News, updates, and happenings with the Kragnes family: Phil, our Seeing Eye Dogs, and (me) Rebecca.

I remember my dad trying to show me how to fan out a hand of playing cards when I was a little girl. One problem was that the braille cards available then were extra slippery. If I fanned out the cards, inevitably, they would start slipping apart even more, land in a heap on the table, and probably some of them would be face-up. An additional concern came about when trying to read the braille on the corners as the cards overlapped. Again, I have to pull them a little more apart to see the Braille, and into the heap they’d go. I don’t remember having dice or learning many dice games as a kid. If the dice were big enough, I could count the holes. It was easier when playing with Braille dice — on which the holes are instead raised dots. I discovered I really liked dice games as an adult. If the game wasn’t enclosed like our Shut the box games, I’d go in search of a square pan with a little depth, so the dice were less likely to flip out somewhere on the table or even on the floor for a dog to swallow and/or us to crawl and find.

In the last few years, I’ve been able to enjoy dice and card games without some of the physical drawbacks on the computer. Sometimes I’ll meet friends
