I think in Albemarle was when we started table games, Parcheesi, Sorry and the complicated one, Monopoly. That is a bad game for a devious boy. I always stole from the bank when I played with Shirl. Remember passing GO you collected $200, I usually collected $300 or $400 (we operated the bank on the honor system and my honor wasn’t too good!). I remember the names were pronounced in Southerneze. Especially the chance card that read ‘ take a ride on the Reading RR if you pass go collect $200’. WE said it like it was printed, like you read a book. Who in the name of common sense would have thought it was ‘Redin’ RR. Y’all from Pennsylvania have a rough time with pronunciations.
About 8-9yrs old, skating was big. I know you remember the steel wheels and skate keys. AT nine I was playing marbles.
Sherry taught me Spin the bottle and Post office (what did we do in the post office game, I forgot?)
Did you have a favorite game?
Thanks for coming this way.
A foolish husband says to his wife, "Honey, you stick to the washin', ironin', cookin' and scrubbin'. No wife of mine is gonna "work"."
Sherry wanted to marry a military man - he could cook, sew, and make beds and was in good health, and he was already used to taking orders.
