Where I stayed
What I did
Capitan, Carrizozo, and Mescalero
We went through several of the little cities in the neighborhood. Went downtown Ruidoso and stopped at a couple of shops. We saw them tube down the mountain which looked like fun, but Randy didn't want to do it by himself and I was worried about my right hand getting messed up--so we just watched.
We went to the Mountain Inns of the Gods-Apache Reservation Casino. We where there really early. Signed up for a card and Randy got $10 free and I got $5 dollars free. We both played the slots and both lost the whole thing, but I will have to say it was fun losing it. I played the 1 cent machines for a good while.
So we went exploring around again and the city or downtown area which was really crowded. There was people everywhere. So we decided to go back and do laundry. So we had a snack and I started doing the laundry. Randy decided to go back to the casino.
He came back and asked me if I wanted a purple coin or a black coin. So I said purple. Well guess what. The purple was a $500.00 chip and then he handed me 3 black $100.00 chips and $40.00 in $5.00 chips. He was smiling from ear to ear. It was the first time he had ever seen a purple chip. He had 2 straight flushes back to back. So we have money to come home on and also to play for the rest of the week--Happy New Year! Just kidding, it was really fun and he was so excited. He never has done that before. So we are in for the night and watching TV like we usually do at home...too many crazies out there for us. Happy New Year to everyone and I know God will be watching over all of you for the next year--as always. Love to you all!
