GUEST AUTHORS OF HARVEST STORIES AND THEIR ADVENTURES


A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO I STARTED ASKING GUEST AUTHORS TO SUBMIT HIS/HER’S HARVEST STORIES. (WHEN I WAS STILL DOING THE POD – PAGE OF THE DAY)
AT THIS WRITING I HAVE 60+ STORIES TO SHARE. I AM HOPING THAT A FEW MORE AUTHORS WILL STEP UP TO THE PLATE, AND THESE VERY PROLIFIC “CHIPPERS” WILL COME UP WITH A FEW MORE. I WILL CONTINUE TO RE RUN THESE STORIES THROUGH THE COMING YEAR.
THESE STORIES ARE ALWAYS INFORMATIVE AND USUALLY HAVE A BIT OF TONGUE AND CHEEK HUMOR.
IT IS ALWAYS FUN TO SHARE WITH OTHERS, DIFFERENT WAYS OF HARVESTING, THE TRIALS AND TRIBULATIONS THAT WE HAVE FACED OUT THERE WHILE WE WERE HARVESTING.

A GUEST AUTHOR’s HARVEST STORY

PEPPERMILL CASINO – RENO, NV

By:J ERIC FREEDNER


Sometimes chip hunting overlaps with other casino occurrences which are just to memorable to keep to myself!

Over this past weekend, I was in Reno for the Chip Dig Show and growing tired of losing cash in the slot machines of that city's finest establishments, decided to drive down to the Peppermill for dinner.

That accomplished, I noticed "new" $25 chips all over the tables - actually the 1999 issue showing a roulette wheel, dice and cards, and bought one from an Asian table dealer who probably could not figure out why I wanted one, not to play at his table.

There remained the matter of a remaining TITO, so off I went to the cashier. A man - seemingly the Casino Manager judging by his fine attire and demeanor - was talking to a cashier and, seeing me waiting, motioned for me to step forward. "I want you to give her a real hard time," he said with a smile. "She's retiring and this is her last night working here."

Thinking fast, I asked the grey-haired cashier, "What, are you going to start at the Atlantis?"

The Manager turned around. The other cashiers stopped their work. The cashier said, "No, no, no, I'd never work there!" And then they all laughed heartily. Mission accomplished, and I wished the cashier a happy, well-earned retirement.
