Mexican Train Stops in Taos!
When Mary's parents passed through northern New Mexico this week on a whirlwind visit after attending the Kiwanis International annual convention in Las Vegas, Nevada, we all convened at our son and daughter-in-law's house in Taos for a fun night of Mexican Train, pizza, wine, and lots of laughs (the serious countenances in the following photo not withstanding....)
Mexican Train is a strategic domino game popular among the retired set, but we and our son and his wife are totally hooked and play almost every time we get together. Although we all become rather loud and excitable (and occasionally vulgar) due to the tension induced by the stressors inherent in the game, it's all in good fun, and last night our daughter-in-law Bevin took home the prize. We're proud of how she has learned so fast, but I'm determined to beat her next time!
