Pinochle?!? I learned how to play that when I lived (temporarily) up in Missouri*. Shoot, there were a couple of road houses that would hold weekend tournaments ~ damn was that ever fun. Ya gotta know your partner, huh?

I'm not much for slots. I'll slouch over to 'em when I've burned my blackjack stash. Your strategy sounds a whole lot saner. Nana, if we ever hook up? We could bring those casinos to their friggin' knees.

*That reminds me, haven't seen Pirate in a while. Maybe put out an APB?
I always deserve it. Really.
