Irving’s Tally-Ho Playing Cards
“For me, the cards represent numerous games that Irving tried to teach me as a kid and which I could not get and so, could not play. Sometimes I’d run out of the sun room crying feeling so stupid that I didn’t get the simplest card games and Irving’s wife, Hope would march in and give him hell for making me cry. He never meant to and he never tried to intimidate anyone, let alone a little kid.”
