What do you do with your friends?

You know how some people go to Happy Hour with friends, and sit and talk and have fun, and then go home a little lighter in the wallet and having consumed a fair amount of calories?

Well, other people go to a bingo hall, and sit and talk and have fun, and go home with this:

Yeah, that's MY money!!!
I actually won one of the bigger jackpots. It was/is like a dream...I had a bingo worker come over and count out $1199.00 in front of me. It takes quite a fair amount of time and it's the most wonderful time ever.
We have a bingo rule where if we win over $100, we give 10% to the table, so that the friends who are with you who might not win can still feel genuinely happy because if one of us wins-we all win. So, from my $1199, I gave up $120 to the table and since my son was with me, I gave him $100. Friend Nancy rejected her share of the 10% and so we all split it. I won another small bingo later and won another $29.00, which is chump change when you have over $900 in your purse, but still really fun! Nancy won (for the first time ever) $50.00, her son won $75.00, and my son Andrew won $37.00.
And THAT is a good night at bingo, folks!
Did I mention that I just bought a vacation package to Puerto Vallarta for $1280.00? I have just won enough money to almost completely pay off the trip!!
Andrew is convinced that he is a good luck charm and we should go back soon. We'll see....I feel like I have been really lucky this year and at some point, my luck will run out.


  1. Thanks for stopping and by and commenting on my blog.
    I'm adding you to my list! Tigger has appeared in my blog a few times. He's the quirkiest cat I've ever had (he's my 5th)

    Congrats on your Bingo winnings. I play cards with the senior citizens in my Mom's winter resort park,but I've never won THAT much!

    I just wrote you a really long comment about thinking your text to me said $120, needing $900 bucks and that the bingo hall is a lot closer to me now at my new house.... but then it got deleted. sad.
