Nothing to do this Sunday afternoon. After a nap and reading the papers and the gossip rag, I went to our living room. I was looking for something to occupy my time and I saw the Jacks set I bought several years back on a whim.
I used to be very good at playing jacks (jackstones) in my elementary days. We even had a game called chinese jack stones (small square shaped pillows filled with mung beans), with modified versions of picking up the “jacks”.
Anyway, I took out the jacks and had a go at it on our living room floor. Too bad the rubber ball was not as bouncy; probably degraded from storing it too long. And one of the jacks had lost a leg.
Not bad if I must say so. Still got it. I went through the one’s, two’s all the way to the 10s. Then to the falling stars and the around the world and the caves. Yeah. 🙂
