I am not smarter than a 5th grader, not my 5th grader at least.

Ok so this is where I'm going to have to admit how pathetic I actually am. While we were on vacation Tom & I did a lot of actual "relaxing". Laying around, reading books, just enjoying the silence. We had the laptop with us and I was determined to get myself more comfortable with Vista. So while poking around I came across a game called spider solitare. It's addictive. Each time I lost I was compelled to try again. And again. And again. (I can't believe I'm going to admit this) but I played something like 293 games and never won. So tonight I pull it up on my desk top PC and I play a couple games while listening to the new Ani cd (which is wonderful by the way). Pretty soon Dan pops up over my shoulder and starts to watch me play. Within like seconds he says "ok I think I understand how this works" and he proceeds to start directing my moves. Move after move it all fell into place and all of a sudden we (and I use that term losly as I was merly following his commands) WON! Seriously. I had played almost 300 games never even getting close to winning. Smarty pants plays the game once and wins. Dan's mind never ceases to amaze me!

By the way, I've run into a little techinical difficulty that is causing some delays in finishing my vacation photos, but soon, I promise!!!
