restaurants each night. You also have plenty of entertainment options that can accommodate your needs. Plus, like any other traveler, you can benefit from unpacking suitcases once and sleeping in the same bed each night while visiting multiple destinations. These conveniences make cruising a popular way to vacation for travelers with disabilities and other health concerns.” This is what makes a vacation like the World Championship Bingo Tournament & Gaming Cruise the perfect choice for travelers who want to enjoy adventure and fun without those frustrating mobility roadblocks. The host ship for the 32nd Annual Bingo Tournament Cruise, Carnival Breeze, is dedicated to offering the finest cruising experience to its guests with special requirements.

Vacation travel can be difficult for people with limited mobility who rely on walkers, wheelchairs, mobility scooters and other support devices to get around. Choosing travel routes, hotels, restaurants and attractions for even the briefest of getaways can require considerable research to establish that individuals’ diverse mobility needs will be met. “Traveling with a disability can be challenging and stressful,” writes Barbara and Jim Twardowski, contributing writers for Cruise Critic (cruisecritic.com). “When you choose a cruise for your vacation, though, you can take some of the unwanted surprises out of the equation. “Once onboard, you know your cabin can be reached via elevator and you can dine in your choice of accessible

to a couple of smaller utility rooms at the back of the hall. The move didn’t help. Their social time is still noisy and distracting and players are mad. My plan now is to send you this letter, get it published, and be sure that the manager and workers see it. Thank you for the help. T.T., Arizona

Chit Chat Plan Dear Aunt Bingo: We are having an ongoing problem with noisy/chatty workers at the neighborhood Bingo I go to. This isn’t an overnight problem. Beginning maybe three months ago they had a changeover in the volunteer workers and I think we ended up with a bunch of sociable people who like being out of the house in the evening with their fellow volunteers, and don’t quite grasp that players appreciate and need a certain amount of quiet to focus on their Bingo playing. As I said, this didn’t start overnight. At first these workers reserved their socialness for the players and were friendly and chatty and helpful before the games, and then settled down quietly once the games started. But I guess what was really happening was that the workers were getting to know each other and becoming Bingo-workerbuddies. Quiet time turned into quiet chat time (no problem) then louder chat time (small problem) then louder chat time (problem) and finally chatting and laughing time (big problem). On the plus side, the new workers are doing a great job and really try to help the players and the manager. They also moved their festivities (I think at the manager’s request because players complained) from the Bingo room


JUNE 2020

Dear T.T.: This is a pretty elaborate scheme you’ve mapped out here: Write a letter to a national newspaper with a three-month lead time, hope the letter gets published and, when it does, casually leave copies of the newspaper—open to the page with your printed letter—at key places throughout the Bingo hall where the manager and workers will find it and read it. Well, you’ve succeeded with steps one and two … the Bingo Bugle has published the letter you wrote us. But the reason I’ve included it in this column is not to assist you in your caper, but to share it with any fellow Bingo players who might be experiencing a similar problem. Here’s an alternative. From your description, this sounds like a great hall with an upbeat group of new, dedicated volunteers. Why not treat them like the grownups they are and simply tell one or two of them that they are too noisy. I am positive they will listen and learn, tone down their conversations, or even take them further away… maybe even outside! Most people dislike confrontation and go to great lengths to avoid it—your letter being a perfect example. And sometimes that is the wisest course. But in this case, I think the direct route is best, and will help solve your problem in minutes instead of months. — Aunt Bingo Share your views! Write to Aunt Bingo c/o the Bingo Bugle, P.O.

Virtual VA Medical Visits The fight against this coronavirus has taken nearly all the country’s resources, as well as personal sacrifice. The Department of Veterans Affairs is on top of things, administering thousands of tests to veterans to prevent the transmission of the virus. The VA wants you to limit your exposure, especially when it involves going to a medical setting. If you’ve never used the telemedicine feature of VA care, become familiar with it now to make sure you’re set up should you need it. Now, with the virus everywhere, you can make a telehealth appointment and talk to a medical provider electronically, without having to appear at the facility. To have a video appointment, you’ll need either a computer, a tablet or a smartphone, as well as the VA Video Connect App. (See mobile.va.gov/app/va-videoconnect.) Scroll down to the yellow



