My life as a heterosexual crossdresser.

Saturday, 3rd full day in Las Vegas, day 5 of my vacation

It is Saturday, our 3rd day in Las Vegas and the 5th day of my vacation and yes that means I have had my nails a full 4 days and I am loving it. I got up and wrote my blog from Friday, I am typing pretty well with my long nails now. It was about 11 when I started getting ready. I was ready by a little after 12. Now Robin comes to town today and Cassandra and I are picking here up at the airport about 1:45. I went down to the little café and got a hot dog for lunch as I waited for Cassandra to finish dressing. It really does amaze me how at ease I am walking around here as Susan with all the people. I was just finishing when Cassandra came down and we were off to pick Robin up.

We got to the airport and only had to wait about 10 minutes. It was great to see Robin again. Now it took a while to get her to her hotel, she is staying at the Flamingo this year. We dropped her off and drove down to Planet Hollywood and parked as you can still park there for free. This gives us a chance to walk through the mall and look around and then down the Strip with all the other people as we waited for Robin to get checked into her room and ready. Well we had no more then got and Robin texted Cassandra she was in the bar at the Flamingo by the sport book. So, we left and walked down the Strip to the Flaming to find Robin. Cassandra wanted to watch the college basketball playoffs. We found Robin and the two of them went to the sports bar to talk and watch the game. I decided to try my luck at the blackjack tables by the bar.

I found one and sat down to play. Two other young men sat down to play also and the girls with them stood behind them to watch. We started playing and I was doing okay winning more then I lost which always makes it more fun. Now the two guys were really bice and we were all talking and having a good time but I kept noticing one of the girls kept looking at me and I was wondering what she was thinking. Finally, she came over to me and told me how awesome my nails were and asked to see them. She said she wished she could have nails like mine. Now in the back of my mind I am think why would she not have them if she wanted them? Now even the dealer told me how awesome my nails were, I really love getting compliments on how I look as Susan but especially on my nails. Well I told her I knew how she felt as I would love to have my nails all the time and explained about Diva Las Vegas and how I couldn’t have these pretty long nails in my male life. I played for over an hour before my luck changed and I quit, I was up a little $125 when I stopped.

I went and found Cassandra and Robin, robin was just heading up to her room to change and re do her makeup for dinner so I joined Casandra to watch the college basketball. Now they had been sitting next to another couple and talking with them and we continued talking with them. Their names were Lauri and Bubba, I think that is his nick name. they are here from Colorado and they were awesome. We had a wonderful time talking with them of course it helped they all wanted the same team to win. We had a great tine with them. Veronica finally showed up, now right at the end the team they were cheering for lost. Robin came back down and it was time for dinner.

We walked outside in the pedestrian mall between the Flamingo and the LINQ and found a nice restaurant. It was called Chayo Mexican, we have eaten here in past years. We had a wonderful dinner as we all talked and yes, we did get a picture of our little group. After dinner we decided to go play some blackjack.

We went into the LINQ and found a blackjack table in O’sheas. We sat at a table that had young lady playing at and she was having a good time. We played for a while and I was not doing well. I got down to my last $15 bet and got ns 11 against a dealer 6 showing so I had to double down so I broke out another $100 and I lost. I kept playing and my luck didn’t get better. I actually lost here and it was my biggest lost this week $195. We all lost here, Cassandra was the biggest winner as she only lost $40

We walked back over to the Flamingo and Veronica went and played blackjack while Cassandra, Robin and I went and sat and talked for a while. We talked for about an hour and then we decided to go try our luck at the blackjack tables. We played for a while and my luck was not any better, I never did get a head and soon I lost my $100 so I quit. Today I finished down almost $300, I am still a head for the week so far but not as much fun when you lose. I want to blame it on being a Saturday night but I know that has nothing to do with it, just wasn’t my day.

Cassandra and in walked back to Planet Hollywood and got the car and came back and picked up veronica and the drove back to our hotel the four Queens. It was after 11:30 and as I have not been lucky at the tables I decided to go up to my room and go to bed. It was still a wonderful day.

Friday, the second full day in Las Vegas, day 4 of my vacation

It is Friday and day 4 of my vacation, our second full day in Las Vegas. Now before I get on with the day’s events an update on my nails. I am getting more use to them, still having issues picking some things up, especially small things and chips but I am liking them more each day, and I have gotten several compliments on them. Really liking the length.

