A Trip to the Casino and my Aunt's Pool

I'm not really a fan of gambling, but last year King of Prussia opened up a small casino with some restaurants. Sadly, it's $10 to be a member (most casinos are free) meaning they're trying to make it exclusive. I think it's their licensing agreement where it's supposed to be more entertainment than gambling. Mom, dad and nan (when she was still alive) thought it was alright, but sometimes it's more convenient to go there than driving 30 minutes to Chester (PA) or 2 hours to Atlantic City. Mom let me use her guest pass and dad bought a card to play. The casino was nice, although small. The machines weren't really hitting -- I managed to win $7 and mom and dad broke even too. We only stayed an hour, but I was glad I finally had the chance to see the place. We went at 9am and left at 10am. Next time I want to go at night to experience restaurants and entertainment. :D

At around 12:30pm, we went to my aunt and uncle's house to see their new chickens. I wanted to get pictures, but they won't go out in the sun and their coop was too dark. Next time, though! They're adorable -- two white chickens, which aren't named yet, and a brown chicken that's named Chaos. I'm not sure if they are male or female or a male and two females, but apparently they all lay eggs. My aunt and uncle also have a pool,but sadly my cousins don't use it much. It looked so inviting, especially on an 85 degree weather day. After food shopping I went swimming. :) I might make it a Thursday and Friday ritual after work and a Saturday. I'll ask my aunt, I don't think she'd mind. I just find swimming relaxing.

I was nervous as the black clouds rolled in, but it managed not to rain until I went to bed later.

I'm going to go to this on Thursday evening. I won't be home until late, I'll be exhausted for work at the library on Friday, but at least I don't have to get up until 6 (unlike when I work at the school Monday-Wednesday when I have to get up at 4:45am). :p


  1. The content was really very interesting. I am really thankful to you for providing this unique information. Please keep sharing more and more information Casino Tour

  2. I'm not into gambling either, although a small casino doesn't sound too bad. My Dad has said that the hotels in Reno are excellent, however (they're all casinos, but he didn't gamble; he was there for work).

    I hope you do get a picture of the chickens at a later date! I love chickens...I've fed them before; have you ever fed chickens? :)

    I haven't been swimming for over ten years...

    1. I like the entertainment in casinos, mainly when an old band I love performs there. Since I like older music, most of the concerts are held in casinos. I want to go back to Atlantic City... haven't been there in 8 years and the last time we saw a magic show.

      I think I have, a while ago at a farm near my house. I hope I can feed my aunt's chickens. :)
