wordful wednesday: you're never to old to.....

share a laugh and a cuddle with your grandma

my parents have been visiting for the past 5 days and miss 20 (almost 21!) and her boyfriend came over for dinner on sunday night (a big fat ROAST!) we had 9 around the dinner table.

love that.

after dinner we played cards (another post)  we managed to NOT scare new boyfriend off after playing cards.  previous players to join our card table (then beat a hasty retreat) include tara and miss 18's boyfriend.

their parting comments went something like this:

"you're mean when you play cards!"

"this is too intense!"

well, if ya can't handle the heat.....

meanwhile back at the ipad, i'm almost wishing i hadn't shown my parents how to play scrabble on said ipad.  for the past 5 days all i've heard is utterances about 'it' or 'they' (the corporate baddies hiding in the battery pack maybe?) won't accept my word!

refusing to use the dictionary, i think they enjoy doing battle with the computer.

on the issue of the word 'trojan' however, i must take their side.
although it's a well-known brand name, i do believe the greeks came up with the idea first, but scrabble would have none of it.

Cuddles are good.

Love it!

And card playing is meant to be mean, am I right? hehe

Absolutely right...and when you're even older you miss them all the more!

Trojan - proper noun, not allowed in Scrabble! Also, all players must agree on which make of dictionary is to be consulted before play begins. Don't mess with the Scrabble Queen!!
