June’s Most Valuable Oodler

Congratulations to mrtony307, June’s Most Valuable Oodler! Tony is a longtime fan of GSN Games, and enjoys a number of our games. We see he has a birthday this month, so we’re especially happy he’s our newest MVO. We’d like to let him know we’re very sorry for the loss of his parents, and wish him the best for 2014. 

Tony With His Golden Oodle

To learn more about Tony, read on: 

Hi, my name is Tony H. Most of the GSN family probably knows me as mrtony307. I was born June 23, 1959. At 54 years old, I’m single, and a grandfather of five (three girls and two boys). I realize I am currently living my dream, but that “Dream” is not yet complete.

I live in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina which is the first part of my dream. The second part has not been found yet. I’d like to find someone who completes me someday, and who I can be a “Knight in Shining Armor” to. I’d whisk her away to the beach in South Carolina, where she can live her dream with me too.

I moved here in November of 2013. I had a fall, down a flight of fourteen steps in March of 2010. This fall caused some major back damage. The neurosurgeon says it will not get better….ONLY WORSE! I have had three back surgeries and I’m facing a fourth. It’s a life and we all have one; we just do our best with what we have.

I lost both of my parents in 2013. My dad passed away from a massive heart attack in June. My mother passed away from cancer in October.  I miss them both terribly, and not a day goes by I don’t think of them both.

My experiences with GSN is that I know if I have a question, the frequently asked questions part of the site, is very helpful. If I cannot find the answer there, then I go to GSN Help. They respond quickly, usually within 24-48 hours with a recommendation.

GSNAngel…now the words that come to mind……intelligent, thoughtful, respectful, compassionate, and beautiful. Though I have never seen her person we are all beautiful in our own way.

Even though this is the biggest prize I have ever won in the eight years playing on GSN Games, it’s all in GREAT fun.

Some of my favorite games to play on here: Alu’s Revenge, Spliterature, Bookworm, Swap-It, Vegas Nights and of course the usual: Daily Break, Oodles Bonus Trivia Questions, Cha-Chingo Bingo, Wonder Wheel, and Straws.

Some advice I have not seen from other players is if you are playing a flash game and you want to play it again, hit the button “Play Again” then hit your back button in your browser and it will immediately take you back to the game, without having to wait for it to process your request as normal.

Thanks again,  Tony

  1. Congratulations Tony!! The “bling” looks great!
    I enjoyed reading your blurb…
    It must be fabulous to have 5 grandchildren. I hope you’re able to spend time with them. We only have 1 granddaughter, but my goodness, they grow-up way too fast!
    So sorry to hear about your fall. I do hope you’re able to follow the rest of your dreams to fruition!
    Condolences on the loss of your parents. It’s always difficult to lose a loved one, let alone when it happens more than once in a year.

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY to you for later this month! We wish you all the Best in all your endeavors!!
    And Good luck with all the games you play here on GSN!! 🙂

    • I have never understood Alu’s Revenge so your favorite game surprised me. I k now i sound like a long shot but GSn occasionally features yoga toes which might help your back feel better. They are amazing. I have an OA knee and miss running very much but yoga toes relieve the every day pain more than I can explain as long as I use them. Congratulations on having grandchildren. I have one son but no grandchildren yet but I am a Grand Aunt. Aloha,

  2. WOOHOO, Mr.Tony!! Congratulations on becoming GSN’s MVO for June! You deserved some GSN love after the year you’ve been through. So glad you’re part of the family….enjoy your month!

    • Nice photo – Congratulations – I too have a birthday this month and have been through many life changes in these past years like you.
      I really appreciated your helpful tip on the flash games. I immediately went to try out your hint and had two very quick high scoring games and no more waiting to load.
      I am also single (widow/mother of teenager) and doing some soul searching. I enjoy many of the same games that you do, especially the card games. If you want, send me a challenge some time.

  3. Wow, your story sounds like mine almost to the T. lol Were both Gemini’s too…Congrats for June MVO. Hope you enjoy and sorry for all your loss. Better times ahead, chin up, that’s what they all tell me. And Happy Birthday also.

  4. Congratulations mrtony306 I’m so happy for you! Happy Birthday, and sorry for the loss of your parents.

  5. Congrats MrTony. Enjoy your month, I hope you feel better. This site helps many of us keep our minds busy. You are right about GSNAngel, she’s great. Hopefully she will help bring back Double-Oodle Days, I know you love winning them too.

      • Hi Donna and Vee, this is what I got back: “Based on the new Oodletunities of the past year or two (Dailybreak, increased game play promos, Oodles for ads, etc.), and other site events we are considering, we are not anticipating further double Oodles days at this time. However, we will keep you posted on other exciting updates!”

  6. Hi Tony,

    I am so sorry for the year and loss in 2013.

    I moved to Ga. About 11 yrs. Ago. Then in 2010 was injured and after two surgeries, I was told that my nerve damage was permanent. I could not be helped by additional surgeries.

    On the bright side
    I have tons of time to spend with my only grand daughter. I survive the pain with lyrical and fentanyl patches.

    I hope this year is bright and happy. Good Luck, Happy Birthday, and CONGRATULATIONS on your MVO award.

    Sincerely Cathy

    I’ve had the pleasure to visit Myrtle beach a few times, But can we say HOT ! Whew ! HOT !. Always something going on ~ lots of fun, the beach, the boardwalk, Broadway at the Beach.
    I’m sorry for your loss it is a void in our hearts and soul that is truly never complete again. …………

  11. Congrats MVDCF

    Welcome to our GSN MVO Family my dear friend. I’m so happy y’all were honored as MVO and the Godlen Oodle looks good on you.

    So sorry for the loss of your beloved parents. And the injury to your back. I know what it’s like to live with sever back issues and living with chronic pain, I’ve been there since 1988 car wreck. I’ll keep you in my thoughts and prayers for a good outcome from your next surgery.

    Take Good Care My Very Dear Friend

  12. Hey Tony – Sorry to hear about all the loss and pain you’ve endured over the past year. Here’s to better days ahead. I hope you find that special someone too. It’s so important to have companionship and your true soulmate. I am so blessed to have found mine. In the meantime, I hope your pain subsides and you focus on the positive. Remember the song…”Just what makes that little old ant think he can move that rubber tree plant”…

  13. Congats MrTony! This is ladye and I used to say hi, when I came to the chat room. I am still here doing the daily trivia and playing a game or two for fun at times, but not on as much since GSN Live was no more & tokens and more cash games appeared. I like doing it just for fun and trying to win a prize or two is one reason I’m still on GSN. Have a great rest of the month and sorry so late saying Congratualations, as I really just saw you were the MVO of June today! 🙂 God bless you and so sorry for your loss of your parents. Praying, for your health! 🙂

  14. Congratulations Mr Tony on being June’s MVO!!! May I say that Gold Oodle hanging around your neck becomes you! lol Enjoy your month Mr Tony! 🙂 Also Happy early Birthday to you!
    Sounds as though you have been through quite a bit…health wise and otherwise. Reading that you lost both of your parents within a few months of each other was heartbreaking. But sending good thoughts your way in hopes of a brighter and happier future for you.
    Last, but least, I’ll like to tell you the same thing I recently told my single son…” I know you don’t believe this right now, but there’s somebody out there somewhere who wants the same things in life that you do and shares the same dreams as you. Like you, she’s just waiting for you to come her life – and when you meet her, you’ll know it!” Forty nine years ago when I met my husband I knew I had met my soulmate. I was right. 🙂

  15. Congrats Tony! You truly deserve it and Happy belated Bday! You and I have a lot in common. I too lost both of parents last year. Stay Blessed!
