Card night at Solvang

Tullarbo has been left by human inhabitants for this season. Emil the cat, however, was not willing to move together with the other members of Maja´s family yesterday. He stayed the night hunting for some of the hundreds of Thrush birds ready to leave Norway for the season, made his visit to the cottage with a "mjau", took some dry food and left quickly again.We saw Emil a few seconds early this morning when we had breakfast at our stay-over after a Card Night together with Bitte and Terje at their cottage "Toppen".
Although I was ready to take the last round in the game, I ended last with this hand.
I also ended last overall in the Rummy tournament, but with good food and enough drinks I would say that a Saturday Card Night together with friends is something to go for again and again. And we will next time in October.

We play a variation of the Liverpool Rummy with only 5 rounds.

The requirements for each round of play are as follows:

* First - 2 sets (6 cards)
* Second - 1 set & 1 run (7 cards)
* Third - 2 runs (8 cards)
* Fourth - 3 sets (9 cards)
* Fifth - 2 sets & 1 run with no remaining cards in hand, no final discard
