A shuddering light

The new dartboard is up, together with a new backboard. All we need now is to get a chalkboard for the bottom and we’re away.

However:

The lampshade has begged me to stop practicing until the flex is shortened to take it out of harm’s way.
It has two new holes in it as I aimed for double one, continually and pathetically missing.

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.

    Why not get an inexpensive ceiling mount spot light (to replace the existing light), and point it at the board? Not only will it be too high for even a novice to hit, but will illuminate the board such that focusing on that centre circle is a bit easier. 🙂

    • That’s what I suggested to Hubby a little while ago, but he thinks shortening the flex should be sufficient. I’m going to work on him though as I think a spotlight would be better and more ‘driectional’.

        It would be far superior for lighting the dartboard, and the residual light will still illuminate the area in general. Work on him. It’s a “no-brainer” surely! 🙂

  2. Haha… so remember when my son practised in his bedroom.. He hung the dart board on the inside of airing cupboard door in his room.. Its still peppered with holes that go around in a circle.. I used to love playing darts with my brother when we were young.. We had an outhouse to use.. The bricks often got chipped.. 🙂 Happy Aiming.. 🙂
