Liz Colantuono, 69, of Tamarac, Florida is passionate about playing Bingo, rarely letting a week go by without making it to a hall at least two or three times. She is equally fond of cruise travel, having been on more than thirty vacations-at-sea to date. Not surprisingly, when Liz heard last year about the World Championship

The Game that Gives Back Dear Aunt Bingo: It had been months and months since I last won a Bingo, and as you can guess I was pretty unhappy about it. The most recent time I went to Bingo I stood at the back door of my house with my car keys in my hand and for at least 10 minutes debated with myself about whether I should even go. In the end I decided to go, figuring my luck would have to change soon…maybe tonight. But of course, when I got there, I was already cranky, my cards stunk, and everyone around me seemed to be hitting Bingo in 10 numbers or less. It felt like such a huge waste of time and money. During the first break, the caller alerted the players that there was going to be some sort of an announcement and asked if all of us could return to our seats as soon as possible. After a few more minutes everybody had settled down and the caller asked if the Bingo director, his deputies and the other volunteers would gather by the caller platform. After all the workers were there, the caller stepped down from the platform and stood by a table to the side. Sitting at the table I could see a group I hadn’t noticed until now, made up of several young people and some adults I assumed were their parents. The caller introduced them as representatives from a civic group

BINGO BUGLE PAGE 3

JULY 2020 that received funding through the money raised at Bingo. He went on to name a dozen or so other organizations that also received funding from Bingo and reminded everyone in the hall that this is why his organization sponsors the games. After that, the caller handed the mike to a girl at the table, and she stood up and gave a short, thoughtful speech thanking the folks running the Bingo for their support. She then presented the Bingo director with a plaque and the players gave the director, caller and workers a round of applause. After that, the director took the microphone and thanked the girl, then turned to the players and thanked all of us for spending the dollars which they used to fund so many groups in need. It was a very nice little event that only took a few minutes, but I’m sure did a lot of good for the players and the volunteers in the hall. Like me, there were surely plenty of grumpy people there that night who were unhappy with their lack of winnings. But seeing that young girl representing her organization and expressing appreciation for the Bingo hall’s— and our—support did so much to boost our spirits and remind us all what charity Bingo is for. E.G., Texas Dear E.G.: Every so often I use this column to remind players that the dollars they spend at charity Bingo go to help individuals and groups that need all the support they can get. Of course, it stings to see the stranger two tables away walk away with the biggest jackpot of the night…again. Hopefully, your reminder will take a little of that sting away and help players remember the good that is being done by charity Bingos nationwide. —Aunt Bingo Share your views!

VA’s Emergency Preparedness The Department of Veterans Affairs has a disaster preparedness team called the Disaster Emergency Medical Personnel System (DEMPS). Part of DEMPS is the National Emergency Medical Response Teams: medical and nonmedical volunteers on call for two months at a time who are able to deploy within 48 hours. Whether it’s a flood, earthquake or other natural disaster, once a Presidential Declaration is issued the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) or the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) jump in. That’s when the VA’s DEMPS programs can be activated. The VA isn’t just helping veterans during this coronavirus crisis. Per its fourth mission (to support the country in emergencies), the VA started up its 3D printing network to test designs of medical

equipment. Along with the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), it’s creating 3D prototypes of face shields, masks and ventilators. Additionally, at the request of FEMA, the VA has made 1,500 beds available across the country for nonveterans who need acute and intensive care. In some places it’s sent additional medical staff to state veterans homes, given clinical support to the homeless, loaned a pharmacy trailer to a medical center and built a hospital with 1,000 beds. As of this writing, DEMPS has moved into Louisiana to help with the explosion of coronavirus cases, and the VA is seeking medical professionals to help with intensive care units as well as biomedical technicians with ventilator experience. If you have a nonessential medical need, call your VA facility and talk to them. You might decide to postpone your visit for a little while. Or perhaps you can be seen via Telehealth, either on your tablet or computer. for an interview. The pair have an instant chemistry, and as both Mae and Michael explore her mother’s life and motivations, they may end up reliving and hopefully benefiting from the regrets of the past.

