Smoking is now illegal in SC City Parks


Cute Racy Little Joke

From a friend in Missouri. Yes, I know someone in Missouri YOU people don't know. ;-)

THE QUICKEY


The only way to pull off a Sunday afternoon quickie with their 8 year old son in the apartment was to send him out on the balcony with a Popsicle and tell him to report on all the neighborhood activities.

He began his commentary as his parents put their plan into operation:

"There's a car being towed from the parking lot", he shouted.
A few moments passed . "An ambulance just drove by"
A few moments later," Looks like the Anderson's have company", he called out.
"Matt's riding a new bike....."
A few moments later, 'Looks like the Sanders are moving"
"Jason is on his skate board...."

A few more moments, "The Coopers are having sex!!"

Startled, his Mother and Dad shot up in bed ! Dad cautiously called out, "How do you know they are having sex?"

"Jimmy Cooper is standing on his balcony with a Popsicle too."

Hey, Who has a memory?

What was the festival, world beat alternative lifestyle all-female band with the singer named Dana? Long blonde hair? We never hardly ever missed a show? Played the Cat and Fat Fry?

Zeke's Bistro and Casino

Looks like he got him a deal. We broke it in with skirt steak (because we didn't get enough skirt the night before) and salmon because, just because. The neighbors came over and played "poker" and we all had a fine time. I cinderella'd just before sundown as we'd been watching CHP pull over cars all.day.long.
Is it me or has poker gone to hell? Where's the long, leisure days and nights of throwing chips and cards? Now it's all about tournament play even if it's not a tournament. Let's see. We can take our $5.00 buy-in and bet it all in one shot. "ALL IN" is the cry. Then there's the issues about ante. It's just impossible to explain the ante routine to someone who doesn't understand. I'll try here and maybe get some understanding from the TV poker crowd.
The reason why TV poker has blind bets is because we're just seeing either a star-studded prearranged table of people who're going to win thousands of dollars anyways or we're seeing a tournament. I get to have an argument every damn time I play TV watchers about antes. Every. Body. Antes. The blinds. Are blind bets. The reason for the blind bets. Is that if you didn't have blind bets. No one would play until they had a big hand. The tournament would last forever. No one would play except people with big hands. The blind bets force the players to bet. Now in cash poker, you don't need blind bets. We aren't playing a tournament. We don't care how long it takes because there isn't going to be one big take it all winner. We're playing poker. What's even more unnerving for me is that playing TV tournament poker during dealer's choice means the dealer has no idea or ignores the idea of cash poker and suddenly turns the game into a tourney with blind bets and a rotating dealer. That means the dealer unhinges the game by changing the betting rules and order of play AND for some reason which he will undoubtably argue about loudly, the dealer himself shouldn't ante. How does that make sense? "That's the way they do it on TV." Bullshit. Now, if you want to start a tournament and play no limit, let's go.
