The trouble with poker

Everything changes from day to day.  Not the poker hands of course.  Over the course of poker history it would be impossible to calculate how many times a particular hand got beat by a particular hand.  But with the ever changing field of players, new tournaments, new poker games, new locations, new contests, etc., it tends to make me wonder what’s next.

A clean miss

Opting for a post every day for a month has failed.  I missed yesterday and one other one a week ago.  That doesn’t mean I’m giving up.  I could just sneakily go back and change posting dates and then I would be the only that’s the wiser, but why? Continue reading

The more it changes…

The more it stays the same…or so we’re told through the eons of mankind moving through the cycle of life. That thought kicked in as the current run of poker greats starts its move through the cycle. Continue reading

Free Movie at Redbox

Isn’t it funny how something ‘free’ usually ends up being NOT? I opened a Redbox account through the Internet and did nothing. After receiving numerous email prompts and all the ads that make one crazy, I got an offer for a free movie for the night and decided to take it.

All things considered

I survived yesterday. At different points I was wondering if I would. The literal sugar coma and exhaustion thingy. Hate it! Managed to head out at 5:30 AMish for my desert hike with Scout. Summer is on the downswing, even though it’s exceptionally warm tonight and it’s 10PM – she said with absolute knowledge. A few weeks ago the sky was beginning to lighten at 4:30, now it’s still dark until after 5.

The impossible days

Those would be the times that you go on a don’t-feel-good runner for a few days and no matter how much you sleep or try to find a clear thought to steer through the day, it just isn’t going to happen. That’s where I am right now. I can’t wake up. Nothing in the way of food or drink sounds inviting. UGH! Continue reading

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
