Subject: I want a Christmas present from someone in England!

Written By: ChuckyG on 12/08/06 at 8:34 pm

and it's totally cheap, though I have no idea how hard this would be to accomplish.

I want a postcard from a Grosvenor Casino, preferably with a picture of either the casino or the hotel.  I've been collecting chips from the casino on ebay, and the little display case I bought to display them in, has a spot for a post card.  I'm about to bid on the final chip to fill out the case, so all I need is a silly postcard.

I'm pretty sure the casino in Reading and the one in Margate (where I am next weekend) are Stanley casinos..................

I will check out the one in Margate though just incase.

cool!

I think it's kind of fun to collect stuff with my last name on it.  Got a big metal sign from Grosvenor Square in my kitchen.  It's not a common name over here, and from what I've seen of the people who have the name in England, they're certainly not common >grin<.

I remember that your surname is Grosvenor, and as soon as I read your asking, I just know what you are after, for I used to have a workmate with the family name of Bacon and his family collected ceramic pigs of all forms.

I know cops who do that over here, but their last name isn't Bacon.  Can't figure out why they do it.

Thanks for the pictures!

It's not nearly as impressive as anything in Vegas.

True, I will take a wander that way at night, then the doors will be open and see the lights on how it is lit.
