Did anything good happen this Christmas?

Clip to ScrapBook #1

I have not played Scrabble since I was a kid. We played on Christmas night. Oh, I was not usually good at it either.
I came up with a word that connected making another, getting massive points, but knowing I was leaving a word wide open for big points.
I didn't have the consonant needed to stop it. It was the word "ailed", but it sat on a triple word score and double letter score and made another word going across that was worth a lot .

My dad was a few turns away, but I saw the twinkle in his eye. I could tell he was just holding 1 square and knew he could play off of it. He used to play Poker pretty well, but he has lost his poker face.
When it was his turn, he smiled and put a J on ailed ( down) making it worth a lot more points b/c the J sat on some other word going across.

He is very old, but always jokes he is still : Tarp as shacks!

That move made it so he kicked all our butts in the game!!!
It made it pretty darn cool!
