go ahead and shuffle


When I was a kid, my Great Aunt Laurabelle had one of these.  The family was big into playing Canasta and everyone knows you have to have a card shuffler if you’re playing Canasta.

She was a fun, loving, generous Great Aunt, but she never let me touch her card shuffler.

As a woman in my 60’s, I was thrilled when I ordered my own from Amazon.  (I ask you:  do we ever grow up???)

Now that the Funny Grandson and I are playing hours of UNO, I brought out the card shuffler.  He loves it!  We ignore his father’s warnings about using it too much or breaking it.  He can use it any time he wants and as much as he wants!

And he has Aunt Laurabelle to thank for that.
