Big Fat Losers

We are BIG FAT LOSERS!!!!! We didn't win but we sure had fun playing at the casino!


:( sad faces 'cause we didn't hit any jackpots!

Paula Deen's restaurant and store were wonderful!! The food was delicious! We ate dinner and breakfast there the next day. Her signature hash brown casserole was delightful! The fried green tomatoes had a really good batter on them...they were my favorite. The squash casserole, butter beans and cornbread dressing were amazing! Mmmm....yummy!

I bought this butter bell at PD's store. I've wanted one since I saw my mom's.

When you left the restaurant...they say to you, Love & Best Dishes, Ya'll.

video

John & I were bored in the car....the drive home is flat and there is nothing to look at but farm land. So I taped him....at least we had luck somewhere! ;)

About 15 minutes after the video was taken we were talking about the girls and college, and their cars, etc. When a cop coming the opposite way passed us then turned around. John knew he was coming back for him. Sure enough, the lights came on, and he pulled him over! The sheriff was really young....he asked John where we were headed. John told him home that we had been celebrating our birthdays in Tunica. He asked if we had any luck.....John said, No, and apparently our streak of bad luck has continued on. He chuckled and said, Sir, I pulled you over for speeding, you were going 67 in a 55. John told him he didn't realize he was going that fast because we were talking about our girls in college. He said, well, it's not to bad....he took John's license, registration and insurance and went back to his car and ran a check. He came back and said, I'm giving you a warning, you're not what I'm looking for! We thanked him and drove off.

What did he mean John wasn't what he was looking for? 67 in a 55 isn't that bad? Wow! Our luck had changed!

You sure did got lucky! Those tickets can cost a BUNDLE! Mike got one about a year ago and it was unbelievable!
What a fun trip. I have always wanted to try fried green tomatoes (that is one of my favorite movies and it has always made me curious).

April said...

Y'all are TOO CUTE! No luck in the casinos, but a little bit of luck somewhere else, huh? Are your girls going to cringe when they hear what John said? I know my girls would! lol!

So glad you had a fun time and John got out of a speeding ticket. Whew...that was a close one!

Susie said...

Wow!! I can't believe that he was that blunt about profiling.

Keeper of the Skies Wife said...

Nope, Tori we didn't! I can show you the other ones but I think you'd really get grossed out! :)

Melody said...

Jackpot!

Yaya said...

"You're not what I'm looking for"??? I wouldn't know whether to be offended to happy! Lol!

And I would totally do that same thing and tape my husband while driving. We are too alike!

Sorry you didn't win. Bummer.

What an odd thing to say...lol. Getting off with just a warning is lucky indeed though. I love seeing the video of your husband and hearing both your voices, adorable. Fried green tomatoes, yum.

Barbara said...

Wow! You didn't tell me about being stopped by the law. I wonder who or what he was looking for since he let John go. Paula Deen's food was worth all of it I am sure. So glad you guys got away even if it was just overnight.

I'm sorry you didn't win. Sad.

But I am jealous that you got to go to Paula's. And I am happy you got out of the ticket!!

Aubrey said...

Eeeek! A ticket would have sucked. LOL I'm glad he got out of that one.

Oh how I would love to eat at Paula's restaurant.

Aubrey said...
