So long, farewell...

Monopoly pieces

First of all, no one told the Barretts there was a voting contest going on! And we LOVE Monopoly...it's the house game around here.

If we were voting here is how it would go down...

Well, looking up at this above picture, C and A agree to get rid of the thumbtack.  The THUMBTACK??!?  What Thumbtack...great...I see we need some sewing lessons.
C: "Thumbtack/thimble...same thing."  Ummmm...one protects your fingers from being poked, the other actually pokes your fingers!!

E*

Just called it a "cappie thing."  Oh MY!  We DO need a lesson here! And that was his vote.


Dad: would have voted out the wheel barrow...funny. Poor tool...helpful, strong...always around to give you a helping hand...

Me...hmmm.... hard to say...maybe shoe...

I probably only like the iron b/c it's my mom's favorite chore!

In the end E is going to treasure the iron forever...and pass it down generation to generation. His words, not mine.  Now...to do a little sewing!

PS. just remembered that I did an art project in school on the monopoly thimble...hmmmm....guess I wouldn't be voting it out!

I read they were replacing it with a cat.

oh no...NEVER the shoe. My grandpa and Daddy Center always carried a shoe in their pocket..daily! Plus a shoe could 'walk' around the various streets, looking for property to buy and build upon. Never the Scottie because of Bonnie. I guess I don't want any of them to be retired. You have to have the top hat for the Monopoly man. and the battleship is a sign of the times from yesteryear as well now. And who doesn't want the SoapBox Derby car? And of course you need a thimble cuz you have the iron....Sadly, I can see why they want to give up the iron. Who irons today?

ROFL, this post cracked me up :) I'm one of those unfortunate wives that irons my hubby's shirts/pants instead of dry cleans - bah, out with the iron! Have fun sewing!
