[12:34:18] <cmn32480> bytram - yes. On purpose. Electric bill has been a lot more than expected this winter.... so I either cut folding or cut the heat to the house.
[12:34:41] <Bytram> move the computer to the living room? j/k
[12:34:46] <Bytram> I totally understand
[12:34:59] <Bytram> just wanted to let you know just in case it was NOT intentiona
[12:35:16] <Bytram> btw, how ya been?

[12:36:43] <Bytram> hope the latest issues with Cisco devices has not caused you any headaches
[12:36:56] <cmn32480> not really
[12:36:58] <cmn32480> how you been?
[12:37:44] <Bytram> now thatthe days are getting longer, and the crazy-hours holiday season is behind me, muchbetter, though I am still trying to shake some kind of bug I picked up in mid december
[12:38:01] <cmn32480> yick
[12:38:05] <cmn32480> sorry to hear that
[12:38:41] <Bytram> well, compared to LAST year when I was in the hospital for nealry a week... I'l take this one, tyvm!
[12:38:51] <cmn32480> touche
[12:39:05] <Bytram> life is so much more about attitude than circumstances
[12:39:19] <Bytram> it's how well can Iplay the cards that life has dealt me.
[12:41:02] <cmn32480> agreed
[12:41:08] <cmn32480> just hope you don't ahve to draw 5
[12:41:18] <Bytram> nod nod
[12:41:23] <Bytram> everplay cribbage?
[12:41:52] <Bytram> there are some hands that need only a glance and it is *obvious* what to do, you're gonna get some monster points...
[12:42:29] <Bytram> and others where I look at it and say... ugh. Maybe, just maybe, if I get lucky, I might be able to peg a point or two, and if I get really lucky the flip card might get me a pair
[12:42:49] <cmn32480> never been a card p[layer
[12:42:53] <cmn32480> other than War.
[12:42:54] <Bytram> at times like THAT I ask the other player for input after the hand
[12:42:58] <cmn32480> and Grandma used to cheat
[12:43:32] <Bytram> often times, they look at it and say, yup you ain't got much there. I'd do just what you did. or... I dunno, I might have done xxx, but there just isn't much there.
[12:44:07] <Bytram> at times like that, I know it's not *me*, it's just that I had a poor starting position and I *did* do the best one could hope for in those situations
[12:44:28] <cmn32480> it si all you can hope for
[12:44:28] <Bytram> it's not whether you win or lose, it's how you play the game... makes much more sense in cases like that.
[12:44:45] <cmn32480> [but we'd all still like to win
[12:44:49] <Bytram> I did the best I could, with what I had, with where I was at, at the time.
[12:45:24] <Bytram> well, it's nice, yes. But there are times when I got skunked, and yet I had a great time just watching the play run it's course. I was happy for the other guy.
