Extra $500 for Challenge

January 14th, 2007 at 01:44 pm

Sorry it has been a while and but I wanted to share this with you. I live in New York and there is a Casino in Yonkers that's 30 minutes ways and me and my partner went to day to see the place. We set a budget of $100.00 for each of us to spend. We came back with our $100.00 plus an extra $500.00 that would go toward the $20.00 challenge. Gambling sometimes pay off. only sometimes.

Last Balance $42.40
Addition $500.00
New Addition $542.00

Adding another $10.00
