Guess where I had breakfast this morning? At the casino! I won a $10 meal voucher on the radio, so had myself a very nice plate of bacon and eggs. I have never been in a casino before. It was all very ornate gold decoration, but not many people playing at that time of the morning. There were quite a number of senior citizens. I wonder if they play the pokies, or were just there for a cheap meal. I didn't try any of the machines, I'm sure it's far too easy to get addicted.

You are supposed to get dressed up to enter, so I had my smartest top on, but I observed a lot of people who looked quite casual. The idea is to deter people who can't afford to lose, but I don't think it works. Last year there was a case of a professional woman who gambled away millions of dollars embezzled from her employer, and no doubt she was very smartly dressed.

As I was leaving a priest came in. My imagination ran riot - it must be very good to go to a casino if you are a writer.

    Breakfast at a casino. That would never have occurred to me.

    Free breakfast and a good vantage point for people-watching! You are lucky. And I love your sense of adventure.

    Maybe YOU should be the writer, just a short story to start. The imagination runs wild...Breakfast at the Casino....

    I can attest to the senior citizens at the casino thing. About a month ago, I/we attended a concert at a casino venue about 4 hours north of here. 75% of the people in the casino (which was packed, granted it was Valentine's Day) looked to be 60+. I was truly shocked. I don't get the excitement of literally throwing your money away without any gurantee of getting anything in return.

    When the casino first opened in Windsor, Ontario, Canada, my mom and I went over to check it out. I blew thru about $20 in an hours time and told my mom, that's it, I am done, let's go. C'est La Vie
