John Schnabel loves the Big Nugget Mine Calendar

I visited John & Irma Schnabel last Saturday night.  They were in high spirits.  John had recently returned from a Bridge Tournament in Whitehorse (4 hours away in the Yukon, Canada).  He said he took 3 and 4th place.  John said they used to be #1 in the tournament but the Whitehorse people have learned too many tricks from them (the Haines people).  John said he would be willing to teach me how to play too.  That would be very cool.

Well, I enjoyed Gold Rush.  I liked seeing behind the scenes with the cameramen getting in all sorts of trouble.  I was a little sad for Glenn getting reamed on by Parker so hard.  Glenn is so nice.  Parker is the Big Boss though ......you can see it huh.  He is not a boy any more.
I wish you a very Merry Christmas and thank you for reading.

55 OUNCES BABY - Parker Schnabel Wins

I had a great time watching Parker work super hard and FIND THE GOLD, 55 ounces - YAHOO!!!  It is more enjoyable for me to watch Parker Schnabel make his goals than to watch those poor boys up in the Yukon who can't seem to catch a break.  They work super hard and FAIL FINDING THE GOLD.  Bummer for the Oregon Crew.
