The Phone Rang ...

It was James calling to say hi from Fort Leonard Wood, MO. In the course of our visit Joyce mentioned that she and I had been playing Scrabble. James inquired, "So who won?"

I confessed, "I did."

"Dad, you've just got to quit beating your wife."

UPDATE, October 27th: James will be relieved to know that his poor little battered mother thoroughly bloodied me tonight --- 292 to 251.

And in less than fifty minutes ! It was getting late, having supped with birthday boy. But, I knew you needed a game of Scrabble to help you relax for bed. It just isn't a fitting end of the day or afternoon without a good game of Scrabble.

Ha! My husband and I used to play Sequence. I highly recommend it.

(Go Joyce!)
