Welcome to the world of Grandmothers Kathie.
Loved the dog food comments. You can tease her about this when she is older. I have lots of teases in my memory bank.
My grandchildren are teenagers now and only my youngest will cuddle, so take those kisses when you can, they are priceless.

Slot machines and video poker nowadays bring more than 70% of the total income of casinos. But why they are popular so? This question is easily answered. When the slot machines there are huge jackpots and the odds are huge.
