    I test every morning as I promised my daughter before she gets down here
    We got 16 free covid tests with Medicare from the cvs in ocean springs so we have enough
    Every person in casino is sneezing and coughing
    Never in my life have I noticed sneezing and coughing as I do now
    Funny or sad, I don't know

    Anyway,I dropped almost 600 and I decided to try a different casino
    Went looking for my wife she was sitting thru a big bonus round on slot
    The smoke in slot area is unbearable
    I sat with her and watched her win 270 bucks and she left mostly because smoke was torture
    She didn't want to go tobhardrock or golden nugget so I walked over with my remaining 400 in chips
    My wife walks over to tell me she's going up
    No smoking at tables allowed
    I tell her it's my roll to wait
    I just needed one number on top but hitnone on bottom
    Made 2 points
    I throw in a red and yell horn high 12
    A bet I never make but needed the 12 for big one bet
    Bingo it hits
    Glad my wife saw it
    Shortly after I hit all the smalls except the 2
    I toss a white chip into stick man and yell 5 dollar horn high aces
    He's holding the white chip and the table started laughing at me but said yeah do it again
    The guy who was yelling yeah do it again is a regular here
    He is a tall shaven head black dude named curly
    He's been here since I've been here and everyone knows him
    He wanted everyone to pass dice to me as I've had some good rolls for him
    I hit aces the 5 other players cheered I think they were all on it
    I said to my wife that 2 just made me 900 bucks
    She was very surprised I had to explain the bet to her
    But I was fucking happy as shit she was there to witness my good luck
    While I didn't make a shitload of points and stayed for 2 more shooters
    I started that table with 410 bucks and left. With 2300 and change
    My original buy in was 1000 so it was a 1300 win

    I cannot believe my luck

    Its bbq time for dinner although I did have a pulled pork sandwich for lunch

    Would not an antihistamine like Zyrtec be better?

    I know what to take I stood behind a pharmacy counter for over 3 decades
    That's what caused the drip

    And now my wife doesn't feel well but she got sick from the smoke

    It took us 25 minutes to get out of parking garage

    Had to wait forc4th elevator before

    But now I see they have giveaways here and I guess handed out free rooms to fill it up here for midweek

    My wife is taking a covid as I type

    I'm going down shortly

    Gonna play bubble first

    Zyrtec, Zyzal, Allegra all have different active ingredients. I rotate them all to keep my histamine attacks at bay. Horrible skin histamine attacks and Hives. Needless to say my sinuses are clear.

    The 4 Histamines H1, H2, H3, H4, all react differently on the body. Hr2 is produced in the stomach and causes the nose to run after I eat.

    We test daily
    I'm starting to feel much better but the smoke is killing us

    We decided earlier to go see golden nugget
    No one playing craps so we left
    Margaritaville next door is a resort not a casino
    So we went for a drive
    Headed over to Gulfport and decided to see if island view casino had craps
    Table was closed at 5 pm
    My wife wanted to play so she got a card and as a new member she got 20 food credit and 20 free play
    So naturally I got a card
    She played our free play left with 15 dollars then went to their deli for dinner which was all comped
    Gave the waitress the 15 dollars we won and she was thrilled
    Back at beau my wife went up I played live table went back and forth
    Left up 25 dollars
    Slipped 200 into bubble and lost it all
    I'm done for the day

    Going from 3000 degrees temp with 100 percent humidity into ice cold casinos
    And believe me the casinos and restaurants here are all ice cold
    And today we had the top down
    It's attacking our sinuses and the smoke is such a downer for us

    Island view in Gulfport no smoking but craps table was closed when we were there

    Live tables down here are dead but restaurants and lounge are packed

    I believe it's just colds this is nothing new to us when we travel

    But we will test daily

    2 hours in walk in clinic
    First thing they do is nurse tests rapid for covid
    She said most people do it wrong so they want to get a more accurate result

    It's just a cold so doc gave her some cough med and something else
    Now I have drive back to ocean springs later because cvs is so busy the said they needed a few hours

    We ate in Mc callisters deli reco by nurse when I asked where I could get a sandwich

    Was ok but not one state beats ny for deli sandwich

    I got back and played hit the big ones bet for 150
    Played too long and left up 325

    I'm going to hang out in room with my wife until we leave for pharmacy
    I told her to stay in bed but she doesn't want me to go alone whatever

    She might go down later I doubt it

    This is our last night in Biloxi and I thought about trying elsewhere to play but I won't leave hotel if she is up here in bed

    But I will get in at least 2-3 more sessions today

    Two weeks with a lot of gaming
    The final tally is plus 2500 give or take 50 bucks
    My wife lost approx 300 or less

    Another great thing that happened this trip is my wife loves to play the individual bubble with me
    She looks forward to it when we find it again
    She was up over 200 after dinner but we played it and she left up 140 it was her money

    It's also good she is feeling better

    We are off to Florida in the morning

    Besides going thru these fucking head colds we are having fun but the travel seems to get harder every year

    And from our high hotel room with all windows and panaramic views we get incredible lightning shows almost every night
    Tonight it is incredible

    It’s 107 here today…I can’t imagine the A/C bill for Las Vegas casinos as they feel like they are 65.

    Yeah but 95 here with dew points of 79 feels a lot hotter then 107

    I'm willing to bet these casinos and hotels get much better electric rates then me you and the small business owners

    Humidity spiked here today. Had some rain in parts. One of the worst days I’ve seen in a long time.

    Southeast humidity…phew. Stay well.

    One thing I found peculiar
    Beau rivage is the only casino I play craps in the past 40 years that pays 36 dollars on a 5 or 9 for a 25 dollar bet
