Elf Village & Star Reporter

Nanny's House
Dec. 15, 2007

< < previous | next > >

Mom rescued an old board game that has sat on the shelves of the cabin for 60 years or so, Star Reporter. Players roll dice to drive, take a train, or fly to the scene of a news story or disaster. You even have to roll lucky numbers just to make a telephone call back to the newspaper office if you want to save making the trip. It's really a heavy dose of time travel.

As is the elf village, a simple Christmas disply of little men made from pine cones which has been set up in my folks' home since my earliest memory -- and, my mom says, in her folks' home since her earliest memories before that.
