    Your first few days are perfect. The dining and casino has bern pretty good. Hope DW is relaxing. We have not tried a Texas de Brazil there yet. Do they give a discount to vets? I think having your drivers license list being a vet is awesome. Too bad our state does not do that. Continue to have a wonderful trip. Hope you can get through the trip without too much trouble with your tooth. Hubby has been having trouble with one. I told him to get it taken care of before we leave. Appt July 3 for extraction!

    Yup, Texas de Brazil did accept my driver's license for the vet's discount. I remember years ago when you signed up for their 'club'..... you'd get a coupon for buy one get one.... Dinner was predictably good.... but even with the discount it was still 116..... and I even passed on carrot cake.....


    Another wonderful beach day yesterday.... no turtles yet... but with 2 dozen nests, the odds are good. Patty has been doing an hour of summer courses before the beach and another before dinner. That girl is quite the worker!.... and she has to be excellent at all she does.

    Patty was exhausted after dinner..... so she went right to bed and I went to the Glitz. Some time ago there was 'bucket list' post on the forum and I stated that I wanted to hit another royal flush at video poker...… well, there were no BJ tables open when I went in so I detoured to the bar. The video poker machines at Glitz have horrible payouts and don't always respond to commands..... but I toughed it out.... and was rewarded with a royal after about 25 plays. It took forever for my payout..... but for 4000 I can be patient...…!!! Went to play blackjack after that and won a few hundred at one table til the luck turned bad.... tried another table with bad results.... moved to Alhambra to try there... again with no luck..... so I drifted back to Manchebo before 1:00!

    We're set up on the beach..... and it looks to be a gorgeous day in Aruba!

    Woo hoo what a great win! That kind of makes up for having to head to the dentist. Keep up those wins!! I had little luck at Alhambra this past trip but did well at the Crystal. Ritz casino was very unkind!

    I have a strange question. Is the AC unit in the room at Manchebo loud? My husband seems to sleep better with white noise, similar to a fan. We stayed in a hotel room last night where everything was really quiet and he did not sleep well. I'm thinking I may need to pack a fan or something, unless the AC unit is loud.
