My friend Donna, here in Florida, offered to teach me how to play REAL
I have played on the computer for years.
Never knew what the symbols on the tiles were called.
I took these pictures of Sandy's Mahjongg set, which was beautiful.
The little tile bag was hand sewn by one of her friends.
Sandy's set is black with vibrant colors on them!
I learned there is an "official playing chart"
showing all hands possible.
So confusing at first, but Roxi and I just sat and watched a few games.
I felt like I was beginning to understand it.
Donna had to leave and I took her seat, which must have been lucky
and I started to play my first game with Barb, Sandy and Kathy.
Roxi sat near me and nodded whenever I pointed out that I thought
I might "have" something!
After about 10 minutes into the game,
I asked if I could say
Sandy said "If you think you have it, go ahead...
Everyone, including me, was surprised that I really did have
My very first game EVER
and I win in record time...
so they told me!!
I loved this game! Thanks to Donna, Sandy, Barb and Kathy
for teaching me the game~ I know I have some more to learn
but I really do think I "get" it!
I had to leave to get ready for my guests who were arriving Wednesday at 5~
I look forward to next week!
At the airport, I found Laura, in her pretty red scarf, making her way here from Oklahoma!
And not far behind her, Mary Annis and Meigan, from Cleveland!
The girls loved that the Paparazzi greeted them!
We headed straight to Coconut Jacks and of course I
wanted a picture of them in the BIG BLUE CHAIR!
Aren't they the cutest?
Cheers to some fun girl time!
Look how great the patio looks!
It is so great honey~ Thanks for the cozy place to hang with friends and family!
You're the BEST!
