Cards and Friends

Judy and I attended one of the weekly card game sessions last night.  There were three groups meeting for cards at the clubhouse – a small bridge group, a uker group and group for “3 to 13” and “Pass the Ace”.

Judy and Jim (Dee’s husband) checked out the Bridge group for awhile. They both want to learn how to play. Dee and I took a pass. Jim and Judy will be reading up on the basics of Bridge and in Jan. there will be a “How to Play Bridge” session. I can’t say why Dee has no desire to learn Bridge but I only play card games that can be explained or taught in about five minutes. Evidently, Bridge requires a steeper learning curve.  After Judy and Jim finished with the Bridge overview they came over to play the low brow games of 3 to 13” and “Pass the Ace” along with Dee and I.

Today we had a very nice visit with Bill and Treva, we first met them during our Navy days when I was stationed in England as an instructor at the School of Maritime Operations and Bill was at HMS Mercury (I think).  It was great getting caught up and remembering old times. We went to the Olive Garden for lunch and the visited some more back at the Cardinal. We promised them that we would come visit them after the dust settles from the holidays.

We finished off the day by inviting Jim and Dee over to share a cheese ball and fresh fruit tray.  As usual there was some good conversation. It was a good way to end the day.  Judy and I decided we would be staying in for the evening.  We are going to a pancake breakfast tomorrow morning. There is always something to do here.
All we needed was a little wine

That’s all for now, thanks for stopping by.
Next Blog: Monday.
