I was looking for an author named P.D. East and got him mixed up with another one named P.D. James (Inspector Dalgliesh). When I found P.D. East he helped inspire another author John Howard Griffin. Thanks folks. By the way, where's Daphne? I found it closer to Mobile than to Birmingham.

The thing is, if you're too ill to go to the office, then you're too ill to play live.

Was that where journalist leads came from? Or was it zero or two higher? By the way, congratulations Michael and Floyd.

Indigent? Don't you mean Indigenous? Indigent has to do with income.

Linda, I won't argue about old Chris. Maybe we should have the great Thanksgiving Pizza.

Same as the Monday holiday for Christopher Columbus. The sailors on the Nina, the Pinta and the Santa Maria saw land on October the twelfth.

I learned Brozell at the Bridge Center of Northern Virginia in 1977. Clubs and hearts, Diamonds and Hearts, Hearts and Spades, and Spades and an unspecified minor. That was Paul and Trudy Cooper's club in Crystal City (Arlington). Yes I knew about the Thursday night Unit Games even back then. My unit's was (and still is) at Beth-El in Alexandria. Washington Bridge League's was (and still is) at Ohr Kodesh in Chevy Chase, Maryland.

Error correction. It was Wednesday, October 9, 2019 (which happened to be Yom Kippur). Information just updated to the ABA Website this morning. May his memory be a blessing.

1993? At that time, it was during my layoff from competitive play as I dropped out in 1981, came back in 1987 when the nationals (predecessor to the North American Bridge Championships) were in Baltimore, dropped out again in 1988 and came back for good in 1998.
Were pursuing other things at the time.

Of course, the plate is high and outside. But that's another story. Too many stories, including another District 4 chemical engineer named Dave Treadwell. I'm sure I can find more in 11, as well as the 4 and 20's.

Don't forget Ebbetts Field also. Rex Barney later became the Orioles' in-house announcer.

Matt, when you're able, do you remember Bobby Thomson and Ralph Branca? In the Polo Grounds in October 1951. Willie Mays was waiting in the wings.
I'm also well aware of Hank Greenberg (Tigers), Sandy Koufax (Dodgers) and Shawn Green (Blue Jays). By the way, I used to make Blueberry Muffins when the Orioles played against the Blue Jays. This was back when Cal Ripken, Jr. had the playing streak and Joe Carter was with the Blue Jays. Thank you.

Does anyone remember the Polo Grounds, when Willie Mays caught a long fly ball off of Vic Wertz?

I pay him $1 each time. It's not my lunch money. Every so often I ask him to play in the once-a-week American Bridge Association game, since once upon a time Jade was double. He was one of the first people in bridge history to make Diamond in both organizations. He remembers when Julius Fields (GNYBA, District 24) was a professional with Alvin Ailey company. Any more questions, that's another story and you're welcome to send me a note.

Another Giant. We already know about Col. Robert Friend (District 23) and Dr. George Rosenkranz (District 16).

In District 6 we no longer publish Table Talk due to the costs or printing and mailing. Most of our stuff is available online now.
