Let’s Talk Walmart
I’m often amazed at how many people Walmart employs and – let’s have a special cheer for them for providing jobs to so many – I appreciate the fact that they hire everyone, from the kid with three lip piercings and 12 eyebrow ring/spikes/plugs, to the old crusty fart that stares at you as you walk out with your purchases. It is a great way to keep a lot of us employed. I hope I never end up there, but one never knows the full extent of what will happen with life. And I would work before I sat back and waited for someone to feed me or care for me…since I can’t win at poker, Walmart is an option. That out of the way, let’s talk Walmart.

If you’re reading this, please get out your notebook and start figuring out where I went wrong as a child, or somewhere in between then and now. First, the fact that I continue to return to the green felt to punish myself with sick beats means something is seriously wrong with me. Do I think I am a better player than those I sit with? Mostly all of them; which brings us back to the fact that there is something seriously wrong with me. How can I be a better player than them when they know that 2-4 is going to beat a flopped set of Aces? Continue reading Dear Amy,
It’s cooling off in the desert
As a matter of fact, I’m freezing my tush off tonight. It’s 2:30ish a.m. and I’m considering the electric blanket and bed. Yummy! This little guy was supposed to come out today and stay with Grandmom for a few days. Continue reading It’s cooling off in the desert
The promises from the night before
it sounds like the escapades of an evening out with your lover, but in reality it’s what we do to ourselves as we close the chapter of the day’s book. We are normally overwhelmed by everything we failed to accomplish and everything that still needs to be done, so as we prepare to throw it all out the window and ignore it for another night, we promise ourselves we will accomplish it tomorrow. Continue reading The promises from the night before
PokerWorks H.O.R.S.E. and first out – NOT
i NOT ONLY was not first out, I had a great time just chatting away with all five of us. Yes, that’s all that showed but I think it’s one of the best times I’ve had playing, simply because we were all in the same game and chatting it up. Even Grupper managed to add to the chat for a brief moment. Thank you, Grupper! Continue reading PokerWorks H.O.R.S.E. and first out – NOT

It’s almost poker time
In 10 minutes I’ll see if I can wade through 10,000 or so people and move on to Milllion Dollar Men Final & Main Event Qualifier. No small task, but it’s only a mouse click here and there. Continue reading It’s almost poker time
The Day’s Done and So Am I
It is about 2:30 AM and I’m dragging. I really have no idea why. I did go out today and move a little gravel and tiles around but that’s no reason to feel as exhausted as I do right now. I also played some poker. I even seriously thought about changing my clothes at one point and heading to the Silver Nugget in downtown (kinda) Pahrump to see if I could find a poker game, but I didn’t get there. Thinking was as far as it went. Continue reading The Day’s Done and So Am I
