“Life is a game of poker, 

Happiness is the pot.

Fate deals you four cards and a joker, 

And you play whether you like it or not.”

This is just a simple thought, a possible maybe? I know everyone knows this little poem by now. I was just sitting here watching some tv and opened TTOTC, to look through it again, out of boredom. I just happened to open to this page when I picked it up, and my first thought when reading it, was the many pictures of a hat.

A little funny and a tad bit of dyslexia I guess on my part. When I read “Happiness is the pot”, I seen “Happiness is the top”. I do remember looking at synonyms of “hat” in the past and “top” was one of the most popular words. 

Idk? Maybe someone might find it useful.  Good luck searchers….

  1. Let me show you the relevance of that quote. If you go to : https://www.oldsantafetradingco.com/assets/book-previews/thrill-of-the-chase.pdf
    You will find that quote.
    The PDF was for those poor rednecks that could jump into their pickup truck with a bedroll and go seek the treasure. Poor people can’t really afford to buy TTOTC so Forrest posted the best hints from the book for free on his website.
    The 4 cards are the first 3 stanzas and the Epilogue shown in the PDF and also the 4th stanza.
    The joker is the fifth stanza.
    If you can do that, confidence will be had.
    This has not ever been discussed on a forum ever.
