You can bet on just about anything you can imagine. And not just the final score; overs/unders, spreads, three quarter time score, something called a "run", which after being explained to me too many times (by the looks on other's faces) I still don't get.
On the plus side, you get free drinks if you are betting.
I wish I wasn't too damn cheap to bet. What a dilemma for a young Scottish lad.
Here I thought I was looking the hotel next door with fancy Juliette balconies.
Until I took the twenty minute walk and found out this is a parking garage.
Of course, the opulent Caesar's Palace. And Caesar himself was there.
No one can resist Vegas, baby.
And finally, it's gold, Jerry, gold!
You know you will be kicked out of a place soon when the pisser is nicer than any furniture you have in your entire apartment.
Okay, I finally broke down and laid some bets.
Whoo hoo! I'm a winner! And even got some of those free drink coupons! I love America!!
I just found out that the Morrissey Tavern, a staple of good college boys out for some bad times back in the 70's/80's, was located right beside mia casa - where the Shoppers Drug Mart now proudly stands. I had a vibe that it was close.
Kinda cool. But kinda sad.
I had my first pint of Keith's at The Mo. And as the saying sort of goes "Those who like it, like a lot of it'. I certainly fell, tripped, stumbled into that category.
So everytime I now come down the stairs of our condo, I come out to the backdoor of what was once The Mo. I can only imagine that the sight of roadies and band members out sneakin' a dube back then would have been much cooler than watching the Shopper's bag boy dumping the trash or having a smoke.
Oh well, say hello to progress.
Mia casa poking its head over The Mo/Drugmart. And those are our townhouses over the Drug Mart sign.
Convinced a young lady to take my picture by the Cosmic Ray station a while back [unfortunately, that's about the only thing I can convince a young lady into doing any more], but she got the last laugh.
I will take your wretched picture, but no one else will have to gaze upon your leering eyes.
Hi, I'm Jim Arnott. For whatever reason, I've decided to create a blog. Why would someone want to read my blog? If you have any ideas, please let me know.
My shtick will be to post photos and comments using only my cell phone. Why? It's not because I'm too cheap to buy a real camera. Don't believe those rumours. It's because, well.......this is the only camera I choose to have. Yeah, that's it.
And based on this photo, maybe these low resolution babies are the way to go. Yikes!
