having not seen any playing cards in the wild for a while i spotted two lots today about a mile apart. the first lot are here, but it is this one which really interested me.
i spotted it on the floor and used my usual paper kicking technique to flip the card over, but it would not turn. i kicked again and it just skidded down the pavement. one more kick and it flipped in the air but landed back face down. i gave it one more kick to no avail then decided to stop as it was heading for the road.
so i bent down, turned it over, and it was … the joker !
it’s been a good day for my collections. here are a load of playing cards. unfortunately most of these were too worn out to be identifiable. and i’ve also made a policy of only including single cards in my complete collection. multiple finds are interesting, but make it too easy to complete the deck
jane and i had lunch at Harry
ramadam’s Ramsden’s. Fish and chip tastic.
here it is from the outside (Bournemouth sea front)
here is stonehenge built from sugar lumps (sponsored by tate and lyle)
your actual delicious actual fish and actual chips (jane had cod, i had plaice)
jane spotted this playing card on the ceiling. it was signed by Mike so i suspect it was part of a magician’s trick. i haven’t got a 4 of spades in my card collection so i was very pleased.
