I like this stealth shat, Chris.
Chris: I crept up behind them, here on Bournemouth pier Ray
HA! I love your play on words, Chris. That reminds me of a penny-pincher machine. smile
Chris: I think that is what it might be Ginnie

Don't tell me that when you turn the wheel it tells you your future and what fortune you can get...
I think that is already holding on to his left arm, Chris.
Great picture of these two old geezers...
Chris: Yes indeed this could be a fortune-telling machine Astrid. "You will live long enough to walk to the end of the pier. Not sure whether you'll get back though.."

I wonder what the chap makes of it? The lady seems less interested and just wanted to get ready for her pole-dancing performance in the end of the pier show. I do believe that this is Bournemouth pier.
Chris: Yes it is that place. I think the pole dancing is not so much at the end of the pier but more in your head

He hoped it was a ‘What the butler saw’ Tiff.
Chris: Even with those glasses he wouldn't be able to see the goods displayed Chad..
Checking to see if it is "What the Butler saw"?
Chris: I wonder if those saucy machines still exist Tom?

Must be an old sailor and saw the steering. "Hard to starboard!" he shouted, but the pier remained steadfast on its course - of course.
Chris: Yes - of course, and the language used might be coarse
I bet that machine is older than the elderly couple.
Chris: Dating from grandfather's time I expect
He seems quite interested, Chris. Did he give it a try?
Chris: I don't think he was allowed to..
Insert coin

Turn wheel

Wait while nothing happens

Realise you have been conned

Insert another coin......
Chris: Repeat, ad nauseum..
I like this one a lot...
