CONGRATULATIONS to RAY MIELBRECHT! Ray earned Grass Roots Points AND took First Place today! Ray won SEVEN of his games today. Very impressive scorecard!
FOUR players earned Grass Roots Points today. Ray, Mike, Cindy, and Steve!
JULIA BICK was the first one to grab THE CHICKEN today, but again, that fowl quickly flew the coop, and briefly found itself in Cindy's hands, but she couldn't hang onto it, and Steve snatched it up, only to lose it in the end to me.
Today's DIRECTOR'S AWARD was the Raggedy Andy (6-7-8-2-2), and it got claimed by Julia.
The RAGGEDY JULIA finally got claimed today by JIM RANSTROM. That pot had grown over a three week period to $22! (See me next week for the balance ($17) of your winnings Jim.)
Playing against Steve Wennstrom, JULIA BICK was holding three 5's and the Jack of the missing 5, and she swallowed hard as the turn-up card was revealed. Alas it was NOT the missing 5, which would have given Julia THE PERFECT CRIBBAGE HAND.....29!
It was Julia who spoiled HARLEY MIEDEMA's "string-of-pearls" today. And the closest game of the day was between Jim and Harley, when Jim left Harley sitting in the stink hole. Ouch!
And finally, although she didn't earn Grass Roots Points today, it should be noted that ARLYN TEED won over HALF of her games todays.
It was much too nice today to be indoors playing cribbage, but I remind myself about all those cancer-causing rays I avoided!
