Our next meeting will be on Tuesday 7th October, at the Horse and Jockey pub in Stanford-in-the-Vale. 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 Love Letter. This is a very small card game that we used to get out a lot, but seem to have got out of the habit of playing even though we still bring it. Although it only consists of sixteen cards and it is surprisingly entertaining. We have picked it this week because it is quick to play and will fill time nicely until everyone has arrived.
And talking of Love…
Jeff was spending the day out walking with his new puppy dog. Now, Jeff being Jeff, he’d brought a couple of cans of lager with him to have with his lunch, so an hour later the inevitable happened and he desperately needed to relieve himself. He was unsure what to do, since he needed both hands, but also didn’t want to let go of the dog lead. He decided to stand on the lead, but unfortunately, the young dog was startled and bolted as soon as Jeff began.
Jeff hinted high and low looking for the puppy, calling and calling. As night fell, so did the rain and Jeff suddenly realised that he was very lost and would need somewhere to shelter for the night. In the dusk, he happened upon a caravan which was unlocked, so he went in to rest on the bed. As he lay there he suddenly heard the noise of a key in the lock and in a panic he hid under the bed.
He was just quick enough to hide himself so that the young couple returning from an evening out were completely oblivious to his presence. So much so that, fortified from the bottle of wine they’d had with their romantic meal, they did what all young couples do in such circumstances and began to make love on the bed.
Breathing heavily, and caressing her hair, the young man complimented the girl, “In your eyes,” he said, “I can see the whole world.”
On hearing this the Jeff jumped out from under the bed and said, “If you can see the whole world, can you see where my puppy is?!?!”
