Romance and Chance

By valerie on

I’ve always said that there are a lot of creative ways to use Zufall…but I have to say I never imagined this one. A zufaller recently confessed that she and her husband had used the dice to pick a page in the Kamasutra on date night. My jaw is still recovering from dropping so far.

Surprises at Cates Park

The weekend roll was NE/2 – we had set our base value at 10 minute driving and we thought we were headed for deep cove.  We put on clothes fit for kayaking and hit the road.  Much to our surprise, the traffic delayed us and after 20 minutes of driving (a roll of 2 times
