Yesterday was my turn to host the OMs but I I decided to expand out the group for this luncheon as I was celebrating – I received my first royalty check from the American Bar Association for the other book that I wrote last year:

Advice for the Lawlorn  


So, in addition to four of the six OMs (K is still on her cruise in the Mediterranean and X was busy), I invited D, G, and G2. We had a great day…

Everyone received a little favor – these fabulous mugs – and when they removed their napkins they saw the saying inside the mug that certainly rang true with us all…

And then we broke up into two tables and started our day of Mah Jongg…I am not going to show all of the hands we played but here are some of the highlights. G2 was the big winner for a total of four Mah Jongg’s but I was happy with my three wins. The good news is that everyone won at least one game today.

After a few hours of game play I brought out dessert: Frozen Berries with Hot White Chocolate Sauce (sorry – I forgot to take photos). And, of course, there was licorice and – much to my delight – I found Bridge Mix at a store and, of course, had to buy it for today!


Even Lizzie had a great time today – look at that smile on her face!

      Hi Martha – I am so happy that you enjoying this blog! OM stands for Original Mahjettes – I don’t know how we happened to coin this name but it did stick so we continue to use it. Welcome to the world of Mah Jongg!!!

      Lizzie had a very good day yesterday although she didn’t win any Mah Jongg games. However, she loves company and was given many treats during the afternoon! It was a definite winning day for her.
