A free man at last

I apologize to my readers for not having posted in such a long time. Unfortunately I was incarcerated for 2 months on a trumped-up assault charge brought by MGM and the Nevada Gaming Commission.

Last December, I was getting seated in a $1/$3 game when the dealer asked if I had a players card. I had barely finished arranging my chips on the table when, to my great consternation, he repeated the same question. I immediately pulled out my MLife card and flung it at him so hard that it cracked the left lens of his eyeglasses, and then ricocheted off into the neck of the service dog in Seat 1's lap, causing it to bite the dealer in the groin.

I tried getting legal representation from famed attorney Pete P. Peters, but he was too busy attending a convention at MGM National Harbor, so I was stuck with some rookie from the Public Defender's Office, hence my 60 days behind bars.

Fellow blogger lightning36 was the only one who knew about my plight, and did visit me in jail while he was here in Vegas. I also appreciate the fact that he didn't reveal any of the embarrassing details in his latest blog trip reports.

Welcome back to the world.

I don't blame you. It is SO annoying to be asked for your player's card. What an intrusion on your life. Next time they ask you, you should just say "Go ef yourself." Then when you leave be sure to go to the podium and demand to be back-credited for your time there.

Sorry I missed your call. It's a shame; particularly since poker law is my specialty. Confident I could have gotten you probation for this offense.

Glad to see u came clean. u see, be very careful with your PLAYERS CARD, of course. Next tiime I will try so sneak a higher quality file in the cake I will bring u. My cheap Walmarts one just wouldn't do the trick, apparently.

While reading your new post, I read my wife your previous one about working at Walmart. She got quite a chuckle out of it.

Every time I visit this blog, I end up watching that GIF on loop for about 5 minutes and chuckle. My co-workers must think I'm nuts. :-D

Thank you all for the kind words. The knowledge that I would eventually be able to post in my blog was the only thing that kept my spirits up in those dark 60 days.
