Esther and Martha are shooting dice - they are winning too, judging by the looks on their faces. They got dressed up really fancy for this event - that used to be how it was; you dressed up every time you went out.
They must have money, that is why they are gambling. Hopefully it is not all of their social security check! Some people lose sense with those things.
Esther and Martha are good friends - they took this trip to the casino on a tour bus from Philadelphia down to New Jersey. Casinos can be very boring places though. You always hear about what they win, never what they lost.
Esther and Martha's husbands are long gone, their kids are grown up and their grandchildren are getting older - they have a lot of time to fill.
Esther and Martha are here for a few days, then their tour group will move on. This isn't their first casino and it won't be their last. They love having fun together and that is all that really matters anymore.
