|Jane and Jim have friends who live in Joplin, Missouri who happened to be passing through Maricopa today. Jane asked me to go for a ride , meet their friends, have lunch and perhaps stop at Ak-Chin casino for an hour or so.
Noreen and Fred are a friendly couple who made me feel very welcome to the group. Most of the restaurants we saw in town were of the fast food variety so we opted for the buffet at the casino since our recent experience at casino buffets in Scottsdale had been a positive one.
After lunch I gave Jim and Jane a chance to catch up with their old friends and slipped into the casino for a half an hour of play. I did not win a thing until I hit the shoe bonus on the Sex and The City slot machine for $71.00. Love that shoe bonus!
