For 9 days, I was missing in action in Toronto. My bridge was not going well. I had to change rooms two times (no Internet service, no hot water - then a deluge of water through the ceiling!) Prices were ridiculously high due to the weak dollar. I was about ready to chalk up this tournament as one of my more pathetic, and then.... Thursday and Friday happened.
The good news about 11PM last night is that, thanks to wonderful teammates and the kind errors of some opponents, I chalked up another national title. There must be something to not practicing; both partners of mine were new to me!
Monday I leave for Omaha and will do battle against Bill Gates and Warren Buffett. Then - home a week later to crash!
