First off, it is cold in Las Vegas with temps in the low 70s and cooler at night. The last time we were here in May it was 105+ every day during our visit. Not so this year. What a crazy weather pattern there is out here.
Gerry and I are by nature very careful people but we slipped up today, however it worked out for us. We actually walked out of the motorhome and left our cellphones behind. Neither of us realized it until we were a few miles down the road. Thankfully, no disaster happened and we made it back to the safety of the phones a few hours later. Whew, that was close.
We made good use of the time we were gone by heading for the Sunset Station casino. The goal was to have a late lunch at the buffet and then gamble for a while. We also left our casino cards behind and they wanted to charge us $3.00 more for each lunch. Gerry ran over and got a new card and we still had time to get the lunch menu. Lucky day for us in that regard.
That was when it went downhill for us. On a scale of 1 to 5, I would rate my meal a 2+. Gerry said hers was a little better than that, but only a 3. She picked out different food so that accounts for the difference.
A skinny man in his early 40s sat at a table near us and had his plate heaping almost 5 inches high with food and also had two other big bowls of food. At first I thought there were two people at the table, but no, it was just one. He started making strange noises and a lady asked him if he was all right. That set him off and he started in on her in a loud manner. He rambled on for a long time and then shut up. A few minutes later he went over to her table and started in on her again. I thought there was going to be some violence and notified a manager who was walking by. The man finally sat down and continued talking to himself. To say he was a little spooky is an understatement. You never know what or whom you will run into these days.
We finished our meals and proceeded to play the slot machines. I managed to lose $6 and Gerry played her $20 for a long time. I grew bored and played a progressive slot machine and won $65 on three pulls on the lever. That was enough for me, I quit. Once Gerry went through her money we headed for home via Costco. I left my winnings at Costco. Gas was $3.599/gallon there.
We survived the almost disaster of not having our cell phones, but it was an uneasy day for us. After all that, we didn't receive any calls at all. Typical!
So, tell me, was your day that exciting?
