    I remember playing dominoes with my grandmother. She was a serious domino player. There was no winning with her unless you actually won.

    It seems like every one that I've seen playing dominoes are very serious about the game. Why is that I wonder. I have several sets of dominoes that my mother collected through the years. No two alike in looks though some have the same number of dominoes in cases. I'm still trying to figure out how I can use them for a craft project.:rolleyes:

    I enjoyed playing dominoes with her. She lived on the end of our road, where it joined the highway. There were times when I planned on going into town to find some of my friends but would stop by to visit with her for a moment, since she survived my grandfather by several years and was alone, and I would end up spending the day there instead. She was serious about winning, though.

    Much too dangerous by today's standards for little Johnny.
