It’s great to be back at Milwaukee Elks Lodge #46 at 5555 West Good Hope Rd. in Milwaukee where you can play Bingo every Sunday at Noon and every Tuesday and Thursday at 6:30 PM. That’s where we caught up with Nancy McDermott our Bingo Bugle Sweepstakes winner. Nancy is a substitute high school teacher who loves to play Bingo. She’s been playing Bingo for many years and tells us that she has been a faithful sweepstakes participant for 23 years. When her friend texted her a picture of the sweepstakes announcement on page 11 of the September issue of the Bingo Bugle she said, “Oh my God, I finally won. Everybody should keep playing, you could win like me”. We had the pleasure of a conversation with Milwaukee Elks Lodge #46 Exalted Ruler Reverend Janis K. Doleshal. She explained the mission of the Lodge and how serious their commitment is to the community. Of all Elks Lodges in the whole country, Elks #46 here in Milwaukee is among the top 5 contributors to their community. That is an extraordinary accomplishment. Reverend Doleshal, a retired pastor at Trinity United Church of Christ, who still serves as chaplain for the City of Delafield Police Department wants our readers to know about their outreach programs for military veterans and programs for homeless people in the community. On September 21st they participated in the Wisconsin Veterans Stand Down event at the Richards Street Armory. Elks

Good Hope Rd. in Milwaukee. You haven’t played Bingo until you’ve played at Elks Lodge #46. See their ad on Page 12 of this Bingo Bugle. #46 donated 450 shirts for the Veterans. Exalted Ruler Doleshal is instrumental in securing the grant money necessary to do the good works. She told us about the Christmas Party for the homeless families they provide along with presents for the children, gift cards for the adult and a hot meal at the Silver Spring Neighborhood Center. Thanksgiving means a food drive also partnering with the Silver Spring Center. Elks #46 Bingo is very popular. They have a beautiful Bingo Hall, great food and even Single Bingo Sheet Specials for selected games - Buy One - Get One. You can’t beat that. Their beautiful halls are available to rent for parties. Retirements, Weddings, Birthdays, Funerals and Quinceañeras have all been made extra special by the staff at Elks #46. They have rooms and banquet halls to accom-

modate events from 30 to 300 people. Amy, who gave us information on the hall facility, told us that they are totally handicapped accessible and their inhouse catering provides the freshest, most delicious food selections available. You can Call Amy to reserve a hall or get more information at (414)2484138 or check their website: lodgecatering.com Elks #46 is also focused of collecting school supplies for students. Alicia Herrerra-Long explained how they donate back packs filled with school supplies for children of foster families through SaintA and Silver Spring Neighborhood Center. So, let’s recap. Elks Lodge #46 runs top notch Bingo, has a laser focus to help the community including veterans, homeless neighbors and students. They have beautiful halls to rent. A wonderful place.

perfectly fine. It has been a few months now, I’m playing quicker and better now, I’ve figured out how to use the monitor to keep pace, and now I want to try more books again. From what I’ve said in this email, do you think I’m ready or am I pushing my luck? Is there anything about playing that it sounds like I’m missing or any advice you have for someone like me who is trying to play more cards? Thank you. Evie E., Florida

Is it Time to Turn Pro Player Asks Dear Aunt Bingo: Is there any hard and fast rule on how many books of Bingo sheets are safe to play, and the best way to play them? I’m medium-new to Bingo and up to now have almost always only played one book per evening. As I’ve played, I’ve begun to admire those players who are managing three, four, five and even six books in a session. I’ve seen that different players have different techniques: * Some sweep from the top down each column using their dauber as a guide; * Some go down the first column then up the next in a snake pattern; * Some use both hands and wave across the sheets like a magician doing a trick; * And I’m sure there are other techniques as well that I haven’t noticed yet. When I first began playing Bingo, I played just one book (9 cards per page) except for one time when I got bold and decided that I’d have better luck with more cards and purchased two books (18 cards per page). BIG mistake! I had a terrible time keeping up and got very anxious and broke out in a sweat! I’m sure I missed numbers and probably lost a jackpot. After that experience I went back to one book, which has been



