Pre arrival.......

Crap start with a delay once we were all seated, plus looking around the plane there was a large group of drunk scousers, (Liverpool residents) about 12 of them, all shaven heads tattoos , sunglasses on and drunk, standing the whole time with the whole look at me look at me attitude going on, uh oh an interesting flight coming up i thought, 45 minutes later and were off, not to bad once were going and earphones helped to ignore the idiots, about half way through the flight we had an announcement about the staff getting abused and no more drink to be served......apparently the group of idiots had mates further down the plane who were really taking the p*ss, oh dear........a couple of hrs later and another announcement about getting diverted if they didn’t calm down, with possible arrests and a plane straight back home, then about 90 mins from Vegas another announcement to stop drinking the duty frees they had brought on board.......touchdown, hurrah we all stand to leave, another announcement...nobody can leave because the idiots where getting arrested 1st , blimey another 30 minute delay as the police / security people came on board, I counted 5 of them, and left with 6 or 7 sorry looking idiots, serves them right and I hope they did have to go straight back!!

Through customs...late, and I’m worried about the surprise I have for the wife, were last out and, yes, there he is, a limo driver all waiting for us, wife’s very surprised and I earn brownie points, great fun getting a limo and a great start now we are actually here, he stops at a shop for me to get supplies then onto NYNY. We have arrived baby!

Very impresses with nyny, check ins a breeze, off to the room, 33rd floor of the century tower and its not bad at all, view of mgm and the trop mainly, a little down towards the grand canyon shop and the airport in the distance, also a bit of the Excalibur, it will do.

Rooms not bad, big enough with a lovely bed, about half as big again as our king size at home, comfy, clean, with a decent bathroom, slightly old fashion decor and old school TV but none the less not bad all round.

A quick wash and brush up and we set off to explore nyny, wow we loved it, the whole place had a good vibe, it looked very intimidating at first but after an hour or so we had enough land marks to easily find our way round, the food courts looked good and we loved the whole city streets inside look of the place, as were not gamblers, we just wandered about for a bit, had a few mango slushy alcohol thingies, then grabbed some burgers to take to the room and call it a day, id been awake for about 21 hrs at this point so sleep came easy..

Ist full day in Vegas, up and at em we went down to the casino again for a wander, as we casually strolled about I noticed something, it was to be out downfall....LOTR slot machine, ooh looks like fun, let’s stick a twenty in, wow it was great fun, bonus wosits and video, pretty colours and fireworks and ohh lets press buttons, ooh its smegal, and leeegalooos, anyway before i knew it we where 135 bucks up...cash in and thank you..

Onto the strip and it was windy out there, still turn left look down and , wohoo Vegas baby, stupid grins on our faces we began the trek, isn’t it fantastic just walking the strip, your heads all over the place my cameras gone click crazy and we haven’t even crossed the bridge yet, got to the city centre and although I liked it, very imposing and shiny new, I didn’t think it was very vegasy from the outside, still impressed with it though, on we went to the ph shops.

First thing we noticed was all the vendors selling stuff in the middle of the walkway, every other step we were asked if we wanted anything, free samples, buy a bag, iron, jewellery, massage, perfume, etc, soon became immune to it though and carried on, had some food at cheeseburger las vegas, it was ok and filled a hole.

We wandered for a bit more, photos at the stripper giant! She wears knickers (i checked) then we went into the casino, i had an idea, thanks to this forum i had heard about the queen slot machine and being a big fan i wanted to play, looked around to no avail so asked a cw, she said oh there’s one at the cosmo and i think one at the encore, she was a lovely lady who went on to tell us how much fun she had playing when she was drunk..( i assume she meant the slots) but after 5 minutes we broke away.

Back out to the strip we went back toward nyny on the mgm side, lots of lovely porn slappers, some shabby beardos, lots of people dressed up for a very poor fancy dress party, and the odd tourist, it was an exciting journey back as i kept glancing at the posher side of the road, wishing we were back over there.

Still we made it back to the nyny ...hmm quick 20 in lotr and back to the room , its getting late already and i want to go out tonight.

