And I didn't even lose my shirt. Of course, it helps not to bet in the first place.
Got a lot of reading done on this trip. I finished Bernard Cornwell's Vagabond, and I was able to get into Raymond Chandler's The Big Sleep.
I think Chandler is going to become a favorite of mine. He has a gift for prose, one that is fun to read as he takes you through the tawdry side of 1930s Los Angeles.
But that's another post for another day.
