My Thoughts

A summary of my daily thoughts.

Wednesday, March 21, 2007


I am trying to get involved with the Frisco Lakes activities. Monday I went to the Canasta group meeting. I had not played Canasta since high school. Canasta is not difficult to learn, and it rapidly came back to me. There was a big turnout for the group. They meet every Monday at 1 PM. I am not certain that I want to play every week, but it will be fun to play occasionally.
Today I went to the Mahjong group. I have always wanted to learn how to play the game. My mother had a Mahjong set, and I played with the tiles when I was a little girl. Well, after my first session of real play I am totally confused. I do not know if I have what it takes to master that game. I found a website this morning that had the rules of the game. I really could not make a connection between the rules that I had read and the way real people were playing.
Unfortunately I have found something that I really like to play. Windows Vista has a game called Mahjong Titans. It takes advantage of the new 3D Vista graphics. It is played with tiles like the traditional Mahjong game, but that is the only similarity. The object of the Windows Vista game is to remove the tiles in pairs until no tiles are left. This game is addictive, and I have been wasting too much time on it.
