Have you played Dutch Blitz?  The card game created by and for the Amish who didn’t want to use playing cards?  As the box says, it’s a “vonderful goot game” and it’s one of our favorites. 

dsc05299-1.JPGWe were playing with our neighbors the other week, and this was my opening hand.  I was so excited that I had to take a picture of it. 

It reminded me of the time that Tim M. rolled five 6’s in greedy, just after we all decided that we didn’t need to know how many points it was worth since it would never happen.dsc05264-1.JPG 

Or the time we were playing Texas Hold ‘Em in the airport (big stakes as you can see, shreds of paper and candy) and there were three jacks on the flop. 

Sometimes life is funny that way.

That’s all I’ve got for now.
