Turning My Mind to Vegas

It is back to the grind of trying to grab all that life has to offer.

Today I got in a pretty decent day of work before 5 o’clock. I was important to get every case wrapped up and put away for the weekend. Now I am free to turn my mind to Vegas, but not yet.

My Grandmother is in an “elderly health care center”. She developed a blood clot behind one of her knees and has been unable to walk without sever pain for weeks. It put her in the hospital for a while and now they are trying to get her mobility back so that she can return to her house. Current estimates are that it will take 4 or 5 more weeks. The poor woman is not happy about the situation. I can’ blame her. She has always been a home body and now she is forced to eat their food and live on their schedule. I wouldn’t like it either. So to break her monotony, I stopped by for a visit. I don’t know about her, but it made me feel better. I could see that the facility was nice and neat. The staff seems to care about what they were doing. Great, with that done I can turn my mind to Vegas!! but not yet.

Next on the agenda is my Wednesday night pool league. With all of the travel to Europe and Vegas and Vancouver and illnesses, I’ve not been able to make many matches so it was important that I squeeze in a trip to the pool hall. It was a good thing that I did. I pulled a match with a tough opponent. Because of the handicap system used by the APA, I had to win 5 games (8 ball) before he won 4. It started out well enough with me taking the first game. Through good shooting and good luck, he took the next 3 games leaving me to win 4 in a row or post a big L. I got hot and lucky at the right time taking all four of the remaining games to win the match. Post a big win for the Hall of Justice. Now I can really turn my mind to Vegas.

I arrive at 4:20 tomorrow where the Tilt Zero boys will pick me up and put me on my way. I’m ready.

Hi, i'm Morgs - New around these 'ere parts.
Sorry to hear about your Grandmother, mine went through something similiar with the blood clots, it didn't help that she got this while -in the hospital- recovering from a stroke, she's doing better now.
Good luck to you.

I don't know much about these blogs, but it'd be cool if we could do some sort of exchange, is there a friends list or something?

Just a word of friendly advice coz I loved your site so much. What you're doing here, Google Adsense won't like when they find out. You are not supossed to entice folks to click on the ads in any way. They'll suspend your account when they find out.

I reckon this blog is good enough and with time and slightly more knowledge you can do very well with Adense.

Seek the LORD
while you can find
Him. Call on Him
now while He is
near. Let the people
turn from their wicked
deeds. Let them banish
from their minds the very
thought of doing wrong!
Let them turn to the LORD
that He may have mercy
on them. Yes, turn to our
God, for He will abundantly
pardon. "My thoughts are
completely different from
yours," says the LORD.
"And my ways are far
beyond anything you
could imagine. For just
as the heavens are higher
than the earth, so are My
ways higher than your ways
and my thoughts higher than
your thoughts. "The rain and
snow come down from the
heavens and stay on the
ground to water the earth.
They cause the grain to grow,
producing seed for the farmer
and bread for the hungry. It is
the same with my word. I send
it out, and it always produces
fruit. It will accomplish all I
want it to, and it will prosper
everywhere I send it. You will
live in joy and peace. The mountains
and hills will burst into song, and the
trees of the field will clap their hands!
Where once there were thorns, cypress
trees will grow. Where briers grew,
myrtles will sprout up. This miracle will
bring great honor to the LORD's name;
it will be an everlasting sign of His power
and love.

You have a riveting web log
and undoubtedly must have
atypical & quiescent potential
for your intended readership.
May I suggest that you do
everything in your power to
honor your encyclopedic/omniscient
Designer/Architect as well
as your revering audience.
As soon as we acknowledge
this Supreme Designer/Architect,
Who has erected the beauteous
fabric of the universe, our minds
must necessarily be ravished with
wonder at this infinite goodness,
wisdom and power.

Please remember to never
restrict anyone's opportunities
for ascertaining uninterrupted
existence for their quintessence.

Best wishes for continued ascendancy,
Dr. Howdy
