It's Back...

With the warmer weather and rain around Christmas all of our snow had melted. Well, Good Morning, it returned over night. Big fluffy snow, the kind that looks so pretty but piles up fast.
An hour ago when this picture was taken we had 8 inches and now there's another inch out there. It's not going to snow all day though. Phew.
We all played B-I-N-G-O last night with my middle sister who plays every week and we all won N-O-T-H-I-N-G except for my ten year old nephew!! He won fifty bucks!! He was so cute when he won. As for me, I'm slightly bingo challenged. I have to concentrate very hard, I can't talk to anyone, I can't watch the monitor, I have to listen to the caller only. Please don't say other numbers out loud or it will screw me up. Even then it's a crap shoot getting all the numbers. Good thing hubby was watching my boards last night as I missed a few a couple times. Geez. How do senior citizens do it? But I think I could get addicted to bingo except for the cigarette smoke. Last night while waiting for bingo to start I did some bingo dauber art on my paper bag and left a message for the next person who gets it. "This is a lucky bag" but it really wasn't at least not for me.
This kid's dauber art is much better than mine.
I need to refine my technique.

When I looked on line for a picture of a bingo dauber I found sites full of bingo paraphernalia. Who knew you could get bingo bracelets...

or Elvis bingo daubers. Betty Boop was the most popular.
I don't know why, did she play bingo?
I'm not that old, she was before my time.

I'm pretty sure that this bingo bag doesn't come with the luck included.

For the serious bingo player, a seat cushion.

Or maybe for the bingo player with hemorrhoids or with a bony butt.

Ticket holders. For those of you that can't keep track of your winning ticket. I would need one of these as I lost the cap to my sisters brand new purple bingo dauber. We finally found it at the bottom of the garbage bag with the used paper bingo boards.


I'd like to wish all a healthy, happy, safe and prosperous 2009.

May your new year be filled with success in all of your endeavors

and may all of your goals be met.

Thank you to all that have stopped by A Summer's Day and to those that left me comments too! You know how bloggers love comments.
Here's to more in the new year!!
