A Favorite pastime for this couple is playing blackjack at the local casinos. Rick being the more conservative one was always worried with Kelly, the risk taker of the two. She had no problem creating excitement with a crowd by throwing down a large bet. Even if it was a losing bet, she still shrugged it off by saying she was still a winner because she made the best bet of her life, her husband!
