from moms house

well mom wanted to take some pictures today, so ill have some to show u soon, once Mark helps her get them onto facebook from her camera. Hes more tech smart than she is even though hes quite less smart overall. she wanted me to be completely clean shaven no mustache or beard, and even Mark thought i looked better after a visit to the barbar to have both completely removed.

also mom wanted me to be dressed my best with new pants and shirt when i go bowling tonight with Mark (Josie had it off by one day-i told her wed night). actually i told her tomorrow night yesterday in an email sent about 1am, so i can see how she got the day wrong.

Mark seems to be gone a lot, mostly wanting to be out riding his bike, or socializing with his friends. He's a very good kid, at 21, to not have drunk, smoked, had sex, or used drugs. dont get in fights either. although moms afraid to have him upstairs at night, so she locks the door connecting the basement to the kitchen. but the basement could be rented out, its completely seperate with 4 rooms, bathroom, and its own entrance to the back door. also he has a microwave, fridge, oven, etc.

mom goes to bed early, and i normally sleep til 12noon or 2pm. she gets up very early in the morning, and she said she wishes i got up earlier so she could spend more time visiting me. she also said she wished i could stay longer. being here 9 days instead of 7 is about the max i can stand.

i think it was quite offensive of PPP to publish that since he did it for the sole purpose of making mom look bad instead of for informative reasons, but to state how he disagreed. i dont see anything odd about moms post--thats something clearly taught in the Bible that all Christians should believe, or at least have for centuries. i can see why people who dont know God might disagree, but its been thought that way for many centuries. only recently have a lot of peoples views changed.

we've played a lot of board games, uno with mark, and scrabble, the farming game, and real estate (which i invented years ago) with mom. Still havent got to play skipbo yet. and ive been reading some of moms books by Jerry Jenkins. watched a couple of movies too, the last one being the pledge, the first one being question 7 about life for Christians back in the days east germany was communist.

  1. Tony I never compliment you because you are not a good person BUT I must say that I am glad you went home for family. They will always love you - the money comes and goes but they will always be there when you need them. Do not ever take your family for granted.

  15. Tony:

    Great photo - thanks for posting that. Mark is a good looking young man. Can I ask, is your mom's fear of Mark based on past behavior Mark has exhibited? She seems pretty concerned, to not want him upstairs at night for her safety.

    I hope you're having fun and enjoying their company (and SHOWING them that you enjoy their company and that you value them!).

    s.i.

  16. i am glad i didnt have to make any deposits in any online sites while im here--am really worried how ill have money to live on and play with when i fly home sunday night. im estimating about $3300-3400. after renting a place, phone and net for may, ill barely have 3000. and ive still got that bad tooth also. shouldve accepted moms offer to have her pay to see what needs done (not to do the work but to get an exam) last monday. but i didnt want to be here til i could afford myself to pay those things, so i let it go. mark is often away from the house--he gets into arguments with grandma alot.

    finding $3.64 on BCP id forgot about long ago is what saved me making any deposits, that $3.64 is now just over $9

  17. Tony, glad you made it back to Lyons and spending time with your family. Please reconsider your mom's offer to get your tooth examined, it can be a serious problem if u keep ignoring it.

    Hi Tony,
    I've followed your antics since day one and we even met at the Stratosphere years ago. I'm not a poster but you ask a specific question so I thought I'd chime in. The Shelbyville casino, Indiana Grand, has only electronic $1/$2 NLHE and often a $.50/$1 PL Omaha game. The poker room opens at 11 each day and a table starts up shortly afterwards.

    They also have daily tournaments that get 40-60 players.

    The casino is along I74 and is out away from town, although there are shuttles from the local hotels.

    They do have electronic blackjack with the hot virtual dealers. There are no actual playing cards at the on-land casinos in Indiana, only on the riverboats. Water apparently makes it more difficult for God to know you're gambling. Hoosier logic.

    Good luck and let me know if you need more info. If you play there, there is money to be made.

    Mr. Reed
