Happy families.
« on: May 18, 2020, 11:24:15 AM »



Yesterday afternoon we had our weekly family quiz..
We all popped up on screen and waved to another..
We had six teams including me.. Some had FIVE in their team but mostly two.. except for me.. I'm a team of one..
I never win and quite honestly I never expect to.. I know very little about sport.. popular music and Buz Lightyear.


Then a question came up that I knew the answer to I was very excited.. I was very smart.. I didn't let on..  BUT one of the players got up from her seat and went off to find her partner because she knew he would know the answer.


 That didn't seem fair to me..and said that she shouldn't do that.. Everything went quiet.. and others seem to be holding their breath.. waiting..


She said that if he is in the house then he could answer a question..
I replied 'Does that mean I can have Alexa in my team when I am stuck.' ?
The cheeky monkey then said ' Are you playing or not.'?


Somebody left the game.. Guess who..?   ;D ;D ;D ;D
Heaven knows what I will do on a Sunday at 3:00 in future.  ;D ;D

Can you not divide the teams more fairly even though you are in different houses?  I presume you are on zoom and think it may be possible. 

I had another zoom natter with my pals yesterday.  It was good to see them all and hear about the lovely walks they have been doing.  Some of them are covering big distances so should be very fit by the time we get back to whatever normal will be.

Hi Sheila.. I donít mind the mixed teams.. Itís lovely to see everyone joining in.... BUT my point was that leaving the game to go and find someone who knows the answer..


 Blimey , am I getting old and miserable.?  ;D


I love chatting to my friends live on messenger.. Itís jut like sitting in a coffee shop and having a natter.. We even meet up in the park and stroll around the flower garden and lake. at a distance.. It takes about an hour.. Then we all get in our motors and go home. Usually because someone is desperate for a wee.

Is Zoom any good and is it expensive?

Zoom is free for a small number of individuals (maximum 6 I think but am not sure).  Normally the time limit is 40 minutes but at the moment they have extended this.

A bunch of 70 year olds managed (eventually) to all have sound and video switched on and 'gallery' mode pressed.  A host has to get a meeting planned and invite people.

There are five of us Ashy.  We may have to adopt a system of putting our hand up if we want to talk!  Sometimes two people start talking at the same time and then both politely shut up and wait for the other.  Normally there are seven of us 'ladies wot lunch' but two of the group were worried about security on zoom.  If anyone is interested in the five of us rabbiting on about walks and families, I would be very surprised.
