Bells And Whistles

The night before dad's procedure he wanted to take us to his favorite casino, "Muckleshoot".  (This is the Pacific Northwest so there are plenty of casinos. )  I have such a hard time gambling.  I keep thinking that I could be doing something with this money... like buying groceries.  When I look around the room I don't see many people that have the same quandry.   *Flash* ding-ding-ding *Flash* coo coo sounds and bright colors.  It's hypnotizing.

I think dad was able to forget about his procedure for a little bit.  A teeny-tiny bit.  A little distraction at .30 cents a pop isn't such a bad deal.

  1. Hi Ann,
    How's your Dad doing? I've been thinking about your family, trusting that everything is ok.

  4. Whenever I took my mom to the casino in Atlantic City, I always won. The few times I went into a casino since she died, I always lost immediately.
    I haven't been for years now.

    my MIL can rock the casino and walk the casino but can't walk at home sometimes.
