Houseboat Scrabble

I went over to fellow houseboater Monique’s last night for a friendly and fun game of scrabble. We are both suffering from a slight case of cabin fever with the long dark evenings, so it was fun to do something different. Note the large glass of wine she poured me – her game winning strategy. We had fun! The walk home was memorable too for some wonderful northern lights. We don’t often see them before bedtime, and these were fabulous.  Lots of vehicles were down on the lake to watch.

Playing scrabble reminded me of a terrific story a about the game I read recently, The Gods of Scrabble.   This creative non fiction piece won the Canada Writes Contest on CBC last year. I can certainly see why! It will be a long time before I forget this funny story.  I think the writing is fantastic too.  Very inspiring.

    Scrabble’s fun, especially when accompanied by a nice white and played with a good friend. I know a couple of people who play online, but that’s never appealed to me. Your way of doing it’s much better.

    Getting to see the northern lights on a walk home is pretty darned special, too. One of these days our clouds will go away and we’ll at least be able to see something. But the days are getting longer. It’s light here by about 6:45 a.m. and light enough to work until 5:15 or 5:30. Tomorrow’s groundhog day – we’ll see if he sees his shadow!
