    And it’s been far too long since last. Big score today leads me to believe........ good things to come. Today, thanks be to father’s days, the queen handed me some nice stuff. I collect old lighters and most things old from Las Vegas. Well, she came up with.....

    [​IMG]

    The lighter from Sahara is very cool and good condition. The one on the left called a trench lighter is only 100 years old. From World War One. (I cleaned it up earlier). Made from two bullet shells. And yes condition is great.

    In any event, usual 5 nighter at Bellagio turned into 6 nights after southwest cancelled my return PM flight and put me on an AM return. No respect for wheels and his condition the last day. This also helped me do a sneak away one night over to GVR and those silly folks offered we transport back and fourth to/from Bellagio.

    Comps, free play and food/beverage credits and suites...... not yet locked in at Bellagio however.

    Yeah this could be the big one......

    The kids will guard the queen in my absence. Course Larry went and got “coned”. Broken nail got infection. He’s not a happy cone presently.

    My keychain is an old Riviera chip from about a decade ago. That lighter is pretty awesome.

    Pretty cool. As a cigar smoker I have several nice lighters but no vintage lighters. Years ago I was staying at the Venetian playing some Craps and the pit boss and I had a conversation started by me chewing on a cigar. He reached into his pocket to show me a vintage lighter he had. It was pretty cool and he told me he had several in his collection. I am sure he is long gone by now since this was the early 2000's. Congrats on the thoughtful gift by your Misses! The Bellagio used to be my go to but that has changed over the years. I still think the Bellagio is one of the best on the strip!

    Well my best intentions of doing a decent trip report haven’t worked out very well for the past 24 hours. Once again I have failed. But will try to do a little catch-up here. First, we had some winning moments for example

    This not winning this hot

    Not a math question for you. What does 45,000 nickels equal. Now no using a calculator let me show you.

    Yes the old Buffalo is good to wheels. Clearly a highlight and a record buffalo win yay me. In reality this is quite a shocker for me.

    I came to find that Bellagio is taking this virus stuff pretty seriously. And playing at the baccarat bar with the plexiglass dividers actually works out pretty good I think. All the machines are open when you get a little isolation if you will from the riffraff next to you.

    No this signage they have every other machine is not really a health precaution. I think it’s more of a financial precaution keeping you away from the machine.

    More seriously I would estimate that about half the people at the Bellagio casino are wearing masks.
