Party is over

Yesterday was a long but enjoyable day. We took a little tour of spots where I used to hunt (now occupied by housing developments of various sorts), then visited the 2 remainng casinos in Lake Charles. Isle of Capri, the 4th of that chain we've visited, is nicer than KC, but not as nice as Boonville. L'Auberge du Lac (locals call it the "barge") is a gambling palace reminiscent of Vegas. We lost $5 each between the two.

Went to the LCHS memorial; the school as it was was combined with another school and changed its mascot in 83. Fancy memorial and lots of memories. It's in a park where I played as a3rd & 4th grader.

Stopped at a Kroger to get some adult beverage & cajun sausage. They hve the widest imaginable selection of can sizes here, everything from 7 oz to 24 oz. We settled on the 10 oz size that fits better in our cooler. Then, it was on the the foootball party. That petered out early as LSU didn't play well and was losing. Got lots of pictures, though.

Main party was out in the clubhouse for a condo where one classmate lives. Lots more pictures, and even a group picture. Got in after 11 and in bed around midnight.

Today, it's off to the Big Thicket, various areas of Texas, on past Shreveport, and we "Hope" an early stop at Bill Clinton's old home town. Perhaps a picture for some of our Democratic friends.
