I am a winner

I had a hot date Saturday night.
We had a fabulous dinner at Blue Tractor BBQ in Ann Arbor. A can of Stroh's beer for $2.50. A plate of beef brisket. A basket of warm potato chips. A pint of locally brewed beer. Nice. Then, we hit the Saline Area Fire Department Casino Night. The tables were surrounded by some of Saline's tip top people. These people were serious about their chips. A few friends tried to explain how to play craps. I still don't get it. Maybe it's that I really don't care.
I'm not a gambler, but I was a winner. Jim and I stuck our two hundies into a raffle and we won a package at Planet Rock, a few personal radios and some Wendy's coupons. I can't wait to try rock climbing, actually. Even though my pinky is still crooked (thanks to a volleyball game where I tried to spike a ball popped up to the net by Gretchen Driskell. I broke my finger. poor me), I think I can give climbing a try. Why not?
Congrats to the Casino Ladies who planned a super fund raiser for Friends of SAFD.
