What a lovely evening for bridge. We had the doors open to the late summer air, it wasn’t quite the ‘Summer Wind’ of Sinatra, but balmy it was, quite perfect in fact.
We had some challenges tonight. This time it had nothing to do with the computer, which behaved itself. The urn didn’t heat the water! Goodness gracious me! We had to play right through without our usual tea and coffee break. Disastrous? No! But irritating nonetheless and another thing on our list of items to attend to.
And now to the contests that took place tonight. The two old guys did it with aplomb, coupled with style and a dash of luck. But such is life. The elements were favourable, the hands were kind and the bids were, for the most part, on the money!
That’s correct, Ian and his struggling partner did it tonight with a little over 60%, followed by Di and Barbara and Helen and Pauline.
We look forward to Thursday, as usual, when we’ll resume where we left off tonight. See you then.
On their wedding night a couple arrive at their hotel room and the phone rings. The husband answers and talks to his friend about a bridge hand. The conversation continues for hours as the friend tells him how he went down in six spades.
When it finally ends his distraught wife is in tears and says “How can you be so inconsiderate? That was terrible!”
” You’re right, darling. All he had to do was take a finesse.”
That’s all for now,
