Time For Bed

Our new deck of Uno cards arrived today and Katie wanted to play, so Gretchen and I set out to play some three-handed Uno with her. It takes a certain amount of something to lose 14 consecutive hands to start the game, but that's what I did. I eventually scored on two hands, but it was pretty much a two-person race to the finish with me somewhere in the backstretch.

Ruby was not bothering us, it being a rather late game. She was lying in a chair in the family room with the television that we had left on. I walked in and said, "Ruby, time to go to bed." She walked over, nosed open the door to her kennel, and was lying there waiting as I brought over her bedtime treat.

One of us is well trained. I'm not sure which one.
