Mrs. BC and I decided to go to the Pacific National Exhibition today. It's a large fair that runs for about three weeks in East Vancouver. It started out, years back, as an agricultural fair and still has an element of that. But now the big draws are rides, arcades, Sham Wow like gimmicks, and every imaginable food under the sun.

We arrive, ...$16 to park, enter the park, ... $32 for two to get in, ... $6 more to go see the Genghis Khan exhibit. Ugh, $54 gone already - I come up with a plan. Did I mention there's also a horse racing track with a casino downstairs? We make a bee line for it. I timidly insert a $20 into a VP machine and play it up to $30 then back down to $20. Janice tries a slot and has much better luck ... 1000 quarters!



Woo-hoo! That can really transform a day! It was all fun after that. Just got home at midnight after stomping around there all afternoon and evening.

Great mini-trip, Dave! The lovely Janice clearly has the magic-touch...

And nice rats, shooty - cute, and just a bit disturbing - perfect balance.

Thanks for the kind remarks Stan. Although hitting the casino was my brain child, it was BC Janice who (whom?) was in tune with the Muses of Good Fortune. We had a great time and plan to go back before the fair closes on Labor Day.
