July 4th was indeed special this year as some bridge friends gathered at Loretta Rivers' to celebrate our wonderful freedom in this country. The food was tops with Kerstin Pohlman's salmon on toast points and Loretta's fare of fresh cucumbers sliced in sour cream, fresh tomatoes, potato salad, great beans and barbecued ribs and chicken. Loretta also served homemade fresh peach ice cream that was "to die for!" Barbara Norris brought champagne to end the evening. We are truly a blessed bridge bunch ... in the winter of our lives and still having fun!
