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!



I have two best friends in this world – one lives in California – Alison – and one lives in Florida – Patty – and they are the dearest people in the world to me. Alison’s daughter, Logan Levant, just wrote a fabulous book – The Kitchen Decoded – and if you are looking for a wedding shower gift (or just a wonderful kitchen/recipe book), this is it. Logan was in town this weekend doing a cooking demonstration and book signing at the Broadway Panhandler. In between prepping all the food, she had a chance to sit down and read a certain book that is near and dear to my heart…


By the way, her friend Jason is reading the other book that I wrote this year, Advice for the Lawlorn, a career advice book…and it is not just for lawyers…it is currently available only on the ABA website but coming to Amazon (#1 New Release in Legal Education Profession) and Barnes & Noble and other bookstores in the new year.

And speaking of books, Just a reminder…if you like our book, Mah Jongg The Art of the Game, then please write a review on Amazon!

Lastly, I am hoping for a very happy, healthy, and delicious Thanksgiving for all of you!!
