We had a nice easy-going Saturday night last night. Jake’s parents went over to Aunt Rosie’s and their friend John’s house yesterday after work until about 7pm CST here, so Jake and I got McDonald’s for Dinner and settled down with the cats and our games and things. As we were finishing Dinner, Jake’s Mom texted to ask us if we had eaten yet, because they were all coming home in awhile and John was going to bring some fish over.
Since we had, of course eaten, but were nauseous yet simultaneously still hungry, we said great.
Jake’s parents, Aunt Rosie and John arrived home about 20 minutes later, and we all sat in the kitchen and had a good, relaxed Dinner of John’s halibut fish as well as some really yummy Golden Plump chicken, wedges and rolls. It was a really yummy Dinner and we all sat around and talked, having fun as we all watched Gizmo and Smokey chase each other all around the house, crashing around like idiots and having a great time. lol.
They were both really good for the most part though, and both learned what a spray bottle was whenever they tried to vault onto the kitchen counters. I think after awhile though that Smokey thought it was a game with Jake’s Dad though, since after the second or third time he got sprayed, he didn’t even squeak - he just jumped eight back down. lol
After Dinner, Jake’s parents, Aunt Rosie and John and Jake and I payed a round of the card game, “Golf” that they taught me awhile ago. I really like it, even though I took 2nd or 3rd last night’s game of “Golf” with something like 35 points. lol. Jake got something like 167 points, and his Dad won with like 29 points. The game ended around around 10pm CST, which of course was 11pm EST, so because Jake’s Dad had to go into the work this morning again, we ended the night. It was a fun night! -smiles-
We all got up this morning when Jake’s Dad left for work and after feeding Smokey and stuff, Jake and I settled in the living room with our laptops and are watching different reruns on TV while Jake’s Mom played her own games and things on her iPad. Jake’s Dad got home from his Sunday work around 3pm and we all just lazed around, with the cats playing in the kitchen, until Jake’s Uncle Mike came over, and he and Jake’s parents hung out and talked in the kitchen for while. They actually just left to take Uncle Mike somewhere, too, saying that they they are not exactly sure when they will be back, so Jake and I are on our own, playing our games and things.
http://www.pagat.com/draw/golf.html - Golf is a card game for two or more players, in which the object is to score as little as possible, as in the sport of Golf. In front of each player is a layout of cards arranged in a square or rectangle, and players improve their scores by drawing new cards to replace unwanted cards, which they discard. Each deal is seen as the equivalent of a hole of Golf, and in many versions a complete game consists of 9 or 18 deals, corresponding to the length of a Golf course.
Although the card game Golf is quite widespread in North America, Britain, and perhaps other English speaking countries, it is seldom found in card game books. Golf is also sometimes known as Polish Polka or Polish Poker; the 4-card game is known by some players as Turtle, the 6-card game as Hara Kiri, and the 9-card game as Crazy Nines. The game of Golf described on this page has no connection with the Solitaire (Patience) game of the same name.
Each player has a layout of cards, initially face down, which can be successively replaced by new cards drawn from the stock or discard pile. The aim is to make a layout scoring as little as possible. The scores at the end of the play are sometimes considered as representing the number of strokes taken to play a hole of golf. It is common to play a series of nine deals or ‘holes’, at the end of which the player with the lowest total score wins.
Here are two photos of Gizmo and Smokey that we got today of them cuddling by the screen door in the kitchen. In both photos, Smokey is of course the striped one with his green collar, and Gizmo is the fluffier one with her Tortoiseshell patches. <3
