    Not everybody is totally money motivated.
    Leon was that way till he made it.
    Now he laughs at how he used to be when he worked for a living.

    Ah..I see. Fun, entertainment and enjoyment is the over riding gambling factor. Not money.

    Great. Enjoy.

    Different strokes for different folks.
    Some play the game for money / profit while others
    play for recreation.

    Those who play for entertainment can lose at the rate
    of a couple hundred dollars per hour and walk away smiling
    and talk about how much they enjoyed the game
    then piss and moan about spending thirty or forty dollars to see a show
    which REALLY is ENTERTAINMENT.

    Is Leon retired, or has he struck it rich playing craps?

    Is this the guy who owns a plane?

    Yes, Leon owns one of the planes they fly to a casino when they need money.

    Leon worked for a living the other guys and myself finally
    got him into his own business.

    We use to tell him all the time that
    "WORK SUCKS & THERE'S NO MONEY IN IT"
    He would get pissed off and we wouldn't see him for a week or two.

    He was told all his life to get an education
    so he could get a job with benefits.

    Leon doesn't own a plane , he doesn't even really like to fly.

    He didn't strike it rich playing craps but he does pretty well playing.

    One is near the main craps pit, the other is in the general area of the pit, that is closest to the bowling alley. The Aruze craps game, is a lot worse than "boring". It is a dead fix, and should not be allowed in any casino. :confused:It is my recommendation that nobody play it. :cool:

    More bullshit...

    September, 2016....
    A navy pilot who doesn't like to fly? LOL.

    I'll dig....but I am quite sure there are other posts talking about Leon's plane.

    Also...apparently Leon was an Air Force pilot in addition to a navy pilot.

    And..."Leon doesn't like to fly"....."doesn't own a plane."

    LOL...

    You can't make this shit up. Well, apparently, you can.

    James...ya wanna get the story straight?

    If someone wants to build himself up with “I can do this”....”I can do that”.....whatever. Bravado.

    You attempt to do that while you denigrate others at the same time?

    You better damn well be sure your own story is straight.;)

    Leon doesn't own a plane , I didn't say he never did.
    He doesn't like to fly.
    It's rather like a bus driver going for a drive on the week end.
    He especially doesn't like small aircraft.

    Really TD? Obviously you didn't learn anything from the "Harrah's New Me ico" thingy. He was just tricking us JUST to get a " rise" out of us.

    Deflection is the KEY!!!!

    Doesn't even really like to fly was the statement.
    I didn't say he wouldn't.

    This guy has been caught in so many lies that it's hilarious.

    I've got to give him credit......He ALWAYS returns with some lame excuse as to how we twisted the story ( His OWN WORDS) . lol

    Let's see what THIS latest " caught with your pants down" episode reveals.

    STAY TUNED FOLKS......I am CERTAIN that James has a VALID explanation/rebuttal.

    "Man" your Gas Masks.....this should be a real stinker. Lol

    Yeah that denigrating is not good but maybe it's fun.
