I played my first game of pinochle last night, and while I had the best teachers in the world, and much credit must go to them (thanks LOML and Mickey), I'd like to humbly say that I ROCK AT PINOCHLE! I won the very first game I played (practice games don't count, right???) and had a blast. We're playing again tonight, and I think we may have a brand new addiction on our hands, ladies and gentlemen. Ah, the melding, the bidding, the tricks. Oh, My!
