Gint-A-Cuffs V: Packs 21-24, in which the rug is pulled out from under me

It breaks your heart. It is designed to break your heart. The game begins in the spring, when everything else begins again, and it blossoms in the summer, filling the afternoons and evenings, and then as soon as the chill rains come, it stops and leaves you to face the fall alone."

Worst last pack ever.....keeps my 5 year streak alive of not breaking 200.  This reminds of the time when I played Rummy 500, got to 495 and the managed to be stuck there for 4 straight wins as I was overtaken.

Gint-A-Cuffs, you win again.....curse you.