I got up this morning and wrote my blog from yesterday, I am getting better with typing with the nails. Once I finished my blog I started getting dressed. I am not sure what time I was ready but it was before noon. Cassandra was also ready so we decided to go and check out the other side of the Strip. Veronica had a few things she needed to do so Cassandra let her take the car and we took an Uber to the New York New York casino. We went in and found a Blackjack table and started to play. Now yesterday we did this and we all did well, well Veronica and I won money, Cassandra lost a little although she won at 7 of the 9 casinos but for her the two casinos, she lost at were the two she bet bigger at. Now our luck was with us again as we both left with more money then we started with. Now what we are doing is when we get a head and start losing, we quit. When you play blackjack most of the time at some point you will win some money the problem is you tend to keep playing when your luck charges. Doing it this way a lot of time you don’t play for long at one place. We left here with our winnings.

We walked over to the Excalibur and went in. Cassandra wanted to check out the restaurant we went to the other night, Dicks last resorts to see if they had enough room for a big group incase we can get a Diva Las Vegas dinner set up here for next year. After we did that, we found a blackjack table and sat down to play. We played for a little while and it took a little work but eventually we were both winning so we quit and once again had more money than we started with.

We left here and walked up to the Park hotel casino, formerly the Monte Carlo. We looked around and found a blackjack table. There was an elderly lady sitting alone at the table playing so we sat down to play. It turns out today was her 90th birthday, her name was Sasha. Well we introduced ourselves and talked with her a little. She said she was going to leave till as she said us lovely ladies sat down. She was s fun to play with and when we gave the dealer our player cards and the pit boss gave our cards back, he used our male names as that was what was on the cards and they all do it but he wished us ladies luck. Anyway, Cassandra made the comment we looked a little different then our names, didn’t seem to faze Sasha she just said it sure is fun to get dressed up sometimes. The dealer also commented on how awesome my nails were and wished she could have her nails like mine. We played a little longer here as we were enjoying playing with Sasha and sharing her 90th birthday. We finally quit and yes, we were both 3 for 3 as we left with more money than we started with. As a matter of fact, I was up over $200 by now.

We walked to the Aria and went in, this is one of the newer resorts on the strip and really big and higher end. Now they did have a few $15 tables but they were all full so as we were feeling pretty good on how we were doing today we sat down at a $25 table. We played for a little while and I did better than Cassandra. Which sound pretty good but it really wasn’t. Cassandra lost 6 hands in a row, not one win or push. I actually won 2 hands and had ne puch but it was only a few minutes and Cassandra had lost $150 and myself $100. We were still both up for the day but it was a letdown.

We were a little hungry and wanted a break so we walked across to the Planet Hollywood casino and went to a restaurant in the miracle mile mall called Blondie to eat. We got a table and Veronica texted us to see where we were so we waited for her to catch up with us before we ate. I did get our waitress to get a picture of Cassandra and me as we waited for Veronica and of course a selfie. Veronica got there and we had a nice late afternoon dinner as we watched some college basketball. After we ate, we went into the casino and all 3 of us played blackjack. My luck was not good so I quit before I lost to much, I was down $50, I think Cassandra won $5 and Veronica also lost.

We walked next door to the Paris and found a blackjack tale. We were working our way back down the Strip again. Now my luck changes as did all of ours. We played for a while and all left winners with more money than we sat down with and for the day I still had more money than I started with.

We walked down to the LINQ and went in to pay Blackjack as we all did well here yesterday. It started off bad and soon I was down to mt last $15 but then things turned around. By the time we quit I had won $95, I had got back a lot of what I lost at the two casinos I lost at. We once again all walked away with more then we started with.

We went next door to Harrah’s and found a blackjack table. Now our dealer here was awesome, we really did have great dealers at all the casinos but the one here, Sarah was so much fun, she was high fiving us and joking with us and really wanted us to win, she was awesome. The sad thing is she was on a hot streak and I was the first one out, we actually played for a while but I never got a head. I would get down to my last $15 and then win a couple and then lose again and finally my $100 was gone. We had played at 7 casinos and I lost at only 3 so it was a good day. Even though when I lost it was bigger than when I won, I was still up about $160 for the day.

