Twenty Benjamins

Day 156/Year 2
I had some really good luck today. The best. Ever. My friend Marlene and I went to Twin River Casino in Rhode Island. I didn't even really want to go, but she did. Marlene is my gambling buddy. She'd also be my drinking buddy if I drank a lot. But, I don't. She'd be a really good drinking buddy I bet. In fact, I know she would. :-) But, that's beside the point. The point being..........I hit a jackpot on a 2 cent slot machine. I was destined to win. Why? Well, the name of the machine was "Money Storm", and well, with  Hurricane Irene coming up the coast, why not have some luck on a machine about storms? And I did. Two thousand and eighty dollars worth of luck!!!
I'm not a big gambler. I only brought one hundred fifty dollars with me today. I couldn't lose today even if I tried. I've never been so lucky. I came home with twenty-five hundred dollars.
Now I'm just trying to decide what lens to buy myself............:-)
Well, that is if there's any left over after this wedding............:-)


  1. Congratulations!!! You are one lucky duck!!! Couldn't have happened to a more deserving person. Ben looks happy for you too : )

  2. Thanks Diane. That was sweet of you, and yes, Ben is smiling along with all of the other Ben's. They are happy Ben's. :-)

  3. Way to go girlfriend. Wish I had been with you.But getting up at 3:00AM is not my cup of tea. Happy for you !!

  4. No No!! We didn't leave at 3 am this time. We didn't leave until 8:30 am. :-)
    Thanks so much!!
