Nothing To Crab About

We were driving back from the grocery store this afternoon, thinking about what to have for dinner when I said I wonder if the casino has crab on again. When we got home I Googled the casino and yes, they had crab. Dinner problem solved!

We put the fridge stuff away, changed and headed over. Being the weekend, the Players Club discount was not as good so instead of $9.99, it was $14.99. OK, I can live with that. I had already decided to head straight for the crab table and ignore the salad and veggies. I piled 3 crabs on my plate and made my way to our table before heading back for lemon wedges and melted butter. Norma followed me with a plate of salad. By the time she had eaten her salad and gone for a tiny slice of beef, I was headed back to the crab table where I reduced their haul by 3 more crabs. Yes, if you are counting, that is six crabs. I wasn't counting. In my defense, these were not huge crabs. The bodies held little meat and some of the legs were too thin to bother with but I still had my fill. As you can probably imagine.

About half way through this display of gluttony, Norma could take no more and left the table. She said she was going to walk around the casino and I could find her when I finished (if I didn't die on the spot from an overdose of melted butter). She assured me she was not going to gamble. Ya, right!

When I finally waddled out of the buffet I spotted her on her way back to get me. She smiled and said, "I lied. My favorite machine was not being used" and showed me two cash out slips, one for $150.00 and the other for $30. "Wow", I said. "How much did you put in?" "Two twenties"  After deducting $30 for dinner, that is a $100+ profit for the evening. I am starting to like this place. And to appreciate Norma's slot machine talents.

We stopped off at the RV park office as they had forgotten to update our park pass when we added three days earlier in the week and were told that because of some error they owed us $17 but could only give us credit, not cash. We gave them $12 to add another day and now we don't leave until Tuesday. That gives is about 12 or 13 days to get to the Island as we want to spend a day or two with Brooks and LindaLee before finishing the drive home to face Income Taxes. The fun is almost over!

  2. I think I read somewhere that the government had extended tax deadline to May 5 due to the shut down of their system for 5 days (thanks Heartbleed virus!) with no penalty or interest incurred.
