Putting the win back in Winnamucca

Spending the weekend in the wonderful ( sarcastic ) Winnamucca,NV had a job to do out here ( 180 miles from Reno ) and it was a good excuse to get out of town. This time of the year in Reno we have Hot August Nights,and the tourist traffic is just the worst. We have done this from time to time before and it was mostly a good time.

Hotel Lobby Photos

The Model T hotel was a good place to stay and the slots were not to bad, you an walk the whole town in 30 mins so it was a good place to start. Then some large chain bought them and it went down hill from there. This time we are staying at the Winners Casino ( 2nd time I think ) Its been here for what seems 100 + years.

Side street

The last few times we have come to Winnamucca the gaming and slots have not been so nice, not that I want to go home rich it would just be nice to win enough to keep playing. So far Winners Casino slots have not been so good,it Friday and the weekend is just getting started so lets keep a open mind.

Friday night cam and went and besides drinking to much it was a bust as for gambling, from the Model T to the Winners inn they took us. It was so bad that we decided to come home on Saturday instead of Sunday.

Maybe next time Winnamucca……

Got the call yesterday Donta

This is just so I can remind him when he gets older that yesterday I got a call from his mom about him surfing “adult” content on the web. Now you are 10 years old now it’s its “about” the rite age. You’re mom and grandma don’t think so..lol

Off to see Hugh Jackman

So the wife got us tickets to see Hugh Jackman one man show in Vegas this weekend. I love him as a actor and have seen bits and pieces of some of his shows where he is dancing and singing.

Got to Las Vegas late on Friday night, I was surprised I stayed up so late 1am is way past my bedtime. Vegas temperature around this time of year 110F during the day so you want to avoid going outside for long.

The trip was a good time and I came home with money in my pocket,my son had to driver back home ( 4 hours ) with a nasty hangover…lol.

Day of medical testing

So today was the day I had set up for my heart checking, I was not looking forward to this day for a few reason. One no food no coffee and no nicotine for 12 hours up to the test. Now this would show a very stressed Eric then normal but not the way I live everyday. Why don’t they test people how they are at the end of a regular “Monday”.

With that question out there the testing from 8 am to 1 pm was not a bad as I thought it was going to be. They moved the times around so I could get it everything done at once ,being diabetic its’s been a long time since I went that long without food.

I went to Northern Nevada Medical Center for the testing thinking this might be a “cheaper” alternative to Renown Reno. The staff at NNMC has always been the best when it comes to service and attentiveness. Its a smaller hospital then Renown.

Now comes the issue I have with the billing departments I think they hired people that used to work in the KGB. They are so aggressive It almost makes me want to go some where else.

Blocked by Facebook…

So I have been blocked for posting a photo to CLOSED group on Facebook. The photo was of a pin-up girl,with tassels over her nipples and would be rated PG 13 by most standards. I was just about to get pissed off about this how Facebook double standards of STEALING my data SELLING out my friends list and PRIVACY VIOLATIONS.

Then I thought wait it’s just Facebook if they want to stop people from using the platform as “punishment” maybe we should all go somewhere else. I wanted to put all kinds of bad words in for #facebook but that might offend someone…
