For those who keep seeing the how ya doin"-I just wanted to clarify something-there is a commercial out-some men are in a bar and usully walk in and say "How ya doin" the usual response is just a nod or a "how ya doin' back-well,one guy from outta town is sitting there and when asked "How ya doin'-he come outs with a southern accent "Well Im just doing fine,my brother-in-law just opicked me up and the people here are so friendly and blah blah blah-so, the next fellow who comes in and says "How ya doing',everyone waves there hands like "No. dont ask him!" ha ah ah-tooooo funny! Thants all!

Carol, for years I made it a point to do exactly that to anyone who approached me for a game and led off with "How ya doin'?" Before he could even blurt out what he wanted to play and/or for how much, I was into my marriage, career, family and whatever else would occur to me. Watching the would-be hustlers' expressions change - I could do this with a straight face - was well worth the effort. Usually they'd end up cutting me off with, "You don't wanna play at all, do ya?" To which I would respond, "Nah." GF
