The Game that Spans Generations

By Herb Behre

I live in Chevy Chase MD, and try to visit my mother, Alice Behre, every two weeks. She is 87 years old and lives in a retirement community in Solomons MD. We play at the Lusby Duplicate Bridge Club on the second and fourth Monday and Tuesday of each month, and recently had a 77.38% game.

Mom is a Silver Life Master and I am a Bronze. I started playing bridge with her when I was 16. She was my teacher, along with my dad (who is deceased). Both of us have other partners who we play with, but she is my favorite by far, and, I hope, I am hers.
