Someone posted recently on Facebook that grocery shopping
these days was like being on an episode of "Chopped." I agree, only
I play "upside down." There was a recipe I wanted to make. Three
Walmart online orders and one trip to Aldi later, I finally have all
the ingredients I need. On the other hand, I now have a 5-pound
bag of onions because I needed half an onion. No problem, I'll make onion soup. Two Walmart online orders later and I only
lack one ingredient!
We can complain about toilet paper, paper towels and hand
sanitizer shortages all we want. What's the worst shortage of all?
Seeing you, our bridge family, at the club.
We've been delighted to hear from those of you who have sent us
e-mail or called. We know that some of you are playing bridge
together on Bridge Base Online. It's great to know that our little
bridge community remains connected.
No need to let the epidemic stop you from improving your game.
Merry Schainblatt is offering her Competitive Bidding class
online through Zoom, a very good meeting application that you
can run on your mobile device or your computer. It's very easy to
install and use.
Classes will begin on Wednesday, April 1, and continue on
Saturday and Wednesday mornings at ten. These classes
cover preemptive bidding, take-out doubles,
overcalls, negative doubles and other aspects of competitive
auctions. If you wish to join this class, please email Merry at
class but participants are encouraged to make a donation to the
club at this financially difficult time.
We continue to prepare for the wonderful days ahead when we
can once again enjoy each other's company at the club. There
will be no shortage of joy when that day comes.
Stay healthy, stay safe.
