Greetings, Thank you for posting, brought back, fond memories. Keshgrammy

I do recall, as a child, a #18, lead to, a #16, which, you may end up, with, a #4, with a final loss of #14, while, the on-lookers, thought it was, a #13.

Greetings oma, Old Keshgrammy, owes you a codebreaker badge.

As a child, getting the notion/idea, of being a bit bold/cutting-up, you could end up hearing, "go get me spoon," which might lead to no tea/supper (surely no sweet), early to bed, while the others, thought it was a gas/funny/laugh, (glad it wasn't them & hoping for your sweet).
