Early, cool, clear, with promise of hot, dusty and busy later.
Still waiting for the Repub VP to be named. Caught Billarys speech. She left Obama to gather her supporters, if he can. Politics, such a lovely blood sport.
Noticed that Pokerworks, http://table-tango.pokerworks.com/, has started a bi-weekly H.O.R.S.E. tournament. Sundays, on Poker Stars, $5.50, with results posted here: http://pokerworks.com/poker-articles/pokerworks-1st-horse-tournament-results.html
The tournament is usually advertised on Linda’s site (Table-Tango), link left “Linda.” The surprising thing about it? It is a LIMIT tourney. Starting chips are the standard PS T$1500. I did drift by and noticed several Pokerworks forum commenter’s were present; as well as a couple of the Pokerworks writers.
I haven’t played Limit anything for quite some time and the quality of the attending players seemed good – barring one that caught the deck in his teeth, shame-ing the field. That’s a tongue in cheek statement, people.
I also observed Kat, http://pokerkat.blogspot.com/, has returned from her ’round the world motorcycle tour and was trying to abuse her Friday night Re-buy faithful.
While doing the mid-month shopping this past Monday I was forced to ask myself why: the least well attired, the least attractive, driving the least well maintained vehicle, is the least patient.
A man, seventy-ish, asked the check out clerk, forty-ish, when is a car not a car.
Man: When it turns into a drive way.
A giggle was heard from: The bagger-boy, sixteen-ish and the soccer mom, thirty-one-ish.
I didn’t laugh.
But I did remember the joke.
From the reaches,