We caught an Uber back to our hotel the Four Queens. It was only about 9:0 so we went into the casino to play Blackjack. We all started at the same table but soon we were all at different tables. I played a little over n hour and just steadily kept winning. It was a $5 table and that is what I was betting. I had bought in with $100 and when I quit a little before 11, I had $223 so it was a good way to end the day, up almost $300 for the day. I know this won’t happen every day but so far, I am doing pretty good.

Thanks for reading and be sure and read my most recent blog to see what is new and also my blog from Diva Las Vegas 2019 this year to follow my vacation and 12 days of living as Susan full time.

First full day in Las Vegas, day 3 of being Susan 24/7

It is Thursday and the first full day in Las Vegas, it was about 9 when I got up, I slept so well last night. Cassandra and I decide we would walk the Las Vegas strip and check our some of the casino’s as she has not done that yet. We were going to go to the MGM and walk down the strip checking out the casinos. now I did this the fist Diva Las Vegas I came to in 2010 with Peggy, Cassandra’s wife. We were ready a little before 11, Cassandra wanted to go to Charming Charlies first so her, Veronica and I drove to a mall to go shopping. We looked around and we all bought some things, I got a couple bracelets. We had a light lunch here and I had Cassandra take a picture of my pretty nails. We then drove back to the Four Queens so we could catch an Uber to the MGM Grand.

Okay a quick update on my nails, I am getting use to them, typing on my computer is getting easier but certain things are still hard, doing my makeup takes a little more work but the biggest thing is picking things up especially small thing. I really notice it at the blackjack table. Picking up single chips is harder as with the pointier shape it is like using chopsticks. I do love them though. Still like the square better but these are really starting to grow on me. It will be interesting by the end as the narrower shape really does give my fingers and hands a more feminine look.

We got to the MGM Grand a little after 1pm and went in. Now veronica thought we should play blackjack at each casino we went to so that is what we decided to do. The goal was to see if we could win more than we loss. We found a table we could all play at, yes on the strip you can’t really find a table less than $15 so that is what we played. We each bought in with $100 dollars and started playing. Now I am not sure how long we played but we all seemed to be doing okay and when we quit, we all left the table with more than we bought in with. We left here and walked out onto the strip and down to the next casino.

Now as we walked to the next casino, we had one lady ask if she could take our picture and of course we said yes, I used it to ask her to take a picture on my cell phone so I would have one. The next casino was Planet Hollywood which we have all been to before. We went in and looked around and then found a blackjack table we could all sit at, yes $15 per hand and we started playing. Once again, I am not sure how long we played but in the end we all walked away with more then we sat down with. I didn’t win as much but I won and now we were all talking about how long we could keep the streak going and if we feel things are going bad stop playing while we are still a head. We went back onto the strip and on to the next casino.

The next casino was the Paris, of course I had to get a picture inside. Now as this was our third casino to play at and see if we can keep our streak going so, we headed for the blackjack tables to find one we could all play at and yes once again $15 a hand. We sat down and started playing and we all seemed to do well for a while. Then things changed and Cassandra was the first to stop, still a head. Veronica and I played a little linger before we stopped and yes, we were all a little bit a head. Not much but enough to walk out with more money than we started would. 3 casino’s and we all won at all of them. Back out into the strip and on to the next one.

The next casino was Bally’s, this is an older hotel casino on the strip so we were abler to find a $10 table and we started playing. We didn’t play as long as we were not doing well. I lost most of my $100 before winning back most of it. Cassandra stopped first as she wanted to finish with more then she started. Both Veronica and I lost some money. When we got to the casino cashier, I had $85 and as we stood in line Cassandra said I should go play $20 so I could try to in and finish $5 up so I did but I played $25 and yes, I won the had I played so I quit $10 a head. 4 casinos and Cassandra and I won at all 4 and Veronica at 3 of the 4. We went back out onto the strip and as we walked across one of the pedestrian bridges to the next casino, we took a few pictures.

