PRESENT STATUS:

Still doing poorly with Basic Strategy. Getting many right but its mostly guesswork.
Gave up on Pai Gow Tiles.

Housing: Still in the county poorhouse. Will meet with a social worker next week for my Emergency Section 8 application but its just paperwork. Without Section 8, they won't evict me from the poorhouse, they just make me pay the full rent on my own plus utilities which works out to about $224.00 deficit per month. Food is extra but I have almost 35 pounds of beans and five ponds of rice stockpiled.

Food Stamps: If I have to pay full rent my food stamps go from $15.00 a month to $18.00 a month.

Food Bank: I've been reduced from two bags of junk food to one bag of junk food one day a month.

Meals On Wheels: I still get MoW deliveries but am scheduled for re-certification next week sometime.

Medical: Was handing someone a loaf of Wonder bread and lost my balance, but they saw I was in trouble and grabbed my arm.

Will get opened up tomorrow and IF they think it can be done they will insert a new catheter through the fifteen year old stent that is 99% occluded.



GREETINGS:
County Social Worker just dropped me home.
There was nothing they could do about the 99% occluded stent but they did feel that I had developed sufficient corrorally circulation.
They found another artery at 90% occlusion but were able to insert a stent thru that one. and they kept me overnight.
nothing else much happening but now I have more energy even though I couldn't sleep a wink in the hospital.

Glad you're feeling better. My thoughts are with you, best luck with this!
So many better men, a few of them friends, were dead. And a thousand thousand slimy things lived on, and so did I.

I don't know it is about the month of November. Always been unlucky.

Even the designer of the Seven Sisters who was probably doing the "T'pec" 300 miles out seems to have survived all his ordeals until that Polish freighter rammed his starboard Amas, thus dislodging him to the delight of the circling sharks had problems with November.

My poker girl thread, forum/gambling/poker/25950-blogger-obituary, was a drug 'overdose' in late November. You may recall my depiction of the drug world from the POV of a person who made just one mistake in a world wherein no mistakes are tolerated. I too made a mistake in a world where no mistakes are tolerated which is why I refer to myself in my blog as beyond redemption or salvation.

True to form it seems November is shaping up to be a doozy for me. I have not been making headway in relearning blackjack or reading skills and I am definitely losing the battle of the waistline. It seems my emergency section 8 housing re-application is not going well. brain damage was far more severe than I suspected. I intend to continue the struggle but is obvious that I am not really making headway and the Social Workers are no longer enthusiastic.



Thank you all for your concern, encouragement and support.

You really seem to articulate better than 90% of us here. Hard to imagine you having all these struggles. Keep working through them and you will succeed.

I thought once you were on Section 8 or whatever you just stay there on it unless your income changes. Would they actually kick you out on the street?

I have applied for section 8 but not been granted it. I missed the meeting for the application renewal because they said 'address first above' but printed it on the wrong form, so I stayed home waiting for them to show up.

They don't kick me out, they just stop paying my rent and utilities and then it becomes a civil eviction matter, since I now pay $95.00 in rent but will go to $760.00 upon termination of the county's assistance. I still get MoW delivered here though and I don't have to pay a cent for it.

During WW2, English women would advise USA and Canadian soldiers to "keep their peckers up", meaning to keep smiling and be of good cheer. Of course US and Canadian soldiers thought it was a reference to a distinctly different part of their anatomy.

Have you thought about trying to make some extra income online?

Also, isn't latest Casino bonuses looking for writers all the time? You can write and you have some knowledge of gambling. Try to contact Mike and ask him about this. From what I understand, considering a few people I know who are doing it, they will take just about anyone. 🤣

I think they pay fairly well from what I understand.
