Casino Gambling As Entertainment

Occasionally, my spouse and I endulge in a sin known as gambling. Indian casinos abound in Mich., and we can reach one in less than 2 hrs from our home. The experience is more than placing a bet. By observation, you can see why these places draw thousands of people from all walks of life. Most are older, as older people have more discretionary money, and old people don't need marathon fitness levels to push a button. They as humans however, still have a need to compete and hopefully win! Risk is always exciting, because even if you don't win-you were in the game. We keep it to a recreational level, tracking the win/loss so it doesn't get painful. If you can't do this, DO NOT GO. Enjoy your week end! Oh, and if I don't post a blog on how we did-quess what happened!

Hope you win big, neighbor! (I am in Indiana.)

I read about a condition where people pass out because they forget to eat, drink fluids and use the restroom. Now, that is a problem! My husband won't let me go that far. He wants to leave as soon as we win $10. I want to go for the big money! lol. Of course, we don't have the discretionary income. Maybe because we aren't older?

Good thing I have him, huh?

lynda- I'm married to a Dutch girl. Have you ever heard the espression "Tighter than bark on a tree"? She enjoys the trips to the casino, but seldom wins. She too, would head for home at the first sign of profit, but we never win early!

lol. I haven't heard that expression, but my family is also Dutch, and my mom would say my brother spent money like he had a hole in his hand.

I have a book of Dutch Proverbs. I will have to look that one up. :)

Oh, and I wanted to share this with you based on the comment you left in my blog. I created this for my dad, and don't update much, but it could help.
