    I was told that someone was asking about my buddy James Hall that I had played craps with before here in Vegas when he and his wife would come to Vegas!

    This past Wednesday on 2-12-20 I drove down to Phoenix to see James Hall, hoping that he could get up of bed but that was not the case! The cancer that he was fighting was now in stage four.

    It was hard for me to see him that way, after all, he was a big man that was now ravished by the cancer. His body wasn't the same as I had known him. James like always wasn't giving up he was fighting the pain and making sure that his wife and daughter would be taking care of, that was the reason for the new house!

    Like everything James did in life he was never negative about anything he did. He knew that you can't beat a man that doesn't quit. I was a lucky man when I met James beside the time we spent on the tables I spent a lot of time with him on the phone and his wife over the years!

    He was the real deal and one hell of a good guy! Because they have no real craps where he lives I had to play craps with him here in Vegas when he and his wife came up to Vegas!

    James, knew the game inside out and is one of those friends that you do not find to often. We talked craps and his way of playing the game which was having no fear! James's house was always open to the guys that he had taught to play the game.

    There for a while, his table was in one of the local bars which the first video was shot in. He would give free classes there.

    So if you do know James and have his phone number please give him a call to let him know how much you think of him!

    We all hit the golden years and they suck, they are only for the doctors, so live every minute to it's fullest!

    My wife and I lost a long time friend in the same way you describe. She had been failing for about 18 months, and having to watch her basically wither away during the last four months was very frustrating and depressing. I obviously can take only an educated guess as to what James and his family are going through, and I regret I have no elixir, literal or figurative, to ease the transition. I have no contact info for James and so must ask you to relay my sincere best wishes to him and his. I really would have liked to meet him, for despite our differences we managed to stay out of the gutter.
    As Josey Wales might say, everybody dies, but James sounds like one of those who has really lived. I am reminded of a quote from ST-DS9, "By Inferno's Light". Worf, a Klingon and Star Fleet officer, fights Ikat'ika, a Jem'Hadar warrior. Worf is getting beat to a pulp but refuses to "stay down". At last Ikat'ika declares, "I yield! I cannot defeat this Klingon. All I can do is kill him." (The full scene is here.)

    Hey SR - good to hear from you & hope all is well.

    Thank you for providing an update on James Hall. Good of you to continue to support a friend in need. It's disheartening when anyone has to endure what JH is currently going through. Fortunately, based upon his posts here over the years, it sounds like he has lived a fulfilling life.

    Please convey my best wishes to him and his loved ones.

    Hey Rick,

    Thanks for posting an update. I never had a lot to do with James and I'm thousands of miles away down under but he's still our brother and let him know I'm rooting for him all the way.

    This one's for James.

    :) Ok so, one hit, and a couple halves, "sometimes"?
    How long is a "session"? :confused:
    That "disclaimer" "not every session" is a little vague, I mean, you could do it every every other session, or every tenth session, and the statement would still hold true. :cool:

    You have no clue, as to what I have or have not done. Thanks to you, he may not even be safe in his own house anymore. You are a truly facetious, and vindictive, bitch. Ma'am. I think YOUR post above, is pretty indicative, of who the troll really is. The "bell" tolls for thee, Ma'am. I feel no need, to make a public statement, on MR Halls situation, MR Hall knows, where I stand, and that's enough. And I know where he would stand, if the rolls were reversed. :cool:

    Halls willingness to openly post info was his own fault

    Usually I get it 1/2, 1/3 of the time maybe.

    Sessions are 1-3 hours depending on my win/loss planned or time limit.

    I try never to play a crowded table so I get the dice back quick.
