As a child I had my own Domino set it was a game I enjoyed playing, I used to play with my sisters, but the pieces started slowly disappearing, I couldn’t find them anywhere, I think my sisters took them as they were jealous of me having the game, I never ever found them to this day what happened to them, I would have loved to know where they went.
I had three sisters, we had a board game each, used to take turns playing the games, the main one I remember was Snakes and Ladders, but we never played them very much as there were always fights about someone cheating so I never really got into playing board games.
These days I play cards on my Computer or Cellphone. I have one on my cellphone called “Solitaire Suite” which has some fifty card games on it, I have become addicted to one called “Addiction” I haven’t won a game yet, but I will, I have now six stars, I have only had my cell phone a couple of months, I do limit my time playing as I don’t want it to become a bad habit “always having my cell phone in front of my eyes” after all I do have a husband, home, and farm to look after.
I just need to mention another habit I have, that is jigsaw puzzles, I know that’s not a game but I love doing 1000 pieced puzzle, especially at night, sometimes very late in the evening, if it wasn’t for my husband telling me it was bedtime I most likely would stay up all night doing them, keeps my brains turning over when I’m not writing.
As for Dominoes, what I really enjoy watching, is Dominoes the Toppling of Dominoes Stones, all the energy arranging them, the beautiful mosaics that are created with them, I wonder how long it rates to pick up all those thousands and thousand pieces after they have been toppled?
