Computer Card Solitaire

It was Christmas time and my folks were visiting. My dad loved to play cards and this particular night he couldn't wait to get started.

"Why is it taking so long?" he said.

"Mom's playing Shanghai." I responded.

"She's addicted to that'll never find me staring at the computer playing a stupid game hour after hour."

"We'll see about that." I thought, and the idea for a computer card solitaire game was born.

The entire story, including my run-in with Microsoft, is included in my book, Lucky That Way.
