After church today, I stopped at Mom and Dad's for dinner and an afternoon of playing table games. Dinner was good - chicken patties, cooked potatoes, vegetable, and homemade applesauce for the main course with apple tart and banana pudding for dessert. The first game we played after dinner was Upwards. Dad won. And after that we played Rummykub which I won just barely. Below are two pictures from the Upwards game.
In the above photo, Mom and Dad are pondering possible word plays. Dad's right arm is resting on the old Scrabble dictionary from which we find words that we would never think of or we find that what we thought was an acronym is actually accepted as a word on a rare occasion. The picture below was taken just before the last word was played. Words can intersect with other words up to five squares high and the higher the letter square the more points one earns.
