“If it weren’t for bad luck, I’d have no luck at all” – George Jetson
In “honor” of the second of three Friday the Thirteenths we will have this year, today’s Photo Friday topic is “unlucky”.
Recently my friend Donna visited me from California. It was her first time out here. We had a GREAT time! This visit, though five days long, was about a month too short. We never have enough time, no matter how much time we have!
A reasonable and lovely drive’s distance away from where I live is a delightful little Victorian mining town called “Cripple Creek”. They have legalized gambling there. It’s like a little Las Vegas, really. All the lights, and bells, and clangings of Vegas, but at about a millionth the size. Donna loves her some Vegas, so we, along with my sister Whitney, decided to make a day of it and go throw some money down a rathole.
I say throw money down a rathole, because I never, NEVER, EVER win at gambling. So I try to make my 20 or 30 bucks last as long as possible while I watch other people win! BITTER!!!! Donna in the end didn’t lose too much, but she did win during the course of the day. Whitney it seems won at every machine she played. I think she won the most on the penny slots, which is crazy, but true.
Here are Donna (left) and Whitney (right) in fronto of the Brass Ass…
