Dresden Duplicate Bridge
Posted: Wednesday, May 16, 2012 8:00 pm
In playing duplicate bridge, we all act as if we were detectives. We try to obtain information and clues from our partners to arrive at a sound and makeable contract. We all also perceive from our opponents by their bidding or not bidding what they have or have not.
We all scheme and are conniving people.
Once we complete all the above, someone does it best, and emerges as the big winner of the day.
With four tables in play that Wednesday afternoon, Carol Ehlers and Jackye Hohman from Paris scouted around with achieving the best help in solving the problems or clues and came in first place.
Second place went to Sarah Pentecost and Tom Beard, and third went to Roberta Meyer and Gene Fulks. My partner and I did not place; we were clueless the entire afternoon.
We enjoyed chicken salad with a Southwest approach, Colby cheese, crackers, vanilla cookie sticks and a Mexican dip that was “out of this world.”
Do you believe in apologies?
In spring 1979, when President Carter visited New Hampshire, his administration was beginning to come under heavy criticism.
When a newswoman asked him whether his daughter ever bragged about her father as being president, Carter said, “No, she probably apologizes.”
