Tentative New Year's Eve plans

Jami has volunteered to babysit so we're supposed to go with Bubbie and Jerri to one of the Tunica casinos for dinner and a little gaming tomorrow night. The dinner part is fine cause I really like the dining choices at the casinos but I ain't a gambler in any shape or form. After about 10 minutes and $20.00 I'm either bored outta my gourd or pissed off for being so stupid for putting my money in one of those damned machines, or both.

Why do I go? Because that's the only place that my husband will readily agree to take me for a NYE celebration and I want to go SOMEWHERE! I'm tired of sitting at home. I'd much rather be sitting at a table in a place with a live band (of any kind), having a few drinks, doing a little dancing, and shooting the breeze with folks we know.

Anyhow, tomorrow night we'll be here,

Horseshoe Casino

Or here,

Bally's Casino

Or here,

Fitzgeralds Casino

Or here,

Grand Casino (personally they have my favorite buffet)

Or Harrahs, Hollywood, or Samstown Casino in Tunica, Mississippi.

I hope I can make it till mid-night! (They do have some of the cutiest little hats and tooters at those places).

Sounds like fun. I have to keep relearning the rules for Blackjack every five years when I go to one of those places and place my paltry $2 bets as if it were my life savings.

Wait a minute, that is my life savings!

Happy New year!

I did not know there were that many casinos in Arkansas!! do yours have to be on Indian Reservations like ours do?

Brenda said...

There aren't any casinos in Arkansas Miz Mary lou but there's a load of them across the Mississippi River in Mississippi where they have to be on the river, can't be on land. There's one just across the Helena bridge here, Isle of Capri, about 15 mins away. The others are over in Tunica which is about a 45 min. drive.

Holy shit, but those are some bigass casinos -- and so many of them, too!

Who knows...maybe Lady Luck will be on your side, and your 20 smackeroos will win ya some righteous moolah.

Happy New Year, sweetie!

Happy New Year. At least you have someone to do something with. Me and the kids are just hanging out tonight. Quiet night at home for the three of us, though they do want to stay up late. We'll see, I'll probably fall asleep before they do, LOL.

Happy New Year, May 2006 be full of joy, happiness and success.

Keep smilin.

Play the penny and nickel slots and then walk around and watch the silly people throwing their dollars away. Although the looks on their faces gets sort of depressing sometimes.

Hey at least your date for NY's is over 21!
I'll spent NY's with my Zach. We had [faux] champaign [faux] caviar, and watched movies (Mr & Mrs Smith, Man of the House, & Hitch).
Then Kasey, Robby and friends invaded and we had lots of noise, and a house full of 20-somethings!
I'll take a casino any day.

Joan said...

I hope you have a great time!!

It was on the newspaper when he saw the watch again. How time flies! 50 years had passed since he saw it the last time. He never stopped finding it during the 50 years. He was too old to remember too many things. However, everything about her was still engraved in his mind and never disappeared.[url=]replica rolex datejust ii[/url] [url=]Prada handbags[/url] [url=]boss eyeglasses[/url] Rolex watches are amazing. A gorgeous Rolex watch looks great and stylish. As we all know that Rolex watches are known for its strength and endurance, that's why Rolex watches have a good reputation for so many years. And also you will see the quality and precision reflected in each Rolex watch. So, Rolex is a name that thousands of people had dreamed of.
