Hi Kathy! Well it seems I'm a "Go Fish"

You are playful and fun loving. You always like some friendly competition! You have good people skills, and you try to play fair. You remember that a game is just a game.

You love to be surprised, and you like to think that luck is on your side. You are whimsical and carefree. You have no problem asserting yourself, but you are never overly aggressive

You Are Poker
You are a gambler and a big dreamer. You think you'll hit the big time someday.
And while you do like to take risks, you like to believe you only take calculated ones.

You are quite wild, but deep down you're also a geek. Your mind is always churning.
You don't allow people to see the real you. You are good at masking your feelings.

You Are Solitaire
You are the type of person who prefers to turn inward. You tend to work out problems in your own.
You are mentally sharp, and you find it easy to understand complex concepts and theories.

You don't let your feelings get the best of you - you temper them with logic.
You could spend days alone entertaining yourself, and sometimes you do.

I am poker. Apparently Euchre wasn’t an option. I majored in Euchre in college. Actually it was a double major of Euchre and frisbee.

Hi Kathy. I did have a good day, but tomorrow will be better. Playing euchre with some friends after work.

By the way, thank you for hosting these threads. I enjoy just cutting up just for fun once in a while.

YOU ARE BRIDGE!



You are brilliant, shrewd and ruthless at the table!

You can intuit unerringly the motives and intent of your opponent from their initial bids.

You can smell a grand slam as soon as the cards are dispersed.

Your favorite opening bid? "Two No-Trump!"

You have endless patience – you know instinctively when to finesse and when not to. You play low in second place and high in third. You cross-ruff like a daemon. You end-run with the best of them. You always know when to execute a safety play. Blackwood and Fishbein are your semblables.

Most importantly, your bid is always honest – when you're dummy and your partner thanks you after you lay your hand down, he has no cause to regret it!

Above freezing during the day, lots of melting, but still freezing at night, so icy mornings.

Snowed all day today, but it didn’t stick.

Faithful To The Finish

April 24, 2013

After running 32 kilometers (20 miles) of the Salomon Kielder Marathon in Great Britain, a runner dropped out and rode a bus to a wooded area near the finish line. Then, he re-entered the race and claimed third prize. When officials questioned him, he stated that he stopped running because he was tired.

Many of us can relate to the exhaustion of a worn-out athlete as we run the race of the Christian faith. The book of Hebrews encourages us to “run with endurance the race that is set before us” (12:1). Running with endurance requires that we lay aside the sin that stands in our way and shed the weights that hold us back. We may even have to press on through persecution (2 Tim. 3:12).

To prevent weariness and discouragement in our souls (Heb. 12:3), the Bible urges us to focus on Christ. When we pay more attention to Him than to our struggles, we will notice Him running alongside us—supporting us when we stumble (2 Cor. 12:9) and encouraging us with His example (1 Peter 2:21-24). Keeping our eyes on “the author and finisher of our faith” (Heb. 12:2) will help us stay close to the source of our strength and remain faithful to the finish.

Turn your eyes upon Jesus,
Look full in His wonderful face;
And the things of earth will grow strangely dim
In the light of His glory and grace.
We can finish strong when we focus on Christ.

Read: Hebrews 12:1-4

Let us run with endurance the race that is set before us. —Hebrews 12:1
Bible in a Year:
2 Samuel 19-20; Luke 18:1-23

A few years ago, I spent 10 days on the Kenai Penensula. A cabin on a small lake near Soldotna. Spent half the time fishing, the other half touring. Took 250 lbs halibut & salmon home. One of the best trips I ever took. May go back a ride the railroad.

THE TORCH IS PASSED



“Let the word go forth from this time and place, to friend and foe alike, that the torch has been passed to a new generation of Americans - born in this century, tempered by war, disciplined by a hard and bitter peace, proud of our ancient heritage - and unwilling to witness or permit the slow undoing of those human rights to which this nation has always been committed, and to which we are committed today at home and around the world. Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and the success of liberty.”

President John F. Kennedy - 20Jan1961

You Are Bridge
You are a thoughtful and conscientious person. In fact, you're a bit of a brainiac.
You get a real thrill from mastering difficult tasks. You get bored if you aren't being challenged.

You are competitive, but you aren't a sore loser. You take a rational approach to competition.
You work hard, and you're persistent. You don't expect to be a natural at anything.

In my undergrad days, I majored in English Lit. - had everything for a double major in History - except I didn't take one of their rinky-dink core courses. So I settled for a double major in Bridge. I think I pissed the head of the History Department off when I dropped his course "American Intellectual History" so that I could play Bridge from 1:00 to 2:30 pm in the Student Union rather than listen to his ridiculous left-wing reflections on why American street names were determined and other useless trivia. This jackass actually ruminated on the supposed "found under carnal knowledge" derivation of the F-bomb.

I played Bridge and his idiotic course interfered with it. I saw my duty and discharged it, as always! 'Nuff said!
