Bridge Lessons and Friendship


The game of bridge is one of my passions. For the last nine years a group of my friends and me have been taking bridge lessons on Mondays in my home. Our first teacher was the late Maurice Joseph, a former Baton Rouge Bridge Center director. He patiently taught us the basics of bidding, counting cards, playing the hand, defensive strategies and general bridge etiquette. Currently, we have advanced enough to have a bridge director from New Orleans, John "Lowen" Fusilier taking us to the next level. In this photo are some of my friends, Dee Gerald, Toni Sardisco, Janet Young and Ginger Duncan, struggling to understand a new concept. The game of bridge is a life-long challenge that also develops lasting friendships. Looking for a new hobby, try bridge!
