Trip to the mountains




My dad is a process server, meaning he’s the one who serves legal papers to people, things like summons to appear in court. Yesterday, he had some papers he needed to serve up in the mountains and asked if I wanted to go with him to keep him company. He served at a few casinos and I got to see lots of pretty scenery and some really cute towns.

I also gambled for the very first time! In the past, the closest I had come to gambling was the Las Vegas airport, which has slot machines in the terminals, but I didn’t use them, just looked. Yesterday, I went into my first casino and bet a whole dollar on the penny slots! I won big, 8 times my bet. Yes, I won $8 at the casino! It was probably the only time I’ll ever gamble, but it was a fun experience.

  1. Blackhawk is awesome, huh? OF course, I can remember when Blackhawk was by-passed to go to Central City, because it was a little tourist town that was so cool. But gambling had Blackhawk take all of Central City’s luster. But I love going up there still!
