It ain’t easy being a pilgrim in Vegas.

Following the tradition of my four Fathers. I mean, our poor forefathers, we played roulette on the eve of Thanksgiving.
 The dealer {coach} was fairly strict. The house {coach} was making a killing on the gamblers. Talk about a pitt boss; ruthless. 
 The dealer had a scratch sheet a mile long for all our ‘oweing’.  It was not a who was winning kind of game. It was a who was losing the least kind of game. 
The pitt boss never felt the need to bring in a cooler.
My debt was nearing 75k.  
Want to guess how I’ll be repaying that note?
Yep, turkey sammies, casseroles and pie for life. Not to mention fetching is pails of water. 
Damn. It ain’t easy being a pilgrim. 
Who knew?
Hershey kisses were not harmed in the playing of this game. At least not on my watch.

This was not a ‘family tradition’ for Thanksgiving….but we are open for new stuff around here.
Bring it.

Happy cyber Monday!

  1. Hmmmmmm—are you two really in Vegas???? Not a place I think about going during Thanksgiving… (Of course, that is not a place I'd choose to go anytime of the year! ha)Did you at least wear your Pilgrim hat????? haHugs,Betsy


  2. Love this idea!! I'm going to steal it for next Thanksgiving! P.S. Quit teasing me! I now fully expect you to come up to my cabin this summer. I will get the wine ready. Scout is expecting to sit on your lap.


  3. When we were first married, we would go to his parents' house almost every Friday night. They either cooked or took us out to eat and then we played poker. They had a HUGE bowl of pennies – – – almost too heavy to lift. We each got a couple of handfuls and just had fun. Of course, at the end of the night, all the pennies went back in the bowl.


  4. This sounds like fun, and could well turn into a tradition. That is, if you don't mind losing to the pit boss! We usually pay trivial pursuit, pretty tame compared to your games.Hope you had a super holiday.
