The latest theme is one that us oldies remember. Except I don’t ever recall seeing a Corvette in those days, even if it ran over me I wouldn’t have known what it was. I don’t think anyone in the areas I lived in, even knew what they were either. Click on the thumbnails. Continue reading Route 66, Bellagio’s Conservatory

I’ve been lost in between trying to sleep, sleeping a few hours, being tired as hell, wishing I could sleep, and nothing is coming together quite as it should. I’ve received sage advice, from more than one person, that it will take me awhile to fit back into a niche. Really? I like the night life. I like early a.m. I don’t like the glaring sun and all the confusion in traffic and speeding vehicles on their way to who knows where in the daytime world. Continue reading Monday, Monday
I think I’m kinda feeling great over the people that have left me comments, a few ‘e’ cards, and emails, all expressing how much they will miss me or are thinking of me. Honest, I’m not really going anywhere that I can’t be tracked back to right here. I will still be very active with PokerWorks and blogging away with tales of my life and poker and people, filling up the pages of Tango. Continue reading Just getting started!
“We’ve been together a long time, Linda.” from Doug Dalton, the director of Poker Operations at Bellagio, as we sat in his private office on June 13th. Continue reading The end…or the beginning?
It seems like Monday started a year or so ago. Every down feels like it’s eight weeks long. There are a few half hour sessions that seem to speed by – why is that? The ones that are fun and action packed move right along, the rest of them blend into a never ending skull session of facts and figures, body heat, room noise, people bumping into the back of my chair, and la-tee-da. Continue reading It’s already Friday?
“She got out!” Agent Brown in The Matrix. I really like that one line. It strikes me asaparallel to a lot of things in life, mainly mine, when something could have been drastic, “She got out”. Look for more news on that on Saturday’s post here. Continue reading A PotPourri – a few tangled thoughts
The room was a screamer. I drew Table 30 in the line-up. Thank you GOD! Almost every game was either $2-5NLH or $5-10NLH to Table 40. SWEET! One $4-8H game in the mix and towards the end of the line I ran into a heads-up $200-400 half pot limit Omaha game – yes, they could only bet half the pot. Then another player came in and they decided to go to $100-200 PLO, but most of my down was spent dealing heads-up. Thor Hansen stopped by to visit with one of the players and he visited with me a bit also. I’ve known Thor since the early days at the Mirage. Great guy! My last two games in that line-up were $30-60H and $100-200H. Then I was on a break and dealt two tournament downs in Fontana, there were three tables left of the $1,000 daily tournament. What a great shift. No noise, no headaches, no card zingers, just deal and I had such nice interaction with the players. Continue reading Hola! Eight hours?
I felt the need to add this after having received more comments from ReDRulvl. He ripped me in the first one, but has come around to a more rational level of thinking about the Overview. Nice! I think I like this kid. Hopefully we will meet and iron out all of the kinks. *ok, it’s a three liner*
I had an incredibly wonderful, relaxing three day weekend. As much as I accomplished, it would not appear that it was relaxing, but it was. I managed to tie up a bunch of things that had been digging a bedding ground for ‘non-accomplishment rot’ for a long time. Continue reading Back to the Noise
