I grew up in Minnesota where my parents were avid cribbage players and anybody that dropped by the house almost always automaticallly played a few games over coffee while chatting/visiting. Well now that the Pup is in the garage it is time to get my wife to offically take up the game! She has balked at it in the past but from now on I will not take no for an answer! I can't think of a better way to wait out a summer shower in the pup and still keep your clothes on! BTW, when my Father passed years ago my Mom gave me his favorite cribbage board...nice keepsake in my eyes.
