On the evening of April 25, 90 year old Leona Brenner, resident of the Coronach Health Centre, was thrilled to get a perfect hand in cribbage. While playing crib with her daughter, Pat Harkness, Brenner couldn’t believe that she drew the perfect hand, of three fives and a jack.
The deal was sealed when a five was cut from the deck.
Brenner said that she couldn’t hide her excitement. “Pat said, you have a good hand don’t you!” Brenner recalled with a giggle.
Brenner said this was her first perfect hand and that she has been waiting for it for all of her life.
