One of the Pettas won't be at this reunion so I'm gonna
Gonna write about brother Phil as the aforementioned
Title. Bro told me back in the casino days of free play
That the next trip to ttown I needed to get all my buddies
Male or female (drivers licenses) and bring them with me
Preferably in person so he could register them as new
Avid freewheeling gamblers. Each card had a $10 value and
He could clean up twice a week. 20 cards or so! To be cont'd

If u get tired of this too bad. On a good day he could
Clear about $300-350, on a bad day about 100. Every phone call
I would get the low down on his secondary income. Tax free
Injun money. Slipping the cards in clandestinely, he would ply
His trade rather successfully for possibly a year or two.
I Told him there were cameras everywhere but he cared not.
Eventually he got banned by the creek tribe and I thought with
I abandoned laughter this was a kangaroo court! Later k

So I'm thinking dude, Ed is from lake Barkley, ky. Aren't these people
Gonna think how crazy ed is to be driving over twice a week to place
$10 bets. Oh%$#@*&%this is small change...they're after those big fish.
In case was conservative in my osu days, Phil would invite me down to
Ou where we could take walks on the wild side! Eventually after2.5 yrs
I transferred, and because of the tight ? Job market I hitched a gig at
Ole johns liquor store for $1.10/hr and free invite to the Xmas party!
Catering to Switzer and lacewell's tastes this became part of my resume!
