Circus circus in Las Vegas

On one of our trips out West, we visited the casino, Circus-Circus. We were travelling in one of the RVs we owned after we retired. The attraction for us was the campground they had for RVs. Very few casinos offered this facility.

Naturally, Marie and I did a little gambling. We each set aside twenty dollars to play with. Marie chose the slot machines, and I headed for the Crap tables.

Marie got wiped out very quickly playing a dollar machine. She didn’t get a single “hit” in twenty strokes!

I had much better success, and was ahead a little over $200. when a woman walked up, squeezed in beside me,  and asked me to teach her how to play! Folks, this just isn’t done in a casino. I knew she had been sent over to interrupt my shooting. Obviously one of the “bosses” didn’t like to see somebody winning!R1-13

Well, it worked…I quit right then and there, and we left the casino the next morning.



George and his wife, Marie, sailed professionally, chartering boats in the Bahamas, then in the Virgin Islands. They then leased an uninhabited island, Little Thatch, in the British Virgin Islands, and turned it into a small hotel. After six years, they left the island and bought a lovely beachfront property on Jost Van Dyke (BVI) where they built Sandcastle Hotel and the original Soggy Dollar Bar. George is now the author of Incredible Virgin Island Adventure: A True Story.
