The extent of my Saturday fun was going to the Silver Reef casino out on the Lummi Nation. I am probably not their target patron, as I drank only a diet coke and spent nothing gambling. I don't even think many of the machines even take money anymore, but cards that probably are able to track every penny that you spend.

And although there were numerous forms of entertainment, my greatest experience was watching the two quite inebriated Lynden women sitting next to me get kicked out of the casino for their behavior. Geeze, what a way for Lynden residents to ba acting on Easter Saturday. And of course I didn't say anything to them to get them riled up. Not me.

But the casino was packed, and I am always amazed at the amount of money spent at any casino I go into. I've read that more money is spent on gambling than all other forms of entertainment. I have since found (on trusty Wikipedia) that "gambling makes thrice that of all other entertainment forms combined." Crazy world.
