THE LAST HAND – Gambling action heats up

THE LAST HAND – Gambling action heats up

I like to watch Poker After Dark late at night on television. They like to chatter too much, but I like the play action. There are so many different styles of play, but big money always seems to talk the loudest. Those “all-in bets” are dynamite and gutty plays. It’s always been said, “Good cards […]

Tax-free coupons seem like a good idea

Tax-free coupons seem like a good idea

On my last trip to Black Hawk and Central City, I stopped by Saratoga and visited Chuck and Dan, two of the casino gaming executives. The folks at Saratoga are so friendly. I purchased some candy from Ruth in the little corner coffee nook and had a bowl of the famous potato leek soup that […]

Poker has become a big-time sport

I’ve been enjoying recent poker columns in The Gambler and have played a few times at a friend’s house.  Along with the poker, the hosts provide a great assortment of pizza and nibbles that make the evening very entertaining.

A catty column if ever there was one

A catty column if ever there was one

Driving to work, one sees so many people out walking their dogs. The walk serves two purposes—exercising the dog and the owner. What I don’t see is anyone walking their cat.

THE LAST HAND – A good cabin-fever joke about our lovely snow

It seems, historically, whenever the National Western Stock Show arrives, the bitter cold weather comes right along with the fancy livestock, horses, sheep and chickens. The recent snow has been minor compared to cold snaps that put the temperature into minus degrees across the state. Skiers are reporting awesome snow at all the Colorado ski […]

Bombeck remembered

The new year is a good time to remember Erma’s philosophy She wasn’t a politician, never held public office, but offered advice from her heart that seemed to heal our souls and tickle our funny bones. I heard Erma Bombeck speak many years ago. She addressed a newspaper audience at our annual press convention at […]
