    Pocono Sunrise and a Surprise.

    Double dip at Mt.Airy Casino this weekend. Wife wants the 3 weekly promotional installments on the bedroom Comforter set and I picked up the 1st one on Friday night, and added $ 138.00 to the White Tiger retirement fund in the process.
    My biggest weekly free play is on Sundays so decided to make an appearance at sunrise and get back home before the Rooster Crows.
    Hardly any traffic at 4:00 am so couldn't believe it when the car in front of me slams on his brakes and smokes his tires to stop. I had enough distance behind him to slow down and stop and see that he had hit a wild turkey which had actually come through his windshield and was now in his car flopping around. 75+ miles per hour and a big Tom Turkey made one hell of a mess in his car.
    Thank God he was okay, but really shook up. I called 911 for him and parked behind him with my Flashers on. Took the Troopers about 10 minutes to arrive and by then he had contacted AAA for roadside assistance as the windshield was shattered and the front of the car looked like a disaster with Turkey debris all over ..
    The driver took my info in case he needed a witness, and I left .

    Arrived at the casino, grabbed a Starbucks, and settled down for some White Tiger therapy. Free play wouldn't kick in until 6:00 am so I had about 15-20 minutes yet and threw in $ 40.00 to occupy my time.
    About 15 spins in @ $.75 per I got a bonus round with Mountains and Wild Flowers both wild for $ 17.00. Sweet !! Now the multiplier round and I'm praying for a x10 multiplier and choose the Pink Box.
    I wind up getting the Crown instead and when it stops spinning it says " MAJOR " , award for $ 719.00. I'm a Happy Man !! Look at my watch and it's still not quite 6:00 am and time for my Free play, so I decide to just relax and relive the moment and sip my Starbucks. ..
    A lady I see quite often and had been playing Friday night sits down to play the machine next to me and comments, '' Looks like you picked up right where you left off Friday night , I wish I could be that lucky " ...
    I cashed out at $ 728.00, punched in my Free Play of $ 65.00 and down loaded it on to the machine, told her to slide over to my seat as I was making her a gift of my free play, and told her to have fun and maybe I would see her next Friday night ....
    Made it home in time to have some Bacon and Eggs with my wife. The Lord rewarded my good deed by letting the Packers beat the Cowboys last night...
    Happy. Happy. Happy...

    You are surrounded with good Karma, my friend. All perfect timing.
    I hope your free play netted another major for your friend! That’s amazing.

    Congratulations on the white tiger win. You’re a good guy Bettin Man. I hope the lady won something!!
    Jo and I are going to Mt Airy Saturday. She has some free play to use and we’re hoping that they will give both of us some for November because we are attending a 3 day Mah Jongg Tournament there November 3rd to the 5th. It would be nice to have some extra money. They are giving each of the tournament players $30.00, so at least we’ll have something. I will have to give your white tigers a try.

    Bettin' Man... those turkeys can do major damage to a vehicle!! Where I live ( right next door to Packer territory) wild turkeys are becoming more and more prevalent. Around 3/4 of a mile down the road from me, hubby's parent's farm has a roving band of them... about 20 or so last count. God sure has you busy these days as His sidekick... blessing many people in the most random ways. May your winning streaks continue.... and also your good deeds.

    Thanks Rich,

    Several moons ago I wrote about " Returning a Favor " from some 50 years ago, and the few times I have done that I have been blessed with adding some wonderful people to our lives. Mark and Ali, Rebecca and Tyler, have become part of my family as a result, and Mark now works for me , and has become a wonderful addition to my company in just a few short months.
    The look of amazement and gratitude in the eyes of the young lady I gave my free play to Sunday was worth 100 times more to me than the amount I gave her. I know I'll see her Friday night and hope she has a wonderful tale to tell me. Pretty lady, no ring on her finger, seems to spend her time alone playing slots on weekends, who knows, maybe my Grandaughter has another " Match Maker " in the future here, she's 2 for 2 so far.
    Meeting and helping people are the TITO's I most like to cash....

    Thanks Sweety,

    I got an email Monday from the gentleman I stopped to help. Seems he was on his way to Scranton, Pa. ( about another 35- 40 miles from where he had the mishap) to see his mother who was in the Hospital there. He had called his wife who came and got him where they had towed the car to and they made the visit just a couple hours later. Turns out he lives about 2 miles from me and we're getting together tomorrow night on the way home from work for a " cocktail " ...
    So much wrong with the world, why not try to do some good when you can, and make a new friend along the way.
    Watch out for those Turkeys, Steph. Estimate on his car is $ 2,900. Not so much for the windshield , but what " Old Tom " did to the interior after he exploded, and the clean up needed.

    Thanks Cathy,

    I wish you luck this weekend in the tournament and each and every time you push a button. There are only two White Tiger machines there and they are right near the entrance to the new Sports Book in a rotary dsiplay about 3 rows in. Can't miss the one I play as I have most of the paint wore off the numbers...
    Have a fun day...
