Its getting dicey

The new billards table was impressive. Everyone was happy, and  
 you could hear the billard balls clicking merrily on the felt until Grand Papa started losing.

                           Grand Mama had to come in again.

 "This is your LAST CHANCE she instructed him" showing him the Backgammon table she found. "I don't imagine you can do too much damage with dice."


Nobody wanted to play him so the Chauffeur was drafted as he was in Grand Papa's employ.

This little table was made by HELLO DOLLY miniatures in
                                Taiwan. Maybe in the 1960's?

Cheers CM

I don't think I'd want to play any games with grandpapa. He has a bad temper. Love the backgammon table. You find such cool things.

Your billiards table is Amazing! Even has working pockets? And the little backgammon set is just perfect! Grandpa seems to be quite a scrappy Old Fellow! Good thing Grandma is there to keep things under control!

Granda papa doesn't play well with others! Did we discover he enjoys a little taste of spirits from time to time? Lol
