What a night! Three games and five Yahtzees for me! It turned out to be Yahtzee night because all five players won Yahtzees, but I was the only FIVE winner! That Hotzee there in the blue is ME = the Winner.
In the top picture are Karen, my sister, and a long time family friend, Bobby; in the bottom picture are Paul and Shariol, friends from college days but meeting again after fifty-three years. Paul is my brother-in-law. widower of my sister, Verna.
The four are widows and widowers who decided to meet at Karen’s house. To keep everything above board, I was invited as a fifth wheel in case there were gossipers who needed a brand new subject to gossip about. 😀
Okay, that wasn’t the only reason I was invited; I was invited because they wanted me! And they know my husband is a dilly who doesn’t mind doing his own cooking for five days. They thought they were getting a referee; instead they got someone to beat them at Yahtzee! I sure hope we get to have another five days or so before too much longer. Old friends, new food, and daily fun! Christians all who have common values. Four people who are having to cope with being left behind while their “forever loves” went on to Heaven without them. But all finding hope in the Lord.
Right now my Sammy is spending the day at the Center; it is quiet in here. My mind is on blogging, content to know he will soon be home. We are the “old folks” in the bunch by eight or ten years. And I am turning to a new year. Beginning tomorrow I will be doing something I’ve never done before, finding out how great it is to be eighty-six!
