I'm a Funeral Services graduate embarking on a new career. I graduated high school in 1981, served honorably in the United States Navy from 1982-1986, been married since 1986, and have one son. I've relocated to a new state and have begun working in my chosen profession of Funeral Services, and I've never been happier.

Granimore, The High Roller

My wife and I just returned from a gambling cruise. It's one of those operations where they ferry you out to the big casino boat anchored in international waters. We pretty much broke even, which is a miracle, considering neither one of us has ever done anything like this before. My wife and I played the quarter slots, and we did ok. Win some, lose some. Every once in a while I would wander over to the blackjack tables ($5 per hand was the cheapest) and play a few hands. Again, I went up and down, just like at slots. Ultimately, we came home with about the same amount of money as when we left, maybe a couple of bucks extra. While we were standing in line for the shuttle back to land, I put a dollar into the slot machine right by me and won $20. We had a good time and will be going back again sometime.

I'd be happy to break even. Never much for gambling myself. My son and daughter-in-law go once in a while and like you, they are happy to break even most times. Glad you enjoyed your day off.

I was thrilled to come out no worse off. I anticipated losing everything in the first half hour, especially since this my first shot at gambling.
I guess it didn't hurt to have played tons of video blackjack on my computer over the years.
