My luck is improving.........I just scored a cancellation at the Holiday Inn Express!!! Cancelled my "down the road, just a ways" hotel room. Wow, what a wild time. First I lose my Thursday ride up there, then I get lucky & get a new one. Then I get a closer room too!!! Plus, I won a small instant win yesterday, so I am on a roll & what with the full moon to howl at, for GOOD luck tonight, I am planning on a large lucky streak to hit!!!! Can not wait for the convention.

LUCK & LOVE!

I believe there is some kind of list to take cancellations. Jackpot Joe would know more. Please say you will be there KB!!

Update; the convention web site does confirm this.

I am hoping and praying at least 7 people cancel - is that bad? One of my dawgs is on the waiting list and I will sneak her in in my purse if I have to! I did tell Joe that there should have been some kind of wording on the website that they were maxing it out at 600!

And you think that being with all these goofy sweepers is a "break"? looks like KB is planning on corrupting us.

I thought we were going to sit around playing bingo and eating milk and cookies. I would never have said yes if I knew she was planning on this!

Hey, since I am a high school "lunch lady" (cough, cough,.um...child nutritionist) I am not sure KB could corrupt me!!! I had a van full of lunch ladies, headin' back from some food show in St Charles, we came home on highway 94. You know the one with all the wineries??? I swear we did NOT stop at all of them! One was closed! And I am still not sure how that brewery slipped in. Just because I was driving...

No, honestly, I was just trying to figure out which hair net to wear. K.B. needs to know we are just such calm people compared to her wild ways!!!

LUCK & LOVE!
