A B C'S OF CORONA
The other day our young grandson said that things are going to
start being referenced as Before Corona and After Corona.
It will be a different world. There will be many challenges to face
as we move forward. Many things will be better than they were
before this crisis.
We all can appreciate how good things were before this corona
virus pandemic. In retrospect we realize that most of
our problems were minor.
Concurrent with Corona
Yesterday, my husband and I decided to have a picnic breakfast
under the Belleair Bridge by the public boat ramps. Not a single
parking spot was available except for one handicapped spot. Nearly
every space was filled with (mostly) pick-up trucks with boat trailers.
That made me think about what people are doing to "escape."
Obviously, those of you who own boats are opting for time on
the open seas.
Some of us are reading. The Pinellas County library system
recently posted that in March they had a record number of
digital books checked out. Some people are binge watching TV
and some people are just binging. Someone posted on Facebook
that, for weeks now, she has not worn anything that didn't have
an elastic waistband.
Although escaping to the bridge club is not an option, there
are bridge-related escapes. An increasing number of you are
playing on Bridge Base On-line in the Support Your Club games.
I receive a list of the names of those of you who have played in
those games. The number of different names on that list
continues to increase. Thank you so much for your support
and the revenue you are generating for the club.
This past week, Merry Schainblatt launched her
Competitive Bidding Class using the Zoom meeting
technology. On Wednesday she had 47 students.
Thank you, Merry, for that super initiative!
The class is free; Merry does ask for contributions to
be made to the club. If you wish to participate in
the class, please e-mail Merry at email@example.com.
This month's Bridge Bulletin, available through our club's
homepage, has some options that can be accessed through
the Bridge Winners website. We are investigating other
technology related activities to keep you engaged with the game
we all love so much.
We appreciate hearing from you. Please stay in touch
with us and with each other and stay healthy, stay safe.
