NOVEMBER 2019 is probably my favorite, but it is really hard to stay awake for the Bingo! JG, New York

Bingo Fests and Feasts Recently we invited readers to write in and tell us about their most memorable Bingo hall dining experiences. Following are a few of the responses we received. —Aunt Bingo Dear Aunt Bingo: My favorite dining experiences are actually whole-big-event experiences that take place at several churches in my region and include Bingo. These churches have Bingo licenses and offer weekly Bingo throughout the year. But they also have annual festivals or family socials during which they serve food, provide entertainment, and will also have a session or two of Bingo. One church has a summer festival and sets up a big tent outdoors where people can play Bingo or just sit and relax with a meal out of the sun. A Greek Orthodox church has a similar event and sells amazing Greek food and also offers Bingo in the church center. Still another church has a Christmas bazaar where vendors and crafters sell holiday items, students perform holiday music, there’s a primo turkey dinner, and Bingo in the evening. The Christmas turkey dinner

Dear Aunt Bingo: You asked people to write in about unforgettable Bingo hall dining experiences. My most unforgettable is not a meal I had, but one I have witnessed many times by another player. Mrs. G. brings a small basket with her that not only has food, but also contains china, glassware, cutlery, a tablecloth, placemat, cloth napkin, a vase with flowers and an electric candle—which I assume she uses because there must be a fire code against a candle with an open flame! Before the start of Bingo, Mrs. G. lays out her place setting and has a lovely candlelit dinner while she waits for Bingo to start. Sometimes friends join her, sometimes she dines alone, but it is a regular ritual with her and is just adorable. I’ve been tempted to copy her, except that it seems like too much work! Alice M., Indiana, via email Dear Aunt Bingo: There is a Bingo in our area that has a dining experience that is the best—Free Food! It is nothing fancy—a free hot dog and drink for paying players—plus they sell other stuff like munchies and additional beverages if you want more. I think this is the greatest idea because it probably doesn’t cost the hall very much and it is a nice gesture to those of us who spend money there every year. It makes you feel like you are getting a little something back on those many, many nights when the Bingo prizes are going to someone else. William, via email 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.

Reducing the Rate of Military Suicides In a joint venture to reduce suicides, the Department of Veterans Affairs, the Department of Defense and the Vet Centers have hooked up to provide counseling and outreach to the National Guard on drill weekends and during training. In 2017, the National Guard had the highest rate of suicide of all the military. Now, however, the rate of National Guard members using the Vet Centers has risen 38%, and the suicide rate has fallen to its the lowest level in five years. It’s thought that the increased use of the Vet Center services could be the reason. Meanwhile, the Defense Suicide Prevention Office’s most recent report saw 2018 deaths-by-suicide numbers that were mostly higher than the year before: Air Force 60, Army 139, Marine Corps 58, Navy 68, Reserves 216 and National

Guard 135. As the VA continues to try to understand the reasons for veteran suicides, it’s looking at limited access to health care and isolation. Up until 2016, Vermont had the nation’s highest rate of veteran suicide. By this year, it was reported in Congress that Montana had the highest rate. First thoughts point to rural living and cold weather, yet in California, sunny and warm San Diego has the highest rate for that state. If you think you might be in trouble, or if you know a veteran who is, call the Veterans Crisis Hotline 24/7 at 1-800273-8255 or go online to www. You also can send a text to 838255. Besides the 24/7 hotline, National Guard and Reservists are eligible to use the services of the Vet Centers (there are 300) and Mobile Vet Centers (there are 80). To find out more about what the Vet Centers do, or to find one in your area, go online to www.

progressively possessive and vindictive. Billed as a psychological thriller, it’s from Blumhouse, so it’s funny in parts, too — especially Spencer. All in all, a fine rental for a Friday night.



