Its been a long time since Ive played cards. I think the last time I did I taught my wife, my daughter, my son-in-law and his parents how to play pinochle. I think we only played once. My daughter used some kind of, Im eight months pregnant, and my feet swell up, excuse. She also made vague references to having a pregnant brain. Since grandbaby number three, Ellason, has been born she just says she is too tired. How can you ever be too tired to play cards?

What got me to thinking about all this card stuff was a delightful interview with Phyllis Mullins and Ann Bush about the Colorado City/Rye Bridge Club. (See story on page 5.

Ive always been interested in learning to play bridge but they play on Wednesday and it would be a little hard to bid five spades and get the newspaper out at the same time.

We grew up playing cards in my family. We played a lot of 10 pt. pitch, a game called Nellow, a game called 500, some hearts, spades, etc. Dad and my uncles, aunts, in-laws and out-laws all played cards.
