Play Mah Jongg, that’s what! And since yesterday was Mah Jongg Wednesday, the OMs were all together, this time at J’s apartment.
It was a particularly nasty day in NYC, with rain coming down full force all day. Even so, J’s apartment was warm and welcoming, as always. While waiting for S2 and K to arrive, four of us sat down to play while Sebastian had a snooze and then a big stretch:
First hand played and I was so lucky – I started out playing an Atomic hand but then I picked up a Joker so that was the end of that. Fortunately, I had a good alternative hand and as it turned out, it was so nice to start the day with Mah Jongg!
I had a good day today and so did everyone else – here are some of the winning hands…Of course, we had to break for a delicious lunch – Southwestern Chicken Salad and cornbread…could this be our signature lunch? Yum! And just as soon as it started, lunch was over and we were back at the game table…The money keeps adding up – we have been discussing different ways to spend some of our loot…perhaps betting on a winning horse at the Kentucky Derby?!! Please note that I said a “winning” horse…why would we bet on a loser?!!
I love playing this hand – and once again I was so lucky to pick up Jokers to complete the Like Numbers.Check out how few tiles have been discarded when J declared Mah Jongg…and on an Atomic hand, no less!J’s husband surprised her with a special surprise gift – how thoughtful is he?!
Another great day for the OMs – and even with the nasty weather, it was nothing but sunshine that rained down on us!
