• 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.

Join me in wishing her a big congratulations. Better yet, buy a copy of the fucker. Truth: We love you Sherry!

  14. Ah Sherry, there it is! It looks right, somehow here on Betsy’s blog! A big congrats to you – I remember when you were talking about it. TALKING. You mentioned you were turning 52 and with 52 weeks in the year…you wanted to step out of your comfort zone – I mean, not in these words exactly (close enough, right???) and anyway, you talked about it and I thought, “wow, that’s an excellent idea.” And it was!
