Weekend Plans

My Friday night is shaping up with this! I brought this back from Virginia, and it hasn't been played in probably thirty years. So it creeped me out when I found an old peanut in the box. Left in on the counter to see if my husband or kids eats it :)


Saturday, it's off to Ikea to get new bookshelves.

Hope you all have a great weekend!

See, now the song "Found a Peanut" is going through my head. Maybe you better not leave it on the counter!

Have fun with your game night tonight!

And new bookshelves! That's always fun!

The peanut cracked me up, Chris! I miss you! Hope you have a great weekend, too!

we have an old clue game just like that - ah, the memories...

and, my kids would totally eat that peanut.

PJ Hoover said...

Enjoy the car, Chris!

Tess, I LOVE that my kids are way into CLUE now. It is like a total blast from the past!

PJ Hoover said...

I should dare someone to eat it, Tess...

Rena said...

Oooh, that game looks really familiar. What year was it made?

LMHO @ leaving the peanut for your husband or kids. Now that's funny.

Love your new pic too!

PJ Hoover said...

That would be 1971 vintage, Rena! And the peanut has a grub hole running through it. May string it on a necklace.

What an old, fun looking game! Let us know who wins.

DO NOT EAT THE PEANUT!

I've never heard of the Uncle Wiggly game! But we are gearing up to play Trivial Pursuit or Pass the Pigs soon tonight!

PJ Hoover said...

I won, Shelley! And I did not eat the peanut. It's still downstairs waiting...

I hope you had a great game night, Kelly!

Rebecca said...

I love games. Old or new. But not old peanuts.

Kelly--pass the pigs is the best game ever!

Miriam S. Forster said...

Heehee. You are truly evil, PJ.

I might do the exact same thing in your shoes though. :)

PJ Hoover said...

Agreed, Rebecca. Old games but not old peanuts.

Evil minds think alike, Miriam!

I'm glad you posted a pic. I saw this on FB and had never heard of this game, and we were big into games as kids!

I've not heard of that game. The peanut is funny!

PJ Hoover said...

No IKEA in Hawaii, Chaz! How sad. But then not really since it is Hawaii!

Angela, it's been a blast all weekend. I don't think they still make it :)

The peanut was hilarious, Nora! We laughed quite a bit.
