Homemade Bingo Costume
A casino that we often go to was holding a costume contest and the grand prize was a thousand dollars. I was pregnant at the time so we wanted to come up with something original, not the same ol “bun in the oven” thing.
So my husband is very crafty and he came up with the Homemade Bingo Costume. It went well with the theme of the casino. He made the bingo card out of Styrofoam, insulation board, and painted all the lettering on. He made the bingo dobber out of a cardboard tube and painted the pictures on it, took him FOREVER!
He strapped the tube to my back using bungee cord and painted my belly to be the tip of the dobber.
We won first place! And had so much fun!
I got many compliments on our creativity and unique idea.
Cant wait to do the contest again this year!

the hearse was nowhere in sight. There were only the diggers and crew
remaining and they were eating lunch.
I felt bad and apologized to the men for being late. I went to the side of
the grave and looked down and the vault lid was already in place. I didn’t
know what else to do, so I started to play.
The workers put down their lunches and began to gather around. I played out
my heart and soul for this man with no family and friends. I played like I’ve
Never played before for this homeless man.
And as I played ‘Amazing Grace,’ the workers began to weep.
They wept. I wept.
We all wept together. When I finished I packed up my bagpipes and started for
my car. Though my head hung low, my heart was full.
As I opened the door to my car, I heard one of the workers say, ‘I never
seen nothin’ like that before and I’ve been putting in septic tanks for
**Apparently I’m still lost. **
