Mmmmmmmmm, gambling! As I am want to do every 3 years or so, I spent the weekend at playing blackjack. It was my first trip to real honest to goodness Lake Tahoe, and we spent the night at Harrah's in Stateline, NV on the south shore of the Lake.
At least they tell me there's a lake. Supposed to be pretty spectacular, too.
The weekend went like this: drive in the convertible with the top down. Nice and sunny and warm. Stop to reapply sunblock, buy stuff at the Vacaville Premium Outlet Mall. Drive more. Get to Tahoe and lose money. Make some of that money back, and learn the difference between "doubling down" and "splitting." Sort of. Repeat many times. Put $5 on 33 black as you walk out of the casino, and win $20, which allows you to feel as though you not leaving as a loser. Drive in the convertible with the top down. Nice and sunny and warm. Stop to reapply sunblock, buy stuff at the Folsom Premium Outlet Mall. Drive more. Get home and feed the angry cats.
Good times were had by all.
