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)

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

AUGUSTINE CASINO COACHELLA, CA

By: Steve Gobel


This is a nice little place out in the Farm Country part of the Coachella Valley. I'd been here before and liked it, but not with my Nevada DL, so I got a new Slot Card. Choice of $10 in Slot Play or a $10 table voucher. I took the $10 voucher to the tables, and alas, no Pai Gow! I'd have to play blackjack. Oh, The Horror! Pushed the first hand, hit my 13 with a 7 against the dealers 10 up, they let the voucher ride, and won the second hand not hitting my 14 with the dealers 3 up! Dealer showed a deuce in the hole and drew 2 10's. Hello! - Back on top of my game again: Win One and Run. For all you big gamblers, not so fun just winning $20 when there might be a streak going, but for cheapskates like me, the discipline of "Never leave a table down, if you are ever up money at it." has kept me going strong in casinos for years. And living in Las Vegas, it's not like I can't find another game 5 miles down the street anytime I want. If I was a gambler, I'd have like to racked up the 50 points for the Metallic Card they were giving out on that day only. Took a few photos of the ad for it for the Card Collectors out there to know that there is something cool and perhaps a bit difficult to obtain, to be on the lookout for.
