A snippet from the net:

World-famous businessman and “Celebrity Apprentice” guru, Donald Trump, is no stranger to gambling.
“Oh I like a lot of them, over the years I’ve owned casinos and I still do,” he muses. “But my favorite is Blackjack. I’m pretty good.”
What’s the most he’s ever won? “Well, I can’t tell you that because legally I’m not allowed to talk about the casino world,” he explains. “But it was a lot.”
And there you have it.

So, has anyone heard from Mouse yet that he is all moved?
Mouse, welcome to your new abode. Just remember that Flames is your natural home, no matter where you sleep.
I hope the move went well, that settling in is easy, and that you are content and comfortable in your new space.

Pick it and/or grin

Sandra is no known relation. Likes dogs and America too.





Tin foil version, you say?





One Cox I knew took the join up or go to jail route. Still looks mean as ever some 50 years later. Willie is the only guy he feared.

Just look at them designer yoyos.

zB,
Hot Creek Hot Springs: are they medicine springs? Do animals come to wade, or doing, or eat the mineral salts? There are some hot springs (well, there are many in the Yellowstone area) over in Idaho, where animals come to lick the salts, and sometimes to soak. Well-worn trails from the animals.
Fascinating place, enjoyed the video, but yes, interesting music. f*f

Hot Creek was a night's cheap entertainment after a day of skiing at Mammoth.

Apparently it is closed these days (2012 notice)


According to Jon Regelbrugge Inyo National Forest supervisor for the Mammoth Lakes region, Hot Creek is “… not likely to reopen unless we learn enough about the predictability of geologic hazards associated with Hot Creek that we would be comfortable with some degree of certainty that we aren’t exposing the public to unpredictable and uncertain hazards.”

Mouse be moving into Nita and my old hood way back in the 1900s. Things probably haven't changed too much in Rawhide. Probably takes a while to sort out an Internet connection.
Auto correct capitalizes internet because it deems it more important than u or i.
Weep em and read GOTD. ;)
Still have one minute "on the clock".
I can get you fired.

Hey Mhan hows pix & trix?



from AoxomoxoA, back in the day

https://youtu.be/W-s0lFpflQw


the song the persona & the vibe

St. Stephen
by the Grateful Dead


Saint Stephen with a rose

In and out of the garden he goes

Country garden in the wind and the rain

Wherever he goes the people all complain



Stephen prospered in his time

Well, he may and he may decline

Did it matter, does it now?

Stephen would answer if he only knew how



Wishing well with a golden bell

Bucket hangin' clear to Hell

Hell halfway twixt now and then



Stephen fill it up
and lower down and lower down again


Lady finger, dipped in moonlight

Writing, "What for?", across the morning sky



Sunlight splatters, dawn with answer(s)

Darkness shrugs and bids the day goodbye



Speeding arrow, sharp and narrow

What a lot of fleeting matters you have spurned



Several seasons with their treasons

Wrap the babe in scarlet colors, call it your own



Did he doubt or did he try?

Answers aplenty in the bye and bye


Talk about your plenty and talk about your ills

One man gathers what another man spills


Saint Stephen will remain

All he lost he shall regain

Seashore washed by the suds and foam

Been here so long,
he's got to callin' it home

Fortune comes a crawlin',
calliope woman

Spinnin' that curious sense of your own

Can you answer?
Yes, I can

What would be the answer to the answer man?


High green chilly winds and windy

Vines and loops around the twining

Shafts of lavender, they're crawling to the sun

Wonder who will water all the children of the garden
When they sigh about the barren lack of rain
and
troop so hungry 'neath the sky,

ay
Underfoot the ground is patched
With climbing arms of ivy
wrapped around
The Manzanita, dark and shiny in the breeze.



William Tell has stretched the bow

Till it won't stretch no furthermore


And all that they require in change

That hasn't gone before

Hartford Ct back in the day

hooblie,
I totally enjoyed your post, the images, and the play on words, too.
Thank you!

zB, oh, okay on the hot springs. Thank you for the explanation. We have some great wild hot springs around here, but they are all a hike in to them. The closer ones are commercial, lovely, but generally overstocked in winter. I guess the answer for many people is the hot tub.

Sunny and 52F here, but snow coming back in a few days. I saw a crocus being brave, and one daffodil has pushed up a double leaf. We might get Spring by summer. :)
