I need a “Get Out Of Jail Free” Monopoly playing card.

Gullible replied..

Spam comments?!!! Absolutely. Trollers, scam artists, sneaky advertisers, identity thieves and their ilk. You can recognize them in an instant. They are unduly praiseful of the post, want to be your friend. Ask Andre what happens next.

You will notice that while heaping the praise on you, the commenter never, ever cites one specific thing in your post. Not one. The comments are all generic to a fault.

Robert replied..

That stuff is excessively effusive. It is thus recognizable in an instant, but so ego stroking.

IF any of you want to go back to yesterday’s Post and read all of the comments just click onto the below link.


I call this “Very sophisticated SPAM” looking to possibly SCAM me IF I were to reply and “engage with them”.

Thanks so very VERY much Gullible and Robert for your interest and for “educating me” on sophisticated SPAM !

Slot Machines

Today, Monday, February 26th, as we do each and every Monday that I am here in Lake Havasu City, I will go with my neighbor Eddie, to “play the slot machines” at our local Havasu Landing Casino.

Below you will see “About as good as it gets playing slot machines”. 

You simply are seldom going to “win” or even to do this well.

I played $20 at 50 cents a spin so I played 40 games.

I bet $20 and took home $17.04.

Rocky paid me $13.90 and Wonder Woman paid me $3.14.

So a nice boat ride, on a nice day, hanging out with a great buddy, cost $2.96.

My 6 Canes

They wanted me to take their photo.

My sit down cane is great when I am at a car show and walking a lot or in the Post Office in a long LONG line. I merely “have a seat” and relax.

Huh Captain?? What’s with the canes??

Yesterday’s Newspaper. No one goes back to re-read yesterday’s newspaper. I added these cane photos to our FEB 24th Post.

Cap and Taa Daa My Ever Patient Patti


Last night, celebrating her 24th Sober Anniversary, in front of a packed house at our Saturday night Birthday Speaker Meeting, Patti gave the best talk I have ever heard her give.

I just wrote a comment on Chapter 34 of Gullible’s latest (perhaps the last Chapter??) 2023 Brazil Journals Post and used the term “Comfortably Numb” to describe how she must have felt navigating her trip back to the United States from Brazil. The below link will take you to her Post.


What an adventure your trip to Brazil was Gullible. Thanks so very much for sharing it with us.

Not even I, the so called “Owner” of this website knows “what is going on at all times with my website here”.

Beginning way back on Day One (August the 16th, 2011) of this website, my webmaster Andrej installed a Spam Protection Plugin here on dotnet called Akismet.


Now SPAM I understand. Real SPAM is obvious. OK?

To date, Akismet has intercepted (get this) 187,082 SPAM comments!

What I don’t understand is why Akismet considered the below actual comments to be SPAM.

Do any of the above comments seem to you like they are “Bothersome SPAM”?

I’ll have to ask Andrej.

This I will say : I do not know any of the above contributors. Sometimes it is all I can do to keep up with the comments from you who I know personally. There is no way I could answer the above comments because many might get into a back-and-forth dialogue with me.
