Something to ponder on as you wander on

SIGNS AT THE TABLE..............

I wonder,, how well do I really know these guys at this table?...
Mike there,, has been my neighbor for years,, and my brother
Jim,, well he’s been around almost as long as I have…
But do I really know them,, what do I really know?...
Can they be trusted,, or are they just trying to pull a fast one…
I know what they think of me…Not to swift on the uptake
they say…Can’t read the signs…Yeah right…

I’ve been here all night,, same as them…I’m doing alright…
I wonder what they would do if the king was to fall,, or maybe
the queen…Would it make a difference to them?...
What then?...Maybe everyone has already made their choices,,
maybe it wouldn’t matter at all…One by one they make their
choices,, some take the chance…others don’t...How well do
I really know these guys at this table?...

“Hey Frank,, Frank…its your bet…are you in or out?”...

“I’m in…I call…….Kings over Queens…read em and weep”…

Not a bad pot for someone who can’t read the signs,,
I think to myself……………...

I think dog poker games would be more civilized. After all, none of them can hold a derringer under the table without opposable thumbs.

gt281:

You old dog - thanks for the mention. You should know that everyone tells the truth in Poker, right?

I made it another year, so this July I'm going back to Sin City to lose some more cash. Been saving my SS all this time just so that I can sit around the green felt with a few old dogs and talk about the days when we could get a steak for $3.50.

Take care.

Cats are like women,, they never listen...Dogs are like men,, they can be trained...lol...

Watch your double commas over at the Martian saucer,, it makes him itchy..........

Swubird said...

To Lorelei and gt281:

Clooney, of course. Since I have a thing about authority, it couldn't be any other way.

You can take that to the bank.

Drowsey Monkey said...

damn gt - that's probably one of the first things you've ever said that I agree with completely! LOL (about the cat/dog woman/man thing ... the the comma thing)

To Drowsey:
Agreeing with me is a sure sign of Psychosis,, you need to see a Doctor immediately……….

To SwuBird:
I had you pegged as the bouncer who was paid to beat up Clooney………..;-)
