    • Watch out for that Bob, Chrissy. I wouldn’t say she cheats, but I’m pretty sure she uses unfair psychological warfare. 😉

        :o) The truth is … I’m clobbering her in one of the other two games we’ve got going and I think we’re tied in the third. I just wanted to brag on her getting three Bingos, cuz it’s a Very Big Deal at the level we play at … soooo not Tournament Level where multiple Bingos per game are the norm and players don’t cheat by using http://wordhints.com/ LOL.

        But now that you mention it … sometimes she doesn’t put any remarks in the comment box for turns and turns! I thought she was just too busy working her strategy and googling for some word that would blow me off the board. But maybe she’s using it as an online version of glaring-across-the-board stink eye to throw me off my game! ::giggle::
