Chris Tweddell thanked us all for coming to the game and a wonderful merienda. “I was glad that Bill was able to join us.”

And I thank my partner Anastacio Martin who was able to take time off his work to play with me.

Bridge and oodles of good food and wine are the best combination for a very fun to-gether.

Again Chris our profuse thanks!
