#70681 05/21/02 10:21 PM I don't know who your PM buddies are (oh, glad to see you back! You had announced you were leaving?) but a lot of us do play bridge and discuss words and have fun in other venues.
happy that your baby has gotten over the virus,

The taking of all the hearts and the Queen of Spades in the game "Hearts". Instead of a large penalty you get a bonus of (I think) 26 points.
Now to the point of this reply. In my young days we called this game "Rickety Kate" (yes, my ultra-long-term memory still works reasonably well). This was a reference to the Queen of Spades, and I would love to know why.
#70684 05/21/02 11:03 PM So how's your baby? What was the diagnosis?
#70685 05/21/02 11:06 PM OK, who's the Joker?
Not playing with a full deck.
#70686 05/21/02 11:31 PM Yes, ewein, how is your baby doing? And your father-in-law? Has his shortness of breath resolved itself?
#70687 05/22/02 12:06 AM Do we always have to have the same kind of trail mix?
#70688 05/22/02 12:38 AM I'm not a card player, but I'd guess that "it suits me" comes from cards, and not from The Emporer's New Clothes.
#70689 05/22/02 01:13 AM not from The Emporer's New Clothes.
Nice one, Geoff. Eloquent in its subtlety.
