Friday Night Fun


Friday night we were the last minute substitution for a couple that couldn't attend Bunco at our daughters. It was a good excuse to have her cook for us, and to spend some time with their friends. Far Guy had never played Bunco before, he found it entertaining. Bunco is a dice game, played with three dice, you roll designated numbers and if you get all three dice to roll the same number it is a Bunco! I love the fast pace of the game..not much time for visiting.  I hit a winning streak and spent the last six turns with the same partner, a Dutch fellow who I am certain thinks I am a bit nuts.  I won..Jen gave out prizes..a Movie Night complete with a DVD ( Zombieland.. a comedy) and enough candy to start my own concession stand. Far Guy won too..he had the most wipe outs..that is when you get three dice that match but not the number you were seeking for a bunco..he got Gourmet M and M's.  I am a pretty competitive person, I love games, and needlesss to say I can really get into the rolling of the dice!
 Far Guy, Chance,  Miney and Elvis..

Of course, Chance went along..he did pretty good with the new puppy Elvis. Little Elvis is growing. I am not real high on his popularity list..he is fourteen weeks old now. and needs to be put on the leash everyday..so I put the leash on him..he is pretty stubborn.. he just sat there looking pathetic..until my son in law rescued him.  I think perhaps Elvis is pretty spoiled. He seems to be a gentle little guy, he doesn't even bite your fingers or toes very hard..he has a soft mouth. Far Guy of course is very popular..Miney loves him most of all..it is sickening..she could almost be his dog..in fact he says that she is really his and that she is just living with these other people for the moment:)


Grandson Adam and Elvis.  Elvis is a Shetland Sheepdog or a Sheltie. He is a tri-color..black, white and sable.

  2. You are a Bunco queen! I have never played, but it sounds like fun. Far Guy is a real dog magnet. They all love him. That is a sweet photo of Adam and Elvis. Elvis is really getting big. When Elvis first arrived Miney wasn't too certain about him, but it sounds like he has really charmed his way in now.

  3. Bunco sounds like fun, we'll have to play it in our house. Is there any certain rules we need to know?

  4. So you are competitive? Who would have thought? I am so surprised (NOT!). What great picture, BTW. I love the last one, showing Adam holding the growing Elvis, belly and all. I am not a game player myself and usually beg off unless it's scrabble.

  5. Is Gene sharing candy? Elvis is so cute, and so is Adam.

  6. Oh how fun! Far guy is liable to get hooked on this game! We used to have monthly Pinochle card games and I loved them....now its hard to find anyone who knows how to play it.

  12. Aw, Elvis is adorable! But still - pups need a firm hand so that they don't become impossible later on.

  13. That is one game I have never heard of but I like the prizes. Elvis is growing but is still small compared to our grown dogs.
