I was checking my Buddies point totals today, and it hit me! Let's see who has the best poker hand made up of your Total Points. Zeros absolutely don't count, except for the last digit of the point total, and the hand can go as high as the Buddies points.
*
A point total of 597,860 would be a 6 card straight. A point total of 678,095 would not be a straight, because the zero isn't in the last position. 6 of a kind, 7 carded straights, and more are possible.
*
For example, DenverDonJuan this morning has 2,525,225 points. That is 3 fives and four deuces. A beefy hand. Can you beat it?

Awww, glad to hear that the muffler is still functioning, and that you got your engine mount and hose repaired/replaced. It's always a surprise when you get out of the repair shop for less money and in less time than you'd expected! WooHoo!

And...YAY for kitty getting her abscess drained, and being on her way to feeling better! :)

Total points = 2,931,775.

7 or 6 numbers - Bewilderment(Odd, x2).
5 numbers - Odd(1,3,5,7,9).

[Good Thursday, all.

Nippor, the hissing sound was a collapsed vacuum hose, and not the muffler (Yea!). They also found the lower engine mount was history, and replaced it. Not as expensive as thought (Yea!), and didn't take very long at all. Waited for the parts, but that was the longest part of it. The car is a go for the road.

The real expense was taking the cat into the Vet. She had had a run in with another cat some time ago. We were monitoring her, since she had this bump on her left side that wasn't getting any better. It was an abscess, and the doctor couldn't pinpoint the cause. My wife thought it may have happened when she was attacked, but was a result of her trying to get away from the area. In any case, they drained the area, gave us pain and antibiotics to give to her this week. Hopefully she'll fully recover, and that is off my mind before leaving. It was $$$, but she's so cute when she sleeps... And Daddy loves her.]

GBTPP abhors the unending, unrelenting, unproductive, and uninspiring political ads that have polluted our airwaves for months. There is no end in sight, just a brief reprieve until next time. Voted early, and the pollsters were actually happy to have some business. GBTPP vows to remain neutral and a non political game.

How'd it go, DTM? Did you get out of the muffler shop with any credit left available on your account? Hope it went better than expected: less expensive, and didn't take as long as planned. (One can hope, right?)

5 numbers - Two Pair (9's and 5's, w/ a 2 nudge).

[Good Tuesday, all.

There are only a few types of Cobras that have the capability to spit, and they are native to Asia and Africa. More likely to see Tarantulas and Scorpions. Oh, wait. It's a purely defensive move, can be accurate to about ten feet, and can permanently blind a person or other animal. The venom is nasty stuff on sensitive eye tissues, but won't penetrate a person's unbroken skin.]

Nippor, it's just a little zero/Zero thing, but it can mean the difference between an "Oh, Yes!" and an "Oh, Crap!" hand. You've got it. It's just in the remembering.

It appears now that I'll be taking a "break" from the game starting Nov. 4th. Family concerns will make my participation somewhat inconsistent, and my return date isn't set yet. I'll communicate more details when I have them.

GBTPP appreciates just about all wildlife, from a distance. Not too close with many animals. In my youth, in a foreign country, had a spitting Cobra spit at me sitting in a taxi. Luckily for me the windows were rolled up. True story. I must have done something to irritate that snake. Never saw it again. It's time for those things that go bump in the night. Or bump back.

Nippor. I'll let you think about the hand's result. But am happy that your Sunday was sunny.

Had a glorious time at our friends' mountaintop view home yesterday. Got to see a tarantula walking across their driveway, and the menfolk saw another one while they were setting up bales of hay for their bow-n-arrow target-practice. Hubby let it walk on his gloved-hand, and even captured a great photo of it. That was our first time seeing tarantulas in their natural habitat. Beautiful creatures, altho a bit creepy if they were in an area that I wouldn't want them in, like...my bed!!! ;0

Nippor, Here's to a glorious view from your friend's place. Glad your technology is cooperating again.

Barb, Florida seems to be consumed with College Football this season. I only suspect this because selected SEC games are shown here. There is a lot of excitement at those games. That's good, people need things to be excited about.]
