Vegas Trip

This was in February.  Sorry it took me a while to post this, been busy.  :)

I got the chance to go on a trip to Vegas.   No cost to me, came up at the last minute.  My sister's father-in-law had a trip planned, and his son was not able to go.  So he asked if I wanted to go.  Since I wasn't working, I said sure!!   Free trip to Vegas??  uhhh...  yeah!

Lemme tell you what...   That man must have been going for a looooong time to get this kind of treatment!!  

The purpose of the trip was a golf tournament in Laughlin, Nevada.  So, we flew to Vegas, limmo picked us up, stayed 2 nights there in the Penthouse Suite on the top floor of the Golden Nugget, hopped in the limmo again for an hour and half drive to Laughlin, which they put us in the Villa of the Golden Nugget for 2 days (one of which was the golf tourney), then limo back to Vegas and in the Penthouse Suite again for the night, then limo back to the airport the next day.

I snagged a few pics...   This is how the other half lives....

My private room and bath...
Had a blast!!  My companion was a joy to be around.  Always happy and smiling, and everyone loves him there.  People knew his name wherever we went and some rushed up to him for big hugs.  It's apparent this place was his second home, haha.  He played a lot of blackjack and I got to learn it pretty well.  I think I came away a few hundred in my pocket.
Here's reality though..  One morning I'm waking up in the penthouse in Las Vegas, the next morning I'm eating lentils for breakfast.  haha!!
Will post pics of Laughlin on the next post.
