Wednesday, January 30 – Monday was Casino Night at Leisure Valley Ranch. Of course, Marsha was corralled to work with her friend, Angie. They are selling tickets for prize drawings spread-out during the evening.

There were about 100+ who showed up for the event. This is the first year for Casino night. There was Blackjack, Roulette, horseracing, dices games, putting game, etc. Something for everyone.

But working didn't stop Marsha from joining Paul in a little Blackjack. We were using play money ($10 for $1500 in play money) so betting $20, $40 or even $100 was fun and not a budget buster.

At the end of the evening, we finished with about $4000 which we used to win a bid on a life-time cup of coffee and a $10 gift card at Texas grocery store HEB. It was a fun evening and a good time with friends.

On Wednesday, we met up with fellow blogger, John a.k.a. Shoeless Joe, at the Egg & I for lunch. We've traded blog comments with John for some time now, and it was good to be able to put a face with a name. We really enjoy John's comments on our blog because of his wit and good sense of humor.

Meeting John was a great. We enjoyed lunch and a long talk. John enjoys the “Good Life” here in South Texas and shared with us some of the many experiences he's had in his life. It was a fun time and one we will remember.

Thanks for stopping by. Hope to see y'all back real soon. Have a great day!
