HARVEST ADVENTURES FROM AN ADDICTED CHIP COLLECTOR

BY RICHARD “REGGIE” GUMMER
SOME PEOPLE HAVE COMPULSIONS TO GAMBLE, SOME TO AMASS FORTUNES AND OTHER’S, WELL THEY JUST LIKE TO WRITE STORIES. YEAH, THAT WOULD BE ME. I HAVE ALWAYS LIKED TO WRITE, NEVER WAS VERY GOOD AT IT; BUT I HAVE DONE IT OVER THE YEARS JUST THE SAME.
IF ANY OF YOU WANT ANY INSIDE INFORMATION ON ANY CASINO THAT I’VE BEEN TO, I WOULD BE HAPPY TO TELL YOU WHAT I KNOW.

PERSONAL HARVESTING STORIES

MONTBLEU LAKE TAHOE, NV

By:RICHARD “REGGIE” GUMMER

MONTBLEU AS MOST OF YOU KNOW IS THE OLD “CAESAR’S PALACE” IN LAKE TAHOE. I HAVE ENJOYED PLAYING POKER THERE AND HARVESTING CHIPS A CONSIDERABLE AMOUNT OF TIMES. BUT, THE LAST TIME IS THE ONE I MUST RELATE A SHORT STORY ABOUT. NANCY AND I WERE MARRIED THERE IN AUGUST OF 2007.
THE NIGHT BEFORE THE WEDDING, I WAS ALREADY FRIED FROM RUNNING ERRANDS AND GETTING THINGS READY FOR THE WEDDING, FINDING A PARKING SPOT FOR THE RV, ETC., THE GUYS HAD TO TAKE ME OUT TO ALL THE CASINOS, MY SON AND FRIENDS FROM CALIFORNIA. I AM ALMOST ASHAMED TO SAY I WAS HEADED FOR BED RIGHT ABOUT THE WITCHING HOUR OF 12. I DID GATHER A FEW CHIPS, MOST MEMORABLE WAS THE BILLS CASINO, NOT KNOWING IT WOULD BE CLOSING UP SOON.
NANCY AND I WERE MARRIED IN LAKE TAHOE IN 2007 AT TIME SHARE COMMUNITY CENTER, WE HAD ABOUT 40+ PEOPLE THERE. HER BROTHERS FAMILY FROM FLORIDA, A BUNCH OF MY FRIENDS FROM CALIFORNIA, AND MY YOUNGEST SON WHO WAS THE BESTMAN AND NANCY BEST FRIEND FOR OVER 50 YEARS WHO WAS HER BRIDESMAID. THEN, AFTER THE WEDDING WE TOOK EVERYONE OUT ON THE MS DIXIE PADDLEWHEELER, FOR DINNER AND DANCING. AFTER ALL THAT WE MOVED INTO THE MONTBLEAU FOR A COUPLE DAYS BEFORE WE LEFT FOR LAS VEGAS AND MY FIRST CONVENTION AT THE RIVIERA.
THE DAY AFTER THE WEDDING WE ALL MET IN THE RESTAURANT AT THE MONTBLEU, THAT WAS A LOT OF FUN. I MADE MY LAST PASS AT THE CASHIER, TO BUY SOME MONTBLEU GRAND OPENING CHIPS.
NO, I DO NOT BELIEVE I BOUGHT ENOUGH CHIPS HERE AT THE MONTBLEU…REGGIE
