The Anonymous Widower

The Things I Forgot To Bring

I didn’t bring everything I needed on the cruise.

The main omission on my part, was not to bring a thick coat and plenty of cold weather clothing. But at least the jacket I did bring was very waterproof.

I also forgot my temperature and humidity meter from Maplin. It would have enabled me to do some experiments to find the atmosphere that is best for my health.

I also forgot to bring a pack of cards, which I was able to borrow on board. So I spent the last day at sea, playing Canfield.

Playing Canfield

And as always, I beat the bank. But then Mr. Canfield in Saratoga Springs made a fortune, as there were more mugs than people like me.

Incidentally, the rules I use, were from an old edition of Hoyle’s Games given to me at about eleven and are tougher than those generally used or indeed given in Wikipedia.

So this might be why, Mr. Canfield made a fortune.

I don’t gamble on cards, but if any casino decided to allow punters to play Canfield, I’d certainly check them out!

I think the only other thing I forgot was a shoehorn.
