GeneralJust Had Dinner With Our Own Piebald Consultant And Family PinmemberRoger Wright24-May-14 21:52 
Beware. This crafty fellow is even more intelligent and wise than his frequent posts here would lead you to believe. Apparently he's completely underestimated the threat I present to any visitors and actually exposed his beautiful and bright wife to my insidious influence; even worse, he allowed his young son to sit in my presence throughout our dinner. The young man was well protected from my evil aura, I think, as he expressed his extreme boredom several times, albeit most politely, and was not overwhelmed by my awesome presence. I think I may have converted him to a new, rather quaint religion while his parents were revisiting the buffet, but I won't know for sure until the next full moon and the usual parental sacrifices the Dark Lord requires of His young converts.
 
Dinner was excellent, with Prime Rib being featured on my plate, accompanied by the Tropicana's amazingly delicious horseradish, which compares favorably with thermite on the heat index. IMHO, the Tropicana Express (nee Ramada Express) has the finest buffet along the river this year. The casinos are always in flux in their respective dining experiences, so that can change anytime, but for the past several years, Tropicana has never failed to please. Unfortunately, tonight their poker machines fell short of expectations, much to my surprise. Most nights when I stop by, within an hour or two, I find 4 Aces on my screen for a handy payout that leaves me well ahead of the house. But tonight it wasn't to be. Alas, I dropped a bit, hit a lesser 4-of-a-kind, was up a bit, then fell again without ever seeing my faithful 4 Aces all night. Oh well... Sigh | :sigh:
 
All in all, it was a delightful night, and I much enjoyed meeting our esteemed colleague and his delightful family. I look forward to doing so again one day! Big Grin | :-D
Will Rogers never met me.
