To respond to your comment on my blog, I know how to play Pitch, Pinocle, Hearts, several kinds of Solitare, and I once learned Canasta but I don't remember how to play anymore. I never did learn to play Bridge, but there was a story of my mom when she was in college, they were looking for a 4th for a Bridge game and she volunteered, not telling them that she didn't know how to play. She picked it up pretty quick, and she became one of the "go-to" women at her college when they needed a 4th.
My sister ONEKIDSMOM said you had asked about me, and that was a bit of motivation to get back on SP. I don't have my page private, so sometimes I get comments that I don't know where they come from, and I find that to be very cool.
