Domino Rally

We have been delivering goodies to our friend over the Bank Holiday, one cooker, one double memory foam mattress, 2 sets of unused bed linens, a DVD player and a pair of tree loppers to be precise.
He is very pleased and offered to give us something for them, but we were adamant that it was the least we could do after all he has done for us.
When we get together, the TV is ignored (we have totally different tastes anyway though we shouted in unison at the telly over the World Cup recently) and we play dominoes instead.
Not your normal set of 6s, but 9s.
9sIt is quite something to have so many spots , and 5s and 7s especially are confusing at times.
We usually sit in the same places and have about 10 games in an evening.
There are 55 pieces, so we have 18 each and whoever starts with the double 9 picks up the last one.
I rarely win by the way, so last night I suddenly found myself 3 games up to the lads NIL, and our friend was convinced that we had some secret sign language or code going on and suggested we changed places.
Hubs and I were in fits as it was just the luck of the draw, but we decided to play it up a little with the occasional wink, nudge, or footsie under the table, all of which were far from discreet just to tease him.
I lost the next game and Hubby won the one after, and before long it was 3 games each.
We enjoy our games, and it’s one thing our friend misses when we’ve gone as he lives alone and the dog hasn’t quite got the hang of it doms


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
