I am so very excited. I am getting to go on vacation with a favorite cousin and her family and a few others. The wonderful surprise is that I get to go alone. My awesome husband has been trying to get me to take a break, unbeknownst to me, and visit my cousin. We are taking off to my grandmother's (deceased) house in the Florida Keys!!!! If there was any place in the world I would have to pick to stay permanently, it would be this place. Such memories from growing up! And a very fun group of people to hang out with. And I plan on doing a lot of nothing -- no side trips, no sightseeing(seen it all already,) nothing but quiet tatting, reading and a few naps thrown in for the heck of it. (-:

I have been doing some tatted earrings, necklaces, rings, dodads, etc. I just wish I could get my scanner to work or a camera that took closeups without being blurry. I will post them when I can. Hope everyone is enjoying their Spring. Ha Ha. It is cold here with strong wind that goes through all the clothes. Can't wait for that Florida sun to warm me up!!! Be back soon.....maybe...

So, last week was the Tournament of Champions. Here's the trophy I got for being the points leader for the season. (We get points for each game depending on where you finish in the line up. First place gets the most.)

Then we had a game where the top ten or so players in that location played for the Tavern Champion. Hee, hee, hee. I won that one, too. I had a few too serious players that aren't happy with me. They think I am not professional. (And they are?!?!) The problem is they can't "read" me. I don't play the way the "book" says I should. I bet little amounts when they think I should bet huge, and vise versa. (Sorry, but I didn't read the "book.") I guess I threw them all off their game this season. I am a quiet player. I don't do a lot of socializing, drinking, or bragging. I go to play a game I love and have a couple
of hours out of the house. They didn't know WHAT to make of me when I brought my tatting and worked on it during a game. But it was fun! Here's the trophy for taking first in the final game.

Unfortunately, this particular place is not going to hold their game on Wednesday nights in the up coming seasons. So, I guess I will be sitting out this next season. But, definitely fun times were had.
