So, when I was younger, my father tried to impart worldly wisdom upon me by singing the refrain to "The Gambler". ("Know when to hold 'em...").

And now in my 50's, I find myself wondering, just what _does_ it mean in life to
"Never count your money when you're sitting at the table. There'll be time enough for counting when the dealing's done." Looking back on my dad's life, I think maybe if he'd counted the cost while still in the game, things would have turned out better.
