Linda Lee — My personal bridge blog

A sad story

I remember watching a movie about Loretta Lynn.  At one point she turns to the audience in tears and says I know I can tell you this because you are my friends.  Well that is how I feel about you as well.  In the last few days I have had some sad news.  Isabelle cannot play in the World Championships in 2009 and so we have both dropped off our women’s team for the upcoming CWTC.  Isabelle and I do intend to play in 2010 in Russia however and we will sort that out in future.  I would like to thank the members of my former CWTC team who sent me encouraging emails.

I am not sure what I am going to do this year.  I might try to get a team for the CNTC and play with my son Colin or maybe find someone else to play with on a CWTC team or skip the whole thing entirely.  I have this strange idea about going to Brazil as a kind of reporter/blogger.

Anyway, the whole thing is very depressing and I decided to take a few days off from my bridge Internet search.  I really liked playing with Isabelle and before with Pamela and I will miss the whole thing.   Thank goodness for Ray who plied me with cake and love yesterday. 

Tomorrow I will be okay and will get back to serious blogging and work.  Tomorrow I will think about my bridge future.  Not today though.

You may feel sad now but the competition will still be there in 2 years’ time. Just remember, when a door closes a window opens. Besides I hear the triffice is terrible in Sao Paulo.

Actually I am feeling a lot better today (September 12th) I realized I don’t have any bridge playing responsibilities and I am free to do whatever I want and play with whoever I want, at least for now.

I am sure that there will be new adventures.