The next casino was a smaller one called the Cromwell. We found a blackjack table and played for a little while and yes once again we all left the table with more than we started with. We really are having a good day and lucky. The next casino was the Flamingo, we found a blackjack table we could all play at and started playing, we did not play long here as the dealer was hot. We all lost and our streak came to an end. I dropped $100 pretty quick so we left and went to the next casino.

The next casino was the LINQ, we found a blackjack table and started playing again. The table we were at again was not good so Cassandra decided to try a different table so it was just Veronica and I playing and soon I decided to try a different table as I had lost $70 of my $100 so I went off to another table so we were all at different tables for the first time today and it seemed to work. I won back my money and kept winning. By the time I quit I had 193 so I won most of what I lost at the Flamingo back and now I had won at 6 of 7 casinos we played at.

We went to the next casino Harrah’s and decided to have dinner at Toby Keith, we had a nice dinner before going to the casino. We all sat down at a blackjack table and started playing. We played for a little while and I actually won a little money thanks to a lucky splitting of pairs I could double down on. Cassandra and Veronica lost a little. Now I think they won more money then I did as they bet a little bigger, bur I won our casino crawl as I won at 7 of 8, Cassandra at 6 of 8 and Veronica at 5 of 8 which is still pretty impressive.

We left here and took an UBER back to the Four Queens to finish off our night. Cassandra didn’t play long before she went to bed, I played for a while and actually had my best night I won the most so far today and on a $5 table. Veronica was still playing when I went up to bed. We played at 9 casinos and I won at 8 of them. That is so amazing and I can’t believe I will happen tat way again. When I got to my room before bed, I counted my money and I had $457 more than I had this morning. It was a good day and a lot of fun.

Thanks for reading and be sure and read my most recent blog to see what is new and also my blogs from this years Diva Las Vegas.

Day 10 the Saturday after Diva Las Vegas, Still in Vegas

Well se slept in again this morning, to many late nights out but than it is Las Vegas. I was actually up by 9:30 getting ready while Cassandra went to the workout room and ran. she has done really well this trip as she has ran at least 7 miles every day except on while she has been here on vacation. this of course gives me an hour and a half to get ready.

I was pretty much read when she got back to the room yes when I am not rushed I take my time. Peggy, Cassandra and I were trying to figure out what we should today. We all wanted to see a show while we were here and haven’t had the chance yet so Cassandra started checking shows and times. We decided to go to 2 shows today. An afternoon show and an evening show.

Mac King who Cassandra and Peggy has seen before was playing at Harrah’s next door at 3 and and Jeff Dunham at 7. Now the Mac King tickets were only $35 and the Jeff Dunham were $95. Cassandra started getting ready as we wanted to leave here by 2 to get to the show as Harrah’s is right next door to our hotel the LINQ and only takes maybe 10 minutes to walk from our room there.

It was about 1:45 when we left the room to walk over to Harrah’s for the show, Now one of the coolest things about the LINQ is they have these informational signs that all have a camera in them and you can get your picture taken and then e-mail it to yourself or post to Facebook, and they have them inside the casino and Susan at the LINQout side too. To bad we didn’t notice these when we first got here but it is a great way to get a picture of yourself.

We got to Harrah’s about 3 and went up to the show area and got our tickets and got in line for the show it was funny as we got talking to this couple in front of us. Once we go our tickets we got in line and again were right behind the same couple so we ended up talking with them while we waited to go into the show. They were really awesome and had no problem with us and they even had their Daughter with them who was probably 10. It was time for the show to start and as you went in they took a picture of you, yes they would try to sell it to you later so we were going to skip the picture but the couple in front of us after they had their picture taken wanted one with us so the 6 of us, how awesome is that. We got into the show and you guessed it we sat right next to the same couple and kept talking.

The show started and Mac King came out in these plaid suit which he is famous for wearing and the show started. Now he is a magician and also does comedy so you really get 2 shows in one. the show was so awesome and worth the money. Of course at the end o the show he was telling us that he just signed for 4 more years here at Harrah’s so you have time to see him if you come to Las Vegas and it would be well worth it, so if you are here you really should check out Mac King. After the show we walked back to the LINQ to get the car and drive to Planet Hollywood. We were going to drive over there and eat there before the show. It really isn’t that far but easier to drive.

