Face, ever read Hemingway's 'Big Two Hearted River'? Best fishing
story I ever read. You can find it online if you haven't read it.



Nope, just snippets that you've posted in the past. I suppose I'm going to have to get it, and I'll probably do so soon.

Winter is coming.

And, get this, they even had a cigarette vending machine! I haven’t seen one of these since I was about 6 years old, but there it was. It wasn’t the old-school “insert coin and pull lever” type, rather it was a modern, “insert bill and push button” digital version. I didn’t even know they made those things anymore.


I've seen one of these newer machines in exactly one place: a strip club/adult bookstore.

But a dive bar I used to frequent had a much older machine. Still bill-operated; all packs $10. But the catch was, the machine was so old it wouldn't recognize any of the newer $10 bills. You had to have an ancient $10 bill, think small-head bill like this, to make that thing work. The bartender would hold on to any of them that came through the cash register and trade them with the smokers so they could get their pack :).

Face, I didn't know you had native heritage. My girlfriend's family comes from Vermont and her dad and his cousins are very much involved in the Abenaki tribe up there...she had a 2nd cousin who was elected chief for a while..anyway, just curious, if you don't mind sharing, what tribe/nation your family comes from?

Josie half brother is native American. 7 feet tall, over 400 lbs, has never shaved, Sadly he is now in assisted living, age 70. And lost in his own mind. Last year he still had some touch with reality and when Josie was out of the room, Joe told me he knew he was never leaving Alice Manor.
This past year he is only lucid for short intervals. But told me it's not so bad because he only stays there 3 hours a day now.
The rest of the time he is driving a fire truck or at the casino he owns.
SAD !

Wheeling Island Hotel, Casino, Racetrack has one newer one. It's by the restrooms on the side with the really s****y slot games, corridor between the back end of the place and the tables.

What does a Gaming Investigator do?



I missed this...

Pretty much the same thing as a criminal investigator, except instead of rapes and murders, I do thefts and frauds (mostly). Probably the closest I can compare it to is being a CFE, except instead of coming in, pissing a bunch of people off, and moving to the new case, I come in, piss a bunch of people off, then have to continue working with them (or see them at the store, or at company picnics, or community events, or at our children's school function...)

Much like hockey, I have a handful of people who really like me, and mobs of others who'd like nothing more than to see something very bad happen to me. C'est la vie.

Seneca, the Keepers of the Western Door, one of the Six Nations of the Iroquios Confederacy, living in the same region of WNY that my ancestors have since time beyond rememberance. I'm right now just a few miles from the original grave of Chief Cornplanter (before it was flooded by Lake Perfidy). And when I head to the Falls on Wednesday, I'll pass just a few miles from the grave of Red Jacket (not the gun shop on TV, but the man it was named after).

Tons of history all around, should one care to look for it.

That is really cool man. I agree, so much history right here if you care to look around for it...
