Poker run with a happy ending and shipping help request

Since tacoboy was doing last night’s poker run that was my Saturday option for a date night. I could not believe how packed it was when I turned up at Roadkill bar, this was the biggest one yet with 52 poker players.

I was not too hopeful after my first card 7 clubs and definitely thinking no one was going to be calling fix for me winning. At Average Joe’s and Lola’s Pub I got 2 aces, my luck was improving for sure and in more ways than one. I ended up sitting with Cindy chatting in in her cart outside of Lola’s and decided to ride with her and Andy to Wayo’s instead of with Paul, Eric and Denise. Turns out they got a flat tire on the way and had to leave the cart by Ritchie’s supermarket. Thankfully my Gringo burger was still there on our way back to Pedro’s Pizza.

Unfortunately at the end of the night when the flop was drawn my aces did not do me any good. 2 people did get a happy ending though, for the first time ever it was a split pot. Even though I did not win the pot, I figured there was no reason I could not make my own happy ending so I consoled myself with a large thin crust white pizza with green pepper and bacon.

When I was out for my walk today Danyelle invited me into AJ’s for a lemonade, I found  that it s actually ended up being a 3 way split in the end. Danyelle and Mike  decided to make a side bet with their friends half way through the poker run. They agreed that if either couple won they would split the winnings and their friends won.

I have another call for help from Joanne to get school supplies down here that were collected by Direct Abundance. She also included an update of all the great work they are doing. If you can help get school supplies to Belize please make contact. Direct Abundance website, Direct Abundance facebook page.

Dear Laurie;

Thank you so much for arranging shipping last month to bring school supplies from Direct Abundance to Holy Cross Anglican School.  We are again seeking your assistance.  We have another shipment of supplies that can be shipped, but will require someone traveling from Ohio, Erie Buffalo, or Pennsylvania to bring them down.  We are hopeful that this will be an ongoing project, so if you are able to find a connection for us every 3 – 4 months that would be wonderful!

Some news about Direct Abundance.  We are taking our first mission group down to St Anns Bay, Jamaica in just 15 days.  We will be planting a garden, doing eye examinations, teaching Daily Vacation Bible School, and of course…. starting the construction of a new classroom.  The ground was broken on Monday of this week.  We at Direct Abundance are excited about the progress we are making and how quickly things are coming together.  There really is DIRECT ABUNDANCE when you have a little faith.

Joanne O’Brien
