Easter Holiday Round 2
What does this mean?
Chris and Erik traveled the Netherlands and landed in LCO.
So what does any self-respecting parent do on a Christian holiday but to treat her daughter and future son-in-law to a wonderful dinner buffet at the local casino, followed by some beers and gambling.
PLUS: I didn’t have to cook. *Happy Dance*
Yep, it doesn’t get any better than this.
Really, it doesn’t. Prime rib, real mashed potatoes, deep fried shrimp…ad infinitum. Stuff your face and wait for the food coma happiness!!
But alas, sleepytime will have to wait, because as soon as you step outside those restaurant doors, you are greeted with this:
The ever popular feed-me-your-life-savings slot machines!! *
Well, not exactly.
But they were right there, and well, we did play them.
Not these exact ones, but similar ones none-the-less.
And they were fun.
Oh, and the guys played the card tables too and had lots of fun.
And I made Chris look like a hooker while I went to the bathroom.
Actually, we were waiting for the waitress to bring us a beer and I gave her the money to pay for it while I did my business. She said a security guard watched the exchange of money to her and after I left started walking toward her and she willed herself not to look at him.
Note to family members: Feel free to bring it up to her in future family get togethers. She’ll love you forever.
Needless to say, the food, beer and hysterical laughter were top notch, but the overflowing pockets of money received were not so evident upon our exit from said establishment.
Fortunately, we still have our life savings tucked away in the mason jar buried in the yard like any sane person ’round these parts does.
Oh, and before I forget, I need to give a big shout-out to Grandma Lee, Erik’s lovely Grandma. Christine told me that you have been following my blog and absolutely love it. Well, sweetie, I love you back ten-fold for reading this website and sticking with me. *High Five* to Erik’s Mom Judy for passing the link around to others, and I’m glad that you like what you see. This is the real me and the world that I live in, so I’m giving you all a great big hug and welcoming you into my life.
Damn, you’re brave.
