We were all up on Wednesday, Dec. 6th by 8 o’clock having determined that it was too windy to walk first thing. The sun popped over the hills to the east and the solid blue sky welcomed it. Drinking our tea and coffee together, Donna and Gerry took turns in the shower. Pretty much have to, it isn’t big enough for two! Bill put the furnace on for a quick burst of heat to warm it up in here to our comfortable 70F.

So, hmm, what did we do today? We read, we worked collectively on a Los Angelos Crossword Puzzle. We walked to the clubhouse, I mailed a card that will be late making it to the destination on time, we had lunch around noon hour. On time for once! The boys had a sandwich, Donna had salad and Bill and I shared mushroom soup and I had a wrap.
|Tried a selfie|
|But I like it better when I'm not in it|
After Gerry and Bill did the dishes, we sat outside in the sun up against the Suite. It actually was warm and I sat in a sleeveless tank top. Clemson sat on my lap so he was comfy! Bill asked if we wanted to take a drive over the Laughlin to check out the car show at the Riverside Casino/Hotel. For the cost of 0$ to get a Players Card, we got in free to the 3rd floor show. The cars are awesome! Our jaws were dragging for 90% of them.

I snapped pictures although unless I captured the detail, I won’t be able to name them all. There are probably too many pictures but it will make up for the small bit of writing today. I hope. We received $5 each on Free play but they’d had a problem this morning after a computer upgrade. This meant some of our cards weren’t working and Bill and I were unable to claim our $5. We put in $5 of our own money and played penny machines until it ran out.
Donna and Gerry were able to claim their free play and walked out with $7 or so. Bill and I received coupons for the Riverside Buffet so we gave one to our guests and we all got tons of food for $17/couple. Unbelievable. By the time we got home it was 6:30 MT and Bill fed our patient little pooch. This is why we spoil him the way we do. We can leave him home alone and he just sleeps in his duty to look after things.

Bill put the hockey game on for Donna and Gerry so they could watch their favourite team. Don’t laugh when I tell you it is the Toronto Maple Leafs. Die hard fans for sure. Bill and I were going to read anyway, after I finished my post. This has been a good day with no pressure. It is hard to believe they only have one more day here with us. Just one more sleep and they will be hopping aboard their plane.
|Another favourite but it would be a different colour if it were mine|
|My style for sure!|
|And this one for my grandson, Nathan|

|Still a favourite waited for us in the parking lot|
All good things come to an end and yet saying that, it is probably better not to over extend their first visit. The Suite will seem so much bigger on Friday, having it to ourselves again. I hope you have had a good day as well.
|So, now we've gambled and ate at the Riverside|
Not a fan of their casino though, machines need upgrading
Thanks for stopping by. I love reading your comments.
