Before Christmas, Mama was telling me about when I was little and pinched my finger in something and she had to take me to the doctor in Jacksboro to get it lanced a couple of times before it healed. Christmas Eve I asked what I was doing to get it pinched. Daddy had the car jacked up to change a tire and I put my finger in the jack for some unknown reason. We were laughing about it and Sass said she couldn't believe Daddy would let me around when he was doing that.
I was brilliant child. I threw a piece of metal in the air...it landed on my head. I climbed the windmill tower when I was first walking...Mama had to climb up & get me down. The bottom rung was removed. I stuck my head in a gate pretending to be in jail...couldn't get my head out until they bent the pipes to get me out. I was breaking Coke bottles and cut my finger badly...still have a L shaped scar to remind me.
Now we know the reason Daddy has always been overly cautious about telling us not to do things...like don't stick your finger in a jack, don't walk with your hands in your pockets when it's icy, etc. He learned with me he had to tell me things not to do or I wouldn't have survived.
I've almost made it to 57! Thanks Daddy!

There is the writer. One guy writes on the screen each time after he spins. I still haven't figured out what he is writing, but he takes great pains in writing whatever it is.
Next is the Sneaker. One lady walks away from the machine, turns, jumps back & hits the button. I guess she's sneaking up on it.
My favorite one is the guy who plays the "Lucky Ducky". After he hits the button, he quacks at the machine!
What tricks do I use you ask? I do rub the screen when it spins and have even played "Duck Duck Goose" with the Lucky Ducky. Do any of these help me to win? Not yet, but I just haven't found the right combination. Maybe I need to try the sneak attack, then quack, & finally write on the screen at the same time.
With my luck, I would win the Big Jackpot at the time they were hauling me away in a strait-jacket!

I try to watch "Hoarders" to get inspired, but so far can't seem to get it together. I only have 360 more days to try to get organized this year. Impossible!!

"You are God's gift to the world. You have an effect on different people throughout the world by your actions and deeds."
Wow!! The Whole World!! I always thought of being a gift to your parents and grandparents, but had never considered that the world would be affected by me. Simple minded me, I know.
From this seed, I hope this year I grow to be a better gift to the world. Be kinder, more patient, more caring, more giving.
Happy New Year Everyone!! I love you!
