We had breakfast at IHOP yesterday (really, Really, REALLY like their new Simple & Fit menu items) and Stu was playing with the peg game (similar to the one at Cracker Barrel).
It made me think about the one my dad had when we were growing up. Black plastic base, white pegs (flat on top and bottom) with a clear lid that would hold the pegs as you took them out. It was a more traditional pattern...looked similar to this image I found.
We then started talking about board games we played as kids. Number one was Monopoly, followed by Sorry, Chinese Checkers, Clue, Parchesi, Battleship.... Of course we also played Checkers, Cribbage, Old Maid, Go Fish and many others.
I had a summer house visitor in the cottage behind my house...Janet was her name. We would play Monopoly for days...leaving it set up on the floor and coming back to it every day. LOL! I can picture it in my mind...we were best friends every summer until we moved from Mass to NH. I don't remember her last name or where she lived the rest of the year (Duxbury used to have many, many summer homes/cottages). Wonder if she remembers it as well as I do?
What was your favorite childhood game? When was the last time you played it? The last for me was playing Sorry with my granddaughters in Atlanta...they were BRUTAL! LOL!
No much else new here...we're recouping from our time in Orlando and Sadie is recouping from her doggie camp. I couldn't even stay awake through the Super Bowl and I slept 10 hours. Time to get off my butt and ride the bicycle!!
Tomorrow Sadie gets spayed and micro-shipped, we'll probably hit a few stores and take in a movie I think.
Till next time - keep on rollin',
Donna and Stu
