Butterfly again

smile … picking up my flys again: I did butterfly for the length of the pool. Feeling that my feet are way too low … more problems will be discovered and corrected, hopefully soon.

3 As and spaces

without much support: another Aces and spaces.

My partner opened with 1♦️ who has all hcp in the suit.
2♦️ me: 8 hcp, 4 diamonds

Upon hearing my response, my partner jumped to 4♦️.

Actually, our hands are pretty lousy.

Your 2D response indicates you have d’s BUT neither of you have anything else. Partner’s response to you s/b 3d. Then pass all around since neither of you have any other suits. Partner barely has opening points,12, you have 8, not enough for game. You have aces and spaces.

Stiff back day

Played back to back: last night and this morning – haven’t done this in a long while.

Still trying to work on my forehand and serve, while my backhand is kaput, totally undependable. … and my lower back is in mild pain.

Serve: left arm stays up

… the blurry video shows: my left arm stays up longer … but my torso doesn’t turn much …

A new Chinese card game 掼蛋

I’ve been playing this new card game lately. 27 cards each hand – a lot to get ride of, which is the goal.


2017年1月,作为趣味棋牌竞技化的项目之一, 国家体育总局棋牌运动管理中心颁布了统一的淮安掼蛋竞技规则.


Unlike bridge, this game can be noisy and sometimes players will get into fight – although I’ve not seen this yet…

Bored … 无聊?

What do you do when feeling bored?

I’d play bridge or tennis.

One of my friends … bought a car -:)

The blue moon 2023 @ pool

The Next Full Moon is a Supermoon and a Blue Moon
, and Rakhi Purnima posted by nasa on August 24, 2023.

For the past two days, our skies were cloudy, perhaps from Idalia that passing through Florida recently. This morning as I was heading to the pool, the moon was high and mighty.
