Recently a small five year old boy was introduced to the old fashioned game of Woodland Snap, using the original pack of cards. He was enchanted by it. Widow Pintips, Prettywigs Pattikins, Nubby Tope etc all weaved their magic just as they did for my sisters and myself when we were young.

It was such a treat to know that not everything has to be electronically generated for youngsters to enjoy it. Simple pleasures, calm moments in sea of electronic beeping.

Very best wishes – Denny Bradbury – poet and struggling techno person
