Send the SandWoman

The trip into Vegas was…that’s about it.  The day was just plain hot, the Dr. visit was enlightening but not any fun — nothing serious, just not fun. Riot went home to momparental for a week and the house is unusually quiet.

Sin City trip for tomorrow

Tomorrow is one of those days that leaves me wishing it was over already.  Although years ago I decided not to wish my life away, there are some days that one should be able to just skip through in a few minutes at light speed and simply retain the best moments of it for later reflection.

The rewind

Since I have missed so many opportunities to post on Tango (weeks at a time go by without my insanity gracing these pages) there are a few back issues that need mentioning. Continue reading

Murphy’s Law Strikes – Again and again and again UPDATED

I started out yester-eve to put up a post with pictures.  Not to worry, the almighty god of computers did an update — a critical update — and now I can’t access anything on my Sony memory sticks that worked just fine until the update.  Frustrated?  Hell yes! Continue reading

Off and running to nowhere

I have made a mini-resolution, one that I hope I can commit to and keep going.  I’m going to try (I know, try never did anything) and post every day for 30 days.  If I fail, it won’t be any different than it is now.  If I succeed, I may make it a habit and simply stay with it.  Since my blog is personal and not always poker oriented, it is not recommended for those of you who are strictly cruising for poker content.  ’nuff said.

Crawling along

The end of a journey – UPDATE

Chad Brown.

Chad is on the last leg of his journey through this life.  I didn’t know him well.  I dealt to him periodically over the years and he was always a gentleman and there to play poker without all the drama and tension that some players create.  Continue reading

Move to the Trash

I opened this page and the first thing that hit my thought was the ‘Move to Trash’ link, right beside the ‘Publish’ button.  I guess that’s an option, pretend you posted but just move it to the trash instead.

Memphis Mojo at the Seniors & More

I admit to being glued to the WSOP Senior’s Event live streaming until Memphis Mojo busted in third place.  And I was rooting for him to take it down.  He had to survive 4,425 players to take it home and he survived 4,422 of them.  Hells Bells!  What a feat! I’m sure he will have some stories to tell on his blog so check it out. Continue reading

Gold bracelet time – Not

Not for me.  I’m sitting out in the sticks, at home, tending to my little doggie-o Scout, Mr. Riot, and my son Dan — along with a few thousand other miscellaneous things. Every year about this time I start wondering if I will ever make the journey in to the world’s largest poker festival and put my full attention into playing for gold. Continue reading
