LUCKY - YES - THAT IS ME !!!

Three Carrots! I got Three Carrots!!! Right in a row! WOOT. Now, where the heck do the little cut up ones come pouring out from????? They don't call me Lucky for naught!

Yes we must confess. We have a nickle slot machine .. a real one from Nevada, we just had to promise not to try to make a living off it! I tell you what ... it was already set for its payoff when we got it, and every kid who has ever come and given it a try has gotten cured of gambling-fever very fast! No matter how many nickles we give them to start, they lose them all, including their winnings, before too long! But it is fun while they last.

This is one of the old electro-mechanical, one-armed bandits, and it is quite a fright to open it up and look inside! It has failed a couple of times and I have to call the guy in Nevada to walk me through the fix. First he told me we weren't using it enough! ... and then he said to be sure to end on a win before we unplug it!

Mr. Weather tells us that Saturday is our big day!!!!! We will FINALLY break 60! Hang on Sloopy!

from over at the parsley patch ...re: Ian Tyson... ok, funny story, last summer, Sylvia came to sing at SVFF (shelter valley folk festival) (of which I'm pretty involved in). I was out sourcing eggs for our kitchen, we needed about 600 for the weekend... the person I ended up finding was Ian's old vet... apparently Ian and Sylvia had a ranch in our county for a number of years... (lol, well before I was born) but yes, I have heard that song! oh man, I'm going to have to dig it up somewhere and have a good sob with it!

We think you're going to have to change the name of your blog to the Houseful of Rabbits Resort and Casino! Hee Hee! What time is the veggie buffet?

Rabbits and gambling, that's quite a mix! Never a dull moment.