Booksmart (R) — Kaitlyn Dever and Beanie Feldstein star as Amy and Molly, two hyper-driven academic types who realize, on the eve of graduation, that their tendency to skip the social life to hit the books has left them underachievers in high-school fun. So, they attempt to make up for it all at once by living up their partying dreams in a single night — a hilarious combination of fails, nearmisses and triumphs that’s endearing and quite hilarious. The whole experience feels funny and fresh, and is a real coup by actress Olivia Wilde in her feature directorial debut. Ma (R) — Kids do stupid stuff, like asking perfect strangers who happen to be adults to purchase alcohol for them. Well, when a group of kids approach loner Sue Ann (Octavia Spencer) to be their 21plus hookup, they get much more than they bargained for: access to Ma’s place, where copious amounts of alcohol flow. It’s a secluded basement crash pad for teens, and the host offers a whole lot of personal attention. Few rules apply; just never enter the upstairs area. But when some of the kids try to pull away, Ma gets

MIB: International (PG-13) — A young woman (Tessa Thompson) selfrecruits to the famed alien-regulating police force Men in Black, where she’s deemed Agent M. She’s sent to prove her mettle in the London office, with High T (Liam Neeson) and the handsome, devilmay-care Agent H (Chris Hemsworth). They set off to uncover a plot involving a couple of extraterrestrial hitmen, a teenytiny warrior-knight and a double cross leading back to a DNA-hijacking a group of planetary invaders called “the Hive.” I’m a fan of Thompson, Hemsworth and the MIB franchise. That said, this movie was frivolously fun but ultimately forgettable. In fact, my teen daughter couldn’t recall major plot points only a few months after seeing it in the theater. Mary Magdalene (R) — Rooney Mara steps into the title role of Mary Magdalene, follower of Jesus (Joaquin Phoenix), who left her family and home to join an enigmatic man who was called the son of God. Pretty brave stuff. The rich source material of an early feminist who unabashedly follows her heart despite the suffocating gender restrictions of her day, particularly a historic woman as maligned as Magdalene — mischaracterized as a prostitute, a disciple who was left out of the historical record — should have been compelling, but I was underwhelmed. It’s beautiful and all the players do the things they should, but it never materializes into the powerful piece it could have been.


Road Trip for Turkey Day I love Thanksgiving. It has all the wonderful food and glitz and glamour of Christmas without the agony of gift giving. This year the family gathering was to be at Cousin Joe’s in Pocatello where I love to visit. Kate was unhappy over the long drive: a day to get there, a day to spend there, and a day to get back home. Nonetheless we packed up and were ready to go bright and early on the Wednesday. On the way we had to go by the Western Mall, one of our nation’s largest, and I persuaded Kate to stop for just a half hour, to which she grudgingly agreed. “Meet me in one half hour at the first coffee stand,” she said and I nodded my assent. I happily tromped off to see what new fashions were available when I suddenly saw Cousin Martha browsing. She also was on her way to Cousin Joe’s, but I hadn’t


NOVEMBER 2019 seen her in so long I couldn’t resist having a gab. Of course I lost track of time and when we reached the coffee stand, Kate was steaming. “You don’t realize what a long hard drive it is,” she growled at me. “You can talk to Martha tomorrow. Now let’s get going.” So we hustled on and were at Cousin Joe’s just as darkness fell. There was a light buffet set out and, “We’re going to Bingo,” announced Joe. “Anybody who wants to come along, let’s go.” I grabbed sandwich fixings from the table and was in the car in a shake. Kate followed in our car and had several passengers also. We got to the Bingo Hall just in time to buy-in before the games started, but luckily there was an empty table so all of us could sit together. We had no luck on the first three games, but then Cousin Harvey won the fourth game and we were much encouraged. The next game was called Pocatello Poke ‘em and was one I had never before heard of. It consisted of the N row, the top G, the second O, and the third G, making a P of sorts. Kate won that one which improved her disposition mightily. Next we played a blackout that I was on for but didn’t win. Cousin Joe won the next game and then it was all over. We returned to Joe’s where another buffet awaited us. His wife is really one special lady to put up with all the relatives who descended on them for the holiday. By this time Kate was in a much better mood and enjoyed all the relatives. There was one small hitch in the evening. Cousin Joe’s eleven-year-old daughter dumped a load of spaghetti in her lap and

shed tears of embarrassment until she was cleaned up and pronounced ready to return to the table. Thanksgiving Day was just marvelous. We all helped with food preparation, and there were many offerings of gratitude for our family and what it means to all of us. Kate surprised us all by making a small speech just before we ate.