The Gentlemen (R) — Guy Ritchie — master of the British crime caper ensemble — scores a hit with The Gentlemen, featuring an American ex-pat weed magnate named Michael Pearson (Matthew McConaughey) attempting to unload his empire. Meanwhile, his head henchman (Charlie Hunnam) negotiates a payoff deal with a sleazy PI (Hugh Grant) who regales him with a play-by-play of the forces working against said deal, including the upstart Asian gangster “Dry Eye” (Henry Golding) and a group of charming, acrobatic thugs who call themselves the Toddlers and post vids of fights while rapping. Michelle Dockery (Downton Abbey) also stars in a decidedly inelegant but juicy power woman role as Pearson’s wife. The Last Full Measure (R) — William H. Pitsenbarger (Jeremy Irvine) was a paratrooper medic in the Vietnam War whose acts of bravery and sacrifice go unvalidated for decades until Scott Huffman (Sebastien Stan), a fast-rising Pentagon staffer, takes up the mission to award Pits the Congressional Medal of Honor decades after his death.

You can make appointments, refill prescriptions, send secure messages to your care team and download or view your medical records. You know what the virus symptoms are — we’ve all heard them a thousand times on television — but if you have a cough, fever or shortness of breath, call your medical provider. Don’t just show up. Call to warn them you’re coming because they might have a special entrance for you to use, with staff in protective gear to greet you. Following their instructions will protect not only the staff but other veterans. And no, it’s not a joke: Wash your hands multiple times per day. The coronavirus enemy is sneaky and vicious. investigation uncovers both the medic’s unbridled valor, as told by fellow soldiers and witnesses to his sacrifices (Samuel L. Jackson, Peter Fonda and Ed Harris), and a shocking conspiracy at the highest levels to keep the past buried. It’s based on a true story. Set in a war so filled with tragedy, the story is uplifting and inspirational. Bad Boys for Life (R) — As he welcomes his first grandchild to the world, Marcus Bennett (Martin Lawrence) aims to retire. Partner Mike Lowery (Will Smith) may be getting older, but he’s still aims at every bad guy in the Miami area — and he’s still just as swass. When a Mexican drug cartel targets Lowery, he teams up with Miami’s elite tech unit to take down his would-be killer while attempting to lure his better half out of retirement. This franchise stretches back a quarter century, and it gives as much mayhem, banter and attitude today as it did in 1995. Like a Boss (R) — Two besties build a great company from the ground up, but small business can be a big headache if it’s buried in debt. This is where we find Mia and Mel (Tiffany Haddish and Rose Byrne), who are struggling to keep their quirky cosmetics business afloat. Enter Claire Luna (Salma Hayek), the boss of a large cosmetics conglomerate, who throws out a lifeline partnership. Unfortunately, it comes with strings and obstacles that the friends will have to overcome to save their business and friendship. It’s meant to be a real girl’s-night yuk-it-up featuring personality archetypes and competing interests, but it never gets past middle management-level laughs.


Joshing Around at Bingo We took my friend, JoAnn to play Bingo and she sure had a spectacular day. First we had a big breakfast at the buffet and then wandered in to get set up for Bingo. JoAnn has a special star-shaped dauber that she swears is lucky. She uses it for the big games and saves it otherwise. “Could I borrow that for just an ordinary game?” I asked. JoAnn thought about it and then said, “I don’t think so. I’m grateful to you for bringing me but I don’t loan my lucky dauber.” I grinned to myself as I had been teasing her just to see what she would say. “You could probably sell it for big bucks,” I went on not ready to stop the fun. Then Kate joined in. “Or you could auction it off


JUNE 2020 to the highest bidder. I’d start it off with a bid of ten dollars.” JoAnn was horrified. “It’s worth at least a hundred and fifty to me. In fact, I don’t believe I’d sell it for that.” “I don’t know,” said Kate, “You can play a lot of Bingo for a hundred and fifty dollars.” A special game came up and JoAnn readied her star dauber. “I’m ready for you,” she mumbled, “We’ll just see who is lucky.” This game was the small cross plus the four corners which is pretty difficult to keep track of, but JoAnn and Kate both seemed to be doing well. “Want to make a small outside wager?” I asked, “We could bet on who would be on first.” “And call it off if somebody Bingoes before one of us is on,” said Kate, eager to get some action going. “I tell you what,” she went on, “I’ll double up for anyone who Bingoes, not at this table.” That didn’t make much sense to me, but I went along anyway. Then JoAnn bingoed. She made it for the big game and for Kate’s side bet also, but she got mixed up when turning in her card. The floor walker was very helpful and got her straightened out. “That one is for my other bet,”she said. “You can’t have a side bet in here,” said the floor walker sternly. “It’s against the rules.” “I never heard of such a

thing,” protested Kate. “You mean no side bets are allowed?” “That’s right,” said the floor walker. “I’m afraid I’ll have to report you to management.” She went marching off and we stared at each other, not knowing what to do next. Soon she was back with a young man who looked more nervous than I felt. “These are the ones,” said the floor walker. “We didn’t know it was against the rules,” I said. “We won’t do it again.” “On pain of eternal punishment?” asked the young man. We all swore and then the floor walker and the young man began laughing. It had all been a big joke.

