May 7, 2014 – Wednesday
Nice relaxing day at the campground. We drove the rental car to the second thrift store in town late this afternoon, just to use the car. Bill got a new crossword puzzle book, dogs got a new stuffed Chihuahua toy, and I got a soft sweatshirt. As we were leaving, we saw two large geese in the parking lot, squawking and looking out of place.
Then we went back to the RV and I looked at maps while Bill was on his iPad.
About 6 pm, Bills Marine buddy, Gene, and his wife, Gayla, drove over to our campground. We are going to dinner at the Hollywood Casino in Columbus tonight. After a visit in the RV and meeting the dogs, they drove us to the casino.
Bill and I signed up for the “players card” then got a free play on a certain slot machine. We each won $5 worth of credit on our cards. We sat down at a video machine and I lost my $5 free credit in about five minutes. Gayla and I were sitting in a different area than Bill and Gene. When we went to join them, Bill was playing video poker and was winning, so he cashed out, put another $20 cash in and started playing again and cashed out again.
We had the dinner buffet, which was very good. Thank you Gene an Gayla!
Thanks for a great evening and dinner, Gayla and Gene!
