99 Bottles of Beer

This pattern is in the Coming Gallery.

Never been a drinker myself, but "99" begs for beer! 

I remember singing this all the way through just once--as a kid on a bus going to swimming lessons back in the late 60s.

Per Wikipedia: "99 Bottles of Beer is an anonymous sea shanty dating to the mid-20th century."

Four Aces

This pattern is in the Coming Gallery.

I grew up with card games.

As a kid I played... go fish . . . war . . . three different solitaires . . . contract rummy . . . 500 rummy . . . canasta . . . four kings in a corner . . . crazy eights . . . uno

Over the years with adult friends... screw your neighbor . . . pinochle . . . euchre . . . cribbage (grandma's fave)

On the computer...spider solitaire . . . freecell

Played once or twice... spoons . . . poker (never got into it!) . . . hearts . . . blackjack . . . slap jack . . . gin rummy

Too frightened to learn... bridge

And, for the past 10-15 years, we've been stuck on... hand and foot


What did you play?

Mary & Jesus

Gone Camping

This pattern is available for sale.

Never warmed up to camping, myself. (Well, not as a kid... as the oldest, every job seemed to come my way.) It rather appeals if it were just me and hubby, though :).

Update: After 30 years we finally did pull out the tent one last time and camped just one night in summer 2022. I didn't think it was too bad, but husband hated it. If we could have left the tent standing with a "free tent" sign on it, we would have. :D
