It is a truth universally acknowledged that a rainy day becomes much cheerier when one is in possession of a turquoise umbrella.


Suspense...and the Outcome

A few weeks ago, while on a family vacation at the beach, several of us sun-burnt cousins decided on an old- fashioned game of cards…“Old Maid” to be exact. And, being the annoying person that I am (mwhahahaha), I photographed the entire game. :D
102_9029-1 Cousin Drew, in an attempt to create a tough guy image complete with “poker face” dons a back hat and sunglasses. Very intimidating, Drew, very intimidating. ;)
Is Erin hiding a frown or a gleeful smile behind her deck of cards? Only she can tell. :)
Elisabeth studies her cards intently…
As you can see, concentration reigns high around the card table. Mouths are drawn into taunt lines, conversation is stilted, players dart glances at one another and then back at their deck. Everyone can practically feel the tension…
102_9036-1 …Well, almost everyone. :D
As the game nears its close, it is unclear as to who has the unwanted card, the one that spells defeat for a player. Sighs of relief can be heard as, one by one, each player draws and places down their last match…except for one.
*deep sigh* Sheesh, if this turns out to be prophetic, then I’m in trouble! LOL
