Day Trip

We'd made arrangements to go with Dortha and Mark to the Winstar Casino today. The casino is located just on the Oklahoma side of the Oklahoma/Texas state line, about an hour and a half from Fort Worth. We met them at a Cracker Barrel on the north side of Fort Worth at noon, and they drove.

Joe and Sherri met us at the casino for lunch and a little gambling on the penny machines. We managed to find some reasonable food at the buffet, like salad and shrimp. We had a good time visiting, then it was time to move on to the main event. The casino has been greatly expanded since the last time we were there, so we walked through a lot of it before we settled into an area that has a lot of penny machines.

We played penny and nickel machines for several hours. I know Jim and I actually came out with more money than we went in with, so it was a good day. We all had fun, it was great getting together again. When we came outside to head home, though, a cold wind greeted us. Wow, another cold front. One of these years, we've got to get somewhere warmer for the holidays.

Two of our kids and one grandchild are on the road as I'm writing this, on the way from Colorado Springs. They will get in late tonight, so we'll see them tomorrow!