BOB ON BINGO By Bob Whittmore Some Bittersweet Emails * “I use curbside pickup for my groceries these days. I keep two large laundry baskets in the hatchback of my vehicle. Any bags go in the baskets, so it’s easy to transport them into the house and keep contact to a minimum. When I’m done unloading and wiping down, I can spray out the laundry baskets and let them dry in the sun for next time. Can’t be too careful.” — T.E. in Virginia * “Stay ahead of the drain: Pour a tea kettle of boiling water down the drain once a month, or if you notice the drain slowing. The hot water can break up material collecting inside the drain. Half a cup of baking soda added to the water will absorb any odors that are building.” — Colepepper Plumbing in California * A hanging shoe rack is a handy place to keep office supplies and school supplies for the whole family. Pencils, markers, assignment cards, and even papers. You can give each person a row, or label the pockets. * There’s a lot of decluttering going on across the country right now. Here’s a pro tip: For seasonal items, if you didn’t wear it last season, consider selling or donating. Same applies if it’s a specialty item (skiwear, hiking boots, formalwear) that hasn’t been used for more than two years. Many people keep items that are on the expensive side, even though season after season goes by without the item being used. If you rationalize keeping the scuba suit, plan a scuba trip!

Q: Is it true that there will be another Law & Order series with Christopher Meloni? I hope so. I really miss his character. — M.R. A: It was recently announced that Meloni will be bringing his Law & Order character, Elliot Stabler, to a new series produced by L&O creator Dick Wolf, but the details haven’t been sorted out yet. Meloni left Law & Order: SVU in 2011, so this is certainly exciting news. Hopefully Stabler is still a detective or it just wouldn’t be the same, but since his character retired at the end of SVU, it’s possible his career aspirations have taken a new turn. Perhaps he’ll be a lawyer or private detective. Either way, fans are thrilled to have him back. Matt Olmstead of Chicago P.D. will be behind the scenes of the new show, with 13 episodes already ordered for filming. No other cast members besides Meloni have been announced.

This time around I’m dipping into the e-mail box at bobonbingo@ earthlink.net for two letters I received recently. One is nearly too sad to read, but, here goes. It’s from Sandy S. in Culpepper, Virginia: “Dear Bob. I recently lost my mother. She was pushing 90 and failed fast. The reason I am writing to you is to tell you that the moment she got into the hall where I would take her to play Bingo, she would rip open the Bingo Bugle and look for YOUR column. I remember a couple of months when your column did not appear. My mom was concerned that either you had gotten fired or were ill…or worse.” “I told her that I had once read in your column that the regional publishers of the Bingo Bugle are able to decide which columns to use, based on the space they had and that sometimes your column got dumped when the paper had an excess of advertising. “I tell you this because mom is no longer around, but I still go to that hall to play. And, in her honor, the first thing I do when I enter the hall is to rip open the Bingo Bugle and look for YOUR column. I can tell you that I

don’t always agree with you. I think you are a little off the mark when you say you think all Bingo halls should be LOUD…but, you certainly did bring my mom a lot of pleasure. “I am sure I am not the only letter you have gotten with a similar story. Thanks, again. Sandy S.” Sandy, that is really sweet. My personal memories of playing Bingo with my mother are from my childhood. I have written about those days before. We all have bittersweet memories. They are the flavor and spice of our lives. Our second e-mail comes from just down the road from me, from Stateline, Nevada. Margo C. writes to say: “Bob, I was reminiscing the other day with a Bingo friend about a column you wrote years ago about a fellow who used to play Bingo at your hall who had died. You mentioned that he was bigger than life. You said he always SHOUTED ‘BINGO’ and would always say: “Bingo, loud and clear.” He did it because that is what the callers announced you should shout. “I think we all pause at times and look out over the hall and see the empty chairs. We can still see and hear the men and women who used to sit there. Were it not for their patronage of Bingo, those halls might not be around today for us to enjoy.” Thanks, Margo C. I’ll see you all next month.

By Susan Gabbay

THE GARDEN The days have gone for me to kneel in the garden to dig up dandelions with an old kitchen knife. No more will I drag hose and sprinkler to a thirsty lawn. Never again to tuck a baby snapdragon snugly into bed. My back has called a halt. Accepting my new role in the drama of the garden I will watch, and I will applaud.

