You will notice my seat is empty ...

My AQ call against Diggers all in with 43o (which I correctly saw as a move) was of course binked by a river 4. and I was hurt badly with the blinds at 500/1000.

two hands later pushed with 67 sooted and was insta called with A5 --- FML

I will now give up, surrender and take up peruvian embroidery

see you in 2025.........

There is a problem with holidays as the wee man and Marie get older. Family holidays were the norm when they were all little, but now that the mother has fecked off and Sarah has left the nest and they are older it"s a grind to figure out what to do.

Marie is 25 this year and as such I don"t see her much, the only time know she is in the house is if the washing machine is on when I come home from work.

Picking where to go with the wee man is a problem as he is 18 and doesn"t want his eejit of a father around when he is on holiday.

Solution.....................

However the wee man likes playing poker..

soooooooooo.

For 10 days in August we are going to visit some of my favourite casinos and play poker ending up at the APAT World"s in DTD....

Sorted.

We start in Edinburgh move to Newcastle on to Leeds then down to DTD for 5 days. He has an agressive game and I have 50% of him - watch out people we are coming to a Casino near you

61 fecking years..... Sixty fecking one

The mind games are over the only thing now is the match.

Warren Gatland has issued a half-hearted apology, or so it would seem after his attempted climb-down yesterday following some ill-advised comments last Tuesday. It might backfire and put the required spirit into us.

It is time to finally end the pre-match shenanigans and focus on the game that has a Grand Slam, Triple Crown and Six Nations title riding on it.

FFS No pressure then.

Wales go in search of the 13-point winning margin required to bring them the Triple Crown and Six Nations title. So it's a game not to be missed and will go down to the wire I reckon.

With four wins from four, it is hard not to be optimistic about today. However to get past Wales" in-your-face approach, we must employ greater depth and chip and grubber beyond the onrushing Welsh.

I will be enjoying a full day of beer and rugby which hopefully will end in

France beating Italy
Scotland winning the Calcutta Cup

And

Ireland winning the Grand Slam and Triple Crown

William Hill have Ireland at 13/10 with Wales at 7/10. With Brian O"Driscoll at 14/1 to score the first try.

I have of course invested

Oh and one of the surviving players of the last Grand Slam in 1948, the great Jackie Kyle (arguably the best out half ever) said they will win and that"s good enough for me.

Whilst being bored by the France/Italy game I doodled some anagrams.

As you all know an anagram is a word (or words) that is made by changing the order of the letters in another word (or words). For example:

Dormitory = Dirty Room
The Countryside = No City Dust Here
Statue of Liberty = Built to Stay Free
Mother In Law = Hitler Woman

sigh - must get out more