Fantastic showers at nyny , we get ready, I’m in shirt and tie wife’s in a little dress we feel great and of we go, downstairs to get a taxi..ooh quick lotr..(see a theme here?) And of we go to the rio.

Now bear in mind we are a chatty friendly couple so every time we get a cab we start, hello , how’s it going, are you busy, etc where you from? So this one says....Ethiopia, i don’t like it here, i like Chelsea, i hate man yooou nited.......

And that’s it, silence (i kill you) total silence for the rest of the trip, oh well it takes all sorts, we get to the rio.

Its big, its full of kids, and its noisy as hell as we walk about looking to get to the voodoo lounge, (don’t you just love the way people say, yeah just round the corner, and it’s about a 5 minute walk) anyway we find the lift and up we go.

First thing is its dark, real dark, anyway the bartenders great and i order the wife a witchdoctor (she doesn’t know) haha she panicking as he flips the bottles about then pours, and pours, and pours, its cool and heavy, i carry the drinks to the outside and wow......

Its very windy out here and empty, we are the only ones and the wife grabs a seat and ducks out of the wind, i stand like an idiot getting blown about but i don’t care because the views fantastic, real a great view and highly recommended.

After 5 minutes she wants to go back in, i turn to take the drink and its gone, uh oh, so back in get a couple of shorts and chat to the bartender for half an hour or so, managed another 10 minutes outside then decided to head off.

Downstairs and we saw a little bar with dancers on , nipped in and got a drink and whilst sitting there this couple sat down nxt to us, the woman was pretty hammered, and lent over to my wife and said..

That dancers a*s is lovely, i wanna cup it, hold it stroke it and bite it, wow its a lovely a*s hunni what do you think?

I always get scared when somebody mentions arrests in their TR, but I'm hoping it's not you lovely people who end up in the slammer. LOL :) So far, so good. I like the LOTR slot too. It's very fun.

You cracked me up because it's true - it's so hard to walk through the PH shops because 100 different vendors are trying to stop you.

Looking forward to reading more!

Well i looked at her i looked at my wife, i looked at her husband/boyfriend/brother/pimp, and back to my wife, who remember, drunk a witchdoctor inside 10 minutes followed by a couple of shorts, and she replied, yes it’s a lovely a*s very nice.

Well that seemed to be the que for the hammered woman, we found out she was an aussie who wants to be American, whos 41 and the bloke with her is her 56 yr old boyfriend (for now) she swore like a trouper as in literally every other word was effin, she liked touching my wifes leg whilst talking or if she liked the music she slithered over to her male companion and done a very bad lap dance on him, whilst her dress was pulled to her waist, (pink with white stripes) since you’re asking,

My witchdoctored wife found this all very amusing whilst i sat sober as a judge thinking, what happens in Vegas, goes on the forum.

Well after about 17 hours (probably 20 minutes but it felt longer) i went to the bar again, 2 vodka and cokes please, ID she said, haha im 44 you serious. No not you the blonde, ohh that’s my wife(40), we don’t carry id , no id no drink.

Hmm back i go with one drink tell the wife what happened and she thinks its great she looks young, also in the meantime another couple have joined us, both 22 and she’s hammered as well, so now there’s 3 women, 1 quite drunk, one pretty much gone, and one hammered and still thinking she’s beyonce doing a single lady dance!

I talk to the young lad, warning him of the dangers of letting women drink, whilst pointing out the evidence in front of him, he`s amused and thinks he can handle it (poor deluded sod) 5 mins later I’m called aside by a manager, sorry sir no id you have to leave, is it because of my wife i ask, no sir she’s fine, especially compared with the deranged gyrating pink with white stripes thong wearing lunatic, but, no id no drink, best if you go, thank god a decent excuse, i grab wife, who actually looks relieved and say our goodbyes, yes of course will meet you tomorrow, yes aussie yanks are the best in the world, yes love you bye love ya bye...bye....

Run , run to the taxi now...

Phew , back to nyny, calm down, oh look its smegal, an hour later and bed........

I redeem my limo brownie points ;-)
