I heart my dog’s head – Rebus fun

LuckyCap36SQ200When I was a kid, I had “too many sisters” and thus was relegated to the eastern end of the large room in the basement, the rest of the room was occupied by a gargantuan billiard table. That was OK until friends & family came over to shoot pool until the wee hours. I made the best of it, I moved my dresser and bookshelf to what I judged to be the “property line”, but my mother or somebody would move it back against the wall while I was gone with the Schwinn.

One fun thing, there was Lucky beer, although I had no taste for it, I loved the puzzles inside the caps. Got to thinking about that, and consulted Mr. Google- Lo and behold, there are collectors. I found this awesome cap-trading site. This notation was especially touching;

On Feb. 26,2012, Skip from Kent, WA bought a Lucky cap, #36. “Easy
come, easy go.” His friend who shared puzzle caps with him has died.
His buddy was such a fan of the puzzles and always known to have a
six-pack nearby for more puzzles to be solved. Skip wants this cap for
this time of remembering.

My friend Mario passed away a while back, I can see how Skip would find some comfort in a little thing like that. But I’m getting maudlin*. Check out the complete set of Beer-cap Rebus puzzles at JokeLibrary.net. We are not affiliated with that site, we just like them.

* If I ever have a goth daughter, I am going to name her Maude Lynn.

Have your say!
