Wednesday Stamper Challenge

The theme this week over at Wednesday Stamper was "Games." Had to think about that -- not too many game pieces in my stamp collection.
When I looked at the image of this woman I was reminded of that card game we played as children, Old Maid. You had to have pairs of cards to lay down, and if you couldn't make a pair you had to pick a card from someone else. There was only one Old Maid so you would not want to pick that one because then you'd be stuck with it at the end and lose the game.
Somebody at work remarked how we don't call unmarried women "Old Maids" anymore. I said yeah, now we know to call them "lucky." (JK, honey:)
