In Fun

I was a young kid when my Grandpa showed me these little rectangles called dominoes that were bought from Mexico. I was only 12 years old and had never seen such a thing. Then when everybody saw the kit they were excited to see one because they knew how to play except me. So every family party or get together they would play and I would watch or my Grandpa would let me play from his game until I learned. Once I got better every get together you would see me at the table playing versus my family and grandparents. There was never a time that we were together and didn't play until my Grandpa got sick and passed away and we never played again. We never played again because it was like good memory of my Grandpa and it would make us very sad and we also would want to damage it. With that same kit I hope to show my kids how to play and tell them about their Grandpa and how great man he was.
