Dresden Duplicate Bridge Club was in session at 6 p.m. Tuesday. We were delighted to have Peggy Smith of Dresden to join us for the evening game. She came to play and had as her partner Sandra Klutts. We had lots of good things to eat at the Tuesday game and for the next Wednesday’s games. There was Mexican taco dip, cheese Rice Crispy treats, hot crab dip, banana nut bread, deluxe brownies, calico corn relish. Lucy Bogue of Milan brought the most delicious butternut brittle cake. Lucy doesn’t play bridge, but her husband, Jack, does. They never miss a meeting unless they go to see relatives in Connecticut. He plays bridge and she goes to visit her sister Shirley Lopez who lives here in Dresden. We also had three kinds of shrimp, crab and lobster dip and hot Ro-tel meat dip in a crock-pot with all sorts of crackers. Alma Ford attracted much attention when she trumped her very own ace! The attraction continued to her outstanding brownie cake with Hershey Bars for icing. We do have a good time eating and talking about world events and politics. Then we take time to play bridge. For the three games we have had 11 tables in play and in one Wednesday game we had Becky Bennett to come over from her Tuesday Club to play with the different group. Thank you Becky for coming. Tied for first were Sandra Klutts/ Peggy Smith and Diana Nerrer/ Margie Evans from Hickman. Wednesday winners were first place, Jackye Hohman and Carol Ehlers from Paris; second and third, Ruthie Jenkins and Joni Martin of Paris and Alma Ford of Martin and Linda Jennings of Dresden Wednesday winners first, Becky Bennett and Toni Pritchett, Dresden; second, Sue Thompson, Paris and Jack Bogue, Milan; third, Sarah Pentecost, Beard, Dresden. I was going to talk about women’s suffrage, but decided it would take a month. It is so very interesting. It took some wonderful hard-working ladies making speeches and traveling from place to place to get this accomplished. In 1920, after 72 years of trying to get the amendment passed, they succeeded. The Perfect “36” exhibit was mounted at the University of Memphis Art Museum from July 6-Aug. 18, 1995, to celebrate the 75th anniversary of woman’s suffrage. There are a number of books at the Ned McWherter Library with lots of brilliant writers who tell all. I suggest each and every lady read how difficult it was for our forerunners to get the bill passed allowing us to vote.wcp 10-7-08