We got there about 5:15 and walked into the Miracle mile mall at Planet Hollywood and found a place to eat called Ketchup Burger bar, they had really good food but a little expensive but you have to expect that here in Las Vegas. After we ate we walked through the mall to the Casino and found the Show rooms. We got there early enough that there were not many people there so we got our tickets and then waited to go into the show.

It was about 6:20 when they opened the doors and we went in. we got our seats which were way up at the top but in the center so we had a pretty good view. These 2 ladies sat next to me and we got talking about Jeff Dunham as they are big fans. It was fun to talk to them as I really do like meeting new people.

The show started and it was awesome. We have never laughed so hard in our lives. Jeff Dunham is a ventriloquist and his show is awesome. This is a must see if you are in Las Vegas, worth every penny. The show went 2 hours but seamed like only 30 minutes, it went by so fast. The show room was full and I bet it held 1,500 to 2,000 people. After the show we walked back through the mall to the parking Susan at Planet Hollywoodgarage and back to our hotel. Of course I had to get a picture in my cute outfit, this is one of my favorite casual looks.

We went up to the room to freshen up before going to the casino. on the ride back down the elevator a group of about 10 girls got on with us. They were all early 20’s, skinny and had on short dresses and spiked heels and looked great. We joked around with them and even walked with them through the casino talking to a couple of the. I should have gotten a picture with them but didn’t think of it.

Peggy, Cassandra and I went into the casino and found Veronica and started playing Blackjack. It was not a good night for Blackjack at least for me. I did play about 3 hours and gave back most of what I won yesterday but I had fun. the dealers were all fun and the people at the table were great. It has been a great week and coming to an end way to fast. We have one more day here in Las Vegas and then the dive home. It was about 1 am when I got to bed again.

Thanks for reading and sharing my vacation with me.

Day 9 the last day of Diva Las Vegas

Well it is here the last official day of Diva Las Vegas, wow this week has gone by so fast. We are staying here in Las Vegas till Monday so our fun is not over yet but I know the end is coming. We slept in again today so we got another late start. it was about 2:30 when Peggy, Cassandra and I were all ready and left the room. we walked down to the LINQ Pedestrian mall between the LINQ and the Flamingo and waited for the 2 Renee’s to get here. It was a nice warm sunny day again and we had fun people watching for a while as so many people walk by.

The Renee’s got there about 3:20 and we walked up to a Chayo Mexican Kitchen & Tequila Bar to have a drink and so Cassandra could watch part of the NCAA game. we ended up having snacks here and stayed here till 5 talking. I know what you are thinking me in a Tequila bar but they did have a really good lemonade. Veronica finally got there as she had things she needed to do.

At 5 Cassandra had to take a couple girls to the airport that were flying home tonight as their vacation is over. Peggy, Veronica and I walked across the street to Caesars and into the Forum shops to look around as we were having at Trevi. it is amazing how many people you see walking through the mall but not that many in the shops, of course most are high end shops. I always wonder how many people actually buy something at these shops, I guess they must or they couldn’t stay in business.

Susan at the Forum shops Las VegasWe took a break and sat down for a while and of course had to get a picture inside the Form mall. While we were sitting there I saw 3 girls by the fountain trying to take a picture of themselves so I walked over and asked them if they would like me to take their picture. They all said yes and handed me all their phones. It is funny as a few years back I would never have thought I would be walking around the Forum shops in Las Vegas and walking up to strangers but it really is fun.

We sat here maybe 10  minutes and then continued down the mall to the moving Statues and watched a little of that.Susan in the Forum shops Las Vegas it was pretty cool. there must have been 400 people in there watching this and taking pictures. we walked back down and found the restaurant but we still had time so we were only a short way from the casino so we walked down and sat at a penny slot machine and I put $5 in to say I Gambled at Caesars Palace, I lost my $5 but had fun.

We walked back to Trevi and Cassandra was just walking in. she got here faster then we thought so the 4 of us walked in together. we had the upstairs reserved for our farewell dinner. There were already about 25 girls there so we got a table and ordered drinks. this gave us a chance to sit and talk and of course talk to the other girls and get some Susan & Valorie at Caesasrsmore pictures. This is me with Valorie, I met her back in 2011 on her first trip to Diva Las Vegas.

