It’s All Fun and Games

When the winter just drags on and on.
And your house is cold.
And you haven’t seen the sun for several days —

The thing to do
Is to find some kids… big kids and little kids

Light a fire in the wood stove
And sit around a kitchen table with drinks and lots of snacks
And play…Bingo

These two meant business.

There were prizes. Oh yes. Chocolate bars, hand soap, toothbrushes.  I was accused of picking  through my weekly shopping for the prizes but this was not true. I am nothing if not practical and who doesn’t need a toothbrush or some hand soap, for heaven’s sake?

We played Beetle Drive too!!

Yes. Come to our house because we know how to break up the winter blues.  I guarantee it.

  1. We used to play that ‘beetles’ game when we were kids. It was called Cooties, and you had to put together a plastic bug instead of drawing one. Nice that you can get everyone to stay in one place and play games. Turn off the phones, tablets, and computers for an evening.
