Hooray! We went on the gambling bus trip to Diamond Jim's in Iowa and I came home with $50 dollars more than I went with. Now that being said, hubby didn't fair so well. He lost most of what he took. Now you think because he withdrew the money for us to go I should split what's left of mine with him. Funny man. Back in the bank it goes so I guess you could say I shared. Of course we won't be able to touch it as it's going into the Christmas Club account. Not easily accessable. As Bugs Bunny would say, "ain't I a stinker".
I must say the bus ride wasn't as nice as usual. There were some rude and/or inconsiderate people on the bus. When we got there and the lady gets on to hand out cards they wouldn't shut up so you could hear when your name was called. Had to be told twice. Then there were a few who wanted to get up and get right off the bus as soon as they got theirs. Didn't want to wait for their lunch ticket or others to get theirs. They had to be told to sit down and wait until she handed everything out and told them the rules. You know, like if you get intoxicated you will be removed etc. Then on the way home they asked for the microphone and were telling dirty and viciouse (dead baby) jokes. Needless to say they were chastized for that as well. Dead babies are nothing to joke about. Yes, there were a younger set, but the good thing was it was a younger set young lady who put them in their place.
I would have like a shorter trip. The bus left at 10 and we didn't leave the casino until 5. That's just too long and we were really tired when we got back. Usually we stop into the bar and have one drink when we get off the bus, but my poor granddaughter was dog sitting so Oreo wouldn't have to spend the day in the crate. I doubt we'll go again unless they shorten the trip. It's just too much for this old lady.
Now Oreo isn't feeling too well. Either that or those girls (Nicole had a couple friends wsith her) just wore him out. He wouldn't even eat a treat this morning and has been rather quiet, listless so far.
