What a result!

Oh boy, the team did well tonight, beating the opposition 11 – 3, our best result of the season so far.
My partner and I won our games 3 – nil, and I chalked the men’s 1001 down, which was one of the fastest games I’ve known. The lads hit some good scores, and the other side did too,  but what made it so quick was the fact that I can add up and by the time they retrieved their darts from the board, I was confirming their score and taking it off! Initially they were surprised, but after a few throws, they just got on with the game.
I can’t get on with an electronic scoreboard though, and much prefer the old chalk.

Apparently the team we played in the ladies league who were such sticklers for timing and had offended the landlady of the pub they were playing for, have two teams in the summer league and currently hold the bottom two positions (apparently they will be playing for another establishment in the winter). Still, it’s early days.

It was fun tonight, and my neighbour’s husband collected us, so Hubby could have an early night and rest up.
We passed ‘the gates ‘ and they do look good!

Time for bed now. Hopefully will catch up with everything tomorrow (er, later today)
‘Night all.

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.

    Congratulations!:D Sounds like a lovely evening. 🙂

    • Even if it hadn’t been such a good result, it was still a good night. Hubby was glad to have the chance of an early night though as I didn’t get in until 11.30.

    Well-hurled!
    I prefer having a bow to go with my arrows, but one can’t really do that in a pub or hall.

    • Could be an interesting exercise! I always fancied archery, but had problems with my hands.

        One needs a lot of space, too. My father introduced me to it in a small suburban property, but there was the problem of making holes in a neighbour’s corrugated iron roof due to a bit of a miscalculation …

      • Ah. Hubby put a dartboard up in our hall and my first three darts were two misses of the board and a hole in the wall. The lampshade has a couple of new holes too.
