wow this blog post is way overdue. im getting to be like PPP. my last post was a whole week ago.
1. Ray drove to chicago amtrak to pick me up, got lost finding the place due to massive construction and lanes closed off. 2. Ray didnt charge me any of his $70-100 in gas and tolls. 3. Ray kept ordering me drinks and tipping the waitress for me when i didnt really need them without me asking. 4. Ray told me not to worry ill get it when driving thru mcdonalds. 5. Ray has almost 0 possessions, a quite empty house and old truck, but has 2 big bibles in it. 6. Ray pretty much left it up to me when to quit the poker games. he won $145, and i won $186. 7. hes not into technology, and was quite glad i was able to find google directions home from the blue chip casino in IN where we went after leaving the majestic star. 8. Ray let me stay in the nicest room in his house (the only bed) and we stopped at walmart to get food. 9. while sleeping this morning, Ray left the house to make me some keys. i woke up, no one here, worried the rapture took place.
this is a true servant of God almighty, kind of like the guys in toledo who had the law office downtown they used exclusively for pro-life work in the 1990s connected with operation rescue. they let me and about 2-3 other homeless people live there free of charge. it too was very old and sparse building with nothing in it. i was 20-22 about when i stayed there like 2 months. he dont care about money--nor does he think of himself first. he says i dont owe him a thing for staying here. and yet his poker roll is only $600. this will really help to get my $29,000 back in the next 6 months so i can be back to being indepent and able to give the higher stakes another shot.
remember i didnt really lose it at $2-5 like i said. i lost it on foolish things. machines in deadwood, machines at foxwoods expenses, live table games in foxwoods. about $2000 was all i lost on $2-5. 4 buyins is all. i felt like i lost at $2-5 because in 2 weeks went from being UP $2000+ in it, to being DOWN $2000+ ($4000+ swing) so of course i needlessly panicked.
when Ray gets home, we will go buy things at the thrift store for this place, and then visit the poker room in downtown toledo ive still not yet been too. too tired last night. here is a picture of my room.
