These are slow sellers on eBay but do okay at flea markets and street fairs. What's confusing is some of the wholesalers ship these from China. I recently saw Red Rocks cards for $1. They were sealed and clipped.

One Halloween I handed out to the older kids decks of cards like that from the Silver Dollar casino in Washington. The next morning they were all over my lawn and street outside my house. I think some of the teenagers I gave them to were also not impressed.

I guess you should have gave gave them a print of dogs playing poker/ a friend in need. (-:

I don't always give "A Friend in Need." I rotate through several of them.

Longhorn: to me it is a small out of the way joint that tries harder because its got to try harder. IF you find yourself nearby, go visit don't trek there.

As to knicks and knacks (or is it nicks and nacks): I would take what is offered for free but I have had a tremendous aversion to any such things ever since my first trip to Vegas when I got rooked over a darned free key chain with my initials on it. It was a hot day, I saw the sign with its magic word and I went in for my free key chain which means "walk through all those slot machines to the tiny little window at the back. The woman lied to me and I didn't realize it. Claimed she didn't have them in my initials but the guy was on his way back with more. I should have been more alert. After all, how can they not have any "F"s or "S"s or "FS"s.? Finally I realized they were just making me wait around so I would play slot machines, so I became a bit boisterous and loudly informed them I would not play any of their machines in order to get my free keychain, so they "suddenly" found an "F" for me and I went back out into the heat wave.

So cards, trick dice, key chains etc. mean little to me.

My wife and I went to breakfast this morning at the Longhorn. A wonderful chicken fried steak and Shit on a Shingle was had. The bill was $9.85.

I stopped eating in there after they were forced to shutdown and clean the kitchen. Their food lost alot of its flavor. I'm waiting for it to season again. Probably go back in a couple years and give it another try.

This is the meal I got sick on twice there. But this was several years back. I suspected their refrigeration wasn't up to par.

(and twice was enough, didn't need any more confirmations)
Quasimodo? Does that name ring a bell?

Do they still have the $5 match play coupon on the placemats? It's been awhile since I ate there. Waitress got mad that I wanted two $4.99 chicken steaks instead of one $9.99 one.

I like that place. I'd go more often if it weren't way on the opposite side of Vegas from where I live.

Big Horn is much closer.
