Vintage Thingie Thursday


Today is bingo Vintage Thingie Thursday with Coloradolady.  Many great vintage things can be found when you drop by http://coloradolady.blogspot.com


These vintage cards were the only way we knew how to pay bingo.  There were times we had to use corn kernel as our markers. Some used markers like these red ones. We never had this type.

Times have really changed.  Most all the bingo places have computers such as this one.  Some are different though.  It is not nearly as much fun as playing the old way.



You still have a choice of playing the computer or papers.

If you play the papers, you must use a dabber like these to mark your numbers.


However, there are still more changes.

Seniors playing this way, mark their aches and pains.
I rarely ever buy things when at antique malls as I have more"stuff" than I need now.  The lady with me on this outing did buy it to share with others,

I used to play the old way! The senior bingo is so funny! Are you relate to Colorado Lady in some way, can I ask your connection? At first I had thought it was your other blog.

Our kids and I loved playing Bingo whenever we visited my parents on vacation. We would make it a point to go with my mom to the local VFW Bingo nights. I have never seen Bingo on computers as an option! Wow!

I love the Over the Hill bingo cards :o) How fun!

Blessings & Aloha!

What a great post! I love bingo and your vintage items are great. Bingo is big in the UK with a whole "bingo lingo"...developed over a century ago with phrases for the numbers which are very funny.

This is a fun post LV. I used to belong to a bingo club of 21 women. We had a blast. We played at a different home each week. We owned the tables and chairs needed and passed them to the next person each week who was the hostess. You just reminded me of this and the great fun and friendships we made.

Happy weekend LV.
Love, Jeanne
