Wish Me Luck!

Have I ever been busy!

I'm pleased to report that my children are back in school - YAY! Spring break would be better if it was in summer so I could end them outside..

And. I am going to a casino tonight!

I've never been to one - an actual casino - before.

When I turned 18 my dad, granny, an aunt and an uncle took me to a small town bar in Manitoba. dad wanted to buy me my first legal drink ( I had a coke - I've never been an alcohol fan) Anyway there was a single slot machine at the bar that day and me and my aunt went over and popped in a quarter. it was a first time for both of us. Nothing happened when we put the quarter in so we tossed in another one and pulled the handle.

All of a sudden a siren went off and lights at the top of the machine were flashing. Thinking we had broken the machine, we hightailed it back to the table. Then we high-fived as we successfully pleaded innocence when the manager came to our table asking if we were the ones who had set off the machine.

This time? If the lights go off, at least I will know enough to stay there and collect my winnings!

(FYI - we are all taking 20 bucks. when the 20 is done, so are we)

How funny. I have another friend going to the casino for the first time tonight. Also with $20.

That's all I ever take when I go, too. Which is about once every 3 years or so.

I'm a big spender.
