“Went to Tivoli –

WON THE JACKPOT !!!!

Put it all back again though!”

Every so often “Lady Luck” has smiled on me.

However, after she leaves “Uncle Stupid” invariably visits and slaps me around the face.

I can remember this win. It was on one of the one-armed bandits (slot machines) located below the Tivoli Gardens’ concert hall building. Three cherries came up, the lights on the top of the machine flashed, I pushed a button and someone came and gave me a huge bag of Danish coinage. I don’t know how much it was, but it probably would have paid for a meal or two I’m guessing.

That evening taught me a lesson.

Now, if I am ever lucky at a slot machine, or a roulette table, or at bingo I simply walk away with my winnings rather than “reinvesting” any of it.

Basically, I kick Uncle Stupid in the nuts.
