Today my column is going to be about healthy habits for one’s mind; and it is also going to be about bridge.
In order to be sure you have a “full deck” later in life, you should play bridge early on.
Despite all the medications doctors prescribe, the best way to save your brain is to use it. That’s why so many seniors are taking college classes.
A less expensive way is to play bridge. According to a study at the University of California, bridge also, without fail, strengthens the immune system. Select whichever way is best for you, but do it.
We had all of this going on last week. Tuesday night’s Bridge Club had several there to prove themself and to achieve first place.
First place went to the artful play of Kathi Wilson and Becky Bennett.
Second place went to Tom Beard and Toni Pritchett and third place went to Margie Cannon of Union City and Bertha Henry of Martin.
This was Margie’s first time to play with our group and she loved it.
Wednesday had a wonderful thought-provoking game of keeping minds alert.
First place went to Jackie Hohman and Ruthie Jenkins of Paris; claiming second place were Bob Sanner of Union City and Toni Pritchett; and taking third place were Sara Pentecost and Tom Beard. Published in The WCP 2.2.12
