QUALITY TIME

She smiles and even giggles When her cards are good It’s the strangest game With the weirdest rules Yet she had the patience to teach me Just a kid now playing a grownup game And I see her smile and giggle Now that I know those silly rules And can play as well as any adult Quality time me and my grandmother Enjoying the few breaks she can She works all day tirelessly And on through the night Sewing quilts to sell at craft fairs To raise money to pay bills and A little extra for a Florida trip Sometimes she stops to play cards posted on April 5, 2019

Reading your poems about your grandmother I can tell that she was a wonderful person and you were close. You write so well I felt I was playing cards with her. It takes me back to my grandmother cooking for me. I didn't expect to visit grandma tonight, what a nice surprise, Thank you so much.

Yes, my grand-mother taught me the strangest card game ever... called PINOCHLE. They actually sell decks of cards but I have never met anyone who knows how to play the game. LOL
