All Alone

Well, it finally happened. The Wife left me. Of course, it was for a woman. I always suspected there was something fishy when it was her who suggested we all go out to the strip club in Vegas.

Actually, she is pulling a classic Thelma and Louise with her new-found bestest friend Betty Underground, as they drive their awesome hunk-magnet mobile (honestly, a Prius???) from California to Montana. The little messages from her new Crackberry have been interesting...

So that leaves me and the boys to fend for ourselves. Of course, we have our new Au Pair (Paola) to help out, too. She's awesome and the boys seem to really like her. The transition from Tati to Paola was very smooth, at least on our end. Tati is having a rougher time of it in Florida. I hope things work out for her - she's a really good kid.

I haven't played poker in forever. I got out to the Ironhorse Casino to meet up with Easycure and his lovely wife who were in town for just a couple days. Zeem was out there too and I think I bought a round of drinks before running for the exit in order to yack in the parking lot. That's the first time I've ever not finished my drink. Still it was good to see the gang. Hopefully we'll do it again soon.

And to my one (or maybe two) reader(s) out there who care, I went with the Laco watch. Hopefully I'll have pictures as soon as The Wife shows me how to use the macro function on her camera. Of course, she'll have to come back first...

Very nice selection.

Now remember, Chocolate Cake is NOT an option for breakfast. (See Bill Cosby)

What else is up?

Just curious....
Was this your way of telling the 2,000 miles away Wife, you bought the watch?
