It’s Game Day With Linda Broday!


Are you ready to have some fun? I sure hope so. I like games and used to play a lot more than I do now. Growing up, my family loved the board game Aggravation (also known as Sorry). In fact, we loved it so much my dad made the board out of a piece of plywood and varnished it. I tell you, it was pretty fancy and well used. Uno is another favorite. My husband and I used to love playing backgammon and he was an expert. I really had to work hard to beat him and it didn’t happen very often.

Playing games is so relaxing and it sure is a good way to create unbreakable bonds. So let’s get to it.

Below are two pictures. Write a caption for each. Very simple and there are no bad answers.

Two people will win a $10 gift card and one person will win the first two of my Outlaw Mail Order Brides books (The Outlaw’s Mail Order Bride and Saving the Mail Order Bride.)

Ready, Set, Go!!

    Linda we loved playing Aggravation when we were growing up. We would stay up half the night playing that game or Rook. We played Aggravation at one of my younger sisters dinner party just a few months back and I still love to play, it was a fun night.

    1. Good morning, Quilt Lady! I’m happy to see you. Great captions. I love it! Wow, another Aggravation player! It is very fun to play. I’ve never laughed so hard. My mom would say all sorts of hilarious things, trying to coax the dice into giving her what she needed to win. Happy memories. You have a blessed day. Love and hugs!

    1. Good morning, Miss Melanie! Thanks for coming over to play. You came up with some great captions. Kids are so funny. Have a blessed day.

  16. Top: Yup, today is a good day and they are looking good.
    Bottom: Cool OLD stuff, how do you think they work?
    I grew up playing games. Mom made sure that all five kids enjoyed playing and having fun in contests. I did the same with our two children. Learning to play and have fun and not feeling like I have to win every time and loosing graciously are two important things that came across playing games. It over flowed into life.

    1. Good morning, Miss Lori! I’m so glad you came to play. Love your captions. Kids are hilarious. I agree about the value of playing games and how they prepare you for life. You don’t always win and you have to learn how to lose without losing your temper. That’s very difficult for children. You had a wise mom. I’m glad you took a page from her book with your two. 🙂 Blessings and love.

  17. 1. How the heck do I get over there? 2.Grandma said we take pictures with it wonder how they work?

    1. Hi Kim! I’m so happy you came by to play the game. Your first caption is exactly what came to my mind when I saw this picture. So funny. And I can definitely see those two kids asking that about the cameras. Have a blessed day.

  18. 1. I always wanted to be a bullrider, once I figure out the equipment.
    2. Selfies. Exactly what is a selfie?

    Have a great day with your sister. See you tomorrow.

    1. Hi Phyliss! I’m glad you played the game. Love your captions. Ha! Yes, I can see them asking both. See you tomorrow. Love you.

  19. 1. Yee Haw! Look at all ’em cows!
    2. What are these things?

    1. Hi Caryl! Thanks for coming. Great captions. Yep, I can see both. Have a blessed day, lady!

  20. I’m the cowboy king of the ranch!

    Cameras ready, time for our European vacation.

    1. Hi, Miss Denise! I can see all those boys saying that. Especially the first one. Love how he has his hands on his hips. Ha! I’m so happy you came over to play. Love you, lady.

  21. 1. I can see so far.
    2. These are from the olden days.

    2. What in the heck is this antique device?

    1. Hi Cheryl C! It’s great to see you. Thanks for playing. You wrote some great captions, girl.

  24. 1. I will stay here forever.
    2. I want to learn how this works.

    1. Hi April, thanks for coming to play. I love your captions! 🙂

  25. 1. I need to go wrangle those cows! 2. Now I can get some great shots!

    I love to play games with my niece and her family when they come over. We had a lot of fun playing Monopoly!

    1. Hi Trudy! I’m happy to see you. Great captions! How nice that your family still plays games. It’s hard to get kids interested in this day and age. Monopoly is a fun game. My grandson used to love that game but he’s way too busy now and would rather play video games.

      1. I was pleasantly surprised that they liked the board games! Next time they come, I’m going to teach them how to play Rummikube. My great nephew now knows I have Yhatzee, so he my want that, too.

  26. Not playing but what great pics!

    1. Thanks, Kit. Glad you like the pics but you should play.

  27. 1. I’ve eaten at Chick Fil A, aren’t cows supposed to have spots?

    2. Are you sure Ansel Adams started this way?

    1. Hi Carrie! Haha, great captions! These are a hoot! Thanks for playing.

  28. 1.Where are your calves?

    2.What do you think these were used for?

    Monopoly and the Farming Game were very popular at our house with our kids and grandkids. Sometimes they would stay set up and played for days before the game was finished or the players moved on to some other activity. Games don’t have to be labeled educational to teach much more than the game itself.

    1. Hi Alice! Thanks for playing my game. I love your captions! 🙂 How interesting about leaving the game up for days until they finished it. We never did ours even though it was very late sometimes when we finished. We definitely did our puzzles though. Working puzzles was so much fun, especially when the whole family was involved. Such a wonderful way to spend time together, something families don’t do anymore. I’m so glad you dropped by.

  29. 1. Wrangler Joe here … “You cows don’t look very happy! You’ll be seeing the bulls next week.”

    2. These two kids will never know what a Kodak moment is.

    1. Hi Kathy! Ha! Love your captions. 🙂 They’re great ones. Love you so much, lady.

  30. 1. “Ready or not cows, I’ m coming in to rope you all!” 2. “These watrerguns look like a lot of fun, let’s see where the water goes!”

    1. Hi Alicia! What great captions! Love them both. Thanks for playing, sweet lady. Love and hugs.

  31. Cute pictures.

    1. One day this will all be mine, then I’ll round them up and move them out

    2. Mom said there are pictures in here, but I can’t figure how to get them out.

    1. Hi Patricia! I’m so happy to see you. Love your captions. They say it all. Thank you so much for coming to play. Love you dearly.

  32. 1. Guess it’s up to me to get these cows brought in.
    2. I’ll take your picture if you take mine.
