Declan the Donplayer approached me last Monday and was talking about some book I lent
him about Defence. Said something about Waterstones and the price being in pounds.
Declan played 70 hands this week scoring 47.7% and holding at a rating of 1481.
Not bad for a chap who never goes to a bridge club or a lesson.

Also this week in the local pub a lad with 4200 euros worth  of body art approached me and asked
me could I teach him bridge. I said .. "Sure" .. as I proceeded to learn about Japanese body art
and monsters that will jump off the skin and protect you.
