On the morning of my last day at Sam's Town, I had to meet son Keith at the airport and together we would go to rent the Budget car.
I misjudged the buses and was a bit late. I felt terrible, but Keith was fine and told me not to worry.
I was Fastlane but had forgotten my card. Keith suggested he wait in the line and I try to book downstairs anyway.
The woman there said that I really needed my card, but she looked me up and agreed to do the paperwork. There was no line there.
She was quite a character.
Keith joined us and she started talking about how handsome I was. Keith is a very handsome young man, so it was funny. Still I enjoyed it.
She upgraded me to a Kia Sedona because it would be safer. I was happy for that upgrade over the course of the rental.
I usually never rent a car in Vegas, and it was expensive with the loss damage waiver, but I treated myself to four weeks, and I was happy I did. The trip is so cheap. I am getting older. My luggage was much heavier with all the clothes for my next part of the Western adventure, a Denver winter as well as Vegas summer like clothes, and I am having some back issues.
When we got the car, it only had a half tank of gas. Once again Keith is the one who noticed that. We drove up, got the woman's attention, and they sent a fellow to top off the tank with apologies.
Here we are in front of the Aria poker room.
We were sort of on our way to the 2-6 limit at Excalibur to find a game we might play together, but I was really tired and that was when I took my nap.
Back in keith's room I took a long, long nap and felt a lot better when I woke up.
It also was a treat that Keith thought of coming. I did not lobby or obligate him.