It was well after 7 when we ordered diner. I ordered a Caesar salad as I had steak fries earlier and wasn’t really hungry plus I wanted to save room for desert. We had a wonderful dinner and it went by so fast. For desert I ordered a chocolate gooey cake and it was so good and so big that I shared with Peggy and we still couldn’t finish it. Cassandra ordered a Banana split and I bet it was close to a 1/2 gallon of ice cream, she was only able to eat about half of it so the tip of the day if you eat at Trevi’s split a desert.

After dinner there was more socializing and pictures. this is Cassandra, Cami, Me and Sue. it is funny the friendships you make and even though you may only see them once a year you can keep up with them on Facebook and Cassandra, Cami, Susan and Sueknow what’s going on in their lives and they really do become like your extended family.

Now the only bad part of the dinner was the check, they would only do one check per table so we had to sit down and divide it up ourselves. We only had 5 at our table so it was easier but still took us a little while and of course they has a banquet fee on the bill and a 16% tip which we had to divide out. I just don’t see why they couldn’t do separate checks, what ever happened to customer service, you shouldn’t make you customer have to work just to pay their bill. the other thing I don’t like is when they ad the tip for you, first you may miss it and double tip. The other reason is most of our group tips at least 20% but my feelings are if they add the tip in that is what I am going to tip so they only got the 16% they put on the bill. okay that’s enough complaining about the bill.

After dinner we walked back to the LINQ, Peggy went up to the room and Cassandra, Veronica and I found a Blackjack table. Now it is Friday night and the casino was busy so the tables were $15. I bought in with $100 and we started playing. I was the big winner of our group. Cassandra played for a little while before going to the room up just a little. I was actually up about $500 when the table got cold and at $15 to $25 a hand with doubling down and splitting it doesn’t take long to loose money. I had put a few chips in my purse but I finally wanted to take a break so Veronica and I walked over to the Flamingo and found another table.

I took out 4 $25 chips and got and we started again. I was up and down for a while but I just couldn’t get going. I have my $100 buy in and $20 so I bet the $20 and was not going to spend any more if I lost it was was done. Somehow the gambling gods knew that as I got a 6 & 5 for an 11 against the dealers 6 and you have to double. I put another $20 out and the dealer drew to 20 and I lost so I was done for the night but it was a good night. when I cashed in my chips I had $455 dollars of which $100 was what I started with so it was my best night gambling and probably got me back to even for the trip give or take $100 so for a full week in Las Vegas that is pretty good.

Tomorrow most of the girls will be gone and it will be Just Peggy, Cassandra, Veronica and me till we leave Monday Morning for home. Tomorrow we are going downtown to the Fremont Experience and going to spend time down there and we are planning on a dinner buffet, can you believe it we have been in Las Vegas for a week and not one buffet yet. The weather this year has been the best we have had, Sunny every day and 75 to 80 and no wind. We couldn’t have asked for better weather. Now I am already thinking about Tuesday and having to get rid of my nails, so sad.

Thanks for reading

Day 8, golfing and the High Roller observation wheel

Wow that was a short night, Cassandra actually got up at 5:30 to go run and I went back to sleep till 6:30 after all it was 2 am when I went to bed. I will be tired tonight. I drug my self out of bed at 6:30 and went and took a nice long shower to wake up as we were not meeting till 8:45 to leave. I finished my shower and was ready to start my makeup when Cassandra got back to the room. I have been trying all week to be all ready so she could have total use of the bathroom to get ready but that would not happen today so we had to share the bathroom doing our makeup.

Now sleeping in a little more meant we were rushed more so I only had time to write part of my blog from yesterday so I will finish it when we get back from golfing. We were on our way by 8 am to the golf course, we are playing Badlands today. This is a really hard course as they actually have three nine hole courses that go from what they call easy to hard. the 4 of us got there about 9:30 and the other 3 girls from Diva Las Vegas that were golfing with us were already there.

We were able to go off right away so we paid and went right out on the golf course so we had the easy and medium courses which really weren’t what I would call easy. This is a link style course  with narrow fairways and rocky desert all around and on some of the holes the desert split the fairway so you really had to hit the ball right where you wanted if you were long, shirt, right or left if you didn’t lose your ball it was still a drop and penalty.

