bingo and an addiction

i think i might have a serious addiction to B.I.N.G.O. yes, bingo :)

as crazy as it sounds, playing bingo has been on my life list for quite some time. every time i mention it, my husband shakes his head and tells me i will never be able to handle the smoke. you see, he was raised going to a bingo hall with his grandmother where cigarette smoke filled the air and you had a hard time seeing above the women's beehives.

i let me dream pass until our small town airport started having bingo every thursday night. and guess what - it is smoke free! the card above is the closest i came to winning the "Crazy T" (a T in any direction). despite the fact that i didn't win anything, i had so much fun. i know, i know, i have a little old lady inside of me waiting to escape :)

the only question that remains is what do these women fill up their dauber purses with and why is it necessary to have 10 daubers at one time???


  1. Do they wash those things? I've never seen bingo cards like that! I love bingo, too! I played with my grandmother's church when I was a kid and I have a shining memory of glory when I won this awful little blue purse. Bingo's the best!

  2. the pages are on newsprint. you go in and buy a stack of 6 pages for 6 games. i thought they were so pretty i had to bring them home!

  3. I love bingo too! I have got to go with you one night....


  4. Oh I love BINGO and have awesome memories of going with my Mom when I was younger. I may have to make a trip out to PTC on a Thursday night to play!
