I suddenly have an overwhelming urge to leap from my chair and yell, "BINGO!" Of course my hubby might take that as a sign that I have completely lost my mind so I shall remain silent.

And I want to start singing--"B-I-N-G-O..."!

Love those Bingo photos! Don and I tried it once...it was too cutthroat for us! Ya didn't mess with those little old ladies (and men) in tennis shoes. It was serious business to them and they had it down to a science. You didn't sit in their lucky seat, you didn't mess with their stuff, and you darn well better not make a mistake and yell BINGO when they're the ones who bingoed! "Katie Bar the Door" and look out!

I have a song stuck in my head and Bingo is its name-o...

B-I-N-G-O, B-I-N-G-O, B-I-N-G-O and Bingo is its name-o.

Ms. A said...

It's been a million years since I've played bingo! (that shows my age, huh)

Eileen said...

Believe it or not, all I can smell is Aqua Net. And a little hint of Jean Nate.

Great shots ( of course )...
I am not a huge Bingo fan, but if
you have a roulette table then
save me a seat. !!!

Have a great weekend...
Happy Easter Betty .......

Nothing my mom liked better than a mean game of Bingo. She was lucky at it, to. A favorite game at nursing homes. I fear there may be a Bingo game in my future. Please say it ain't so.

I love all your "games" photos. Very creative how you've looked at all of them.

I do have to smile a bit, though, at the thought of "Fun and Games Friday" on Good Friday. I don't make my children do this, but I remember playing with my sisters outside in silence in between Stations and the Liturgy.

It was just the way we did it back then. Bingo would have been tough ;-)

Wishing you and yours a happy Easter.

Old Kitty said...

We had an old bingo game growing up -- with the cage that held the round bingo balls.

Thanks for bringing back that sweet childhood memory.

Super photos today, Betty. :)

My sister volunteers at the church bingo session once a month and hates it, apparently the people are all dead serious about bingo and most players don't even go to the church, they just show up to gamble. I'm going to send her the link to these pictures, will make her break out in a cold sweat, thanks!

Cool Gal said...

Great pictures, Betty. BINGO is always exciting, especially because every player is always "so close" to winning.
Have a nice weekend.
