Re: Don't Panic

As exultant as I was over hitting that five-way parlay in Vegas a few weeks ago, I had to wait until the cash was actually in my hands. The sports book had closed by the time we got back to the casino after dinner that last night I was there, and I was leaving too early to cash it the next morning. So I had to send it in by mail. It then took a few weeks to get me my loot, but they paid up. Now to find something to buy.
