True Story ... :-)

Every Monday at Fire Rock Casino in Gallup, NM they have $1.99 breakfast & (15) bingo games for members 50 & older ...

So - I try to time it to attend when I am passing thru ...

Among the Navajo people there is a few whites sprinkled in - the announcer is learning to be a stand up comic like his big brother.

He tells some good jokes in English & Dine' ...

Today his parents drove from quite a distance to be there, his Mom is a big bingo player & he enjoyed telling jokes about her ...

In between games - he repeatedly asked if anyone wanted to tell a joke - he said no one had ever taken him up on it in the years he had been calling numbers ..

After the 14th game I was inspired - I asked his Mom if it would be o.k. if I told a joke that included her - she was fine with it ..

I took the mike and said:

" Your Mother says you never call ....

The winning bingo numbers for her ... "

The crowd laughed & I sat down.

The next & final game ...

HIS MOTHER WON ... :-)


(He came up to me later & thanked me)
