Sandra's A Winner

Sandra's been in a funk the last few days. We were watching the Sharks game on Saturday night when an ad came on for Cache Creek. I asked her if she wanted to go and she hemmed and hawed a bit before telling me she wanted to go to Jackson. It just so happened a commercial came on for the Rancheria right then.
So, she put her makeup on and we got in the car. Its not quite a 2 hour drive each way and we stopped for gas and a bite to eat.
Finally we got to the casino and I wandered around while Sandra lost a bit at the black jack table. I then bought in at the same table while Sandra went to play slot machines. I played 10 hands, won one, pushed 3 and lost 6. At a $10 table. So, I went and ate a delicious hamburger at Uncle Bud's and people watched for a while and drank the refillable sodas.
Sandra finally found me in line for a coffee and she had a couple of hundred dollar tickets from the slot machine. She gave me one and dragged me over to the machine. I put in $20 and cashed out for a hundred. Whoo hoo. We fed another $40 into the machine, cashed out our tickets and went home winners.
We brought Chico The Dog with us so he wouldn't howl in the house and bother the neighbors. He did really good both ways and was a good boy. Once we got home I let him sleep on the bed with us and he was a happy dog.
