Until I went back to my home town last week, I had no idea that they had slot machines or casinos. I always enjoy the process of losing a little money in a slot machine or two, and my friend, with whom I stayed loves it too. She and my daughter and I went to the casino on Saturday night. I didn't lose any money this time, and I even won a little - but my lucky daughter - who always wins something - won $1,054! Why couldn't that have been me???
I got something else while I was there......smoker's throat. There were soooo many people smoking that it was impossible to escape it, and after I had been there 15 minutes, I felt as if I had taken up smoking again (after 28 years of being a non-smoker.) I tried hard to find a machine that didn't have two smokers on either side, and several times I had to move to another machine in order to escape it. Tell me......is there a no smoking casino anywhere in the world? I sure would patronize one, if it exists!
This was my second day back at work after a six-week hiatus, and I worked 10 hours and 10 minutes! Mel (my boss) has 2 huge weddings and a 50th anniversary party tomorrow. I did 4 flower girl halos (head wreaths), 33 corsages (10 of them wristlets), 38 boutonnieres and 11 arrangements! Two other women, and Mel, worked all day long on all types of centerpieces, altar arrangements and other stuff. I go back at 9am tomorrow. Right now, I am going to run a bathtub full of the hottest water I can muster and soak in it for at least 30 minutes. See you later......
