Ruby and I have been playing cribbage together since early in 2007. Usually she wins – lots of times I get skunked, and now and again she’s double-skunked me. I don’t know how many games we’ve played in all that time, but I know how many times I’ve beaten her.

Twice. Twice.

One of those two times was tonight.

And tonight I. Skunked. Ruby.

If it weren’t a Sunday, I’d have bought beer by now, to celebrate. A whole case of beer.

Anyway, here’s what I caught…
