ON THE BACK BURNER

April 15

I play a game or two of Solitaire every morning before I start my day. It's a ritual that I do to get my mind ready for the day. I figure that the challenge of winning should be good for something. I almost always win. If I don't, I approach the same game again and take a different route. My personal observation is that I win more often when I chose a non traditional approach. I will wait to fill the empty space with a King of the right color, if that is what I have to do. I won't play an obvious card, if I think I will do better if I wait to see what card will come up next. It gives me satisfaction to win. I sometimes have to work a little harder to do the daily challenge. There are times when I have to catch up at the end of the month, if I have had a hard time winning that particular challenge. I like to fill up all of the blanks on the challenge board.I sometimes think that life isn't like a box of chocolate, it's more like a game of Solitaire..  You just don't know what you will get.Maybe I have to much time on my hands.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.
