TITLE TOWN

DESPITE THE INJURIES ALL YEAR LONG, THE LITTLEST CITY IN FOOTBALL WINS THE BIGGEST GAME IN FOOTBALL AND TAKES THE LOMBARDI TROPHY HOME TO GREEN BAY, WISCONSIN.

I ABOUT WORE OUT MY NEW PACKER T-SHIRT, THAT I GOT LAST MAY WHILE SHOPPING WITH AUNT KATHY & LAURA.  WATCHING PACKER FOOTBALL IS OUR MAJOR SOCIAL ACTIVITIY DURING THE SEASON.  HAVING SUNDAYS AND MONDAYS “OFF” WORK HAS IT’S BENEFITS.

THIS YEAR WE HAD A COUPLE OF PATIO PARTIES AT THE CAMPER TO WATCH IN OUR SHIRT SLEEVES, A TRIP DOWNTOWN VEGAS, AND LOTS OF VISITS TO SPIRIT MOUNTAIN WHERE THEY HAVE DIRECT TV’S SUNDAY TICKET, AND NINE TV SETS.

CINDY, A WISCONSIN FRIEND FROM WORK, GOT A COMP FOR A FREE SUPER BOWL PARTY AT THE EDGEWATER AND COLORADO BELLE CASINOS, AND ASKED US IF WE WANTED TO USE IT?  SHE HAD HER HUSBAND RON GO DOWN AND CHECK US IN AND PICK UP THE PARTY TICKETS.

WE SPENT THE WEEK-END UP RIVER IN LAUGHLIN AT THE COLORADO BELLE.

THE CASINO LOOKS LIKE A BIG STEAM SHIP, BUT IS BUILT ON LAND ALONG THE COLORADO RIVER BANK.  THANKS, RON AND CINDY FOR THE FREE ROOMS AND PARTY TICKETS. 

CINDY HAS US ALL LINED UP WITH COMPED ROOMS AT THE RIVERSIDE IN A COUPLE OF WEEKS WHEN UNCLE HANS AND RENEE COME TO VISIT TOO.

ACROSS THE SREET IS THE TROPICANA EXPRESS RESORT AND CASINO.

THIS IS WHERE MY GRANDSONS WILL BE STAYING DURING SPRING BREAK WHEN THEY COME TO LAUGHLIN TO VISIT GRAMPS AND MARY.  HEY BOYS, HERE IS A PICTURE OF THE SWIMMING POOL YOU’RE LOOKING FORWARD TO.

SO EVEN IF THE FOOTBALL SEASON IS OVER, YOU CAN SEE WE ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO VISITS FROM FAMILY NEXT.

THE SUPER BOWL PARTY WAS HELD IN  A HUGH TENT OUTSIDE THE EDGEWATER CASINO, LIKE TAILGATING.  THIS IS THE LINE WE WERE STANDING IN TO GET INSIDE.

INSIDE THE BIG TENT WERE MANY BIG TV’S, BUT ALSO TWO MORE BIG LONG LINES FOR THE FREE FOOD AND FREE DRINKS.  AH MARY, THIS JUST ISN’T GOING TO WORK FOR ME…….

WE WENT BACK TO OUR HOTEL ROOM, WHERE THERE WAS NO LINE AT THE ICY BEER COOLER, AND NO LINE TO USE A PORT-A-POTTY.

CHECK OUT THIS LINE OF SLOT MACHINES.

THOSE VIDEO SCREENS ON THE SLOTS, WITH THE TALKING HEADS, ARE NOW TV’S.  YUP, YOU CAN SIT THERE ALL DURING THE GAME PLAYING A SLOT MACHINE.

THE WORLD CHAMPION GREEN BAY PACKERS !!!
