    have the first 20 or 30 (or 60) years of your life, is now a cause for
    panic and you turn around to go and get it.

    • Mumber 9 was a "gotcha", I didn't notice, and I did scroll back.

      I haven't played solitaire with real cards in years.

      I do call on the cell phone from the driveway for help unloading the car.
