Next Meeting – 17th December 2013

Following the fire at the Jockey, our next meeting on Tuesday 17th December will be held in a private house in Stanford.  Please get in touch if you would like to come along and would like directions.  As usual, we will be playing shorter games from 7.30pm as people arrive, until 8pm when we will start something a little longer.

This week the “Feature Game” will be Morels.  This is a quick little card game based on mushroom picking.  We’ve chosen this because we know some people will probably be late arriving and it’s a cute little game that the early birds can play while they are waiting to hear who will come.


And talking of mushrooms…

Jeff was out Christmas shopping and while he was waiting at the checkout, he got talking to the man in the queue behind him.  The conversation got around to wives, and he said he had been widowed three times. Jeff was appalled, “Three wives, all dead and buried?” he asked.

“Yes,” replied the man.

“What happened if you don’t mind me asking?” said Jeff.

“Not at all,” the man answered, “The first one ate poison mushrooms.”

“What happened to the second one?” asked Jeff, all agog.

“Poison Mushrooms,” replied the man.

“And the third?” asked Jeff, thinking he might have spotted a pattern.

“Fractured skull,” said the man.

“Oh,” said Jeff, “How did that happen?”

The man paused, then replied, “She wouldn’t eat the poison mushrooms…”
