Casino Outing

I'm just back from the Niagara Falls Casino. No, I haven't developed yet another vice. It was supposed to be an outing with a great group of women I worked with on a health care project last year. We all come from diverse backgrounds but got along famously. Some of us met at the Casino buffet restaurant before Christmas and were hoping to get all six of us together tonight. Unfortunately only two of the six made it. The other woman who showed up is a former politician and I worked as a political assistant for many, many years and so, although we are on different ends of the ideological spectrum, we had a great chat about our experiences in the political fray and both admit we miss being in the loop - our insider gossip is getting pretty old. We got to gorge on shrimp and fabulous desserts, though, and the view of the Falls is second to none.
