Bob got lucky on his birthday!

At the casino! His birthday was on Tuesday and after lunch, we headed to the casino. After a couple of hours he called me. "Guess how much I just won?" And he started giggling....yes, giggling. I knew it had to be pretty good and asked how much. $500!! On one hand of video poker. He won a couple other hands and walked out of the casino with over $800!!

We took $400 to gamble with, so even with my bad luck he doubled our money and paid for our entire trip. Yeah for birthday luck! Here he is with his winnings.
We really had a great time and it is even better that it was all paid for by the casino. Yeah!

Wow! Good deal! I think the most I've ever gambled with was nickels at a Las Vegas airport during a layover or buying a lottery card once...

McVal, I manage to go to the casino about once a year...either with Hubby or my best friend. Years ago, my bf and I quit giving each other Christmas and birthday gifts and just save the money for our trip. This time it was Hubby's birthday gift.

The money we use NEVER comes out of the savings account or the emergency fund. We only gamble with as much as we are willing to lose and I consider it an entertainment expense.

Holy Cow! That was great. I've never heard of birthday luck but now I'm a believer!

Frances said...

I never heard of birthday luck, either, SonyaAnn. I think Hubby made it up. But I like it!

SonyaAnn said...

I hope he makes up other good stuff too!

Frances said...

He does, SonyaAnn. LOL!

Hi, Diane. Thanks for coming by! I am pretty tight fisted with our money, too, but we put aside casino money and I go about once a year. Sometimes with Hubby, sometimes with a girlfried.

We never take more money than we are willing to leave there.

I took $20 and came back with 23-my first and only time at a casino a few years ago.

Thanks for stopping by the blog. Miss you guys :-) And yep a moment with him is better than a lifetime without him.
