ha! you said it so well, Bill :)

My cousin's daughter -- aged 5 -- went Dubai and got a board for herself...and back home, it took quite a time to learn the game -- and we in the 20s, 30s and 40s played :)

Hi Bill,

I saw this on Magnapoets. Sad, but amusing.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting.
