    Hi Wendy,

    If I was Gold, I'd snap off some fingers and toes, and send them to you to buy a Mercedes with. I think a lovely Red Head would look pretty sporty behind the wheel of a " Benz "..

    I enjoy and love every interaction with people. What else do we really have in Life ? What are we doing right here, right now ??
    The Lord gave me a gift of being a pretty good reader of people, and I sense people who are reaching out in one way or another for something. It's easy to walk away and say, " Not my problem, why get involved " ? I don't see it that way...
    Can't change the world, but I'm sure gonna try to at least a little with whatever time I have left...

    The Matchmaker Rides tonight.

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....

    Mentioned to my grandaughter about the lady I gave my free play to on Sunday, and my observations and thoughts.
    Told her I'd spot her to $ 100 in play and dinner tonight if she wants to tag along and give me her thoughts. She smiled and said, " You know Pops we haven't made a rescue in a long while now, You're On for tonight " !!!! My wife and our great grandaughter are headed down to the Jersey Shore for 3 days so I get to spend time with her Mommy tonight.
    I know Carole -Ann will be there tonight as usual and always plays the same machine, right next to my favorite White Tiger so the stage will be set for the Match Makers introduction and see if we can lend our assistance to a very nice lady.
    If nothing else I guarantee she will have a new friend in my grandaughter and that will lead to a hook up with Ali and Rebecca on Friday nights after work for the weekly " Wind Down" ..
    We'll see how it goes, I think she's worth the effort. Always have more room at the table for those we care about...

    We're across the border from Andy -in NJ we are, and lucky us, not too many years back NJ decided to reintroduce wild turkeys and they've gotten out of control here.

    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...
    Thanks for the story and big Congrats!
