My Anniversary Present

13 posts in this topic

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

      Seen some fox tracks where I was looking for birds yesterday so I might have to head out there after dark.

      Went out yesterday after the wake and visitation with Finn. He flushed two hens and I saw him chasing a rooster but I am not fast enough to keep up. It flushed about a hundred yards out from me. We seen one grouse but it flushed 60 yards in front of Finn and he was only 10 yards infront of me. Then Finn started going crazy so he headed into the cat tails and wow 50 or so mallards flew at me and then 7 big swans. Finn did not look happy that I just watched them. It was a fun little trip.    Anyone else Lise out there chasing birds yet?

      Quick question, we have never come up in the winter, but it's my understanding the ice is usually questionable around Oak Narrows and Timbuktu. Does anyone know what the ice is usually like in Birch Narrows (West Hinsdale) and Smarts Bay (SW area Hinsdale) around the Retreat Lodge Area which is where our island property is.   Thanks for any insight

      As of yesterday most lakes are froze over please watch for areas that geese and swans have kept open. I checked a lake and found about an inch yesterday and I am sure it made some more last night.