It was funny the one guy from the course still has pictures on his cell phone from 20150326_094347last year with the girls. as we were teeing off a lady came by and took our pictures which she would be selling us later but I had to get  a picture with her.

We teed of and the weather was awesome, a little on the ho side as there really is no shade but no wind so it was good. I played much better than I did on Tuesday too, my shots were straight which I really needed to do here. After the first 9 I was in the lead by 1 in our foursome and the only one to break 50 barely as I shot a 49.

The second 9 was even harder but it was a fun day. I had some really good shots one I put 2 feet from the flag from abut 140 yards out. on the second 9 though I finished 2nd 3 strokes behind Cassandra but I was good with that as she can out drive me on every hole, I am not a long ball hitter. For the 18 holes we played I got second with a 103 2 strokes behind Cassandra. now this is not a great score but I must have had at least 10 penalty strokes from balls that had there been wider fairways I could have played so I was happy.

On our way back to the club house we ran into the girl who took our picture and I broke down and bought one for $20. It is a good picture but after I bought it I realized I can’t really set it out in my house or show friends that don’t know so I guess I shouldn’t have bought it. After golf we met up with the other 3 ladies and had a nice lunch.

We got back to the hotel about 4 and Cassandra was going to take a nap which I probably should have but I still had my blog to finish from yesterday so that was my plan but of course that plan didn’t work out as Peggy was getting ready to meet Teresa and walk down to the Bellagio Hotel casino and asked if I wanted to go and of course I did as I love walking down the strip and checking out the hotels. so I took about 15 minutes to freshen up and we were on our way.

We met Teresa at the bar downstairs and then we were off. Now walking around Las Vegas is fun as there are thousands of people out walking and it is fun to people watch and I am sure I got many strange looks but who cares. We walked through the casino and then into there little garden area which was so beautiful. they really spend a lot of money here making this hotel look nice. We then decided 20150326_174159to walk to the City Center Hotel casino which is a massive hotel casino complex. as we were leaving we all got pictures out font by some flowers. This is the best of the 3 o me and n all of them my necklace is messed up.

We walked over to City Center and went into the Aria Hotel which is just one of the hotels that is at this casino and checked out some of their shops. we also walked through the casino before making the long walk back, you would think walking 3 casinos down would not be that far but these are all huge Hotel casino complexes and I bet it was a good mile. We walked the other side of the strip on our way back past Planet Hollywood, The Paris, Bally’s and of course the Flamingo to get to our hotel.

We sat at the Bar and played a little poker slot to get a free drink which really didn’t turn out to be free as I lost $20 in the slots. By now Cassandra was up and getting ready for the evening so Peggy, Teresa and I walked out into the LINQ 20150326_205049pedestrian mall between the 2 casino’s to get something to eat and found this nice place that sold pizza by the slice so we each got one and stood at a table out side talking and watching the people walk by. we are actually riding the High Roller (the worlds largest observation wheel at this time) to get a view of the city at night.

Once we had our group ready we got our tickets and headed for the wheel, we had 7 of us going. Cassandra, Peggy, Michele, Veronica, Keri, Teresa and me. It takes20150326_210227 about 40 minutes for the wheel to make one full rotation and you really do get a great view of the city. we took so many pictures from the wheel of the city and of course we had to get some of us with the city in the background. If you are in Las Vegas and want a good view of the city it is worth the price.

After the wheel Cassandra, Veronica me and a couple others walked over to the Flamingo to check out their black 20150326_210811jack tables but they were all full so we walked back to our casino the LINQ and found a table. I did okay and I was still betting bigger tonight, $10 to $30 a hand and had some good wins and some bad losses but I was having fun. I played about 2 hours maybe a little more and at one point was down over $100 and up over $100 and in the end I I had only lost $75 playing but had fun.

It was a little after midnight when Cassandra and I got back to the room and I was really tired. Peggy had just started watching a movie so I broke out my computer and finished my blog from Wednesday and then was going to go to bed but as I was doing my blog I got interested in the movie Peggy was watching so I stayed up till almost 1:30 watching it with her. I am sleeping in tomorrow though as e have nothing planed early in the day.

It has been a wonderful trip so far but we are more then half done now and I keep thinking it will come to an end soon and I will have to remove my beautiful nails. But still a memory I will have forever.

Thanks for reading
