Well everyone, I made it back...

To those that are listening:

I got back from Council Bluffs, IA with my sister Ruby and only ended up $100.00 richer, but it's better than what she did. She ended up $300.00 broker. We stayed at Harrah's, and if you get the chance it's an awesome hotel with great service.

For anyone that is familiar, I went through Madison county which isn't far from where I live, and looked through the area where they filmed "The Bridges of Madison County." Beautiful and scenic. Just thought someone might have a special interest there. Isn't love grand? *Lol*

I told my oldest daughter I was leaving the night before but she was still shocked I left without telling her again. I was told I'm irresponsible for that. *Lol* When did I become the child and she the parent? Interesting how they start worrying about you for a change. Does my heart good!

Well, Ruby and I decided when she gets back from her meeting tomorrow we're going to make the 45 minute journey to another casino in Osceola, IA. It's a new one that opened called "Terrible's Lakeside Casino." We're hoping the name doesn't indicate what our outcome will be financially. *Smile*

In the meantime, I'm paying bills, being domestic, and catching up with my kids on their lives. I hate missing anything that happens in their lives. I must have done a pretty good job of raising them, as I'm proud of the way they turned out.

I'm still enjoying my freedom, but keeping my eye open for that special someone. No hurries here. I'm actually enjoying my life right now more than I ever have. If I could feel the way I did at 20 and have the wisdom I've gained since I'd be "almost" perfect...lmao

No Jim, I didn't sit at the bar and play nickel video slots. Ruby and I did go to Prairie Meadows last night and play "Fort Knox" penny slots. Those are one of our favorites. I had one draw beer and had grundles of fun. Yep, you and I will have to go again some time. How are you doing?
