My readers help make writing these columns worthwhile.
Memories --- the good, the bad and the ugly -- keep those casino experiences alive. They help make up for the losses and they make sweet the victories.
One reader who signs herself JennaRox is especially delightful with her remarks and remembrances.
She recently wrote to me about an experience in Las Vegas. Her sister was pregnant in Orange County, CA. and she was in Vegas partying and riding limos while her sister awaited the arrival of her baby in California. Well, the stork came in early and her sister went into labor.
JennaRox needed to get to California muy pronto to be with her sister on this important event and Las Vegas didn't let her down.
Strings were pulled, casino executives got involved and she was able to get to the hospital in time to help her sister welcome a new infant into being.
I love it when my readers share their memories and thoughts with me and the members of this website.
Gamblers have many things in common. Heart. A desire to win. A willingness to take risks. Not being afraid to live on the edge.
My readers can relate to my casino experiences. And they have been sharing their own experiences with me, which I appreciate.
Gambling is not an experience that everyone appreciates. It is simply not part of their lifestyle, something I appreciate and accept.
But for those who are willing to take the risks, I welcome them aboard.
JennaRox, thanks for the memories. I hope your sister's child makes it to the final table. I know youo will be in the kid's corner.
