Come on guys don't make it too easy for me to win that $500 gift certificate because It will be very hard to decide what I want to get and it will mean a lot of hair pulling and I don't have any to spare. 

 

Let's all make sure we show the Merlo family how much we value the great sacrifice that was made for us.  Put some smiles on Charlie's and  Camilla's faces and leave them with memories of a great Christmas.

 

And don't forget, I'd like to keep what little hair I have.

It's funny, my sister years ago used to like to go to the casinos when she visited Vegas, she never played anything, she just liked the action, the nightlife, and the shows. But, she was well known within our family for when she exited the casino, she would play only one game upon leaving, the dollar slot machine they typically have near the doors as you walk out. By tradition she would slip one dollar in the machine, that's it, one dollar, and I am not kidding, on more than several occasions she hit it pretty good. Her biggest haul was around 700 bucks. That is the only time she gambled, upon exiting the casino, with just one buck.

Hey John, thanks for the kind words!


It's that funny?? That's really cool, though! I had a friend over a decade ago, talk me into going to the casino with him. I asked how much to bring, and he said about $200 for blackjack. By the end of the night I had close to $2K stuffed in all my pockets and a bucket. He was so jealous and I wasn't realizing it, but he told me to put a stack on each table as we were heading out-it was a cruiser so we didn't want to be stuck for another 3 hours-I just wanted to go, but I fed into the bait and by the time we got off the boat, I only had $500 left! GRRR ARGHHH Then another time a cousin talked me into going and I had $100. I hate slots but he wanted to play them. I had one dollar left and walked off by myself and while walking down this one aisle, my eye caught a machine on the next aisle over. I literally said to myself that it's calling my name. I put the $1 in and got $100! hahaha I told both of them I was never going again! By the time I went here and there with them, that boat owes me around $3K!!! So, they can keep it and aren't getting any more from me! I knew a gal who used to go every week with her hubby and always bragging about all the money she would win. But I could NEVER get her to tell me how much she spent before the big wins! LOL

 

This is changing the subject, but last week I finally finished that 10-week class! I managed to squeak out a 91.7% at the brutal end! Now, I am looking for some other classes to torture myself further! LOL

Wife, SIL and I were exploring the area around here. Happened on to a casino in the woods. The ladies needed to powder their respective noses so, we went in. I bought $20 in quarters, sat down at a machine and started feeding it. The girls were only gone about 10 minutes. The $20 was gone in 7. 

Most expensive bathroom break I ever had. And, I didn't even get to tinkle.

As of today, we are at 66%. Better, but we're still not there, yet.

 

Only 30 days left, but let's not wait until the last minute.
