It Was A Dark And Horny Night

…gotta love them horny nights

Not much going on here at Casa Cross this week. We are going to a dog adoption place on Saturday to meet up with another Basset Hound, this one a young lass named Winker. Grace has been emailing back & forth with the SPCA lady about her and she seems to be a very nice, tho partially disabled, doggie. The disability comes from the loss of an eye, which, given a dogs greater dependence on smell than sight (especially in Bassets), is not a huge disability. We’ll be taking Daisy along to meet Winker, just to make sure they get along.

And now, today’s location…

About this location: All wild west settings need a good saloon.

#121: The Silver Dollar Saloon

As Saloons go, the Silver Dollar is pretty swanky. This swankiness is made possible by the many ways the management separates miners, cowboys, farmers, drifters and other folks from their hard earned wages. Booze, gambling, sporting ladies…the Silver Dollar has them all.

The downstairs of the saloon is dominated by the 75 foot long L shaped bar and the stage where a small band often plays and dancing girls dance. The rest of the downstairs is given over to tables, including those used for faro, poker, roulette, dice and other games of chance (chance being used in a more or less jesting way). There is a large backroom used for storing booze and a small office where the saloon owner counts his money.

Upstairs, it’s all about cribs for the ladies. There are 16 rooms, most of them fairly small, and a door leading to the back stairs, in case quick egress is needed.

Unbeknownst to most people, there is a trapdoor in the storeroom. It leads down to a tunnel that extends to a stable 150 feet away. This tunnel can be used for smuggling goods or people in and out.

Restroom facilities consist of a pretty fancy multi-user outhouse behind the saloon.
