Moo.

HELLO FROM REHAB!!!!   Not sure if anything's been shared but Sunday dinner at my parents' a couple weeks ago was in fact an elaborate ruse to stage an intervention.  Actually it wasn't very

Everybody take a minute tonight (or today) to raise a glass to HeckDad.  My sister just called to tell me that he passed away at home.  Don't have details other than he fell, but he was 94 with a bad

Struggling to rally here, for a Friday night in Vegas. Yesterday was a blast, chatted with a casino owner for about ten minutes, gambled and drank nonstop. Now I can't walk two blocks without existential pain. I'm a fraud.

Pretty sure that's what drugs are for

Update: I dragged ### downstairs and lost some more, then went to spread some of that largesse elsewhere on Fremont. Unfortunately for me, the Pride Parade prevented that. I backtracked a block for dinner, still no dice, so to speak. 

Now limping, I retreat to El Cortez. My luck finally turns around, hitting quad deuces for $500 and restoring some semblance of order to the universe. Faceplant imminent

Do the waitresses still use the "Can the El Cortez buy you a drink"' line?  I was hoping they would offer a tetanus shot my first trip there many years ago but I hear they've cleaned it up a lot since then.

I'll also add that, while you seem to have dealt with more tragedy than most, I think a big part of that is from the fact that your social/family network is so big. You seem like a good guy Bob and a very large number of people seem to care about you and count on you. And you obviously care a great deal for a whole lot of people as well. That's a tremendous testament to who you are. It's probably also a reason why you have to deal with tragedy more often than a lot of us.

Thanks man. That means a lot to me.

Yep, told me to email him because his staff is compiling a list for customers who want to stay at the new resort the first night it's open. Again, I'm a dork.

Sometimes very specific indeed. There's a Deuces Wild variant that exists on two machines at El Cortez only. Pays 100.92% for perfect play.

Haven't heard that one. My standards are modest, but I think it's clean and safe. Staying in the Cabana Suites (lol) across the street .

It get worse. His roommate decided to try his stash out and ODed and died the next day. 

I don't know if it's true or not, but I have heard that dealers will intentionally put out a new batch and spike some to be super potent to OD someone...and that other people will immediately go to buy that stuff because of how strong it seems to be. Addiction is an awful awful thing.

I don't think that's true. Problem is that they stretching supply with fentanyl which is really powerful stuff. Put too much in and there's a bunch of dead people.

geezus bob, hang in there.  and don't drink too much.  

Stopping today. Got #### faced every night last week and all day Friday.  Was at the casino all day yesterday with Jimbo, one of his brothers and some other buddies.  Had a day like no other playing video poker.  Everyone put $20 in one machine and played it for 10 hours.  Ended up splitting about 3 grand and there was still $500 in the machine when I left. 

That said, badly need sobriety right now.

I didn’t expect Wyoming to win today, but I expected more.  Gonna go get some dinner and head to the local watering hole for some libations.  Back to Denver tomorrow.  It’s really warm here fwiw.  Weird.

Sorry for your losses Bob.   That truly sucks.

Kev, I hope you win a ton of money and meet a bartender with bad judgment, loose morals and big bazooms.   

I thought I settled a big case Friday but the confirmation I was expecting never came.  I'm not sure what that means, but it isn't good.

I'm gonna go sweat the Dodgers game 7.

I bet you that all of his music is transferred from his chrome book to his iPod in two days if he takes my advice. 

Furly doesn't even know the secret handshakes, which he's going to need for that amount of data.
