Members of the Red Hat Society New Mexico Roadrunner Chapter from Alamogordo, New Mexico dined and played games at the Nuckleweed Restaurant in La Luz, New Mexico on Saturday, March 23, 2019.
We always love going to this restaurant because the food is excellent and it is actually located in the Sacramento Mountains on La Borcita Canyon Road, a lovely drive this time of year.
Rosanna Heath was hostess for this event and she had little gift bags containing favors for each of us as well as door prizes. She had asked that we each bring four quarters for a dice game and a favorite joke or riddle to share.
After partaking of a delicious lunch, several members ordered their amazing brownie sundae for dessert which is the size of a dinner plate and a lot of sharing took place.
The dice game consists of three dice on which there are the letters L, R, or C and dots. One rolls the dice and passes a quarter left, right and/or to the center depending on what comes up on the dice. Dots don't count so if you get one, two or three dots, this is a good thing. When your quarters get down to two, you only throw two dice and down to one, you throw one die. When you run out of quarters you are out of the game. This actually takes a while and we had a lot of fun playing. The last person with a quarter or quarters wins all the quarters in the center. The winner was Margie Purcella aka Countess of Karr Canyon.
