It’s about 2130, the temperature has come down a little, but Troy is panting loudly behind me, tongue lolling, the mosquitoes are gathering, so here I am, fingers ready to type, hoping the little pests will leave me long enough to let me finish this mail. Before leaving the subject of mosquitoes, my belief that […]

Last night when I got home, I was struck by my personal reaction to the events which had just unfolded over the past few hours. There we sat, North/South at table 1, comfortably ensconced in a cocoon of confidence in our ability to handle all the difficult hands that awaited our competence as bridge players. […]

Ten tables, enthusiasm all over the room, concentration in Spades, furrowed brows, slight mutters from here and there, the good hands always with the opposition, you know where I’m going with this!

Good morning to you all from Rynfield Close, in Country View. I would have written earlier, but I’ve been struggling for a few hours to get a Vodacom signal, therefore no Gmail, no blank sheet to accommodate my ramblings, no results, no cerebral musings, nothing till the much advertised service provider actually provides! Forgive me […]

But, there are still a few weeks of bridge until the year end close down, so let’s enjoy these first and […]

Five and a half tables, sit out at table 1, six table Howell. Then the fun began, with some beautiful, interesting hands.When you open the attachment for last night’s hands, just look at, for instance, board 7, which contains latent drama, with potential for 5H or 5S, depending on where you sit! Then there are […]

Good morning all, from a a gloomy day here at Country View, but, hey, that’s good, isn’t it? Rain in the offing? Filling up the Sandpan? It was distressing to walk along the shore of the dam yesterday and see scores of dead fish washed up and many others flopping around in the shallows. It […]

There were four tables last night, a little quieter after the ten tables of Saturday, no Mitchell movement followed by an Interwoven Howell, no Camembert with walnuts, none of the delicious grapes, the curry and rice! Oh well, back to earth, but what a pleasant evening of bridge, played in a laid back fashion by […]

Bridge Club Championship 17 Nov 2018

After everything was over last night, I arrived home and sat down with a cup of coffee, watched our Springboks beat Scotland, fell asleep in the chair, resurfaced, watched Ireland beat New Zealand, Yes, Yes!, fell asleep again, resurfaced later and just couldn’t fall asleep again. The Adrenalin from yesterday’s events was still coursing through […]
