  1. Looks like somebody went to Ohio again. Hope you remembered to visit the Creation Museum.

    On a warm summer’s evenin’ on a train bound for nowhere
    I met up with the gambler, we were both too tired to sleep
    So we took turns a starin’ out the window at the darkness
    ‘Til boredom overtook us and he began to speak

    He said, “Son, I’ve made a life, out of readin’ people’s faces
    And knowin’ what their cards were by the way they held their eyes
    So if you don’t mind my sayin’, I can see you’re out of aces
    For a taste of your whiskey I’ll give you some advice”

    So I handed him my bottle and he drank down my last swallow
    Then he bummed a cigarette and asked me for a light
    And the night got deathly quiet and his face lost all expression
    Said, “If you’re gonna play the game, boy, you gotta learn to play it right”

    You got to know when to hold ’em, know when to fold ’em
    Know when to walk away and know when to run
    You never count your money when you’re sittin’ at the table
    There’ll be time enough for countin’ when the dealing’s done

    Every gambler knows that the secret to survivin’
    Is knowin’ what to throw away and knowing what to keep
    ‘Cause every hand’s a winner and every hand’s a loser
    And the best that you can hope for is to die in your sleep

    And when he finished speakin’, he turned back towards the window
    Crushed out his cigarette and faded off to sleep
    And somewhere in the darkness the gambler, he broke even
    But in his final words I found an ace that I could keep

    You got to know when to hold ’em, know when to fold ’em
    Know when to walk away and know when to run
    You never count your money when you’re sittin’ at the table
    There’ll be time enough for countin’ when the dealing’s done

    You got to know when to hold ’em, know when to fold ’em
    Know when to walk away and know when to run
    You never count your money when you’re sittin’ at the table
    There’ll be time enough for countin’ when the dealing’s done

    You got to know when to hold ’em, know when to fold ’em
    Know when to walk away and know when to run
    You never count your money when you’re sittin’ at the table
    There’ll be time enough for countin’ when the dealing’s done

    Not Ohio — we went specifically for a triannual horse race named for a famous horse whose last owner was… SOMEONE who was misinformed as to the date. All we saw there was this.

    So we went to Luray. Pretty cool.

  4. A quote from my wife comes to mind, which I will gender transmogrify for this context:

    “Think on it, before you let her take your name.”

    Video may follow if I have time.

  5. Corn, you must have missed something cause the last time I was at the track in Charles Town I put my money on the five horse. I’m pretty sure that horse is still running.

  6. Students at UG Athens break into Kenny Roger’s compound and cavort on his riding lawn mowers. A rite of passage.
