A Delightful Evening With Donna, Bob, Cyndy and the Gang!
We all had tickets in Costa Mesa so it was decided to make it special. After seeing the plays/musicals we would meet at Seasons 52 and help celebrate Cyndy's birthday.... She is turning 21 today!
Happy Birthday Cyndy!

Donna performs the shell game
Did You Know? - The shell game (also known as Thimblerig, Three shells and a pea, the old army game) is portrayed as a gambling game, but in reality, when a wager for money is made, it is a confidence trick used to perpetrate fraud. In confidence trick slang, this swindle is referred to as a short-con because it is quick and easy to pull off.
Once done shuffling, the operator takes bets from his audience on the location of the pea. The audience is told that if a player bets and guesses correctly, the player will win back double his bet (that is, he will double his money); otherwise he loses his money. However, in the hands of a skilled operator, it is not possible for the game to be won, unless the operator wants the player to win or if the player is allowed to touch the shells, in which case the player has a chance. The player must turn over any two shells saying that the pea is under neither of these. Since the pea is usually palmed, it is not under any of the shells and the operator has no choice but to pay up.
"Now on my LAST birthday..... Fire Department..."
