I Heart Faces - Hands On Fun

I'm still enjoying the I Heart Faces blog.  I had been planning on participating on more of their challenges but as of yet, haven't seemed to find the time!  But this week is about hands and I have a favourite photo in the archives.

I've always loved this photo.  To me the cards and weathered hands, made it instantly recognizable as Marlin's grandpa.  His grandparents only play card games with Rook cards.


When grandpa saw this picture of himself his only comment was "Why is my head cut off?"  I could have predicted that would be his reaction!


Be sure to check out all the other entries on the i heart faces blog by clicking on the image above.

I love it! One of my grandfathers passed away when I was very young. The only thing I remember about him is he loved to play cards.

I had 2 old maid great aunties that always came to look after me when my parents travelled. They taught me rummy and numerous other great card games. Wonderful times.
Thanks for the memory jogger!!
