Took the little man to the doctor for his yearly checkup. He turned 4 at the end of May and I hadn't gotten him in yet. I have a feeling that all those tall genes that skipped me in my family have found their way to him. He came in at 44 1/2 inches tall and 52 lbs. That's over 95% for his age on both stats. Average height is about 41 inches and weight is 37 lbs. That makes him sound fat, but he really isn't. He's got a little belly on him but it's not fat. At least it doesn't seem that way to me. More like he's just holding on to his baby fat a little longer than most.
The cats in the family are seeming to get along a little better than they were. At least Cedar is tolerating Esme better. LOL
Proposition A is coming up on the ballot here in Missouri this November. Right now it looks like it is going to pass and I have to admit I'm not completely sure that it should. I love the fact that it would get rid of Missouri's loss limit. (A player can only buy in for $500 every two hours.) I hate that it will limit the number of casino licenses the state can hand out. In fact, it won't allow any new casinos in Missouri at all. :( Which means that my hope of them opening one closer to me just goes out the window. It also means there will be no competition for my current casino. Competition is good for the employees. It can create better job environment and better benefits and pay. So, I'm still undecided on this issue. I will probably vote yes, though. And hope that it will help to turn my ugly red-headed stepchild of a casino into a real casino.