PICKS OF MONTH

THE

Birds of Prey (R) — Margot Robbie is at her overly bright, psychotic best as Harley Quinn, notorious lunatic and now ex-girlfriend of The Joker. A diamond belonging to the narcissistic crime lord Roman (Black Mask, played by Ewan McGregor) disappears thanks to a young girl named Cass, and she is marked for death. So Harley turns a tear of self-destruction into a riot of self-discovery and female empowerment, teaming with a mafia don’s daughter (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) out for revenge with her crossbow, a sultry siren (Jurnee Smollett-Bell) who uses her voice as a weapon, and a tough Gotham cop (Rosie Perez). The girl gang takes up arms in a very violent defense. The Photograph (PG-13) — A steamy love story erupts when Mae (Issa Rae) discovers a letter and photograph shortly after her mother’s death. Her mother, Christina (played in flashback by Chante Adams) — a famous photographer — is the subject of an article by up and coming journalist Michael (LaKeith Stanfield), who approaches Mae

Call of the Wild (PG) — It’s the classic Jack London tale of a family dog who is spirited away to the edge of the world and forced to fight to survive, updated with CGI and featuring Harrison Ford as a grizzled mountain man. Buck — a St. Bernard-collie mix — lives a spoiled life in California when he is stolen and sold as a sled dog in the Yukon territory. As he serves a series of masters, he grows and changes, skirting the line between civilized and feral. He’s rescued by John Thornton (Ford) and the pair cross into uncharted territory in an attempt to answer the call of the wild. Fantasy Island (PG-13) — Win a trip, visit an island and make a wish! That’s the reality of Gwen (Maggie Q), Melanie (Lucy Hale), Patrick (Austin Stowell) and stepbrothers J.D. and Brax (J.D. Hansen and Jimmy O. Yang). Their fantasies seem innocuous enough — having it all, serving in wartime, revenge on a bully, the man of your dreams — and Mr. Roark (Michael Pena) is on staff to facilitate the deliverance of these fantasies. But they don’t have the wholesome endings found in the 1970s TV version. Yes, guests of this specialized resort are granted the fulfillment of a wish, but unsurprisingly end up with wisher’s remorse in this horrorfable by Blumhouse, meant as a prequel to the TV version.

A Tale of Long Odds and Luck My longtime friend, Bonnie, and I had planned a “Casino Day” starting with a delicious brunch to be followed by a whole afternoon of Bingo. She picked me up and we were both hungry by the time we got to the casino. I love their brunches even though I generally overeat. Today they had shrimp in a special sauce that I had trouble stopping even after my tummy said, “No more.” We waddled around the gift shops until time to set up for Bingo. It was then I noticed that the letters in Bonnie’s name spelled “Bingo” minus the G. I don’t know why this had never occurred to me before, but today it seemed to be a special omen. Consequently, I loaded up with extras and encouraged Bonnie to do the same. “They ought to let me play free,” commented Bonnie and I could see she had entered into what I privately thought to be myself to

WISCONSIN EDITION

JULY 2020 be the “day’s spirit, minus G.” I had a private giggle over that, but Bonnie caught it and asked me, “What’s funny?” “Oh, just the whole G business,” I said and with that we both began to giggle. We were laughing so much a floor worker came over to see what was up. I showed her Bonnie’s name with the absent G and she thought that was pretty funny also. Wouldn’t you know, the second game was the G row. “We are followed by good luck today,” said Bonnie. And sure enough, she won the game. I began to get very excited as there were some big payoffs coming. A man at our table won the next game which was four corners (no Gs). Our side of the room was heavily into winning, so I shared with a stranger our Bonnie// Bingo/good luck for the day story and he was much perked up by my revelation. Our table continued to be lucky until intermission when it seemed all the sand had run out of the hourglass. We tried to get it back. We chanted. We walked backwards around our chairs. We moaned about Gs. Nothing helped until we came to the very last game of the day. It was a diagonal followed by a blackout and Bonnie was determined to win one prize or the other. “I’ve just got to win this one,” she said earnestly. “My name won’t mean anything unless I do.” “Doesn’t it mean pretty or lovely or something like that?” I asked. “Oh, I guess so,” said Bonnie. “But today it had better mean

‘Winner.’” Someone won the diagonal pretty quickly and then Bonnie was on for the blackout. I get so excited when this happens that I can scarcely sit still enough to finish the game, but Bonnie did. She won the final blackout and was jumping up and down with excitement. “I won. I won. I won,” she kept saying even before her card was checked. She won $700 and we were both tearing up while she waited for the payoff. She got paid in fifties which she said was another good omen. “I think of them as my lucky bills,” she said. “Look, I carry a couple in my checkbook for emergencies.” And thus ended our legendary “Bonnie Day of Bingo” and we went home very contented.

