Casino Madness (or How to Be One of Life's Winners)


We arrived without incident at the Hollywood Casino on Mississippi's weather-battered Coast, and enjoyed a comped buffet supper together. (I'm the one with the most plates in front of her; that's my younger sister behind me with the same set of LSU scrubs on; and my super thin identical twin in brown [tell me that's fair]; and our beautiful mom in pink.

Eeeeeeeek! All the elevators but one are out due to power shortage and we're on the fifth floor! The generator must've gone out several times during the night, because the A/C cut off often. Ug. The movie my sisters were watching was 22 seconds from revealing the murderer when the TV also went out. But Mom didn't wake up all night, so those were just minor things adding to our Great Hollywood Casino Adventure.


The Queen of the Casino doing what she loves best -- playing the quarter video slot machine with our help. Can you tell how much fun she's having?


And the winner is...everyone who got to see Mom's smile! ;)

Do something you really enjoy today! You never know what tomorrow holds.

All of you are v. cute! so electrical problems are widespread. Ike's effects cut quite a swath.

Ooo, Tut-tut, you may need to make an eye appointment for yourself. ;) But, yeah, Gustav & Ike both did some dirt on the South.

It looks like you had a ball! It is so nice to see that your whole family can have fun together like that! And are you really a twin?

Angie Ledbetter said...

Terri, it was fun! We could usually have a good time no matter the setting. (There are always strangers to shock, people to observe, silly costumes to don...okay, that's mostly me, but you get the idea.) And, yes, I really am a twin!!!

Mom looks great. I have never met the other sister and Alaine needs to eat some of our home cooking. Especially the cast-iron stuff. Glad all went well.

Thanks, it was a fun trip. I'll pass your words of wisdom on to skinny twin. I tell her it's her fault I'm so much bigger...I'm trying to eat her portion too! ;)
