What Inspires Me…”Comadres”

I am still recovering and processing all the thoughts and feels from the weekend. My baby got married. So, today’s prompt in the #SCFacebookChallenge, “what inspires you,” is too much for a Facebook post.

The topic today is CARDS…

… mainly because tomorrow is Father’s Day, and because I’ve spent too much of my free time lately playing Solitaire. My son has gotten me completely addicted to the Microsoft Solitaire Collection app. It has daily challenges around five games: FreeCell, Spider, Klondike, Pyramid, and TriPeaks. But my obsession goes back much further. I blame …
