Greg's Game

Players: Greg, Ezzy, Gail, Charley, Peter, Dewey, Jim

This one was a killer for the Hill boys.  Our chips were absorbed all afternoon and then there was the final hand where Charlie took us completely out.
Dewey had A-K of hearts
Charlie had A-Q
Peter had A-J

The turn gave Charlie his pair of queens and that was that.

Peter was down about $100.  Dewey ended down $61.
Charlie had a grand collection of chips.

High hand was contested for a while with Ezzy's full house beat by Peter's full house.  Dewey cinched the deal with four kings by about 1:30 and they held up.

Jim took the cracked Aces.


The game celebrated Dewey's last game until October and Greg's last game until he turns 77.
Greg treated with some 7 up and Seagram's 7.  Perfect.

Jim had plenty of good music as always and good talk besides.  Dewey actually knew one fact, that Clapton's wife Pattie had been George Harrison's wife for many years while Clapton pined away for her and then finally married her when the Beatle divorced her.  He picked up with another woman later and had a son.  The song Layla was about Pattie. 

We talked politics until we enforced the no politics rule.
Too bad too.  I think we were close to making an endorsement. The consensus was one of these three fishermen.

It was pointed out that some of them were dead, but death for a politician is more an attribute than a liability.

Well, perhaps others can remember more hands than I do.  I'll try to add a few if I do.  I'll think about all the way to Vegas.


The big event this week was the purchase of a peeing boy statue for the D in downtown. 

The event was a secret with some hype for a few days

And then it was time for true art to emerge:
