My Anniversary Present

Recommended Posts

Windy City Walleye Hunter

Hey Guys,

Thought everybody would like to see my one year anniversary present. It was 365 days ago today that my beloved Pale Hose completed their utter domination on the rest of the Major Leagues, completing the 2005 season. I am sure that the rest of you will want to respond and send me some "warm wishes" on my anniversary. Let `em rip, boys! Windy

Windy,

My pleasure with the warm wishes about the anniversary. It is much better than congratulating you on another victory.

By the way, you don't really plan on wearing that mood ring gone bad thing do you? I just spent 4 days in Vegas and didn't see anything that gaudy there. grin.gif

OK

Time to "fess up". It's not really mine. It was the Big Hurt's. He left it here when he left in a huff after the parade. Sorry the avatar got a little distorted, I'm not too hip on editing. Pier had to "baby step" me through the process along with Buzz, just to get the darn thing up there. So, how did you do in Vegas? I love Vegas, where did you stay, what did you play, give us all the juicy details.

I was at the Riviera. Not my favorite place but that was where the conference was. We played at mostly the Frontier, MGM and Hooters. We got our rear ends handed to us most places playing blackjack and 3 card poker but had a little luck at the hold 'em tables. I had won a bundle last time down there so I knew the city was looking for some payback on this trip. I think we may try the Wynn next time down. Took a little tour there and looks like a awfully nice place.

Fishy,

I have not heard a lot of good things about Wynn. They started out like a house on fire, getting $500-800 a night but I heard that they dropped that pretty quick and good deals were to be had there. Have not heard good things about the casino either. Not sure, just what I heard. If you are looking to drop some coin on a hotel room I have and would recommend The Bellagio or The Venetian. My wife wants to stay at the Mirage on our next trip so we shall see. Love those Hold Em tables...my favorite game, hands down. Windy

I just so happen to of moved to Vegas recently. The Wynn is actually one of the better places here. Caesars Palace is also VERY nice but VERY expensive. The Belagio is very over-rated. ITs a nice place but too expensive for what they offer. The Venitian is also a very nice place that is also very expensive. Some of the hottest hold'em tables are at Caesars and belive it or not the Flamingo. Lots of players and almost always a great time. But staying at any of these places will always run u an arm and a leg. If you have the cash I would personally recommend Caesars. Just for their hospitality and the amount of stuff that u can actually do there without leaving the place(4 nightclubs, The Forum Shops, Many resturants, and live shows just about every single night) They have Elton John right now there plus Celine Dion plays there. Prince has started a show at the Rio that runs every Tues, Wed, and every other Thursday. I dont like him personally but i know alot of people do. Plus Penn & Teller is a great show that i recommend going to see if your here(which is also at the Rio).

Hey Born,

I saw Elton when I was there last Feb. Stayed at the Bellagio and I would agree with the rating, or over rating. Luckily I was not footing the bill, my company put us up there for 5 days and gave us a $1000 gambling money to boot. We saw Elton, Howie Mandel at the MGM Grand and The Rat Pack show at the Greek Isles. Rat Pack show was good, Howie was very funny and Elton was terrific. What really amazed me was the acoustics at the theater at Ceasars for Elton and Celine Dion. My last trip was in August for my wife's birthday. I took her to see Barry Manilow at the Hilton and we stayed at the Aladdin, now Planet Hollywood and it was almost as nice as Bellagio at a quarter the price per night. I have relatives that live in Vegas and some that live just outside of Laughlin. I have never heard great things about Wynn and I never got a chance to head over there myself to check it out. I heard that they really don't have a central theme for the place and nothing that really jumps out at you. I will try to make it a point to stop in there next trip. Maybe I will run into you at the Texas Hold Em tables. I will be the huge guy with a beard and pocket rockets in my hand and a smile on my face. Windy

