    I'm under 12 hours until I head to the airport so figured this was as good a time as any to start. (Going to try to do a TR but I'm not particularly savvy about this kind of stuff. I did the Tapatalk thing since that seems to be the only way to add photos and I did manage to post a test pic on my second try).

    Flying Southwest direct to Vegas. My son is a commercial airline Captain so one of the perks I get from paying all that college tuition is flying for next to nothing. Have to fly reserve but have never not made it on a flight yet.

    Pulled all the stuff I wanted to pack and, as usual, was only able to fit half of it in my one carry on bag... That's all I get besides my really big purse since I have a thing about checking luggage. Poor Grumpy Cat (see test pic if you care to bother) has to stay behind .

    Hopefully will be making another post tomorrow if my little old lady brain cells can retain the how-to information after I've slept awhile.

    P.S. Do I have to use this app to post pics vs from the VF forum? And I don't see any way to add pics from my stored photos... Is that possible?

    You can just click the circle and select the "pic" tile and then it should allow you to post from you stored photos. f2c1e9e4ff5d592c17992dd980ce9d0b.jpg

    FYI (and best of luck there), I find tapatalk suddenly much more difficult once I get to LV. Course, that's just me. I do believe you can grab photo's already on your phone and share them. Also, brain cells counts generally drop upon arrival as well as savvy......oh the stories I could tell in this regard.

    Have a great time!

    Looking forward to it. I do think you should make room for grumpy cat though :). He looks like he could bring you luck!

    image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg Flight was smooth and uneventful. Lyft from the airport was only $6 since I had a coupon. Was able to check in as soon as I arrived at Paris with no early check in fee so that was a nice bonus. Room isnt anything special but it's nice. I opted for a quiet room with no view... Hope I don't regret that. Penny machines here are evil but the crepes are really good!

    Love crepes at Paris- used to just pop by the Creperie and get one to go!
    Glad you made it in without issue, looking forward to some winning pics soon!!

    I guess we'll let you join...
    Good luck! We typically ask for the quiet room too, which usually has no view or a mountain view. But enjoy the view on the strip and not in your room!!!

    Your room looks perfect, a quiet space is more important than a view. What you need is a winning machine view! ;) Good Luck!

    LOL, those eeeevil penny machines. Course, I'm thinking we have all said that at some point about any denomination machine, casino, etc.

    But please tell- how can a room have no view, no windows?

    100% for sure, the best part of this trip has been meeting up with the bunch for the HL pull and now being able to put faces to names (and actually know real names.). Without a doubt, VM's puppy is the sweetest and most well behaved in all of Nevada ❤️

    I stayed at the Cosmo and played awhile after the meet but the slots there must have been told by the Paris slots to continue my losing streak. (Side note: I gambled there for just this side of two hours and not even once did I see a cocktail waitress...). If my $100 cup of coffee this morning is any indication, I should stay out of the casinos today.

    Out at the pool now. No sun yet but soon I hope. Worse yet, I'm freakin' starving and the pool bar isn't open.

    Y'all work some voodoo magic please and turn this poor (literally) gal's luck around.

    Well Indy sounds like you need some Italian luck. So head to Bellagio main entrance, turn east and head to small fountain on way to look out space that looks out to the water/fountain show. Ask small fountain for some positive mojo. Old fountain likes small change. Good luck.

    I sure hope the good luck has started to catch up to you this trip! I agree that Vegas morning coffee can be very expensive.....have fun!