BOB ON BINGO By Bob Whittmore

* If you have a stubborn stain on the driveway or garage floor, try oven cleaner. Spray the spot and cover it (to keep pets out) and then let it sit for several hours. Give it a good scrub and rinse with the hose. It might just do the trick! * “I have a tip for you. When pouring water in your coffee pot, use a 4-inch funnel by placing it in the tank. Helps from spilling water. Pour slowly!” — P.T. in Illinois * “Here’s a recipe tip from my brother’s man cave: Take a can of beer and mix it with a cup of barbecue sauce. Add a couple drops of hot sauce if you’re feeling spicy. Use the mix to marinate chicken thighs for several hours before slapping them on the grill. He says the beer helps the chicken absorb the flavor, and he must be right, because it’s so yummy.” — E.D. in Arkansas * Clean hairbrushes and combs by soaking them in a baking soda/ water solution. Put them bristles down in a large cup and add the solution. Don’t do this to wood handle brushes. * “Here’s a convenient way to measure oil and not have to wash an inconveniently shaped measuring cup: Label a glass jar with marks for common kitchen measurements: 1/4, 1/3, 1/2, 2/3, 3/4 and 1 cup. So easy.” — J.K. in Vermont

Happy Birthday, USA, and Welcome Back Q: I heard that they are bringing back the family-friendly reality show Wipeout. How are they going to do this with the pandemic? Do you know when episodes will air? — T.K. A: Yes, Wipeout will be back — someday. The hit show aired on ABC from 2008 to 2014 and was recently acquired by the TBS cable channel for a planned 20-episode run, but it hasn’t been filmed yet. The obstacle courses should be similar to the slippery ones that fans are familiar with, but TBS is adding some new challenges. Brett Weitz, general manager of TBS, said that casting the competitors will only be done “virtually” for now due to the pandemic. Applicants can check out www.wipeoutcasting.com for more information. Q: Is Westworld going to be back on HBO? I really hope it continues, but it doesn’t seem like many people talk about it anymore, so I wonder if it’s lost viewers. — P.B. A: The ratings must be good enough because the science-fiction Western has been given the green light for a fourth season. Evan Rachel Wood, Thandie Newton and Ed Harris star in the series, which had only eight episodes for its critically acclaimed third season but drew an impressive 9 million viewers.

I can’t think of a better way to celebrate the 244th birthday of this great nation this month than to have July coincide with a return to the game we all love best. To quote an author whose name I can’t recall at the moment: “These are trying times.” I am not old enough to remember the Second World War, but I have watched enough documentaries to know that it was a “testing time.” Americans found everything in short supply…from some foods to tires to gasoline. But, the one thing that was NOT in short supply, was courage and unity. The past few months have not been easy for any of us. And, sadly, for some this has been a time of great loss. BUT…BOB IS BACK! I don’t know about you, but the first night I went to Bingo and found that my favorite neighborhood casino was closed, I felt horrible. Bingo is such an important part of my life that when I lost the freedom to play, I thought the world was coming to an end. But, all of that was temporary. You know, since some Bingo halls have been dark for a while,

this might be a perfect time to make a request of the people who make the rules in those facilities. The most common complaint I get centers around the fact that too many Bingo halls offer too many patterns and combinations in order to win. If you are a regular at that kind of Bingo hall, it is likely that you have gotten used to having a dozen ways to win at Bingo. But, if you are new at the hall, it’s a different story. Maggie M., from Rochester, Minnesota, wrote me some time ago at bobonbingo@earthlink. net: “Bob, you can’t believe what happened to me at a rural Bingo hall. I had never been there before and went with a friend who had heard about the place. It was clean and well lit. The employees were wonderful. The sound system was great. The prices were OK. But there was a problem. For most of the games, it was possible to achieve a Bingo by filling out one of more than a dozen patterns… Small Diamond, Big Diamond, Four Corners. Big Square, Small Square, etc. For heaven’s sake, what ever happened to SIMPLE, five-in-a-row Bingo? I have no idea if I had a Bingo, or not. I am not going back there.” Thanks, Maggie, it is a point I have been trying to make for a long time. We need to welcome NEWCOMERS to our halls so the game can survive. But, if we make the game too confusing to new people, they will never come back. More next month.

