Patricia is a Life Master – Mon. June 1, 2015

My sister Patricia became a Life Master a couple of weeks ago at a club game in Denver having obtained the required 0.09 silver points. So, the photographer took her picture at the Regional in Sacramento.Patricia left today to spend a few days in Oakland with my sister, Joan, and Joan’s husband, Ralph, before heading home to Denver. We drove Patricia down to meet Joan and Ralph at the Cheese Factory in Walnut Creek. Erin went with us. And Joan’s daughter Janet Smith Keeter who is the city manager of Orinda joined us as well as my sister-in-law, Pat Canty, widow of my brother Tim.

Patricia and Clark with her complimentary sundae in celebration of becoming a Life Master.

The waitress asked us if it was anybody’s birthday or a special occasion, and we said “no” . Then Clark mentioned that Patricia had just become a Life Master. So, for dessert the waitress brought a little compote of ice cream and whipped cream which I am pointing to below.

Patricia and I played 2 sessions a day for 7 days at the tournament plus the previous Sat. and Sunday at the local club.
So, it will be a letdown to have our fun bridge days come to an end. Erin really enjoys talking to Patricia.

    What a wonderful family gathering. Congratulations to Pat on her bridge achievement.
    I didn’t know Joan’s daughter was City Manager in Orinda. That’s a challenging job with all the political ins and outs. How long has she been manager? Nice that Erin can enjoy chatting with Patricia.

    Great pictures! Aunt Barbara – just so you know – Life Master Patricia prefers to be called “Gram Poobah” (well, we’re trying to make it stick, anyhow).

    Huh, I’m really surprised she never mentioned that…
