Dinner was great. It’s just always amazing to me that it takes four hours to fix this turkey dinner, but in 15 minutes it’s eaten and time to do dishes. Still worth it though. And there is just nothing like those turkey sandwiches.
Jim watched a lot of football over the week-end. I read. We went to Church and then got to watch some more football.
Monday was Jeri’s birthday. According to her it was her 41st birthday. Works for me. We met up with her and Terry at Joe’s BBQ in Gilbert to celebrate her day. They are going to be leaving on Thursday to move to Q so we won’t see them again until January.
I need to apologize for the reflection in her glasses. She was helping me with my computer when I took the picture. Sorry about that Jeri. (She knows I’m not much of a photographer.)
Monday night I decided to take the plunge. They have cribbage night at the clubhouse here in the park. I have not played cribbage in about 30 years and Jim has never played so we were just going to go watch and learn. When we got there we found out they were one player short so I was drafted. Needless to say I slowed things down a bit and didn’t come close to winning. But I did win three hands which made me feel good. Jim and I are going to practice this week for next Monday. It really was fun. And yes we do have a cribbage board. Guess I may need to buy Jim one of these boards though.
Jeri's 41 hmmm? Let's see, that makes me...ReplyDelete
Cribbage is one of those games we play just enough to think we remember how but to never actually get good at playing. :)
Bad thing about going out for dinner on Thanksgiving, no leftovers for sandwichesReplyDelete
I used to love to play cribbage. Hard to play with only one person though. :(ReplyDelete
That fish board would go right with your decor!
That fish makes a nice board. I have never played but would like to learn.ReplyDelete
The fish board would make a great Christmas gift for Jim. Sounds like a nice Thanksgiving.ReplyDelete
Have never played it or even watched it being played. Maybe you can teach the dogs to play with youReplyDelete
OMG you are playing games. Yup, we play crib, or I play crib and Doug is learning.ReplyDelete
We have never played cribbage. Maybe we can learn this winter while in Mission.ReplyDelete
Glad you took the picture of Jeri. Yes, I think she looks maybe 41.
I have always enjoyed cards, maybe we should learn to play. We often play Gin.ReplyDelete
OK, So I'm now only realizing how often you guys eat out !! LOL That gets too expensive for my budget.ReplyDelete
Can't wait to see you guys again in January.
Nice of you to go out to dinner with that young lass, I didn't think she was even that old.ReplyDelete
Nice cribbage board but how do you get the fish smell off your hands?
Great looking crib board!ReplyDelete
I hope you learn to a lot about cribbage. We used to play but can't remember either so you'll get to show us how.ReplyDelete
playing crib is a camping staple at our campsite!..I am not very good..can't count the cards very well!!..lol..Doug is the expert!!ReplyDelete
I hereby challenge you to a cribbage game if we ever meet up!ReplyDelete
We are long-time cribbage players, but haven't played recently. Let's see --- 15 two, 15 four, and a double run of three makes twelve! Yup, still remember how to count.ReplyDelete
Now that is a crib board!ReplyDelete
We love cribbage and keep 2 or 3 boards in our rig at all times. We have our favorites, but some are good if you are playing with 3 or 4 people, so we need a *variety*... LOLReplyDelete

We actually have a cribbage board somewhere (I think in the shed back home with the left over motor home stuff) and I've played just enough to know that I really don't know how to play.ReplyDelete
Never had a chance to keep at it.
I wonder if they even have cribbage boards here? I've never thought to look. Hm, maybe tomorrow.
We have a couple of cribbage boards but we don't play...maybe someday.ReplyDelete
cribbage was always a game we played at the cottage, and one that taught us how to count when we were kids! LOVE that board!ReplyDelete
I've never played cribbage. I bet it's fun.ReplyDelete
One of my favorite card games, the reflection in the glasses could be a WINK, it's different, not poor photography, my opinion.ReplyDelete
Hi Sandie.....Oh those photos of those sweet pups when I stop here ALWAYS make me smile. Anyway....isn't it great meeting traveling friends....I'm thankful I met you.ReplyDelete
