It was a long weekend. I got home late in the evening on both days and just couldn't get myself to do anything. I would park myself in front of the television and just turn my mind off while watching.

The tournaments on Saturday went well and I ended up dealing three of them. The last one of the day was the hardest. When you get people that are rude at the table it makes it hard to be nice. I think we get the idea, it is a tournament and you are paying very little money and getting a quaranteed amount. Some of us have not been dealers very long, at least not a year, and we are trying our best to deal and maintain the speed to allow hands to be played.

If you want the best dealers then go to the bigger casinos where you can pay hundreds of dollars and they will be perfect in every way. I am having fun dealing and once that is gone then I will go back to playing tournaments again myself.

I am having an issue at this point with people trusting the players story of a hand over the dealers. I thought our story of the hand would be taken by the floor personnel and then acted upon. When you give your story it should be a done deal with the floor. No, I quess we now will run down verbally the dealer and not accept the story. Then you have players that will not like what took place and will call the poker manager and complain and then still not be accepted as the true story.

There is so much drama going on right now it just makes you not want to be there. I was thinking about playing today but then I don't want to deal with all of the other stuff that is going on. It is easier to just take the day off and do other things like taxes.

I haven't made it to Virtual Pomeroy yet. I have 12 miles to go and will get there today. This weekend just didn't get it done. I want to take Saturday off and after yesterday and getting home late I was not in the mood to sit on the bike and ride. Having ridden 87 miles this last week is still good. I am not sure I will get that many this week but will get the itenerary set up.

Today my dad and I will be going to Red Lobster for lunch. I love to eat fish and we don't get it very often.

Have a fun day.....
