Settlers and links

When I first met Richard, he introduced me to a game called Settlers of Catan
We played it non stop & his generosity within the "game" helped to convince me that he was a really, really nice guy & I should marry him.
It's paid off...the "Settlers boyfriend test" is a good one..Does he trade easily? Is he selfish with his resources? Does he wait for his turn?
All these skills are extremely handy in the game of life & relationships.
Now my whole family plays it back in Australia with such gusto that they have songs and everything to accompany it. Weird I know, but oddly satisfying.
Normally the brick resources are really hard to come by...for some reason not so in this game..here is Richard's hand (a little bit out of focus though I'm sorry). You can also see his creativity in the left hand corner where he's stacked up his roads & settlements to create a totem pole. What a guy!!!!!!
I also want to thank Kelly for the link to the hilarious blog "Wide Lawns and narrow minds". A must read. Especially the August 22nd post....enjoy.
Thanks also for cupcake cars.

The Pennsylvania Mennonites I spent some years with play a card game called Dutch Blitz, also with much gusto and vigor. Sounds like fun!
