• Bridge Ladies

    Bridge Ladies Sometimes I think a meteor could strike the earth and wipe out mankind with the exception of my mother’s Bridge club — Roz, Bea, Bette, Rhoda, and Jackie — five Jewish octogenarians who continue to gather for lunch and Bridge on Mondays as they have for over fifty years. When I set out to learn about the women behind the matching outfits and accessories, I never expected to fall in love with them. This is the story of the ladies, their game, and most of all the ragged path that led me back to my mother.

  2. Grrr, I live in fucking Mayberry.

  3. I love the option to donate a book to the schools.

    I’m not loving that I’m about 900 miles away from East 47th Street and not likely to get much closer before tomorrow.

    Someday!

  4. wishing i lived in NY right about now.

  5. Get someone to take video! That way those of us in Mayberry and beyond (Seattle) can watch later.

  6. I forget how I got on your blog, but a fellow writer wants to know how because he’d like to add his name to the growing community.
