Rain, rain, rain ....
.... and gues what? More rain tomorrow!!! Tonight we played jass (klaverjassen in dutch) with Dieuwke and Eric. It was long time ago we picked up the cards. But it was really fun. You play it with two pairs opposite each other. (Better not play it with your husband probably ; ).
In France and North-America there are similar games Belote and Tarbish."Jas" in klaverjassen means "jacket" and stands for "trump card". In klaverjassen the highest trump card is the farmer. They also say it comes from the french word "jacques" for farmer.