Dear Evie: From what you’ve written it certainly sounds like you are ready to play more books, but only you can know that for sure. Your experience of playing too many books too soon is a common one: Folks new to Bingo see advanced players daubing away at rows of Bingo cards covering half the table and can’t help but want to emulate them. They forget that these “pros” have been playing for years, likely decades, and long ago learned how to keep track of dozens of cards at a time. And it takes time. One safe way to play more cards is through a handheld electronic device, available at many Bingo halls. Your cards are loaded into it and the machine tracks and marks them for you while you watch. Handhelds can be fun and give you a lot more control of your game but create a very different feel to the whole Bingo-playing experience when compared with paper Bingo and daubing. Your best bet now, in my opinion, is to bite the bullet, take the plunge, and take another stab at playing multiple books. You’ll know within minutes if it’s still too much for you. But I’m betting my favorite glitter dauber you’ll be fine. —Aunt Bingo Share your views! Write to Aunt Bingo c/o the Bingo Bugle, P.O. Box 527, Vashon, WA 98070, or email her at STENGL456@aol. com.

Burn Pits and Other Airborne Hazards Were you deployed in Desert Storm and Desert Shield to a location where there were airborne environmental contaminants, such as burn pit smoke, sand, dust and particles, and oil-well fire smoke? Do you suffer from any breathing problems that haven’t been diagnosed? Have you signed up for the Airborne Hazards and Open Burn Pit Registry? That registry is to help the Department of Veterans Affairs (and you) be aware of health conditions that might be related to those burn pits and other airborne hazards. As a first step, go online to the VA.gov website and search for Airborne Hazards and Open Burn Pit Registry. You’ll see the list of countries, such as Iraq and Afghanistan, where service personnel were deployed. If you served on or after Aug. 2, 1990



The Hustle (PG-13) — In this remake of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels,” Josephine Chesterfield (Anne Hathaway) is an elegant and refined beauty who preys on slick, wealthy men. Penny Rust (Rebel Wilson) is a fly-by-the-seat-of-herpants catfisher who dupes lowbrow guys out of fistfuls of bucks. Both con women set up residence in the lovely and fictional French town of Beaumont-sur-Mer, but two hustlers in one town is one too many. Unable to share the wealth of deserving suckers, they make a deal: Con the ultimate mark — app developer Thomas Westerburg (Alex Sharp) — and the loser has to leave town. There are some laughs for sure, but most of it tries way too hard to be clever or funny and ends up being neither. A Dog’s Journey (G) — If something about this seems super familiar, you’re right. It’s a sequel to A Dog’s Purpose, and some of the players are the same. Josh Gad returns to voice Bailey the dog, who we follow as he hurtles through time, embodying different puppers along the way. Bailey starts out returned to her boy,

in any of the listed countries, or in Afghanistan or Djibouti on or after Sept. 11, 2001, you may be eligible. If so, and if you sign up on the registry, you will get a free medical workup. So far, nearly 180,000 veterans have enrolled. Even if you have no physical symptoms, sign up anyway. If you’re already signed up with VA health care, ask your primary-care provider to schedule an evaluation or call the environmental health coordinator at the closest VA facility. If you enroll in the registry and it says you’re not eligible, work to have it corrected, as some records might be missing or inaccurate. Request an eligibility review. If you have symptoms that medical providers haven’t been able to diagnose, push for your in-person, multiple-day specialty exam at the War Related Illness and Injury Study Center in New Jersey. The VA recently opened the Airborne Hazards and Burn Pits Center of Excellence there to do research into these health issues. Ethan (Dennis Quaid), but now watching over a new little kid: Ethan’s granddaughter CJ. When CJ’s mother takes her away from the farm, Bailey journeys again through lifetimes to find his girl and watch over her. If you cried at the first one, you’ll cry at this one, too. It’s simplistic but still sweet, and watchable by any age group. Brightburn (R) — Here’s an interesting take on the superhero genre: a horror story. A baby boy falls to Earth inside a downed spaceship, landing on a farm in Kansas. A couple, Tori (Elizabeth Banks) and Kyle (David Denman), take in the boy they name Brandon (Jackson Dunn) and raise him as their own. They hide the ship in the barn. As the boy approaches puberty, he begins to come into his innate powers and sets off on a rampage worthy of a 12-year-old antihero, all the while egged on by the hidden spaceship’s murderous message. The Tomorrow Man (PG-13) — Two eccentrics find love in the grocery aisle in a freshman effort by writer/director Noble Jones. John Lithgow is Ed, a doomsdayprepping, check-writing, cablenews watching, chatboard-loving retiree whose internet handle is “Captain Reality.” He’s a little delusional and a little sad. Enter Ronnie (Blythe Danner), a peculiar and spacey hoarder who is a vision in flowy skirts and baggy sweaters. Ed discovers Ronnie in the local grocers buying tuna cans and batteries. Must be a match, eh? The pair interact and showcase their numerous oddball tics and eccentricities.