Those are some good reasons to play St. Francis Lions Club Bingo. Try it, you’ll be back again and again, we’re sure.

Caller Snaps at Bingo Hi Guy, A lot of us Bingo players have been at this a long time and have certain “traditions” that are innocent and fun. One of them is giving the caller a bit of a hard time when he/she is calling the “wrong” numbers…that is, the numbers other players are looking for and not the ones we want. Of course, sometimes players get frustrated because they are having a bad night and will take it out on the caller with more direct and pointed comments that are less on the “fun” side and more along the lines of “snippy.” But even these people mostly know where to draw the line and limit their jabs to complaining about the caller being too slow, too chatty, or needing to do something so the same “wrong” numbers don’t keep coming up all the time. I give callers credit for taking the friendly (and not-so-friendly) ribbing in stride, understanding that it comes with being the most public person and easiest target during Bingo. I must admit that I’m a little surprised that grumpy players

going after callers who are just trying to do their jobs doesn’t result in regular shouting matches and the occasional flying dauber. We had an incident at Bingo recently that got out of hand in just this way. It started as one player being unhappy with his card numbers and ribbing the caller about it. Then a second player joined in and the two took turns heckling the caller, who was a good caller, very popular with the players, and had been working at this hall for almost two years. You could tell that the two players were getting on the caller’s nerves, but she did her best not to let it show. Then she made the mistake of removing the next ball (I-21) from the chute (which everyone had seen on the monitor) and calling I-27 by mistake. Needless to say, there was a loud burst of objections from the players because everybody knew the wrong number had been called. It was an innocent mistake, of course, but the complaints from players kept going on and on…probably because there had already been tension in the air from the two men who were giving the caller such a hard time earlier on. The caller had an advantage over the situation because she had the microphone—and boy did she use it! She tore into the players about how childish they had been since the start of Bingo, and how ridiculous they were being now. She then called them a roomful of “Bingo bitches and bastards” and stomped across the stage and through the side door. The place went dead silent. After a few minutes someone else took over the caller’s seat, officially corrected the I-21 error,


and moved on with the rest of the session. The original caller never reappeared, and the substitute caller didn’t hear another peep out of us bitches and bastards. Bingo ended about 30 minutes later, and you never saw a hall empty so fast in your life. We’re all very curious to see what’s going to happen next. Karl the Bingo Bastard, via email

Hi Karl, I’ve seen my share of skirmishes at Bingo over the years, typically between players or between a player and the hall manager. But never have I seen a caller grab the microphone and take on the whole hall! I’m curious if this happened at a charity or a for-profit Bingo hall. If it is for profit, then that caller probably collects a salary and/or tips and may have put her job in jeopardy. If it is charity and she is a volunteer, then she can walk away or stay, without financial hardship being part of the dynamic. Clearly people on both sides of the caller’s stand hold some blame for the incident. But in my opinion, the caller’s reaction was extreme— name-calling and storming off the stage—which may just cost her this job. Keep us posted on what happens next! —Guy Hey guys! (And gals!)

What's News in Nevada . . . VINTAGE SLOT MACHINES GIVEAWAY A recent promotion at The Plaza in downtown Las Vegas drew a lot of attention. The facility staged a promotion that promised chances to win vintage, coin-operated slot machines from days gone by. The promotion’s rules involved play in a video poker tournament. All of the machines involved in the giveaway were at least twenty-five years old or older. WHEN A “PENNY” MACHINE ISN’T Many tourists to Las Vegas say they are confused by the fact that many slot machines that have a one-cent sign on them are FAR from being penny slot machines. It is getting increasingly more difficult to find a true penny machine—one that will let you actually play only ONE penny for each pull of the lever. At McCarran International Airport, for example, some of the so-called “penny” machines require a minimum bid of nearly two dollars with each “spin.” In the total scheme of things, though, “penny” machines are a larger and larger part of slot gaming. WISCONSIN TOURIST HITS BIG ONE The Flamingo in Las Vegas reports that a Wisconsin man won $1.3 million playing a Let It Ride progressive slot machine. The winner is a frequent visitor to Las

