I've been joining some friends to play "Pip" the last several Wednesdays. My friends are this 90+ year old couple (90 and 94, to be exact), both sharp as tacks a world of fun. They have been married for 72 years, y'all. That is a lot of years! That means that she was just 18 when she married him. I asked her once if she was scared then. She said, "No. Not at all. We've both always just felt that home was wherever the other person was." So sweet. They are precious. And most definitely an inspiration. They are funny, too. She says they play "Pip" because the other domino games are "too serious." I love the Wednesdays when I can join them to play. Makes my day.
