Comments: OK, here we go with multiple stories on this nice one. Story number 1 - it took me three tries at this tray until Icalled it 'good'. First was a rust bucket, second was pretty good and this one is minty. I really like this tray for several reasons. Story number 2 - the colors - I went to Texas A&M University, so the Maroon and White are favorite colors of mine. Story number 3 - It is a Mexican tray and most everyone knows I like them. Story number 4 - Dominoes. Now of course they aren't playing real dominoes. They are play straight dominoes, which where I learned to play was for and I quote from the legendary party animal Glenn Starr "The only people who play straight dominoes are prisoners and school kids." '42' was the game. Across between hearts and spades where you can look like you have a great hand one minute and then a piece of junk the next. A blast of a game, which can easily be played drunk or sober. Most of my games took place in the Dixie Chicken with a nice cold Pearl in my hand. Would take a book to fill up recolections of the Dixie Chicken and most, I am not sure, I would want my mom to read. Oh to be in my early 20's again....
