Dresden’s Wednesday Bridge Club met at 12:30 on Oct. 19 with 16 players present and John Harbour with his smart computer to do the scores for us. This was our quarterly club championship  game.
The worst thing that happened to one of our players, Sue Thompson of Paris, was her twin sister, Carolyn, died after a lengthy illness with cancer. Sue has been out for several weeks tending to her every need.  Carolyn was buried last Sunday.
Now the best or pleasant happening was Sue came back to play bridge and came in first O/A (overall).  
I happened to be her partner.  
Coming in second O/A were Tom Beard and Sarah Pentecost.  Tom has been out for three weeks with his sickness but is all better now.
Coming in third O/A was Roberta Meyer of Puryear and Gene Fulks of Paris.  
Flight B players were Jo Glasgow and Serena Williams, both of Union City. They were second in B
For refreshments we had raspberry honey mustard pretzel dip with wafers and crackers and poured atop of cream cheese, pimento cheese dip, pretzels and nuts, garden vegetables with ranch dressing and strawberry cake and colby jack cheese.
I have had several to ask me why I have quit writing about our presidents and first ladies.
So, did you all know about Calvin Coolidge, president from 1923-29?
The country “wanted nothing done” while Calvin Coolidge was in the White House, someone said, “and he done it.”
After moving into the White House, Coolidge put a rocking chair out on the front porch and sat there evenings smoking cigars.  He did less work and made fewer decisions than just about any other president.  We will talk more about him next week.
