Fun & Games
My friend Robin is a card fanatic. His game of choice is Rummy, but he’ll play Hearts for old time’s sake if needed. His wife Gayle doesn’t like cards, leaving Robin to pester 3 additional people at a time to make up a foursome.
Therefore, I want him to learn cribbage, which requires only 2 people and is sufficiently competitive. I have my own cribbage board, but I was happy to find a folding cribbage board with all 6 pegs in the hidden cavity on the underside. Now if he does learn to play, I have a cribbage board with which to reward him!
As for myself, I keep trying weakly and with little success to learn to read Tarot cards.
I’ve collected dozens of Tarot decks over the years for their artwork, but my brain is like a colander – info flows in and info flows right out again (taking some dirt with it, I hope). This deck has keywords for each card, which — who knows? — might just do the trick. (Of course I counted to make sure all 78 cards were there, because some clueless people actually donate broken items, or those with key elements missing. Buyer beware!)
Pickin’s were slim at the Hospice Thrift store yesterday. Still, while the big scores are exciting, so are days like yesterday, when thrifting is just for “fun & games.” And I certainly got my $2.83 worth of browsing entertainment.
