SPA - Bingo

Bingo - I think I grew up on Bingo and Bunco, although I don't hear too much about the latter anymore. When I think of the smokey church halls, Moose Lodges and school cafeterias I sat in with my aunt and grandmother when I was a kid, it's a wonder second hand smoke didn't do me in! But it was fun, in a way, to see the friendships in those halls. I haven't played bingo in a very long time (the last time was an all nighter on New Years Eve - what an active social life! - and a very fluffy pillow!!!) Creating something about bingo was so much fun! Thanks for the memories!

Great collage of different bingo cards! And the woman is wonderful looking. I enjoyed your write up, too. Did the bunko squad ever break up a bingo game? ;-)
