Spidey Sense

The thing about Spider Solitaire is that it’s not easy. It requires careful observation, peripheral vision literally and metaphorically, and you have to consider all options even if nothing comes of it. It’s a puzzle. I like puzzles – jigsaw, crossword, kakuro… But you have to be wary when things start getting too good too fast. You can’t get caught off guard. You have to slow down, even stop if things are all working out amazingly swell. This card goes on top of that card and that finishes the run and closes out the deck and there are less and less cards on the screen, which is after all, the goal. But the game tries to lull you into false hope and tries to trick you and if you are not careful, you could run out of enough cards to continue the game and so you automatically lose. You may have to be one of us (gooba-gobble, gooba-gobble) Spider Solitaire fanatics to understand. Or not. My question is – does Spider Solitaire imitate life? Or does life imitate Spider Solitaire?

BTW – Things on the cancer front are moving along. Decisions still to be made, but surgery soon.

I know I used this picture not long ago, but I hear you out there saying “We just don’t see Max enough.”
