Rode about 3 miles R/T to pick up a gallon of gas for my yard vacuum/leaf mulcher. Also returned some deposit cans and bottles at the supermarket on the way. Mulched 14 bags of leaves for the compost pile in the back yard, took about 2 hours. It was enough for a day. Only did about 1/5 of the yard, more work later this week.

Later I rode to Aldi's for some stuff and continued on to the local Casino, about 10 miles R/T. Usually I just watch Blackjack but today I felt like playing and put $60 down, played for an hour and left with $120. I was pleased.

Got home in time for dinner and watched a Netflix DVD 1940 movie The Return of Frank James with Henry Fonda and Gene Tierney. It was her first movie and she didn't show too much in acting chops in this oatburner but she was so astoundingly beautiful that it didn't make much difference. We then watched a DVD PBS special from the library about Albert Barnes and the Barnes Art Collection in Philadelphia. My wife and I visited the Collection last year in its new home in Center City Philadelphia. Many years ago I saw the collection in its old home in Lower Merion. The new museum does real justice to this fantastic collection of Impressionist and Modern Art.
