Happy Birthday, Momma

No, it wasn't a big surprise party or anything like that, but we did take off and drive over to the Race Track in Vinton, Louisiana, and feed the slots for a little bit. The weather was beautiful, and it was a nice drive over. The other day I had gotten a notice from a little email that today would be my lucky day and I would win big in games of chance. So, since the prediction was to be on Mamma's birthday and we enjoy the casino now and then, we thought we'd test it out and see. Well, I won't be retiring on my winnings, but I picked up maybe $50, less lunch. Mom didn't come out too far behind. We were a little disappointed to find that the buffet was closed, and evidently has been ever since the hurricane, but since we haven't been over there in quite a long time, we didn't know that or else we probably would have driven on to Kinder to the Alabama-Coushatta Casino, which is about another hour and a half further into Louisiana. Nevertheless, they had a little food court and that sufficed for lunch. Still, it was a very nice day and I'm happy we were able to spend it together.
