One of the blogs I follow is Holiday Doodles. Today is Card Playing Day and National Chocolate Candy Day. It's a good couple of holidays, considering what else today is.
Today would be my mother's 70th birthday, so if I had friends around who knew how to play, I'd spend the day playing "Kings in the Corner" or even possibly Pinochle, in her honor. Daddy would probably also buy her a Whitman's Sampler to share at the card table.
This is a good holiday. Happy Birthday, Mommy.
