Dresden Duplicate Bridge
Posted: Friday, May 11, 2012 8:00 pm
The Dresden Duplicate Club had two games the week of April 23. A total of six tables were in play for the fun-loving girls and boys of special tactics in the creative work of playing bridge.
They were present to see who would arrive at the highest scores in this challenging game of bridge.
While achieving their feat, they nibbled on nuts, cheeses, crackers and a strawberry cake. And Becky Bennett’s homemade chocolate pecan fudge was all the rage for the evening of April 24. Winners were – April 24, first-Kathy Wilson and Susie German; second-Bertha Henry and Jane Young; and third-Diana Neren and Margie Evans. Winners April 25 were – first, Carol Ehlers and Jackye Hohman; second, Alma Ford and Bertha Henry; and tying for third, Tom Beard, Sarah Pentecost, Sue Thompson and Toni Pritchett.
In another anecdote about Pres. Eisenhower and his wife. Mamie, it said when “Ike” was Chief of Staff after World War II, his wife had occasion to entertain a British Ambassador, Lord Halifax and his wife, at tea. But just as she was pouring the tea, Eisenhower said, “Would anybody rather have a drink?” “Well …,” said Halifax, hesitantly. “No you don’t,” cried Mamie. “I went to all sorts of trouble to get the sort of tea Ike told me he used to have with you in England. Now you take your tea, and after that you can have a drink.”
After their tea, they had their drink and took it into the bridge room, where they played a hand of bridge and all got high, scores, that is. Published in The WCP 5.10.12
