    I think I would get along with Patti. Can’t wait to hear about her new ring!

Logic didn't work reminding her she already had two rings.... one of which we got here just 3 years ago....!

    Diamonds are a girl's best friend is the new mantra.... Dinner tonight at Texas de Brazil is only a short walk from where we got her last ring! I'm guessing we all know the outcome here......

    Maybe I've been set up.....!

    So yesterday was just another beach day and it rained last night a bit.... first since we've been here.

    After the beach yesterday we got ready for dinner at Texas de Brazil and Patti got ready in record time so we got to the area about 20 minutes early. That was enough time for Patti to get into Casablanca and look at rings..... try on rings and select a ring! Oh yeah, and for me to pay for it. The ring was ready to pick up after dinner so she was a happy girl! Dinner was dependably enjoyable with good food and exceptional service. They actually accepted the veterans notification on my MA drivers license for a 20% heros discount! That helped a lot with the bill! Reading their main website it notes that discounts are valid in the states only.... so that was a win!

    After dinner a walk thru the Hyatt casino, lobby and grounds for old times sake. The Hyatt was where we stayed for out first visit! We walked along the beach and up thru the Hilton grounds and just enjoyed the lobby for a bit then made reservations for the Sunset Grille for out traditional last night dinner. Texas de Brazil had done away with the huge flaming torches and the Hyatt eliminated them as well. Dunno when this all happened.... but it's a good move for the environment and the gas bill for these guys. We took the taxi back to Alhambra so I could show my girl my playground as she had never been in before.... she just doesn't enjoy all the sensory stuff involved with a casino. A quick stop at the market for a bottle of wine.... and back to Manchebo!

    Off to Alhambra for me where I grabbed a good spot at a blackjack table and enjoyed some modest wins til I hit a big losing streak. Off to video poker and played for a while before hitting 4 deuces for $1000.....! Was gonna go home but it was still early so I played some more blackjack with decent results and then video poker with not so good results..... left a bit heavier in the wallet and was back and in bed by 1 am. I haven't closed the casino yet this trip!

    OK... so now it's beach time....and a thank you to Andrea for posting a photo of Patti's new ring!

    Enjoying your trip report. I would like to learn video poker. I found an online which allows you to play for free with credits they give you daily. Ive practicing, roulette, slots etc. I saw video poker but don't know how to play.

    Sounds like you had a great time, CP! And I found it interesting that it all sounded "normal" like pre-Covid!
