Mallet: Daily Post Prompt

Today’s prompt word is Mallet

and I’m thinking flamingos.
Yep, Alice Through the Looking Glass, and playing croquet with flamingos.

There is an Alice in Wonderland theme park in Dorset where all the staff dress up in character, a white rabbit is charging around the grounds saying ‘I’m late!’ and they also have a story telling corner.
Hubby and I paid a visit one day as we’d never been, and technically it was ‘local’ to us being about 15 miles away.
We got lost in the maze, listened to part of the story time, and then played croquet on the lawn with a pair of mallets that had flamingo heads. I lost.
It was an interesting afternoon.
Mainly because it was chucking it down with rain, but then we never usually let the weather put us off.

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
