Chats on the Farmhouse Porch #76

I came across "Chats on the Farmhouse Porch" on one of the blogs I recently started following.  This looks like fun and I thought I'd jump on the bandwagon.

Everyday Ruralty


1. What was your favorite game as a child?

When I was a child I played a lot of board games and card games.  I think my favorite board game was one that my mom had picked up at the local Goodwill.  I don't remember for sure what it was named. "Bankroll" comes to mind ... It was a cross between life and monopoly.  There there three "levels" and once you saved up enough money in your savings account you could advance to the next level on the board.  Things got more expensive the higher the level.  You could "retire" and win the game once you had X amount of money in the bank and a certain amount of real estate.

edit 1/23/13 I found the game.  It was called Bankroll

2. Have you ever had your own business? (home business, a shop, Etsy, lemon-aid stand, etc)

I have never owned a business.

3. How's your spelling?

Considering where I work, it should be better, but I'm a bit stubborn.  I call it "good enough." Though if I see bad style and formatting and errors in other people's work, it sometimes makes my eye twitch. 

4. How are you about going to the dentist?

I'm not a fan of the dentist.  But I did sit through a quad cleaning after not going to the Dentist for 10+ years.  Thank goodness for novacaine. I have remarkable healthy teeth. 

5. Do you enjoy board games?

I enjoy board games but I don't always have someone to play them with.  For a while my son was pretty hardcore on "Sorry".  The first time he played "Monopoly" against his dad and I he won.  Not too bed for a 6 year old (or was he 5?)

Welcome to my porch! I'm glad you decided to join the chat. Your childhood game sounds like it would be great to teach about money. I'm a homeschool mom. so I notice things that can help teach.I had a child who was pretty good at Monopoly at a young age. Humbling for the mom and dad! :) I hope you will join us again next week.

How fun! Sounds kinda like what I came here to tell you about. lol

I nominated you for a Liebster award, whatever that is. lol. Don't feel obligated, but it's one of those things where you answer some questions, and then ask some of your own to some other bloggers. Details are here:

Thanks for the warm welcome Patrice. :-) I wish I still had that board game.

@Christine, thank you! I will check it out on your blog.

Someone who is worse at making dentist appointments than me. Thats a relief! I have suprisingly healthy teeth despite making rare visits to the dentist.

Amnicon Studio said...

I think my dentist was in awe of the fact that it had been so long between visits, lol. They kept remarking about how good my teeth were.

Madonna said...

Oh that game sounds. Fun. We are huge gamers and love them all. I have that eye twitch thing too haha.

Thanks for stopping by Madonna. After I read your comment I decided to see if I could find the board game. I did! I'm gonna add it to the blog entry. It's been 20 years since I played.
