Like Old Times

What’s Jack up to? The Jackster is doing fine. He’s spent most of the weekend being his own demanding self and giving me this look which says can you get off your butt and get me a treat or something lady? This is usually following by an impolite nudge.

Here are a few pics from my weekend.

Cocktail meatballs simmering for Nana’s Birthday get together and Pokeno game. Can you say Shweaty Balls?

And deviled eggs. Does anybody make them anymore? I do!

Then the game at Nana’s so much fun. We haven’t played in ages. When I was a kid Nana and her friends would play cards until the wee hours of the morning. Now it was the next generation’s turn and only one of Nana’s old friends (Mrs. G) got to come up to the apartment. We were all so glad to see her since she had not been well and was out of the hospital. She was so happy to play cards and party like the old days that she stayed up talking with Nana and closed the party at 2am!

I hope you have a lovely week.

    Looks like a nice family gathering in honor of Nana. The weekends just pass too quickly, don't they?

    There is nothing like old times! My Grandmother was a fierce card player – I think that Nana and Grandma would have liked each other and loved playing cards.
    My Grandma had the best "poker face!"

    Kwana, I'm glad Nana had a great bday gathering. I grew up with a family that played card games.

    Oh that Mr. Jack has the "terrier" look down to a T!! Smile…

    Mmmmm, deviled eggs! My own Nana used to make them every Thanksgiving and Easter. Haven't had one in ages. I think I may need to make some myself.

    We played cards with the children the other night and after a slow start we all got into it!

    Thanks for the comments and I'm glad there are still so many fans of deviled eggs. Yummy and retro.
