Canasta Sharks Betty and Jane from the Scott - Freitag Tradition
While Great Grandma Betty Scott Blackwell was in town, my spirit sister Jane Scott Newell, invited me over to share in the Freitag-Scott family ritual of canasta. The teams of Betty and Bryon Aldrich, Jane and this author, played to within 5 points of each other with three hand of many naturals and runs of 3 threes. So here are Betty and Jane, after the event with their hands on the cards! A fun time over lamb shank stew, made from scratch by this author, fresh green beans from Byron, and cheese from Cotswold to Welsh Cheddar and a Belgian Kriek Frambois Brew. Ask Jane about the flailing elbows in her large kitchen and the gravity around the balanced martini! Leb wohl und prosper!
