Go Figure

The guy who cleans up our yard came by today. The Crotchety Old Lady pointed out that he's always so nice and pleasant. I told her that I would be nice to someone who was paying me $100 cash for an hour's work, too.

Life is interesting with her.

I'll be heading down to Atlantic City next week, so I'm looking forward to that. I want her to buy a new camera, so we can take some pictures, and blog from AC. We'll be at the Taj Mahal which has become our favorite casino. We used to go to the Showboat, which is right next door, but they have gotten a bit annoying.

I had a ticket for a free giveaway of some crap. I asked her to go get it. But noooooo, they had to have me there. Because I guess there were a lot of people stealing driver's licenses and going to AC to pick up some cheesy gift. Yeah, that's the current big money scam. Funny part is everything at the Showboat involves going through some sort of maze. It's ok for walking, but when one is riding, well, that becomes a whole 'nother game. I usually wind up crashing into walls, or knocking over displays. Handicapped accessible, my ass. Trump's Taj is much more friendly, although--travel tip for the disabled here--Showboat has better bathrooms.

I'm coming for your cash, Donald.


He appears upset and concerned.

So what are you going to play? Poker? Black Jack? Table games like Caribbean Stud or Let it Ride? Is the Crotchety Old Man a slot machine fiend? Do tell.

I miss AC a lot. My buddies and I would go to the Borgata twice a year. I'm hoping to get back in August for my b-day (one of our yearly outings). I'm a poker and Caribbean Stud guy myself. Good luck! Tell Donald he owes me $5.

The Old Man likes video roulette, and the Old Lady had developed a taste for 3 card poker. Though I found some penny machines with a Harley Softail as the grand prize. Don't know what I'd do with it if I won, though.

I'll let The Donald know about the 5 bucks. I'm sure he'll want to make it right. He's that kind of stand up guy.


I would love to go to Atlantic City. Stuck here with the kids. I hope that you have fun! I like your blog. I find you interesting and very entertaining.

I haven't been to AC in a long time. Never stayed at a casino (OK, maybe once), we opted to stay at a small beach community nearby instead.

If you hit the Black Jack table, I'll send some luck along with you. Oh, wait....I rarely won. OK, I won't send you any.

Enjoy your trip.....sounds like fun!

Thank you all for the kind words and good wishes.

The casinos give us free rooms every few months, that's when we go. Right now, they are hurtin g as revenues have dropped considerably. That's why low rollers like us get free stuff.

Youheard of Diamond Jim?

In AC, I'm Diamondique Joe. : )

I love the Borgata too. I'm a big blackjack player, I have become very addicted to it which is why I haven't been there in a while. But anyways Hope you guys win millions down there and hope you give all of your blogger friends a cut lol