WISCONSIN EDITION

JULY 2020

The Phantom Kissers Hi Guy, We had some very awkward weirdness at Bingo this week, and not for the first time. Several of the workers—like the caller, the cashier, the manager and a couple of others—wear body mikes throughout the evening, which they use to make quick announcements to the players or ask each other questions or make quick comments to each other. It makes sense—the hall is pretty big

and the senior people can’t always get away from the spot where they are working so that they can chase down another worker and ask him or her a question. The way it works is that the person who needs to use the microphone flips a switch that turns it on, says whatever he or she needs to say, then turns it off again. It feels a little like being in a grocery store with people announcing today’s specials, but everyone is pretty much used to it. A few times it has been funny when one of the miked people forgot to turn off the mike after using it or turned it on accidentally. (This is a charity Bingo run by volunteers who don’t have a lot of experience with microphones.) One time we were sitting in the hall when suddenly over the system we all heard water trickling. You guessed it…one of the guys was peeing in the bathroom. Another time over the sound system we began to hear “chomp, chomp, chomp” like giant insects were eating the building. It turned

out to be a worker eating potato chips in one of the back rooms. There have been other small incidents off and on—people arguing, swearing, laughing and that sort of thing—that were picked up by a mike. But nothing like this week. This week it got sexy. We were in the hall waiting for the games to start when all of a sudden over the sound system you could hear what sounded like kissing, accompanied by a little moaning and one or two “mmmmmm’s.” Somebody was being naughty! The manager immediately jumped on the system and said: “Hey sweethearts, your microphone is on!” before bursting out laughing. The whole hall began to hoot and laugh and make fun of whoever it was. Obviously, after the manager’s comment the “show” ended. So far, no one has apparently owned up to being the phantom kissers, but there can’t be more than five or six microphones so I bet they know who it was.

GOODS & SERVICES

I did my best to I.D. any redfaced volunteers, but had zero luck. Charles V., New York Hi Charles, This feels a LOT like a made-up story, but I enjoyed it so much I’m going to run it anyway. If it’s true, I am absolutely astonished that the manager didn’t strip the other workers of their microphones immediately following the peeing incident. Certain kinds of technology simply do not belong in some people’s hands! —Guy Hey guys! (And gals!) Write to: Guy’s Turn c/o The Bingo Bugle, P.O.

Minding Your Gambling Manners Following is part three of the casino manners series; this month we’re focusing Craps (more to come for Roulette, Slots and Video Poker). As noted, even if you are a seasoned veteran, it won’t hurt to brush up on your casino manners to avoid a potentially embarrassing situation. Craps --Always buy-in to a craps game before the shooter gets the dice. Remember that the dealer cannot take any money directly from a player, so place your money on the layout and ask the dealer for chips. When you are ready to color up, wait for a pause in the action before you carefully stack your chips on the layout in front of you. --The number seven is an unmentionable number at the crap table so don’t even think about saying “it.” If you are a don’t bettor, never, ever cheer for the seven. If you are crazy enough to want to bet on the seven (it’s a prop bet with a very high casino edge), refer to it as ‘big red.” --When the shooter is ready to roll the dice, avoid leaning over the table or dangling your hands over the table area. If you do, the dice may hit your hand and veteran players believe this will result in bad luck. Likewise, do not throw money on the layout to buy-in or  talk to, touch, or jostle a shooter who is on a hot roll (again experienced players believe this will break his concentration and the hot roll will come to an end).

