Taking A Gamble on the New Year.

Earl and I kicked off the New Year with family today, joining my Mom’s side of the family for a little get together. My cousin and her daughter were up from Florida, so we all had the chance to visit and laugh and just basically have a good time.

On the way home, Earl and I decided that we need to see if 2005 is going to be a lucky year for us. We stopped off at the local casino to test Lady Luck.

2005 is going to be a good year.

We came home ahead of the game, with both of us winning about the same amount of money. I didn’t play foolishly this time, but I did take the time to spread myself all over the casino, playing roulette, a little bit of slots, some of the money wheel and then more roulette. I like to think that I played smart. I sang along with the piped in 80s music. I commented to the man next to me that he had a very nice goatee (he did). I think he appreciated the remark. I tipped the roulette dealer whenever I won. I thanked the universe for smiling on me tonight. It was all good.

I’m so looking forward to 2005!


I’ve added a guestbook to the site. Now if people don’t have a particular blog entry they wish to comment on, they can just throw something nice in the guestbook.
