Sister Get Together

Yesterday was the first time in a few weeks that my two sisters and I have played cards on a Monday night. It was fun and laughs for the three of us and the first time I've been with them both in weeks. The summer hasn't been kind to a couple of us this year. I won't elaborate but between pain, sickness and colds it hasn't been a good one. The weather hasn't helped at all as it's been very, very hot and humid. But I manage to not let it get me down too much.

Anyway back to the game. We mostly play a card game called "Hand and Foot". It's a canasta type game with 4 levels and one more deck than the number of players, i.e.; 3 players, four decks. We play the first set of cards  (11 cards called the hand)  and we are dealt and passed on by the player on our right 11 cards, the foot, not to be used until we play the hand. Sounds complicated but it isn't really. I learned by playing as I hate to read rules of any game. Here's a video on how to play. Just remember those who play, play it different from others. If you want to know more about the game google hand and foot card game. It was so humid that the cards were sticking to our hands and we stopped inbetween the game to go into my sister's living room to relax. It was the first time in a long time I ended up winning. LOL!



Nothing else new, right now it's 5:15 AM and I'm washing clothes in the laundry room before anyone in the building is up and around and the hot heat and humidity kick in. So dear friends until the next time, be blessed.

  1. Hi Toni, I am glad you got together with your sisters. I am not good at card games but I do like Monopoly and I play Word with Friends on my IPhone. It is like scrabble. Good to get laundry done early before it gets to hot. I heard there has been a heat wave your way. In the 90's here. We just had the wedding rehearsal and there are pictures at my blog. Take care. Hugs

  2. This was interesting Toni. We sure do have different rules - don't we. One thing I noticed that she did that the Myrtle Beach players do is they can only add add'l cards to a red book - whereas we add to red & black books. Also, she didn't go into what the red and black three's are, especially as they relate to the points.

    1. They really play it differently than we do but not the basic game just some different rules. I like the way we play much better.
