Because of some other commitments, I missed out on meeting up in New Orleans with about twenty of my online Mah Jongg friends for a four-day fun fest. I have been keeping up with what went on and I know I missed a really special time (along with those beignets…or should I say, what was left of them!).
Life Magazine, that is. From the April 24th, 1924 issue…”Pa and Ma Jongg!”
What a beautiful drive from NYC to Woodstock! The leaves were changing colors and it was a peak “leaf-peeper” day. I arrived in Woodstock in plenty of time to have a look around at what turned out to be a very charming town and also to have a chance to meet and spend a few moments with the director of the movie, Joe Muszynski, and one of the producers, Christina Mengert. What wonderful people!
No posting today as I am on my way to Woodstock to do a book signing and attend the premier of Mahjong and the West at the Woodstock Film Festival…hopefully will have lots to report on tomorrow’s posting!
Yesterday was Mah Jongg Wednesday with the OMs and S1 hosted. Look at the beautiful table with a spectacular fall centerpiece that was waiting for us:
Lunch was so delicious – spicy chili, three different and wonderful kinds of cheese, cole slaw, and – YUM! – corn bread!
Read on to see the very special gift I received…