Black Cat Specials are Especially Fun Our small town really goes for Halloween in a big way. I begin to get excited as soon as the giant spider appears atop the realty company. This year the theme is black cats and soon I see them peeking out from between buildings or standing alone on Main Street. There was one I particularly liked, made of plywood, it peeked out from between two stores a little more each day until by Halloween it stuck far out into the sidewalk. There were pumpkins everywhere, some with black cats sitting on top of them, some carved into ugly faces. The corner restaurant had many little pumpkins sitting on all four window-ledges. We had invited one of our favorite couples, Merle and Pearl to join us for Bingo and it was good I had made reservations


OCTOBER 2019 as the place was packed with merrymakers. One wicked old witch sat by the front door and grudgingly passed out candy to anyone brave enough to ask for it. Merle asked several times until the witch said, “No more for you, Buster.” “That’s my brother,” Merle said, good-naturedly. “I’m Fester.” We all laughed appreciatively. The games were no different than usual until we got to the “Black Cat Specials,” which were very different indeed. The first was a cat’s tail that wound around the card using the third B, the second and fourth I’s, the first and fifth N’s, the second and fourth G’s and the third O. I made tiny little daubs on my cards so I wouldn’t get mixed up and then had a fine time playing the game. Pearl had not thought to mark her card and so was mixed up the entire game. Merle won that one though I could not figure out how. I think his mind just works funny. The next Black Cat Special was “Ears,” and it was a fun one. It was the second B, the first I, the second N, the first G, and the second O. They did look like cat ears and again I made tiny little daubs on the numbers I needed. It did, indeed help me as I won! But I had to share with two other winners, which was all right as it made me a winner! Merle decided to get crazy before the next game. “I get bored just playing it straight,” he said and turned his card upside down to play. “You’ll never get it that way,” warned Kate.

But he was determined and seemed to be doing well. He won the on-the-way game and was on for the final blackout, but someone else beat him to the win. “I liked playing tonight,” he said. “It’s a little different playing the Black Cat specials. Now I would like to take us all out for dinner with my winnings.” We protested but to no avail. Merle was on a roll. We chose the corner restaurant and when we walked in, bells sounded loudly, a whistle blew and streamers appeared. “You are our five hundredth customer of the day,” announced the manager. “And I am happy to tell you, your meals are on the house. I hope you are really hungry.”

Everybody’s On Call I have a little jitterbug cell phone. It makes phone calls and lets people call me. It takes messages, and lets me know if I’ve missed a call. It’s a cute little gadget, but I don’t display it much. It even takes pictures, but I don’t use that feature. I seem to have outlived all my friends who would give a hoot about seeing pics of my cats or my grandkids. In fact, I am having a hard time giving away my 89-year’s supply of family photos.

