The postings here have been spotty recently due to 18 days on the road, in the air, and on the sea. And then when we got home we were both hit hard with a nasty flu bug. But we are finally recovering, albeit slower than we’d like. I have lots to share but until I get caught up, we at least want to wish everyone a happy holiday season.
Here’s Brad holiday greeting, clowning around while picking up some comps!

Here is my favorite Mother’s Day card, sent to me by Angela, the Frugal Princess, some years ago.

I probably won’t have time to write here for the next week. The Frugal Princess family is coming to town and we love showing them a good time! Gambling is definitely put on the back burner.
This will be the first time in many years the whole family has been able to come to town for the holidays. Read more… »

As a service to my readers, Brad and I periodically visit various area hospitals and give you reports. Although Brad insists on doing most of these visits, I try to pick up the slack when his seven stents keep his arteries open and his heart stays beating nice and evenly. So two days ago I visited St Rose Dominican Hospital, Siena Campus, a facility we hadn’t visited before (although Brad had stayed once at their San Martin Campus.). The occasion was gallbladder surgery, Read more… »

It looks like my last blog entry, about casino noise, really struck a chord (pardon the pun) in many readers. Someone asked whether I ever received any input from casinos, acknowledging that they are taking notice of my blog and/or the comments. I don’t know about this – no casino executive has ever contacted me about anything written here. However, I do know that some casinos have people monitoring Internet chatter about casinos in general and their property in particular. So I am hoping my blog and your comments are getting to casino executive ears!
Tomorrow is Thanksgiving Day. People often ask Brad and me how we celebrate holidays as a local in Las Vegas. Well…. tomorrow’s holiday will be a typical combo day. Part of the day will be spent with family and friends – my sister is cooking up a turkey dinner and we will enjoy the home-cooked meal, a nice change from casino restaurants. And part of the day will be spent chasing multiple-point bonuses. But most of all we will be giving thanks for the blessings in our life: So many friends, our love for each other, a loving extended family.
We wish such blessings for all of you on this coming Thanksgiving Day.

I will be taking a blog break for a week or so while Brad and I spend the holidays with the Frugal Princess family in Columbus, GA. And, as usual, we will drive to Harrah’s New Orleans for a few days stay so that a tough ex-Ranger and a couple strapping grandkids and perhaps some of their teenage friends can help us eat up hundreds of dollars of Seven Star food comps.
And I wish all of you peace and joy this holiday season, whatever holiday you like, or don’t like, to celebrate. And may 2011 be a very good year for you, in every way!

Of course, I, a gambling grandma myself, would love this story.
Tomorrow Brad and I will NOT be eating Thanksgiving dinner in a casino – for the first time in years. My sister, Starr, has now settled in Las Vegas and she loves to cook. So, although we have comps all over town, we are looking forward to joining her at her condo for a lovely home-cooked meal.
I wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving. And if you can’t be with family, I hope you will be able to celebrate with friends, even if you have to make new ones that day.
