Well DH and I went out last night. (rare occasion) Well. We have "pull tab" machines, they are like lottery tickets that you open....well I told DH I wanted $20 to put in the machine at the bar where we he gave me a $20 bill. I asked him which machine to put it in and he said he didnt I walked to the machines and stuck my money in got my 20 tickets out and went and sat down. Him and his friend were talking so I just opened them up.

I got about 5-7 opened when I opened a big winner...I just held it and opened the rest. It didnt say how much it was worth, but I knew it was more than $100. So I walked past the machine again to look at the winner payout and that ticket was worth $599!!! I got 2 $2 winners so from my $20 investment I got $603 in winnings. (I gave DH his $20 back..and kept the rest) I didnt tell him until we left how much I won.


So an hour later we went to another bar in town and I decided to put $20 in thier machine...well DH saw me and yelled from across the bar to get away from the machine....I laughed and told him I was playing with MY money and he laughed....
So I put my $20 in that machine and go to open them up and 2 of my friends were watching me...I opened up a $350 winner!!! I could hardly believe it! So for $40 I won $953 last night!!!!

So today I am going to take my son, foster son and my little girl to the carnival! I get off work at noon, and it is an hour drive so they can enjoy from 1pm-5pm for like $20 each for all the my winnings are going to pay for that plus part of my vacation next month!!!!!


So all of you who had your mind in the gutters.....;) I did that

It's been about 6 months since i last went. This time I have my glasses! No more squinting at the screen to see which ball came up (and dabbing the wrong number) lol.

I only have one really big night where I won 600 on a bonus game :D Can't complain about that. That was new years of 2007. We used to go about twice a month, but since we've been saving for Hawaii in August - we haven't gone.

Now that we saved enough (almost) and i got a bonus award from work, I think I'll use that :D

Angie and I will be there from around noon on the 22nd and leave the morning of the 24th so there is a possibility we could meet up. It is my mother in law's 75th birthday and she is paying for the rooms and entertainment...not exactly sure what she has planned. I do know there will be about 10 of us and some are going to see Jersey Boys...Angie and I have already seen it so she opted out...not sure what day that was...and she is at church for bell choir right now.

Could work....keep in touch ~ Gary

Well I took the boys and little girl to the carnival, then yesterday I took my MIL to the casino. She likes to go but can not sit on the bus that runs....she has some allergies and the perfume about kills I thought it would be a good time for her and I to go for a ride. She watches our little one almost every saturday while I work and she is SOOOOO good to all of us that she deserved a day out.
BTW-neither of us won while we were there....

You are already a winner when you have an MIL that you get along with and are grateful enough for to do something like that with. Congrats!!!!
