asked me to join
3 Day Quote Challenge.
Here is the third of
my 3 (Mon)Day Quotes.
In the late 60s early 70s every Sunday night
there was a pontoon game
(you may call it black jack, 21), or any other name.
However the basic strategy was the same.
The game alternated between our house
and some family friends.
We played for high stakes.
Each household had a jar of two-cent pieces.
Each player was allowed sixty cents of this money,
which was returned to said jar at the end of the night.
We played hard, enforced rules, made new ones
and argued incessantly.
When at our friends house the lady of the house
came out into her kitchen around 10 PM
to make us supper.
If chaos and mayhem were not in charge
we were having a quiet night.
It took me years to actually see what she meant by this
and since marrying MGW it has been used
on many occasion.
Although it has now been shortened to
‘…blind men and galloping horses…’
We both know what we mean and
I always remember a dear family friend.
