Casino Experience

I won a little trip to Casino Rama somewhere north of Barrie Ontario. This little trip is with an organized group (The Meet Market Adventures group). Some members I know from other events, some members I am getting to know. It's all about getting out and about and meeting people in Toronto. We had to go to a casino way outside Toronto to do it... But what the hey.
The Casino was as expected, tons of ways to lose your money and a buffet lunch... It was fine. Like paying a voluntary entertainment tax and chatting with new friends while you do it.
The highlight was it was snowing and dark as we left the casino and boarded the bus back home to Toronto. Very pretty! Very cozy sitting in the darkened bus watching the snowy fields passing by. You know that you lost the money you were planning to lose and not more (if you plan it right). You get to hear all the gossip and news about the singles group that you go on these adventures with. I even heard the dish on the guy I had been dating... aaaaah. Very interesting. It's funny that Toronto can be a small town in that you run into the same people or people that know those people...
There was no snow when I got back to Toronto. But the magic of the snow in the country side has put me in the mood to start my Christmas shopping. The Avon man came by at just the right time... I hope you like Avon if you are expecting a gift from me.

I cannot get over all the different things you are trying. I'm so impressed. You go girl.

By the way yesterday after I posted my little rant I thought, "Oh no, I hope I don't offend Barbara." This was followed closely by, "Oh no! I'm turning into my mother!" She's absolutely the best but she worries about everything.

Travelling in a bus during nighttime...reminds me of the numerous trips and tours we took during our school and university days. I love night time travel in a bus or car. I find something very romantic about it somehow..

When in Rome Toccata... meet the romans.
I don't mind if you rant.

It gets dark so early these days Jas it'a hard to avoid traveling in the dark.

I've driven past that casino numerous times! Although I've never had the urge to enter, not being keen on that sort of activity. Sounds like you had fun though.

They have Avon men now?
