Playin’ dots

Dots on the sidewalk.jpgCranium (N&R) might be the craze in other parts of town, but in the Aycock Neighborhood we play Mexican Train Dominoes, or, as its known around here… “Dots”.

Neighbors Matt and Mel intoduced everyone to the game last winter and now a bunch of folks, both kids and adults, are hopelessly addicted. 

A couple of times every week you’ll hear on the sidewalk, “Dots tonight?” and the venue is discussed.  We either set up the game in some dining room, or, this time of year, on a neighbor’s front porch.  The other night the gathering was on our sidewalk.
