Time to move on...

The yellow roses celebrate the discovery of a BSP sista here at the rally, someone I have known for 3-4 years through our Monaco Travelers but we did not know we were sistas until this weekend. It was a delightful discovery. Sistas are everywhere!

Dick and I did go to the Hard Rock Casino...and the smoke hit me in the face the moment we walked in the door. That was not a good sign, and it only got worse. Needless to say, we did not stay long. Dick quickly shot our $40 in free money; added his own $20 contribution. The buffet was definitely pricey, and neither one of us were hungry enough to enjoy it, so we headed to the food court and enjoyed a really great Cuban sandwich and plantains. That saved the day just a bit.

Shampoo and shower to rid of us the smoke smells that were lingering, and yet another load of laundry...and then checking out a bead company online completed the day. Life's simple pleasures.

Today, we are doing the stowing and hooking up thing and heading to Orlando to meet the kids...and then go to Carolyn/Don's home for dinner tonight with a bunch of family. We'd better take two cameras, just to be safe. No, I didn't 'lose' the photos of my aunt/cousin in a strange folder. They totally disappeared from my memory card. And I know they were there, because I checked them out immediately after taking the photos. I even put the card back into my camera to check it out...and there were NO images captured in the camera. Maybe it is time to buy a new memory card! Stuff happens!!! But Pat promises she will send me a new photo when her granddaughter shows up with her digital camera. That's the best we can do.

Have an awesome Monday. Life is short...make fun of it!

Yes, if you look there are sistas everywhere. It's wonderful too.

We don't go to casinos either for the same reason. The cigarette smokes just does me in. They never seem to think of the non-smokers do they.

Have a safe trip and I'll await your next adventure. Big hug. :)

Safe travels to Orlando!

I've never liked the smoke in casinos - or anywhere else for that matter, it definitely takes away from a good time.