WISCONSIN EDITION

JULY 2020 --If you are shooting the dice, avoid hitting other player’s chips on the layout or the dealer stack of chips and make sure the dice hit the back wall. Don’t take a lot of time setting the dice before you toss them. If you want to set the dice, practice beforehand so that when the dice are given to you by the stickman you can quickly arrange them. Always keep the dice in full view of the dealers (i.e. never cup them or shake them below table level). If you toss the dice and one or both rebound off of the table, shout out “same dice” (again experienced players believe that if new dice are put into play bad things will happen). Also, if a shooter loses on a throw of the dice and you win, it’s rude to gloat or comment on how he/she should have bet. --Try to avoid muscling your way into a crowded table. It’s also not a good idea to elbow your way to the left side of the shooter (so you will get the next turn throwing the dice). --All wagers from the Come/ Don’t Come betting area toward the stickman and players are made by the player except the center proposition bets (that includes the come, don’t come, pass line, don’t pass, odds, field bet, and Big 6/8). If you want to bet on any of the point numbers, place your chip on the layout and ask the dealer to make those wagers for you (but be patient and wait your turn– dealers have a lot going on). --Always make your bets while the stickman has the dice in the center of the layout (not when he is pushing the dice to the shooter). If you want to make a proposition bet (wagers in the center of the layout), carefully toss your chips to the stickman with clear instructions on how much you want to bet and where (don’t haphazardly throw your chips in the center prop betting area where they can roll over the place, rather learn how to “spin” the chips on the layout so they won’t roll). If you are a don’t bettor, it’s best to position yourself next to either dealer so you can easily reach the don’t pass and don’t come betting areas (and remember never to root for the unmentionable number and never cheer when you win).

Celebrating Chocolate Exercise is a dirty word. Every time I hear it, I wash my mouth out with chocolate. –Charles M. Schulz

It’s July and time to celebrate Independence Day. Seems appropriate this year more than ever after long days of selfisolating in our homes. Red, White, and Boom, our annual fireworks with thousands in attendance, is canceled and there will be a televised four-day event looking back at 39 years of former fireworks and festivities on the 4th. Not quite the same which is the norm for our daily lives these days. Oh well. We have learned to adjust our definition of normal from day to day as need arises. Fun fact. It’s National AntiBoredom Month. How ironic, considering some of us have been bored beyond tears for the last several months. My husband, Robert, and I cleaned, organized, played cards, binge watched TV, and ate junk food with no remorse. As our girths expanded, our guilt lessened, and exercise receded to the back burner. That’s what happens when one is confined to home with no casinos or bingo for entertainment. Playing two handed canasta doesn’t’ cut it when you’re used to the singing of slot machines and the sight of bouncing bingo balls. The good news is that as I write this column in May, we had just received a text from our local bingo that it would be reopening soon; probably same time as casinos and hair salons. My hair

hasn’t been this long, shaggy, and unkempt since forever ago. I briefly considered taking a selfie every morning and posting it online to give everyone a good laugh. My better judgement kicked in when I realized that what others see, they can never un-see. My hideous hair would be forever enshrined on the pages of Facebook and haunt me for years to come. I must say though that my Robert became a good-looking devil with longer hair that was suddenly curly. Yet again, many men as they age look better and better while some women, such as myself, could use a time genie to turn back the clock a few years. Even though there’s no fireworks this year, there is something to celebrate come July 7th. It’s World Chocolate Day around the globe and a perfect excuse to indulge our chocolate cravings. I need to point out though that in the United States October 28 is recognized as National Chocolate Day. No problem because as Hillary Clinton once famously said, “What difference does it make?” I’ve decided to gorge on chocolate both days. Dark chocolate is good for my health and any kind of chocolate will cheer up this chocoholic as we all recover, endure, and learn new methods of coping with the Covid-19 virus. And speaking of chocolate, try this yummy recipe. Put a gob of peanut butter between two slices of banana, dip it in melting chocolate, and let it harden. Sweet deliciousness ensues. I have to confess though that I did end up with hardened chocolate on my hands at my first attempt to make these. But again, quoting Hillary, did it really matter that I ended up with chocolate hands? Not to me as I gleefully licked my chocolate coated fingers. Until next month, may Lady Luck blow you kisses as you dance out the door with your gambling dollars. Win big. Contact me at homemailbox@roadrunner.com to share your thoughts.
