Community Game Night February 16th
it’s February already. That big blood red eclipse is history!
I did get to see it though, through my steep skylight, my not so
steep one was still covered with snow. So I had to squeeze up
close and look up through a very obtuse angle. To be honest, I
didn’t think it was very red, but what do I know. I do know
that we’re going to have another get together on the 16th for
another game night up at Sticks and Stones Farm. It will be
just a few days before this months full moon, so with the snow, it
will truly be bright outside if it’s a clear night. Stop on by
and spend some time with us playing games or just sitting by the
month it was so cold and windy that everyone kind of congregated in
the area around the wood stove. A couple of new families
joined us and we hope they all come back and bring some friends.
There has become a regular cribbage rivalry going on. I’ve
been able to keep up well enough but last month the cards just
weren’t very agreeable. Too many 19’s. All I can say is
at least I didn’t get skunked. We’ll keep trying. Home
rollin bowlin is always popular as there’s no limit to the number of
people who can play at one time. So we hope to see you there.
