Names and almost all place names have been changed to safeguard privacy.

Why is it entitled PLAYIN WITH THE PLAYERS ย ? ย Well, Dad was quite a funny (and sometimes not-so-funny) character. ย He would often use this expression to indicate that no one was going to ‘play’ him. ย That he was a ‘player’ himself. He would stand there and raise his eyebrows, nodding his head with his flattened hockey-before-helmet nose and smirking say: ‘You’re playin’ with the players’. ย So, then, I just decided to make ‘PLAYER’ our fictional surname.

Please note that posts have not been published chronologically but I have ordered the menu by my age in that particular story.
