Relative Something

*this* John W. Hays' take on things and experiences

Thursday Night

with 2 comments

When you don’t work on Fridays, Thursday night becomes the early occasion to party like the weekend is upon you. Have some neighbors over, eat a feast, play some cards, and stay up late having loads of fun.


I’m exhausted. And rejuvenated.

Is that even possible?

Bring on my 3-day weekend. It’s my last one before leaving on the annual week-long June bike camping trip, The Tour of Minnesota. I guess I better start thinking about preparations. Will it be a hot trip this year? Rainy? What should I pack?

I’m thinking about trying a minimalist approach this time around, so the questions take on more significance for me. In one week, I will be making a final decision about what makes the cut.

I hope the weather forecasts show some general agreement by then, and as long as I’m hoping, that they predict nothing but the smallest of chances for rain.

  1. What is the card game? Looks something like rummy, but it also looks like you are playing with 2 decks?

    • Yes! Good eye. It is a rummy game that George calls “Bikini” and involves 2 decks. It is a pretty free-for-all play ’em if ya got ’em version, with very few limitations. Play on anything that is laid, at any time. Rearrange the sets at will, leaving no orphaned cards. Only draw up to 3 cards if no play is available. Easy and fun for conversation and distractions.
