Welcome Doctor To Our Humble MadhouseWritten by Thomas Morgan aka The Irishsetter
Continued from page 1
Finally, after a little more than an hour, I needed a rest. I handed Doc two green cheques and said, “Play. Ride wave. Just quit thinking so much! If you lose, then it’s my money. I’ll be back in 5 minutes.”
I called for color and went in search of a drink. As I walked away from table, I heard Doc quietly ask for six and eight to be placed for $6 each.
As it turned out, it was two drinks and 25 minutes before I returned. I found that Doc had indeed been riding wave. With a little assistance from my two other friends, Doc had made a tidy profit. Apparently little old lady at table’s end, (who, to this day my pals claim was blind) had just concluded a looooong roll with what they were calling ‘Seeing Eye Dice.’ Doc was no longer mulling over probabilities and table corrections, but whether he should “come down with his place bets after two hits or three…” Doc turned toward shooter, and yelled “C’mon shoota shoota, SaWING!” In fifteen years that I’d known him, I don’t think I’d ever seen him so animated!
Sadly, rest of our group was due in from airport, and it was time to meet them back at hotel. “Time to go gents.” I said, pointing at my watch. The look on Doc’s face made me think for a moment, that we might have to physically drag him from table. After a stop at cashier’s booth, while Doc and I waited for my buddies to return from restroom, he recounted for me, in vivid detail, every bet he made, every regression, every win. “What a rush!” he said, “Craps REALLY gets under your skin. It’s addictive! We’ll play later tonight, right?” And to that I said, as another raucous cheer came from craps table we had vacated, “Welcome Doctor, to our humble madhouse.”

Jar Lid and Jar Candle DecorationWritten by michelle gauthier
Continued from page 1
You can also just use a pattern fabric to place inside lid. A great idea would to use a pattern that is in your room, maybe a leftover piece of wallpaper. Then you have a matching Jar to your room. Don't laugh, but I cut off a small piece of fabric from underside of my chair to use in a lid, so that it matched my furniture.
The jar itself can be decorated in so many ways, its impossible to list them all here. So I'll show a design and some ideas that I thought would be great to give as a gift to someone.
One of my favorite designs is to use my old Christmas cards or a specific holiday card as a design on my jar. Cut card it to fit jar, and then glue it to jar using crafters glue or glue dots. This is a great idea for a gift around Valentines or Christmas time. You could even use inside of card with message. And to top it off, adding a picture of yourself on other side of jar, will add a nice personal touch.
There are many things you can do to decorate your jar. Using some of ideas above, like pattern in lid, you can also use it on jar. Some other ideas are, painting a scene or message on jar, gluing ribbon strips vertically to add stripes, gluing flowers to base, adding your own custom label and something as simple as red lipstick kisses all over jar.
Your creativity holds no bounds. So have fun and try anything, I bet it will come out fabulous
