    Had a wonderful weekend! Both kids brought the grandkids for a Valentine's weekend visit. Tula taught Everett and I how to play UNO. They also went to the beach early Sunday morning while Nana showered and got her act together, since I just can't be up and at it at 5 a.m. like they are. The goodbyes are hard and the house is sadly quiet now. I'm in recovery mode.

    Hope everyone is doing okay. Special prayers for you, Sunshine & Laz.

    A few pics from the weekend.

    Cuties for sure! Both of them. I wouldn’t be any fun - I don’t even know what UNO is. Sure glad Nana knows how to play. Tula looks just like a little smart girl who would know everything.

    Glad you had both of them for Valentines.

    Great photos, nuthatch/Joan! Imagine being on a beach in mid-February making sand sculptures--those kids will remember this time for the rest of their lives.

    Virginia, I don't know much about Uno either but some people in this building play it--I believe it involves dice?

    Thank you for the delightful pictures, Nuthatch!

    Virginia, UNO is a card game. You win when you have Uno (one) card left.

    Oh, I do remember hearing people talking about Uno now that ya'll remind me what it is. I guess it is for all ages. I bet Tula and Everett had a good time playing with Nana.

    I remember seeing it in stores, but never saw the contents, or know how it was played.

    It's played with a special deck of cards. I don't know why I thought it was dice.

    People here play games in the community room, right down the hall from me, and often I hear the dice rolling. There is some game they often play that is played with dice--I think it's bunco-- but I've heard Uno mentioned too. Mainly they play bingo.

    nuthatch ~

    Your grandchildren are pure sweetness and light. Such lovely photos. Thank you for sharing them with us. They lift my heart.

    UNO ~

    We first started playing UNO during grad school at parties. It's more fun with a group of players.

    It's been so long since I've played any card game. I used to play Bridge and Gin Rummy. I can't remember the rules for any of them. Or for Monopoly or Chinese Checkers. Now we have on line games.

    Ah ... the good ol' days ... when people physically gathered to play cards or a board game, looked at each other, talked to each other, laughed with each other, ate and drank together.

    Sigh ...

    Love & Light,