A ROOT You are twisted, misshapen, warped. Dingy, dusty, with swollen excrescences. No place in the garden for such as you. I cover you with earth, not to look upon you more. Time passes. In that spot there appears a tall, stately, living green stem, bearing a giant blossom, intricate, royal red. It is you, O Dahlia, your splendor rules the garden.

JUNE 2020

Bullied at Bingo Hi Guy, My friend and I enjoy going to Bingo regularly. What we do not enjoy is being singled out and rudely commented on or gestured at by other Bingo players because of our weight. I am well aware that I am a “thick” guy and do not need strangers pointing it out to me. It is an issue I’ve dealt with all my life. In fact, in recent years I have had quite a bit of success in losing weight but have farther to go and will keep at it. My friend has he alth issues that resulted in some of her weight gain. She is home a lot because of these issues (she needs oxygen) and Bingo is one of the activities she is able to get to and play and enjoy for a few hours once or twice a week, especially now that smoking has been banned. Because my friend must move slowly, we make a point of leaving for Bingo early and getting our paper and finding our seats before there is a

crowd. When Bingo is over, we wait for the crowd to leave before exiting. In spite of these efforts, we do occasionally run into another player who gets huffy and upset because we are in their way. Sometimes we get a rude comment, but more often the person says nothing but makes it clear with sighs and body language that we are irritating her. (I say “her” because it is always women. I have never experienced this behavior from a male player.) Other hurtful comments come from women who are sitting or standing nearby us. Those are the really peculiar ones—we are not bothering them in any way, but they can’t help but stare or make comments to each other just loud enough for us to hear. At one point my friend told me she was thinking of not going to Bingo anymore because she felt unwelcome. I told her I understood and sometimes felt that way myself. But I pointed out that it was a tiny handful of players who were so thoughtless and that the majority of people at Bingo were perfectly fine. I also reminded her of the $350 she had won recently. That reminder ended any further discussion of quitting Bingo! I guess the message I want to pass along is that high school is long behind us and there is no place for this “mean girls”





attitude at Bingo. We are all adults and should be kind and thoughtful to others. Bingo is entertainment. There is no need to bring petty behavior and stress to the games. Let’s all be friendly and just have fun. Ryan M., Washington Hi Ryan, As a man who has had his share of issues with weight, I can understand where you and your friend are coming from. While I have never experienced as an adult the bullying you describe—and let’s be honest, the people you speak of are clearly bullies—it is easy to see why your friend considered turning her back on outings to Bingo. Why leave the safety and security of home and pay money to sit in a public space and be ridiculed? You are a good friend for letting her air her concerns and share some solid advice on how to move forward. As my mom used to say: “To hell with those bitches!” Let’s go play Bingo! — Guy Hey guys! (And gals!) Write to: Guy’s Turn c/o The Bingo Bugle, P.O. Box 527, Vashon, WA 98070, or email Guy directly at Tonder22@aol.com. Be sure to include your name and address (you may request that your name not be published), as typically Guy will not include anonymous letters in his columns.


* The first real shampoo dates back to the 1500s. In India, “sapindus,” aka soapberries or suppliants, were boiled with dried Indian gooseberry and other herbs. The extract created a lather and resulted in soft, shiny hair. * On April 1, 1974, black smoke was seen rising from Mount Edgecumbe, a volcano in Alaska. When a Coast Guard pilot came closer to investigate, he found 70 tires burning and the words “APRIL FOOL” spray painted into the snow. * Ben & Jerry learned how to make ice cream by taking a $5 correspondence course (which they split between them) offered by Penn State. * U.S. park ranger Roy C. Sullivan had the flabbergasting distinction of being struck by lightning the most times and surviving: seven times between 1942 and 1977. * Speaking of distinctions, Buzz Aldrin holds the curious title of being the first man to urinate on the moon, shortly after stepping onto its surface.