And vases. And other treasures. I don’t text. I don’t answer texts. I would hate to imply to my friends that the politician texting me is more important to me than the one who is visiting with me right now. My friend Marge has the best phone. It calls her dogs, scares her cats off the dinner table, and starts her morning coffee. It lets her know if anyone was in her house while she was away. I remember a time not so long ago when six or eight people had cell phones. They set them out with their magic elephants, trolls and other idols for good luck. The announcer ordered the phones turned off and threatened to evict any player who didn’t obey—one guy left in a huff, but finally came back and apologized. The craze grew into an absolute modern day necessity. How else could we order a soda from the kitchen or a pizza from Dominoes? How would we check in on the babysitter? I wonder what would happen if they ordered all cell phones turned off at the start of Bingo today. I’m afraid the workers would get mighty lonely.

Waxing and Waning by: Charlene James-Duguid

Amissville, Virginia 2/2018

If I were a moon, any one of them, I’d be distressed At all this talk about waxing and waning. First off because I don’t know what they mean. Those dictionary! I’m always the same Never smaller or larger. Except after the holidays when I should try to Lose a few tons, Clean out my craters. But those humans, their perspective is wrong. From where they stand earthbound and all This Dark Age idea speaks of their superstition Not my bulk. I can live with unfounded folly And the humor of all that. But one thing I do know for sure, I am a reason for being, destined. When sad angels die They need a place to go, A reward for bearing and harboring, Protecting human kind from woe. Their choices are endless Seasides, mountaintops, sandy expanses, Yet in wild chorus, and unending Hallelujah They come to one of me. I greet they joyfully, we sing together For without me, they’d have no home. Without them I’d wane away.

All in the Family Hi Guy, I am a HUGE Bingo fan, to a big degree because I come from a “Bingo family.” My grandmother played Bingo as far back as I can remember, and both my Mom and Dad would often go with her to play and would just as often go on their own. As a treat, Gran used to sometimes take the grandkids (there were five of us total), the rule being that she would only take two of us at a time. Boy, I remember the battles that would start over whose turn it was to go. But Gran wised up quickly and started keeping a booklet in her bag with a chart that listed which kids’ turn it was. No more battles, but a lot of whining when it wasn’t your turn. She was very good at making a trip to Bingo an event. Sometimes we would stop at the five & dime

beforehand, where we were each handed 10 cents to splurge on whatever we wanted. Other times we would stop for ice cream or even a whole dinner after Bingo, depending on how lucky we’d been at the games. Bingo was held in the church basement, so a trip upstairs for prayers before the games was mandatory. I assumed that Gran prayed that she would win, but church lady that she was, looking back I think she would have considered that greedy and sinful. Needless to say, I always prayed for a jackpot. Trips to Bingo with my grandmother were great, but even better when my parents went as well. This happened maybe twice a year. In this case, usually all five kids were allowed to go and the outing consisted of the five & dime, church, Bingo, and dinner out. We actually dressed up for the occasion. It was pretty awesome. It’s a real shame that Bingo is no longer the family event it was once upon a time. I still see couples, an occasional pair of siblings, and small groups of friends together, but rarely if ever do you see multigenerational gatherings with grandparents, parents and kids. I think it is this way for two reasons—many kids don’t really enjoy games like Bingo since their lives have gotten so “digital;” and

Boy, I remember the battles that would start over whose turn it was to go.


because some Bingo halls have actually banned kids from playing, saying it is gambling and could harm them. I’m not writing to debate any of this. I just think it’s sad that even if I wanted to, I couldn’t invite my kids and grandkids to certain Bingos because it would be breaking the law. Plus, it would be too much work to get them to put down their smart phones long enough to play. Randy C., Oregon Hi Randy, Thanks for sharing your reminiscence. It’s fun to recall the good ol’ days before rules and regs started spoiling everything. But keep in mind…those were also the days before seatbelts, cigarette health warnings, leadfree gasoline and bicycle helmets. In that spirit, I wouldn’t be too quick to criticize organizers that choose not to allow children in Bingo halls. They’re just doing their part in looking out for our kids. If you disagree, luckily for you there are many Bingo halls without age restrictions, and plenty of other multi-generational activities families can turn to and get their kids to put down those damn phones. —Guy Hey guys!

