That's what my father-in-law would say about me when I won a hand in a card game!!!
Last week a group of us gals decided we'd take a drive to Bullhead City CA, and Laughlin NV.
Bullhead city was the destination for Sam's and a few other retail stores that are not in Lake Havasu.
After shopping we found ourselves at the Avi Casino' which is about 12 miles from the rest of the casinos in Laughlin.
If you are a member of their players club, you can get a great breakfast for $.99 cents.
Ham, eggs, hash browns, toast...and its good!!!
The joke is we drive 70 miles for a $.99 cent breakfast.
We had lots of laughs all the while we were riding, and shopping!! The joke of the day was: "do we tip our traditional 15-20% which would amount to a few cents; or do we at least let a dollar.
That would make the tip more than the cost of breakfast.
Anyway, we were generous to our server.
After breakfast, the slot machines were our next destination.
I decided I would spend $20.
Now, you all have to realize I do not go to casinos very often. I don't understand how slot machines work.
All those betting lines, and zig-zag arrows, I don't get it.
I looked around for an easy machine, with just three spinning wheels and one line across.
After a little bit of searching I found one.
And a nickel machine at that.
After a few tries, I found the spot to put my twenty in. It didn't register quite right!! It only registered a few coins.
Oh well I thought, it should work itself out.
So I pulled the lever and it registered 6 or 8 coins, the next pull it registered 14 coins, on the third pull it registered 22 coins.
Thinking to myself, "I don't really don't know what I'm doing, maybe I should cash out.
It spit out big silver dollar kind of disks.
I thought I must have won $22, which would make me $2.00 ahead. I found the change booth, asked for two $10's and the rest in ones.
She looked at me kind of funny and asked, "you want two $10's and 90 dollars in one's?"
OMG I won $110.!!!!
The machine I thought was a nickel machine was a $5.00 machine. Well I took my winnings and marched right out of that casino!!!
I'm sure I will be able to find a nice piece of 'bling' to purchase at one of the swap meets.
Like my father-in-law said............"more luck than sense"!!!
And that's the way it is................