Minding Your Gambling Manners Following is part two of the the do’s and don’ts of casino manners series; this month we’re focusing exclusively on Blackjack (we’ll also cover Craps, Roulette, Slots and Video Poker machines in the months ahead). And remember what I said previously, even if you are a seasoned veteran, it won’t hurt to brush up on your casino manners to avoid a potentially embarrassing situation. Blackjack Do’s and Don’t --An empty chair doesn’t always mean an open spot. Check to be sure an adjacent player isn’t playing two spots. On the other hand, if you are playing two spots and the tables are crowded and someone is anxious to play, be courteous and give up one of your betting spots to the new player. --Don’t hog the table and use a vacant chair adjacent to you as a foot stool or arm rest. Chairs are for players only although when the casino isn’t crowded, it’s usually OK for a spouse or friend to sit at an adjacent chair to watch you play. --Don’t join a game in the middle of a shoe unless you ask your fellow players if it’s OK to do so. Many players believe that a new player who joins a game in mid-shoe will disrupt the flow of the cards (even though there is no basis for this). Actually, it’s a good idea to wait till the shuffle to buy-in. --Make sure you use the


JUNE 2020 correct hand signals for hitting and standing (please don’t say “hit me”). In shoe games where all the player cards are dealt face up do not touch the cards. In single deck pitch games, only handle the cards with one hand and always keep the cards over the table where the dealer (and the eye in the sky) can see them. Also, if you are dealt a blackjack hand or your hand busts (i.e. totals over 21), immediately place the cards face up on the layout. --Offer playing advice to other players only when asked. Do not criticize or demean the playing decisions of fellow players. It’s their money and they have the right to play their hand as they wish. If you are dissatisfied with how another player is making his/her decisions, then leave quietly and play elsewhere. --Once you make a bet and the cards are dealt, do not touch the chips that you have wagered. When you double down or pair split, place your secondary wager next to (not on top) of the original wager. If you are wagering several chips of different denomination, stack them neatly in the betting spot so that the lower denomination chip is placed on top of the higher denomination chip (e.g. for a $30 wager place a red chip on top of a green chip). --Although it’s OK to use a basic strategy card when you play, don’t refer to it on each and every hand. This slows down the game play and can annoy other players (you should be familiar with most of the strategy anyway before you sit down and play). --If you are a novice blackjack player it’s best not to sit at third base (last position to receive a card before the dealer). Many experienced blackjack players mistakenly believe that a wrong play made by the third base player can have an effect on the outcome of the dealer’s hand and potentially lead to player losses. Disgruntled players often will make comments to third base players when this happens (which is itself bad manners).

Cyber Hugs and Hope I thought I’d hit rock bottom, but then I caught myself eating Cheetos in the shower. I was clearly mistaken. – Anonymous, or is it?

As I write this in early April for a June deadline at Bingo Bugle, we are in the midst of the corona virus pandemic. I hope and pray that when this article is published in June, we will all be on the other side of this terrible scourge. Although National Hermit Week is June 13-20, it seems like it should be held in early spring this year since most of us are holed up, covered up, and scared witless. On the other hand, June is also Rebuild Your Life month, so my advice for June is get on with it. That means going back to bingo, indulging our gambling habits at casinos, and cruising to places safe to visit. It means supporting local businesses and getting back to business including school and work. If at this time in June we’re still quarantined and wearing masks my husband, Robert, and I will probably be facing off like two crazed wrestlers on World Wide Wrestling. Too much togetherness is not always bliss. Don’t get me wrong, Robert and I after forty-five years as a couple have learned to negotiate and pick our fights. However, months of being cooped up 24/7 is enough to drive even sane people like us bonkers.

I never thought I’d see the day when we had to cook several times a day or starve. We’re used to eating out far too frequently, so staying in, planning menus, then shopping in safe mode with masks and physical distancing is a chore but a necessary one. Come to think of it, everything is a chore and worthy of an argument including who left the toilet seat up and caused a wet surprise, not of the good kind. When there are no time markers in our lives like church on Sunday or a bingo session, it is way too easy to forget the day of the week or time of day. We wear pajamas at noon while watching Tiger King on TV and munching Cheetos. We will surely still have orange fingers next Halloween. Fun fact. The orange residue from Cheetos is called cheetle. Another fun fact. National Doughnut Day is held each year on the first Friday in June. If you stuff orange Cheetos into your mouth while eating a doughnut, your taste buds will explode with deliciousness. Trust me, I know this for a fact. Since the shutdown/quarantine started, hugs and handshakes have been off limits. I think that’s what most of us are missing most about our self-imposed seclusion, human contact. The custom of a handshake greeting goes back to ancient times where it originated as a gesture of peace; demonstrating that the hand was not holding a weapon. In ancient Rome the custom was to grab each other’s sleeves when introduced so as to detect whether or not the sleeves held hidden weapons. National Handshake Day is June 25 so if not this year, maybe a year from now we can resume this centuries-old habit and combine it with a warm embrace. Until next month may Lady Luck blow you kisses as you dance out the door with dollars. Win big. You can send me a cyber hug at homemailbox@roadrunner.com and I’ll send one back. I love hugs of all kinds.
