Gambling.

smarty pants

donkeysWe had a bit of fun in the local this lunchtime.It was a big day in the horse racing year, the Welsh Grand National. Keith rolled up and joined in. Also in attendance were Nikki, Charlie(not the peke), Steve and moi. The idea was to pick a horse in each of the televised races and put £1.00 down. If no-one won, it was nearest the winner. Nikki cleaned up after the first roll-over.

Tomorrow we go for the roll-over (I won the penultimate race), no-one won the last.

Don't know much about horse racing, even though I live in the Horse Capital of the World. I just wanted to tell you that I really like the new banner! Well done, you! (Or, whoever you farmed it out to...) :)

I can't stand gambling of any sort - I bet you didn't win much, I'd stake my house on it!

To Everybody - Don't believe the gambling bit! I was stitched up, and ripped off! What do you think of "friends" who take advantage of an old man?
