Greetings on this glorious day! Joan and I are signing in to wish all of you a very Happy Easter. It’s going to be a good one, no matter where you are residing. Here in the upper midwest we have been blessed with some long awaited bright sun. We have green plants poking themselves through the soil and reaching for the warmth and light of the sun. Each spring it’s such a joy to watch these plants and trees come alive once again!

We’ve enjoyed playing American Hand-N-Foot for several years and were happy to bring it the the Rio Grande Valley this winter. Our friends at Palm Gardens love the game and will be playing it long after we leave.

My wife and I are avid card players. We enjoy playing two-handed games, just between us or playing as partners against other teams. We have played variations of Rummy, to include Canasta, Gin Rummy and Wild Rummy. Canasta proved to be quite a challenge and we soon gave up on it. In October 2018, we, along with about 20 of our fellow alumni from the East Saint Louis Sr High School Class of 1976, went on a cruise to commemorate us all turning 60 years old. During this 8-day cruise, we were introduced to the American Hand-n-Foot game. Because of our previous exposure to the various types of Rummy games, and of course, your special cards, we caught on right away and LOVE IT! One of our fellow travelers gave us one of your business cards. We ordered our own set immediately after returning from the cruise. We, now are owners of a travel business and, as we travel, this game will go where we go. Earlier I stated that we LOVE THE GAME… to be honest, its more like an addiction that we don’t want to be cured of. Thank you for your hard work and persistence in developing this game to perfection. God bless you with much success.

Vacationing? Take a game with you when you go.
The following is a snipit from an article which was written in our local suburban newspapers:
One of Aunt Norma’s granddaughters had a friend in the military and she sent one of the games to him. He grew to love the game as did others and it gained widespread popularity at the base where he was stationed.
