Days of Poker Past

I got a ping on Facebook today from a dealer friend that still works at Bellagio telling me that Andy Beal was back – he played Todd Brunson heads-up, each buying in for $5,000,000. There’s a report up on PokerNews.com about the match.

This is how it played out

My last post was ‘The Writing on the Wall’ and the title was wrapped around the fact that I had a premonition of bad news.  I believe in those feelings, I’ve experienced more than my share during my life and those feelings have rarely turned out to be just a whimsy or me having a bad day.

The Writing on the Wall

That saying always conjures up feelings of impending doom.  Lately there’s a wrinkle somewhere in the back of my thoughts that predicts the writing on the wall. I don’t know what the wrinkle is, things simply don’t feel right. Continue reading

Happy New Year!

Out with the old, in with the new, as the saying goes.  But before we leave 2014 behind, let’s take the best of it, multiply it a few thousand times, and set a direct course for it in 2015.  Happy New Year world!

Merry Christmas World

Five weeks ago today

I went under the knife…as they say.  Still kicking along out here in the desert, body rest and repair going on, can’t wait to finish painting the exterior of my house but I will wait at least one more week for the 6 week mark after surgery.  And also try to dodge some frisky weather we may be having.

Bloggers gathering in Vegas

I so planned to make it into Vegas this weekend for the blogger gathering – and to play the tournament held at Aria today.  It simply wasn’t going to happen after the last 4 weeks of regrouping after the surgery.  If they had a hammock in a quiet, dark corner for grannies that need a rest, I would have gone…hee hee.  Continue reading

Not much news going on

It’s a Thursday.  Back in the day I would’ve celebrated (just like I did every day) with a few water glasses full of wine.  Funny how time changes things.  Now I can barely stand the thought of a glass of wine.  Upon occasion when my sis comes over with full wine glass in hand, I think I should be drinking one with her.  Sometimes I do, but not very often.  No desire.

Three weeks out

Let’s get the bad news out of the way.  I’m a little over three weeks out from having surgery and the ‘massive hematoma’ is still a massive irritant in my life.  It’s still draining, bright, red blood.  She-ite!  I had an appointment last week with my surgeon.  He’s convinced that my body will heal itself.  I am convincing myself of the same thing because I couldn’t stand to go in and have another surgery right now…at least not for a year or so.  FK!

Them that has the gold makes the rules

That’s an old saying in poker but it rings true to most events that happen in our daily lives.  Let’s talk the medical marijuana revolution that’s going on in Nevada as the rules are changing and grow/dispensaries are going to become legal for in state and out of state buyers that have a medical marijuana card.
