THIS WEEK AT THE CLUB…
*** Season 72: Wk 7 of 25 – June 12, 2018 ***
- One tale told at the Club this week was of two fair ladies and two faint hearts. It opened with Pam’s play, OPERATER. Shirley correctly doubted its spelling, but no less doubted the dictionary — so, she left it on the board, and went ahead with her own phony, EASINGS. Pam, in her turn, wavered about challenging, decided against, and tossed the ball back to Shirley, fronting it with a T to make the board’s third phony, TEASINGS. It, too, remained in place. § These plays, however, were eclipsed by Asher’s phonies, this week. In Game 2, he got away with MATRICIAN (our chauvinist dictionary only recognizes PATRICIAN, aristocrats and noblemen of the male persuasion), but it was in Game 3 that he really got creative. With Q, J and a blank on his rack, he played QUIJOTES, a variant of QUIXOTIC (idealistic, unrealistic) that, sadly for him, is recognized only in Spanish. Opponent Alice lost no time in dispatching his play. § Aryeh and Madeline celebrated their Golden Wedding Anniversary with the Club this week — raising a glass, along with an array of delicious snacks. A possible secret to their long and happy marriage? For 35 of their 50 years, the Wetherhorns have been playing weekly at the Club.
