My love for the piney woods of East Texas involves family, food, bbqs, sweltering days, the landscape, and 42.
42 originated in Texas. It’s a ‘trick-taking’ game a lot like some some card games. If my knowledge of history is correct, 42 came about because certain religious groups thought card playing was sinful!!! They didn’t mind folk holding dominoes.
That’s Uncle William’s hand right there. Taint a bad one either. He’s a master for sure. Both at the game and at distraction. Trash talking at some tables is an integral part of the game to hide the fact “my hand is awful”…
