Okay…wasn’t sure what “pokies” where…thank goodness for urban dictionaries. 🙂 Now I understand the reference…we have a lot of people here who are addicted to the slot machines in casinos…equally sad.

Ha! I didn’t even think about the terminology – yes, of course it’s the slot machines in the USA and poker machines in Australia, ala pokies – thanks Charles 😀

Yup. But, of course, they won’t. Too lucrative.
