with bladder issues and have to get up repeatedly. Had to love the kid that would randomly start screaming, disturbing the nap I hoped to take on the plane. Not to be, so my old ass is in the room before midnight. I'm not scared of the virus or anything but it seems a little odd to be bringing kids here now. Little petri dishes running around with their snotty noses and sticky hands, spreading funk to us gamblers.

    But, as usual,I digress. Gotta love a hand pay on the first night! Now, I need to have some restraint the next four days and not blow it all. I'm keeping the wins separate from original bankroll, but I don't think I need to tell any of you how things can go!!!

    Despite the stupid mask, it seems fairly normal. You get a whiff of bleach every now and again, but that is quickly overtaken by the skunk weed and the occasional BO. People, it's the desert, it's hot, for the love of God, shower and put on some damn deodorant!

    And the number of people that don't have cigarettes and come begging is ridiculous. Plan ahead!! That really annoys me.

    So, back to the trip. No trouble finding machines to play. The local in Madison was so bad for that, I wont go back until things are normal. It is somewhat annoying to drag the chairs to the machine you want. It keeps swiveling, and wont cooperate. And then I never get it set right and its swiveled all the way to one side. Maybe I'm just an idiot.

    So after my big wins, I slotted around a few more hours. The machines went ice cold! Another good reason to call it a night.

    So. Going to sleep and gonna get back out there tomorrow to hopefully pile on the wins! I love Vegas!!

    Well now that’s a way to start off your first night!!! Congrats.
    I think I’ve mentioned this in one of your past TR’s ... but when I know your writing a TR , the first thing when I wake up is “ I got to see what she’s written”. You are so funny and relatable ( you speak my language of Wiscaaaansin’ese so well) lol. keep this up girl and you’ll be flying first class home ... on SW of course. Hahahaha.
    now get to a winning day today, you have a family to make independently wealthy!!! Hahaha.
    keep the wins coming!!!

    Presumably you made it here okay, but I'm curious what your experience was -- I've candidly found Uber/Lyft to be a huge pain in the ass over the last couple months. I don't really have much of a choice but to stick with Uber lately, but generally speaking, if you're going from one resort corridor property to another, a regular cab is the better move. As long as you're paying cash (and thus not paying the stupid credit card fee), it's faster and cheaper.

    The airport was an absolute ghost town! When I walked outside there were no cabs there. Oh crap. There was also another couple there that told me there were zero Ubers available. However I could see the cab line attendant talking into a radio, and 2 cabs showed up in minutes.

    Also, the cabs went to flat fee for airport rides. $27 to the Flamingo which I thought was pricey, but no more worrying about long hauling!

    Hello everyone!

    The good news is that my winnings from yesterday are tucked in the safe. The bad news is that I was not able to add to them.

    I was up early, again. Ugh. Let me digress a little. Mr.C had been on me to get a CPAP, as apparently I was able to move inanimate objects with my snoring. For some reason, he didnt like it that I also stopped breathing. After years of nagging, I did it. So I decided that I would leave it at home this time, didnt want to haul it. So apparently I NEED it to sleep now. Up at 5:00 am.

    So tired, so I stared at the tv for a few hours before commencing the gambling festivities for today. Got downstairs about 9:00. Got.some overpriced coffee, and away I went

    It was up and down all day. Win a couple hundred, then watch it all get taken by those hungry slot machines. Then I'd win a little more. I took $400 with me, but my daily allowance is $700. It felt like a losing day, but I have $60 left of that $400 plus the $300 I never used. I guess you might call that a win!! Just not as exciting as yesterday.

    Some excitement at Flamingo, which I never left. Too tired dammit. Anyway, the EMS guys had a dude on a stretcher. Figured I may as well play Walking Dead to get close to the action. Turns out it was some millennial man bun kinda guy, probably couldnt hold his alcohol or ate too many pot gummies. After a bit he sat up, drank some water and walked off with a girl laughing. Oh brother.

    Most stores in Flamingo are still shut. If you need any Essentials, the Promenade shop in the lobby is pretty much it. You could walk over by Margaritaville to that one too. I think those clerks are in a competition on who can be the slowest. Love the 3rd one standing off to the side doing nothing while we are aging in line.

    And, one more observation for the day. It would be nice if people would look in the mirror before they leave their room. Seriously. Super short shorts are not for everyone! And, if you have toenail fungus, please skip the flip flops.

    Well, after typing this up, I'm wide awake after my nap. So I'm going back in to see if I can do some more damage to the bankroll. Big wins, coming my way...

    People watching would be less fun if they looked in the mirror. We do need a nice chuckle while dropping the coin. As far as the gnarly toe fungus...wearing the flip flops is probably how they got it and the reason I will never wear them. I cringe at the airport looking at all of it and being from Portland, it's the "shoe" of choice. :)

    Hope you are too busy winning to post!

    Good morning from Vegas!

    So Friday, I headed back down to play some more. That turned out to be a disaster. Should have stayed in the room!!! Lost the rest of the daily bankroll, and sadly, a bit of my $800 winnings. Sigh.

    Yesterday morning I rested in the room until 11:00 am, I sure hope I didnt keep my neighbors up with the snoring. If I did, they paid me back with a LOUD party over there last night.

    After my lengthy rest in the room, I headed down to start my day. Started at Flamingo, won a few hundred, YAY! Headed over to the Linq, played and lost there. The crowd was way down over there. I imagine the hotel being closed had something to do with that.

    Then I wandered the Promenade, and got some food at In and Out. I decided to sit on a bench to enjoy and people watch. The bench was in the shade, but I really thought I burned my ass on that thing!!

    If anyone was watching me trying to eat that sloppy burger from In and Out, they were in for a treat. Dummy here got onions. These things had to be six inches long. So every bite, onions were hanging out of my mouth, dripping with their special sauce. I'm trying to not get it all over myself, and still eat. I had special sauce all over my capris, mouth and on the ground. However, the burger was really good. Word of warning, do not eat onions when required to wear a mask. You'll be enjoying that the rest of the day.

    So masks. The first night was pretty relaxed. Something must have changed with the governors order. People are getting hassled left and right. Now, its mandated, so I get it. I have no problem hassling the people that are blatantly not wearing them. No less than 5 times, security came up to me while I was drinking or smoking and told me to put my mask on. I pointed out that I was drinking or smoking, and then they say ok, but put it back on when you're done. Yeah, I know. I get it. I've seen them doing this to others countless times. It. Got. Old.

    I also received a text from Caesars about the masks, saying it includes everyone, including people passing by the property?? WTF is that?

    I hate to say this, but the vibe is not there. I am seriously thinking about heading home early. I'm so sad. Maybe it would be better if Mr. C had come along. I dont know.

    I found the same thing at the local casino, just not fun. It looks like I need new entertainment!!

    People are rude, just sit right next to you. I actually like the social distancing at the casino, keeps most people away :)

    I am going back in today, to see if it's better. I will probably head over to Caesar's palace. I'll fill you in later!!
