Did You Know...?

Did you know that you are NOT allowed to take pictures anywhere inside a Casino?
I totally get it that around the slots or gambling tables, a big fat no-no...
But PEOPLE! This was a total Kodak moment! An absolutely GOR-GEE-OUS carving of a Red Hawk at their Casino in Placerville, CA at the landing of the lower level (aka NON smoking).

In fact it was so GOR-GEE-OUS that after I took this shot (and 4 others) I thought it would be cool if I got a shot off coming down the escalator to capture the window AND the carving.

At this point I felt a tap-tap-tap on my shoulder and turned to an armed woman saying, "madame ju cannot take de peecshures in de caseeeno"!
OH! Yikes....! Exited back UP the escalator to my smoking area to lower my heart rate.
(and hide my camera)

Did you also know that you no longer gamble with coins?
When the heck did THAT happen?
Imagine my appearance likened to a space alien when I got all comfy with a drink and an ashtray at a slot machine, pulled out my baggie of coins and...."wait! where the hell do I stick the coins"???
*Snort* all three hundred people around me had a good laugh at my expense...and I am pretty sure I overheard some old fart say, " she from outer space or what?"

lol - I know what you mean about the 'no coins' thing. That is strange to me too. Everything is just a little slip of paper. Somehow, that takes some of the fun out of it - you know, not having to haul around a big bucket of money and have completely filthy hands from handing all the coins.
