    Sorry to hear about your last party, I truly hope that things are much better for you now that you are 'out', at least you little grandson won't have to endured any 'mindblowing' get-togethers.

    I think I won because I think logically in terms of data sets and binary tree searches to keep cutting the number of possible solutions down

    Hey, I remember a JW party as a kid where we performed a freakin' drama! Yes, it was Boaz and Ruth! We had rehearsed it for a few weeks beforehand, made costumes, all the trimmings!

    I played the uncle or some dude on the threshing floor. Can't remember now, maybe it was the guy So-and-so! Yes, thats it.

    (I'm glad I wasn't called So-and-so in a Star Trek episode and I had to beam down to the planet with Spock, Kirk, Scottie and McCoy!)

    When all's said and done, I guess the drama was a bit of fun! The girls in the silky costumes were pretty cool!

    Yes, I know ... I'm so deranged I'm even starting to imagine I could be the reincarnation of Elvis, lol

    I can remember the scissors thing and something about spoons but not exactly what the 'rules' were ...

    Simon, you can't be the reincarnation of Elvis. Bob is.

    A game with cards and spoons. There was always ONE LESS spoon than there were eligible players.

    A card of a certain rank (say, seven, or jack) would be announced as the card for that round. As I remember it, people took turns laying down the cards from their hand, and then when the MAGIC card appeared, everyone grabbed for a spoon! The one person who didn't get a spoon was eliminated from the competition.

    Then one spoon would be removed, and another round would begin. This repeated until you got down to two players vying for one spoon.

    Or something like that.

    OMG, some of this is so funny it is sad!!! We always did pictionary, which was ok, but we also had to do the couples type of the newlywed game. My hubby and I lost big time! So did the other couple who were married forever like us, and also had 3 kids. My hubby and I swear that the ones who won, who by the way were so damn phoney , must have cheated. Yeah cheated, what man knows every little detail of his wife's favorite this or that? Those ex bethelites did. I think they were too in touch with their femine side. No offense intended here. But I hated those freaks to win, and then they would jump and clap and kiss if they got it right, puke!!!!!

    Latte, private email me where you're from if you would like. Witnesses from 3 circuits went to this skating place, so it's possible that I know people you know if you are from my area.

    Yes, ice skating. Xena, perfect description of the couples skate. It was exactly like that for me too.

    Ice skating! HEEEE!

    Once when my Cong. went ice-skating, one of the more 'dashing' young brothers decided to enter for the race they held in the middle of every skating evening amongst all the people at the rink, to see which of them could skate across the rink fastest, they had stopwatches and everything. They would all race across the ice as fast as they could, and the winner got a donut or something dumb like that But anyway, so all these young brothers are lined up on the one side of the rink, and an Elder shouts "GO!". The dashing young brother got a good start, was in the lead actually, when about a quarter of the way across the rink he slipped and fell HARD on his ass (I'm sure he broke SOMETHING). Thing is, he couldn't stop sliding 'cause he was going so fast! So he landed up sliding ALL THE WAY ACROSS THE RINK.

    Needless to say, his ass was a bet damp after that. That has to be one of the funniest things I've ever seen...all those sisters tittering at him too, he must have been BLOODY embarrassed! HEHE.

    It really is such an amazingly beautiful series of interlocking systems that comprise what a human is. It's too bad we're working backwards from the object code, everything would be simpler with the source and a comment or three thrown in.

    See what you females put us through?!?!

    We have to go around trying to impress all of you hoping that we don't fall on our ass in the process.

    If we DON'T do this, we don't stand a chance!

    It's a no-win situation!
