Lessons Learned

A smart gambler knows when to call a bluff and when to fold.

I thought that I was a smart gambler, but I was not.

I no longer gamble.

My judgment is not the best.

I in my younger days enjoyed gambling.

Only once do I remember leaving the Las Vegas or Indian casinos a winner.

I am a crap-shooter.

Once I held and rolled the dice for 1/2 an hour.

I was making pass after pass, the people betting on me were making “oodles” of money.

I wasn’t.

I didn’t “press” my bets as they did.

I really don’t go (or didn’t go) to Las Vegas to win money. I had enough of my own.

My and Betty’s lifestyle does not require a “HUGE” amount of money (with Betty gone, very little).
