Ace in the Hole
A set of four demitasse cups and luncheon plates were a gift to my mother-in-law, Ruth, from her brother Paul for her birthday, I believe sometime in the late 70's. They are Staffordshire bone china from England and have their rightful place in my china cabinet. Mother was an avid bridge player and belonged to a local bridge club. They met monthly at members homes to have an afternoon of card playing. Coffee, tea and a special little dessert or salad was always served by the hostess, so, this little set was put to good use. After moving to the Eastern Star Masonic home in Boone, she found other gals there to have a game with most every day. She always thought I would enjoy the game and should learn to play, but, to this day it is still on the "to do" list.