Dealer Tips I receive many questions from blackjack players; some involve interactions with blackjack dealers. Here are a few of them that you might find interesting and educational. Should you tip a blackjack dealer, and if so, how much? There isn’t any rule that says you must tip a blackjack dealer, just like there are no rules that say you must tip a waiter or taxi driver. However, let’s be realistic— we all know that many hardworking folks who work in the service industry have a low base salary and that they depend upon tips from customers to make ends meet. When I go to a restaurant, whether I tip my server and how much depends upon the service I get. It should be the same for blackjack dealers. Unfortunately, I’ve run into some surly blackjack dealers over my 40-year playing career. You know the type…gruff, disagreeable, irritable, grumpy, unhelpful, never smiling, and making you feel uncomfortable when you play. My tip for them is nada. I also tell them point blank that they ought to find another job because they are not very good at the job they are doing (if they ask why, then I tell them specifically what they are doing wrong and how they should be doing their job). If a dealer is extremely obnoxious (I’ve actually had one call me an asshole for not leaving a tip), then I will seek out the pit boss and tell him about the discourteous dealer. On the other hand, if a dealer has been friendly, courteous, and helpful, I will


OCTOBER 2019 leave a tip. How much? Because I play with an advantage, I know how much my theoretical hourly profit is and I usually tip no more than 25% of this. (I also wait until the count is in my favor before making a bet for the dealer.) If you are a basic strategy player and you want to tip a friendly dealer, my recommendation is to tip a few dollars if you are a $5 or $10 bettor, and tip $5 if you are a $25 bettor. (See next question.) Does it make a difference how you tip the dealer? I’m asking because sometimes I see players make a tip for the dealer on their hand while others just leave some chips for the dealer after they are done playing. I think it’s important that you let the dealer know early in your session that if they are friendly and helpful that you will be tipping them. Therefore, if they are friendly from the get go, I’d make a bet for them on your hand (now they know that if they continue the behavior you expect, they will probably be rewarded with more tips). However, I don’t recommend that you place the chip(s) you want to bet for the dealer on the outside of your betting spot (most players do this). Instead, you should place the chip(s) you want to bet for the dealer on top of your chips and inside the betting circle. The reason is if you place the chip(s) outside of the betting circle, you have no control over them. If the hand wins, the dealer will keep the chip(s) you bet for them plus the corresponding winning chips. If you place the chip(s) on top of your chips inside the betting circle, you still own them, meaning the dealer only gets to keep the winning chip(s) or whatever you choose to give to them. Usually, I let the chip(s) that I bet for the dealer ride on the next hand. If I win a few hands in a row, it gives the perception that I’m a big tipper. In addition, by placing the chip(s) you bet for the dealer on top of your wageredchip(s), the additional amount will count toward your rating. “The dealer made a dealing mistake, which caused me to lose. Her supervisor wouldn’t correct the mistake. I felt cheated and I’ll never play at that casino again.” Normally, if a dealer makes an error in dealing the cards or in

a payoff, they are supposed to bring it to the attention of their supervisor. The floor supervisor has the responsibility to correct the mistake. In most cases, the supervisor will give the benefit to the players because they want to maintain them as customers. However, if you believe that the supervisor hasn’t corrected the mistake to your satisfaction, you should tell the supervisor that you would like to speak to the pit (or shift) boss. I would plead your case at this level, including asking the pit or shift supervisors to review the tapes of the table so they can see the mistake made by the dealer.

What's News in Nevada . . . RETRO HOTEL OPENS IN OLD VEGAS The Apache at Binion’s is now open. And, according to local media, one of the first guests to check in was the granddaughter of the man who built the original hotel. Gina Silvagni Perry—who was 4 years old when her grandfather P.O. Silvagni died in 1958—said she was looking forward to her stay at the Apache, which Benny Binion took over in 1951 along with the Eldorado Club and turned into the Horseshoe. By the way, many say that the hotel is haunted and that doors open and close for no reason. CEO REMAINS OPTMISTIC Local media in Las Vegas recently profiled Dan Lee, the CEO of Full House Resorts. Although four of his five properties saw big downturns during the past year, Lee remains optimistic. He says he continues to explore expansion opportunities as legalized sports betting continues to spread across the nation. By the way, the Full House properties are spaced out over the country: Two in Northern Nevada, one in Colorado, one in Mississippi and another in Indiana. CASINO POWER OUTAGE Although it didn’t last very long, a power failure at the Rampart Casino in the posh northwest Las Vegas suburb of Summerlin recently caused some real headaches. According to the facility, the casino had to be

