The perfect hand in Wausau...

From Wausau Daily Herald:

Christine Bremer Zoromski of Wausau called to tell us about her 81-year-old aunt's perfect cribbage hand. On Dec. 1, aunt Dorothy Canada of Schofield was playing cards with her two brothers, Jim Bremer, 74, of Schofield (Zoromski's father) and Elmer Bremer, 87, of Wausau.

Canada's hand contained three fives and the jack of clubs when the five of clubs was turned, yielding a perfect score of 29.

Zoromski said her father recalls having a perfect hand about 30 or 35 years ago, but that's the last any of her family has had one. The Bremer siblings usually play cribbage twice a week now, averaging 15 games a day.

"We've been playing forever. ... My dad remembers his parents playing (when he was) age 14," Zoromski said. "It's in our blood."
