Tuesday Dec 8th

Posted on Dec 8, 2015

Just a couple of things to touch on today:

Jack’s new game got off to a bit of a rough start, but they should have all the wrinkles sorted out by this morning. Apparently you get to reach into the sack, pull out a prize, then put it back and opt for another prize. You can continue upgrading until you get a lump of coal – that could happen for the 1st, 2nd, or 6th pull. At least, that’s how they played it yesterday. We’ll see how it goes today…

There were two concerts announced yesterday – Gord Bamford & Joe Nichols (for the country fans), and Steve Martin & Martin Short for the bluegrass/SNL fans. The M&M show is in July so I won’t be trying for those – I’m hoping to be away all of July – but DANG that’d be good!!! If I’m still in town when it’s on, I may just pay for tickets…

I had lunch with two esteemed members of the WWV Club, and one of them was telling me about a trip that they won. Well FACK! That just made me all jealous and bummed out, so I wrote a letter to Zedta. You can read it HERE. I’ve been pretty good this year, I figure there’s no harm in asking…

Keep Trying and Happy Dialling!
