I'm addicted to Words with Friends!

If you've known me for a very long time you know I love the game of Scrabble. Unfortunately, my hubby Woody is dyslexic and has trouble spelling anything! Recently I've discovered Words with Friends on facebook. It's an interactive Scrabble game! I've been playing with my sister-in-law...she of the same who made me join a bowling league in 1978! Yes, Juanita...I remember to this day getting a trophy for my high game of 155!! Needless to say the only time I've bowled since 1978 was once for a fundraiser and once very late in Las Vegas...or maybe I should say very early in Las Vegas. But I digress! Our family has always loved games and often played when the kiddos were younger...I'm hoping that soon we can play Candyland with Savannah...we love playing Uno with Riley! So my tip for today is...Playing games can stimulate your brain and put off mental decline, maybe dementia...and it's also lots of fun. Games can be online or around the table. Games are really fun with children and grandchildren and leads to lots of great memories that will outlast any "purchase" you might make for them! So go play! You are never too old to play.

A quick update on the wrist...the wrist doesn't hurt but I am afraid I've done some tendon or ligament damage...lots of numbness and sharp shooting pains...oh well back to the doctor next week so we'll cross that bridge when we come to it.

Had a great time at Lib and Led's for the Super Bowl...we made a decision a few years ago to quit having a party or even leaving the house for the Super Bowl because we love football and were missing lots of the game. We had a ball...we all love football and had great food and Savannah...what more can you ask! Now I'm ready for some Sounds baseball! Poor Savannah doesn't have a chance...she will love sports or be bored out of her mind!

Hope you're all having a great winter...our jonquils are already up and blooming! Gotta go play!
