Dying Man’s Daily Journal – A nice neighbor

I had a very pleasant couple of hours Monday morning. I went across the street and had 3 games of crib with our neighbor Paul. I have written in the past about my dear Aunt Isabel and of how when she visits we play a lot of crib. At some point through her visit we will sit down to play for “the championship of the world”. We both have a lot of fun with all of our “big talk” of how we are going to beat each other. Winning or loosing doesn’t even really matter for that “official tournament” it is the back and forth banter, I love it. Now I say the winning or loosing doesn’t matter and it doesn’t or could it be that I seem to have lost each and every one of our championships. lol. Yup, Aunt Isabel has taken the championship title home with her each and every time.

Well I have a new secret weapon for our next tournament and that would be Paul. Now let’s just put it this way. One of us won all three games, the first was a skunk, the second a near skunk and the third just a sound thrashing. OK, I admit it, I came back across the street head hanging low with my tail between my legs lol. Paul I thank you for the good games. I would like to be able to say I took it easy on you but we both know that actually wouldn’t be true, geesh, what can I say.

All I can say is Paul I look forward to our next chance to play and you had better be nice to me or I will be sending Aunt Isabel over

    What fun Bill…..you make me laugh, which is good for my health right. We are going to Phoenix in November to join my husband’s brother and sister-in-law for two weeks. Now my sister-in-law loves to play crib, so I imagine there will be plenty of that going on in the evenings. I personally am not that crazy about playing cards and am not good at it, but will participate anyway. So Bill if you ever want to be champion I think I would be a good one to share a game with. lol
