From the Vault ... Literally

My days at the amusement park were rather, well, amusing. We were a creative bunch that made our own fun, nothing really illegal. Since we were the only ones allowed in the vault, with no scary supervisors watching over our shoulder, this is some of the fun that we had! (we didn't get pictures of everything, and just for the record {since my mom is probably reading this} there was nothing illegal or immoral going on, just some good old fun)

So, what would MacGyver do with a rainbow umbrella, a large empty money can, brown duct tape and a really huge t-shirt?

Since I'm no MacGyver, this is what I came up with:

Then there was that night that the cash was just too tempting and we had to have a game of poker ... (we didn't keep the money people) ... but can I tell you how fun it is to play poker of thousands of dollars in your hands? It was a lot more fun than the poker chips we used when I was a kid!

What can I say, we kind of got into it!

We had a lot of fun after hours, all of it pretty clean and innocent, but I still don't think I will ever let my kids work there!!! The chances of them getting such a great group of people to work with are not so good, sorry kids, but what can I say, Mom was real lucky!

For a good time today, visit

I love the MOM disclaimer. I am so glad that my mom doesn't read me sometimes!

Cool stroll through memory lane. Poker with other people's money *snort* Funny! said...

I'm liking that shirt in the last pic!

That looks like GREAT fun! Sadly, times have changed. What we could do as youngsters doesn't go the same for our kids. Darnit.

That looks like a blast!

I am so glad you took advantage of such opportunities. What other kids have the chance to play poker with a handful, okay armful, of cold hard cash?? Nice work!
