I logged on this morning and went to check my email. Among other things, Yet Another ad from Southwest Airlines advertising their current this-or-that special. Usually, those get discarded unopened; I have nowhere to fly that isn't already taken care of. But not fully awake yet, I click here instead of there, and the thing opens.

Their promotion is in a rectangular box, taller than it is wide, too tall to fill the window, and maybe 70% of the window in width. The text in the box is in black print, on a background of light blue, with maybe a hint of purple. And the microprocessor in the back of my head does some visual pattern-matching and springs into action.

It takes my concious mind a moment or two to realize that I have not stumbled across a Blue Diamond round.

I need help!

Yes, I think you need a break from those nasty WRs!

ROFLMAO -- I have not had that happen yet - nor have I, as I did when I began learning programming, had nightmares about being unable to solve a particular word (in programming another kind of program).

I pop in and play to break from the insanity of redoing a site and recoding over 100 sloppily coded HTML pages into something beautiful.

Thank you Kaufman, you have enabled me to proclaim that I do not yet have to join "Sploofus Anonymous' 10 Step Program" - not today anyway!

Blue Diamond??? What is this Blue Diamond thing you are all talking about? Have we got walnuts in here, something? What next? Pink Hearts? Green Clovers? I am confused?

Now Steve, lets head on back to the dementia unit ... You're holding up the "Metamucil and Lawrence Welk" hour.

No wonder I have never had a Blue Diamond in WRs, and only saw a Gold Screen once (I messed it up)! It seems that other WR addicts have gobbled 'em all up long before I got there!

I am still declaring myself to be El Supremo Presidente of the Gemless Club, and made it official by stating so on my profile till further notice!

May I nominate myself for the Secretary Treasurer of the No Bling club?

I have seen ONE nugget chance, and no gremlins, and NO diamonds.

El Supremo Bev, how do I apply for membership? I've never seen one, but don't doubt that they exist. I think I saw a UFO once.

Please send me an application posthaste!

Thank you!

That's me. I have only seen 1 nugget, but I did snag it. I ave never seen a Diamond and I haven't seen a Gremlin since AMC quit making them.

If I hit the middle of the screen by accident while doing a round the top of my screen goes blue, sort of a poor man's sapphire. I usually get all excited & flub the round. I'm thinking of starting a B.C. chapter of Sploofers Anonymous. My condolences to all blingless players.

I reckon I need a membership form for that one, too - never not seen nothin', blue, yellow, green or sky blue pink with purple polka dots.

I will gladly mail membership applications for the Sploofus Gemless Club to all who require 'em...please send any spare gold or blue trinkets to cover postage..........

Likewise still nada, nothing, zero, zilch, never seen, smelt, touched, heard or tasted even the tiniest sliver of a gold/blue screen/round..... I know they've only been around for a while - but I've been a member for 2 years now and play most days - and still diamond devoid and negligible on the nugget front. A kiss on the hand may be quite continental - but tactical nuclear weapons are a guy's best friend !
