Celebrating Women for the Real World



Stuff Portrait Friday!


Friday yet again! This week, Kristine over at Random and Odd, used some of Bill’s ideas. The theme this week is “Games People Play” and we are to post pictures of…

1. A game YOU played
2. Your family game.
3. Your Games.

A GAME I PLAYED

I don’t know if you would call it a game, but growing up (besides soft ball) I fenced. As one not wanting to conform to the norm, I loved this sport. I wasn’t that great at it but I could hold my own; so, give me a foil…and watch out!

OUR FAMILY GAME

We don’t play every week but we do sit down and enjoy dominos. Personally, I like Mexican train and Chicken Foot. Big G likes straight dominoes and G2 just likes to win.

MY GAME

I love to play Backgammon, but I have to beg and plead for someone in the house to play with me, so most of the time I have to resort to playing on the net. I am actually pretty good and won second in the only tournament I ever entered (back a few lifetimes ago).

.

For bonus points I’ve added this book. I read this in my late teens and it is still one of my favorites. It always amazed me how I could see myself and others engaged in the games the book describes. It is worth the read if you have the time and does give you good suggestions to stop the games.

Did you play?

    I’m so happy I picked this week…actually, Bill picked it.

    Seeing these games make me want to grab the kids and teach them how to play backgammon.

    Fencing…you rock!

    I was wondering who would interpret games as mind games and how they would depict that, thakns for the book suggestion!

    I have loved a good game of backgammon since my college days. We used to play for hours. My husband, however, will no longer play with me as I kick his ass every time. Big baby! So, I plan to teach my son this summer to have someone at home to play with. (Son loves chess).

    I just learned how to play Backgammon last year on Pogo. My great aunt taught me how to play dominoes. God, I miss her.

    I was a softball junkie too.
