Forenoon watch, 5 bells (10:53 am)

Well, I was just writing my last blog entry when Mr. Pookies turned the hall light off for me. Only thing is, I was going back to do some vacuuming down there and wanted the light on. He's really excited about being able to make that light go on and off by himself.

Sam’s coming

Forenoon watch, 5 bells (10:52 am)

My brother Sam is coming to stay with me for a few days while he is in town. He used to live with me, and is probably the only sibling with whom I could coexist in the same house for months on end without going postal. He should be in town through the weekend.

My book

Morning watch, 8 bells (8:20 am)

Well, it's the home stretch, I'm working on the last bit of my book and I'll be done. Last night after poker I put the cloth cover on, now all that's left is gluing the front page down to the board and slitting the quartos. It looks quite fine, I think I'll take another picture of it and put it on my bookbinding site.

Poker Night
Posted in General
Morning watch, 8 bells (8:18 am)

Well, last night was poker night, No Limit Texas Hold 'em. We played for about 4 hours straight before TS finally won it. I was the first to go out, but I really thought I would win that hand... JT got the card he needed on the river after going all in. I had queens and tens and was sure I had the hand. The river card was a king, which gave JT kings and fours. That hand cost me 82 chips, I had about 20 left after that. But it was a lot of fun. There were quite a few upsets last night, and some really good hands were played. JT was the next person to go out, followed by LB, then JS.
