201409.07 – Sunday Brunch: A Friendly Game of Cards

Show Notes

In which the Bathtub Mermaid talks about card games, kickstarter, and watching her relatives from behind the hutch.

Cups of strong coffee and glasses of homemade iced tea would share space with ash trays and plates of cookies (Stella D’oro anisette toast and Pepperidge Farm Milanos). Voices would be raised in affectionate bickering or exuberant laughter, and all of it would just be counterpoint to the real action: a friendly game of cards.