temporarily closed down for the better part of the morning. The casino, via its Twitter account, noted that the outage hit at midmorning. The outage caused no damage to equipment. CAESARS’ SCRUTINIZES FEES The CEO of Caesars Entertainment, Tony Rodio, says that his company may need to rethink resort fees. He told company officials they needed to be cautious about the use of resort fees. Recently, MGM Resorts International announced a $6 resort fee hike to $45 a night at the Aria, Vdara and Bellagio. Rodio remarked that it is possible to create unrealistic resort fees. Editor’s Tip: There are ways to avoid resort fees, find more information online at: https:// www.frommers.com/tips/hotelnews/how-to-get-out-of-payinga-hotels-resort-feeit-can-bedone ANOTHER BIG ROYAL REPORTED According to local media, the most recent Millionaire Progressive winner hit the “Big One” at the Palazzo in Vegas. The player won just over a million dollars playing Three Card Poker. The win marks the sixth time the Millionaire Progressive has been hit during the past year. It was first introduced at the Las Vegas Sands. To be eligible for the jackpot, a player has to make a five-dollar side bet. To win, the player must be dealt a natural royal flush.


Me as a Tree? I don’t really look forward to Halloween as much as November 1st. November 1st should be named Discount Candy Day. –Anonymous I love the autumn season, but not so much the month of October. Egads, what am I saying? When my family reads this column, I know I’ll be on the receiving end of irate objections and righteous indignation for sure. That’s because our two daughters and granddaughter were all born this month; plus, Robert and I were married in October. I read that those born in October live longer and have fewer incidents of cardiovascular disease. And, if they wear their opal birthstone, they will always be lucky in life. I tell the daughters and granddaughter that must be true as they couldn’t get any luckier than having Robert and I as parents. My problem with October is Halloween/Trick or Treat. As a kid, Halloween was great fun and we dressed up as Indians, fat farmers, witches, and all manner of ghosts and goblins. Treats were plentiful; some homemade and delicious like popcorn balls and candy apples. Not once did we consider that the treats might contain needles or other dangerous items. Tricks were mostly innocent like soaping windows or throwing toilet paper into trees; although our parents would recount tipping outhouses

and putting what they shouldn’t have in bags on porches. But those days are gone and political correctness has taken the fun out of dressing up; candy has to be x-rayed to make sure it’s safe to eat. We ran around after dark unescorted with nary a worry; that is not the case today. What does makes me happy about October, other than family birthdays, is my wedding to Robert on a fall afternoon forty-two years ago. The leaves were falling around us as we said our vows on a hillside at my parents’ farm. And that reminds me of an old autumn superstition. According to folklore, catching autumn leaves as they fall will bring good luck. Every leaf caught means a lucky month lies ahead. My advice is head to the woods immediately. Hurry, scurry, scramble and catch bundles of those colorful suckers; then believe you will win at every gambling endeavor in which you indulge. I’m thinking about gluing leaves on my chunky round body before heading to bingo. Now, don’t judge me. If leaves will bring good luck and break my losing streak, I’m going for it. If my local bingo has a costume contest, I could go as a tree. Can’t you picture me with acorns in my hair and a fake bird attached to my arm—maybe a cuckoo bird? Finally, to be honest, I admit that there are two other October activities that I enjoy. Those are sipping hot buttered rum cider and eating pumpkin pie while watching squirrels scamper up and down the chunky round tree outside my living room window. Hm-m-m. Maybe I better rethink dressing up as a tree. The thought of a squirrel scampering up my chunky round body does not amuse me. Until next month, may Lady Luck blow you kisses as you dance out the door with dollars. Win big. You can contact me by emailing homemailbox@roadrunner.com. If you do, maybe I will send you a picture of me dressed as a tree with a squirrel on my head. Yeah. That will never happen.
