The best score your teammate can get is 111 anywhere in the game.

And cases of those @#@#[email protected] 16oz bottles damn near killed us!

Thank all 7 gods that we don't have to search for 47 different size lids any more!

The third one reminds me of a line I heard a comedian say years ago: "You can tell how long a woman has been married by the style of Tupperware she has on the kitchen counter or brings to a potluck." So true. 60's: pastel bowls with translucent white covers; 70's: avocado/harvest gold/rust canisters with the ridged tops and gold insignia and all the goofy food-specific containers like a bacon keeper, lettuce keeper, hamburger patty keeper, celery keeper, etc. that took up tons of room in the fridge and cabinets; 80's: bright/dark colored harder plastic stuff and weird utensils like square and wedge shaped cake cutters for sheet and round cakes (in case you forgot how to use a knife). I lost track along about there.

ScoutC--I love that catalog of Tupperware by the decades!
