Once a month on a Sunday, a group of delightful women gather together to play a game of chance called BUNCO. There are 12 of us, so each of us host one month. Tomorrow we are playing at Ashley's cottage (not my daughter!) which I will try to post a picture of tomorrow or Monday as it is totally delightful.
Ashley will prepare the BEST spread of food and will serve some wonderful cocktail, probably of her own design or something new she has tried lately. Ashley has her whole hand on the pulse of TODAY and always knows the most happenin' thing!
We each pitch in $5 and the winner takes home $20. There are other prizes too, like last BUNCO and lowest score and some others. I have won before but it is pretty spread out who wins. We have this cute thing we do about yelling out BUNCO (which happens when you roll three of a kind of the number of the round you are on...) which is giggle merrily because we have determined the way you yell BUNCO! is how you yell in bed! (aren't we naughty!!)
I look forward to spending time with this group: Letha works for the school district and has great stories to tell, Charlotte brings awesome goodie bags each month, Jan is retired and tells substitute teacher stories, no one tells a joke like Barb, Ashley teaches first grade and has wonderful stories, Sue plays tennis and has all the scoop on Macintosh, Linda was our past Missouri State Teacher of the Year and is now the author of Brain Quest, Jennifer owns her own photography studio, Betsy works in marketing and knows the up and coming events in town, Shanna teaches 9th grade math, again with great stories, and Tish teaches in middle school and has a good time wherever she is! And there's me.
