Mālama i kahi Dime e Lilo i kahi Dālā

KahawaiI ka pō nei ua nānā wau i ka hoʻomaka (akā ua haʻo wau i ke koena) o ka hōʻike ʻo Big Big a Oprah. Ua aloha au i ka manaʻo - hāʻawi i kekahi me $ 2,500 a me ke kanaka nāna e hana ka ʻoi loa o ka hana ma ka hoʻonui ʻana i ka hapa nui o ke kālā e lanakila.

Ma ka puʻuwai o ka hōʻike e pono ʻoe e hele a hui me ke kanaka a i ʻole nā ​​poʻe āu e kōkua nei. ʻO ka hopena, ʻaʻole kaomi wale e hoʻokō - ʻaʻole ia e hoʻokuʻu i ka poʻe i laila ʻoe e kōkua.

ʻO ka mea aʻu e heluhelu ai ma ke ʻano o ka ukali ʻana he mea ʻole loa ka $ 2,500. ʻO ka $ 2,500 wale nō e hiki ai iā ʻoe ke hopohopo ʻole e pili ana i ka halihali ʻana, nā kelepona ʻana, ka hoʻonohonoho ʻana, a pēlā aku. Inā noʻonoʻo pono ʻoe i kahi a pehea ʻoe e hoʻolilo ai i ka $ 2,500 i hiki ai iā ʻoe ke kaomi i ka mea nui loa mai ia mea, eo ʻoe. Inā, ma kahi o, nānā ʻole ʻoe i ka $ 2,500 a kau i ka kālā nui - ke hele nei ʻoe!

Ehia na dala?

ʻO ka like no aʻu ka hoʻopukapuka a mākou e hana ai i kā mākou hana. Inā loaʻa iā ʻoe ke kumuwaiwai kālā, hopohopo e pili ana i ka nui āu e hiki ai ke mālama i ke kūʻai ʻana i kahi ʻāpana o ke keʻena he ʻāʻī paha. Laʻana: No laila loaʻa iā ʻoe kahi limahana e hana ana i $ 30 / hr nona ka hana i waiwai ʻia ma $ 70 / hr e ʻimi ana i ka pūnaewele e mālama $ 25. Inā lākou i hoʻolilo i hoʻokahi hola ma ke kūʻai pūnaewele ʻana no ke kumu kūʻai ʻoi loa o ka mīkini paʻi hou, ua nalowale ʻoe $ 15. Ma kahi o, ua kūʻai aku ʻoe i ka mīkini paʻi mua āu i ʻike ai a kūʻai aku i nā lawelawe a kēlā limahana no $ 70. E loaʻa iā ʻoe ma mua o $ 15.

No ke aha hou aku? Ma muli o ka ʻimi ʻana i ka Pūnaewele e hoʻāʻo nei e mālama i kekahi mau kālā ma ka mīkini paʻi ʻaʻole wau ka mea i hoʻolimalima ʻia ai kāu limahana e hana. E hana paha lākou i kā lākou papahana, a ʻoi aku ka maikaʻi inā lākou. E hoʻokō lākou i kā lākou mau pahuhopu, hiki i ka manawa, a hoʻonani ʻia i kā lākou hana.

Mai pili pili i ka mea liʻiliʻi

I koʻu male ʻana, ua hele au i kahi huakaʻi i Las Vegas a me Laughlin me kaʻu wahine. ʻAʻole wau he mea pāʻani kālā, akā ʻo kona mau mākua. ʻO kāna ʻōlelo aʻo wale a kāna Māmā iaʻu e pili pinepine i ka max. Ua noho au no kahi manawa iki e pāʻani ana i ka wikiō ʻeleʻele a me ka poker wikiō i hoʻokahi pō a ke hoʻolei nei i $ 1.25 i kēlā me kēia manawa. ʻAʻohe ona kani e like, akā aia wau i ka Navy i kēlā manawa no laila ʻaʻole nui kaʻu kālā. Manaʻo wau ʻo kā mākou 'waihona kālā pili kālā' $ 30 i kēlā me kēia lā.

Ma hope o kekahi manawa, i koʻu ʻike ʻana i ka lalo o kaʻu bākeke, ua hoʻomaka wau e kau i 4 mau hapaha i ka manawa .. a laila 3 ... a laila 2 ... a laila 1 ... a ua pā wau i kahi Royal Flush. Ua hauʻoli koʻu makuahōnōwai wahine iaʻu - a ʻike ʻo ia i ka uku o $ 62.50. Ua heleleʻi kona ʻāʻī. Inā wau i hoʻomau me kaʻu $ 1.25, inā ma kahi o $ 25,000 waiwai. Ma kahi o, he ʻeke kuata ʻē aʻe kaʻu.

Ua aʻo wau i kaʻu haʻawina.

E hohola i kāu pili

I kaʻu hana i kēia manawa, ua nānā au a nānā i nā mea hoʻopukapuka i ka ʻoihana a he mea wehe maka. ʻAʻole i hoʻonele kā mākou mea hoʻopukapuka i kā lākou waihona mālama kālā a me kā lākou kālā i kā lākou reti ʻana e pāʻani ma luna o mākou. Akā, ua hoʻopukapuka lākou i nā ʻoihana 10 a kaulike lākou i ko lākou nānā e like me ia. ʻAʻole lākou i hoʻopukapuka i ko lākou manawa a pau a me kā lākou kālā i loko o kahi ʻoihana hoʻokahi me ka lana o ka manaʻo, pule, a me ke koʻikoʻi e hana ia.

Hoʻolahalaha lākou i kā lākou kālā ma nā ʻoihana he ʻumi a ʻimi e kōkua i kēlā me kēia ʻoihana ma ke kōkua ʻana iā lākou i kahi e hiki ai. Hāʻawi wale kekahi o kā mākou mea hoʻopukapuka i ka manaʻo pane me he mea lā he mea lawelawe. Hāʻawi kekahi i ke kālā a hāʻawi kekahi i ka manaʻo loea. Hoʻomaopopo lākou i ka hiki ke hoʻohana ʻia ko lākou ikaika i loko o kēlā me kēia ʻoihana a hoʻokaʻawale lākou ia mea. Pīhoihoi au i kā lākou ʻōlelo ʻana iā mākou e puhi i $ 25k ma aneʻi a me $ 25k ma laila me he mea ʻole lā. No ka mea is ʻaʻohe mea iki.

Makemake lākou iā mākou e pili i ka max a noʻonoʻo pono i ka ʻoihana, ʻaʻole ma ka waihona mālama kālā.

I nā huaʻōlelo ʻē aʻe, ʻaʻole lākou e kūʻai no ka mea paʻi paʻi haʻahaʻa a ʻaʻole makemake lākou e noho mākou.

    A royal flush in Black Jack, that’s a hell of a hand!

    By the way Doug, I tried clicking the permalink to this post from the RSS feed and got a “We couldn’t find that! Either you’re lost or we are!” message. I’m not sure what’s up, but I thought you’d like to know.

      Oops! Forgot the ‘and video poker’. The irony is that I did hit on Keno the last night and paid for the trip. I missed another big jackpot. And at the airport I missed another jackpot. I’m a little thick sometimes!

      Re: The RSS – I had an issue when it first published. I thought it didn’t publish and I modified the post slug. I’m a real winner tonight! 😉

    Doug – I agree that time is money and that spending an hour looking for the best price is wasteful. However, I don’t think that means buy the first one you see at whatever price. If it takes me five minutes to call up BestBuy.com, CircuitCity.com, Amazon.com and NewEgg.com to see which has the best price, it’s worth the time for me.

Pehea kou manaʻo?