Vegas. The win marks the eighth time in recent months that a player has won at least $1-million while playing table games at Caesars properties in Nevada. RENO STUDENT DORM WAS ONCE PART OF CASINO Some time ago when officials of UNR (The University of Nevada at Reno) inked an agreement to lease a downtown casino hotel tower for a year and turn it into a college dormitory, a lot of eyebrows were raised. The decision, according to school officials, had to be made after a gas explosion in early July displaced more than 1,300 students. The facility being used is only minutes from the UNR campus. It may take two years to repair the damaged caused by the explosion. HOTEL APACHE RE-OPENS With much ceremony, the venerable Hotel Apache at Binions has re-opened. And, as was anticipated earlier, the granddaughter of the man who built the original facility was the first guest. Media are reporting that Gina Silvagni Perry (who was 4 years old when her grandfather died in 1958) was very anxious about the re-do. By the way, the property has changed hands a few times over the years; it was re-branded as Binion’s Gambling Hall and Hotel some years ago. The hotel at Binion’s had been closed for about a decade.


Queen Nancy Thanksgiving is a time to count your blessings, one by one. That would be as each friend and relative heads out the door and goes home. –Anonymous Pumpkin this and pumpkin that. Pumpkin pie and pumpkin hats. No, not really, at least I don’t think there are eatable pumpkin hats. Tis the season though and if you don’t like pumpkin, you will surely be scorned by those who do. It is November and as I do every year at this time, I want to thank those who faithfully read this column and send me emails and letters. That list includes Sandy, David, John, Marle, the Popes, the Galls; Tara, my publisher and Dick who encouraged my writing years ago. Thank you to those who organize and run our bingo games, plus their workers. And thank you to my husband, Robert, who reads each of my columns and tells me how wonderful they are. Or not. So, how many of you are shopping till you drop on Black Friday and Cyber Monday? Most shoppers spend an average of $300 on black Friday alone. The term Black Friday was coined in the 1960s and refers to stores moving from in the red, operating at a loss, to in the black, making a profit due to Christmas shopping sprees. The term Cyber Monday began in 2005 when a name was needed for the flurry of online sales

the Monday after Thanksgiving. With faster and better internet connections, online merchants saw an opportunity to milk the cash cow of Christmas shoppers as Black Friday retailers were already doing. Consumers happily obliged as they could merrily click away and shorten gift lists from the comfort of their offices/homes. No standing in long lines and running through stores at 4am with other shoppers like crazed cows. Not that yours truly ever did that. My chubby pudgy legs couldn’t outrun a stationary bike. Besides that, I believe the only reason to get up at 4am is to go to the airport to fly somewhere wonderful. To those of you who do enjoy this activity, I say when the stores open, fly fast like an arrow to the bargains you crave the most. For the rest of us who prefer online/catalog shopping, we will give thanks on Thanksgiving Day that we will not be among you. Then early on Black Friday, we will chortle bah humbug, roll over in bed and go back to sleep. Later that day we can sneak off to bingo for some alone time after the stress of hosting Thanksgiving and all that it entails. By the way so you know, plumbers love Black Friday as much as shoppers do. It is one of their most profitable days because more guests in our homes often cause clogged drains; think food leftovers, trash, and bodily deposits being flushed through inadequate drains; an ugly picture. Until next month, may Lady Luck blow you kisses as you dance out the door with dollars. Win big. Email homemailbox@roadrunner. com to contact me. Lastly, to my #1 fans, Carolyn and Chris. If you’re thinking I forgot you in my list of those for whom I am thankful, you’re wrong. You bought me a tiara like Queen Elizabeth’s to wear at bingo. Robert took one look and said, “It’s good to be the queen.” I agree. You are special friends, not just fans. Thank you.
