dievca’s Dad and Mom grew up poor, so when Dad started to make a bit of money he wanted to try all kinds of activities that he associated with people who had a bit more money – tennis, bridge, etc. Both of dievca’s parents ended up playing tennis for a long time, but only dievca’s Mom got into Bridge.
she was a demon at it
Bridge players play weekly or more. Depending on how many tables are going – each participant will host a Bridge Party monthly or bi-monthly. These hostings would include food or a meal. And in dievca’s Mom’s case – lunch could be a Waldorf Salad or Phyllo dough individual Chicken Pot Pies.
Coffee service was involved.
dievca’s Mom used a percolator and she always said the coffee was considered excellent. So, dievca was looking for the percolator when she closed up her Mom’s house and never found it. she thinks it might have been a General Electric version.
Does anyone have any experience with an electric percolator – vintage GE in particular?

Hmmm, dievca doesn’t own a car…
Would she or wouldn’t she invest in an auto expresso maker if she did?
Does anyone have one?
It’s around $250.
I guess it depends if you need to save time in the morning,
or need an afternoon “pick-me-up”.
