I finally got that cortisone shot in my left elbow today. I was to the point where my left arm was practically useless. I couldn’t even hold a cup of coffee with that hand because it hurt so much. It felt like it had a fever in it. Doc said that was the inflammation in there making it warmer than the rest of my arm. So I’m thrilled I finally got that shot and hopefully some relief and healing now.
Anywho…I’m not supposed to be typing! So I just came here to post some vacation pictures. You’ll notice I had a fascination with the azaleas which were in all their glory the days we were there. By the time we left, they were starting to fade away. But first…
All of the casinos are on huge riverboats. That’s how they get around the no-gambling laws. Apparently if you are “offshore” it doesn’t count!
The first “big win” of the trip. I bet $2 on this spin and won $640! This was the only time I remembered to take a picture. The Captain also won $650 in a poker tournament the next day. Then, not 30 minutes later, he won another $1360 on a slot machine.
You can’t tell it from this picture, but these powdered donuts were huge and had a ton of powdered sugar on them. There were also LOTS of other goodies tempting us every time we walked by this counter:
Cupcakes, candies, pastries, gigantic Whoopie Pies, brownies…
Pies and Cakes!
I swear we did not have one thing from this counter the entire time we were there! Really! But guess what? I got a 50% discount on the dinner buffet because I am 50 years old. My first “senior” discount! Ha-ha-ha! The Old Bag Discount. Cha-Ching!
I was stunned by the size of this Pecan Pie (and my ass in the mirrors on the elevators!). The slices of pie were 3 inches high! I thought everything was bigger in Texas, but apparently not pecan pie.
Now the flowers…
And whatever that pink thing is.
I hope you enjoyed the pictures today. See you tomorrow!
(That was me not typing.)
