I've worked a total of 21 hours in two days at the PNE, and I haven't had so much fun in a long time. If I'd only known how enjoyable working at the Fair would have been, I would have done it a long time ago, instead of waiting 21 years between stints. Yes, it was one find day in August, 1989 when I started my career at GCC at the PNE. That day I worked 8 hours on Blackjack and 4 hours on the wheel.

But fast forward to 2010. The first day I was dealing roulette (rather slowly at first but it all came back pretty quickly). It was a blast from the past to see old friends such as Lubna and Garry back with GCC (even if for a short time). Today started on roulette again, and then, as if I knew it would happen, I went to a game that I last dealt probably 15 years ago.... Red Dog. Who would have believed it? And it was fun, although four hours of it wasn't what I'd expected.

I have my one day off now and then it's back to the grind. And I couldn't have asked for anything better.

I'm definitely enjoying my time at the PNE as well! It's the people we work with that can make the long hours tolerable.