      Spring turkey hunters hoping to bag a tom during the first two weeks of the season have until Friday, Jan. 26, to apply for a lottery permit. The season runs from April 18 to May 31 and is divided into six hunt periods, A through F (see table below). Hunt A and B licenses for firearms hunters age 18 and older are limited in availability and assigned via lottery drawing. Turkey lottery applications cost $5 and can be purchased online at mndnr.gov/licenses, by phone at 888-665-4236, or in person from a license agent. Successful applicants will receive a postcard in the mail by mid-February and can purchase their hunting license starting March 1. Firearms licenses for hunts C, D, E and F are not lottery-limited and will be available for purchase over-the-counter beginning March 1. All licensed turkey hunters can participate in Hunt F if they have an unused tag from one of the earlier hunt periods. Archery and youth hunters (under 18) are exempt from the lottery and may purchase a spring turkey license valid during all hunt periods, including hunts A and B. Surplus lottery licenses from hunts A and B, if available, will be sold over-the-counter starting in mid-March. Visit mndnr.gov/hunting/turkey for more information about turkey hunting in Minnesota. 2018 Spring Turkey Hunt Periods
      Hunt A: April 18 – 24
      Hunt B: April 25 – May 1
      Hunt C: May 2 – 8
      Hunt D: May 9 – 15
      Hunt E: May 16-22
      Hunt F: May 23-31 Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Youth and adults can learn to hunt turkeys this April with experienced volunteers who will cover safe hunting techniques, how to call-in turkeys, hunting tactics and field dressing a bird. “We teach the skills and techniques that allow new turkey hunters to become lifelong hunters,” said Mike Kurre, learn-to-hunt program coordinator with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. “This has been a successful program and as a bonus, we love hearing how former participants go full circle to teach others how to hunt.” Participants can apply through Monday, Feb. 12. The hunts are Saturday, April 21, and Sunday, April 22, and provide opportunities to access locations that may otherwise be closed to hunting. “We get volunteers from the National Wild Turkey Federation and this is the 16th year we’ve cooperated for these hunts,” Kurre said. “Over the years we’ve introduced more than 5,000 people to these hunting experiences. We also work with the Minnesota National Guard to get military adults and their families into turkey hunting.” Details about how to apply and costs to participate are available at mndnr.gov/turkeyhunt. A pre-hunt orientation is required and all participants will need to have a valid firearms safety certificate or its equivalent. Youth must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Overall participation in the hunts is restricted by the number of volunteers and private lands that are available. Anyone interested in providing turkey hunting land for the mentored youth hunts should contact the Keith Carlson, Save the Habitat Save the Hunt coordinator for the National Wild Turkey Federation in Minnesota at kcanoka@comcast.net.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Gov. Mark Dayton has proclaimed Jan. 20-28 as Snowmobile Safety Awareness Week in Minnesota. This an opportunity for the Department of Natural Resources, volunteer safety instructors, the Minnesota United Snowmobilers Association (MNUSA) and its 250 member snowmobile clubs to join together to recognize the importance of safe, responsible snowmobiling. “It’s a fun and exciting activity, but snowmobilers should always remember to make safety a top priority,” said Conservation Officer Bruce Lawrence, DNR recreational vehicle coordinator. “They should also always use common sense and keep a clear head when riding.” Here are some other key safety points: Snowmobiling and alcohol don’t mix – don’t drink and ride. Smart riders are safe riders – take a snowmobile safety training course. Always wear a helmet and adequate clothing. When night riding slow down – expect the unexpected. Know before the ride  – always check local trail and ice conditions. Cross with care. Know risks and be prepared – make every trip a round trip. One is the loneliest number – never ride alone. Ride safe, stay on the trail – respect private property. To legally ride a snowmobile in Minnesota, residents born after Dec. 31, 1976 need a valid snowmobile safety certificate. Options for both classroom and online classes can be found at http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/safety/vehicle/snowmobile/index.html People can find Minnesota snowmobiling events and activities on the MNUSA webpage: https://mnsnowmobiler.org/get-involved/mnusa/events.

      Lol! Smurfy  Its not as easy to identify areas like the old days the ice towns in Mertens bay and in front of Steils old house on cedar island aren't there like years of past but she's still the same chain that you grew up on. And IMO better than when we wee younger.
