Default Idea for Christmas present

I'm sure there must be members looking for something to make for a Christmas present. Here is a project that I posted some years ago that may be of interest.

Harry, my cousin and I had plastic games like that. We got to where we could go through it and end up with one peg in the center. It got so boring that we would time ourselves to see who could solve the puzzle the fastest. Still have mine- should be an antique now. That is a nice game, Harry. Will put it on the list.

You jump like Chinese checkers, clearing each side and, hopefully, end up with one piece in the center. There is a pattern that my cousin and I found- works every time. Sort of like the golf tee game at Cracker Barrel.

Fill the board with marbles except for the centre hole then each time you overtake one you remove it and continue to do this until there is just one left and that has to be in the centre hole. It isn't easy but it certainly can be done as mentioned by John.

Centre? Harry, where is that?
When I was in seminary, there was a grad student from Australia who spoke at our chapel service. He said the Americans and Australians were two separate cultures separated by a common language.

Centre is next to metre (the spelling the inventors gave it), and it's on the way to kilometre. Now that you know is there another favour I can do for you?

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.
