Jacks! I love 'em!! I played them as a kid and could really kick-butt.
I taught my oldest granddaughters how to play and now they kick my butt!
We play an hour before it's time for me to catch my flight back to California.
It makes a sad time a little happier for me. (Unless I lose.)
It's such a family tradition now, that they even bought me a Jacks necklace!
(It came in that special little 'blue' box!! Woohoo!!:)
Unfortunately, the oldest one couldn't play this time, because she had a guitar lesson.
So she said. The next time I'm smelling her breath for powdered sugar.
Actually, now that I look at it, it's a little on the devious side. Hmmm.
(There's a sucker born every minute.)
One... one... one...
one... one... one.
Two... two... two...
That smile was short-lived.
Concentrate on that ball!
Getting down to business now!
Another round for the kid.
Jacks. Such a fast-moving game!!
A few more photos of the rest of the family and myself, and off to the airport I went.
But I'll be back soon for another game! (Don't practice, guys!!)
And since I know my younger grandchildren are reading this...
I promise to teach you how to play, as soon as you get a little older!
(So you can kick my butt too.)
There are SO many things to love!
I love "Followers" and comments too!
Signing off for now,
