Ah the life of Riley! We have a new schedule here – wake up – have breakfast- go to the pool. I love it! We had some running around to do and after a snack and a rest we headed back to Laughlin for Happy Hour at Bubba Gumps.

Next stop the Riverside Hotel and Casino where we earned our free play and coupons. Its an older place but Don Laughlin (who I’m guessing is the namesake of Laughlin) has a car collection there. I’m not a car gal but if I were there were a few I’d be happy to see in my garage! There were vintage slot machines and car memorabilia as well.

My fav was a handwritten letter to Henry Ford thanking him for the great automobile he had made and explaining how dependable it had been. The letter was signed by Clyde Barrow of Bonnie and Clyde. I saw it but evidently there is some dispute as to whether its authentic but is an interesting thought. Clyde had a soft spot for the Model B in the 1930s. Look I found a copy!
