Yesterday was Mah Jongg Wednesday and S2 hosted. We skipped getting together last week because everyone was out of town and it was so good to get back together – wow – skipping a week seems like we skipped months!! J is still in Europe and we all can’t wait to see her and catch up on her travels upon her return next week.
S2 prepared a beautiful lunch – as always – and the table was also beautifully set. We all enjoyed a wonderful poached salmon with a delicious cucumber sauce along with an Israeli cous cous salad. Dessert was a fabulous apple crisp but I was so busy enjoying it that I forgot to take a picture!
And then we got right down to the business of playing Mah Jongg! I started out with a very lucky win on this Winds hand – I think I have mentioned before that I really like playing this hand.
Another hand I have really been loving is this FF 222 444 666 888 closed hand. I wavered back and forth between this hand and the first hand on the 2468 section but decided to try for the closed hand – and glad that I did! Take a look at those spectacular Flowers – this set is really beautiful and is a treasured possession of S2’s.
X came up with a beautiful winning hand with this 2244 444666 8888 win:
Here’s a consecutive numbers hand – 55 66 777 888 9999 – that ended up as a win thanks to 4 Jokers! BTW, this Bone and Bamboo set probably dates back to the 1920s – take a look at those amazing Jokers carved by the very talented Dee Gallo, making this set NMJL compliant.
Here’s a glimpse of some more of the amazing Flowers from this set in this consecutive numbers hand, FFFF 1111 2222 DD:
As always, a wonderful day with the OMs…now we just need to get J back in town and we will be complete!
