Darts Practice

I swear I am getting worse rather than better at getting my finishing double.
The day before yesterday, after ten minutes, neither of us had got a double to start, so we gave up.
Hubby hammered me four games to one yesterday, and two games to one on our first session today. We don’t have a set time to play, so we had another session later and I beat him three nil, including a whitewash as he could not get started.

We had a bit of a shifty round though which may have been a contributory factor.
One of Hubby’s darts kept going sideways, and on closer inspection, we discovered that a stem was bent. The day before, I’d noticed one of mine was actually broken which accounted for the spin sometimes, but I wasn’t comfortable with the replacements I put in, though the flights were OK.
I changed them again today and Hubby had the ones I had been using.

Getting his old stems out was a doddle, but getting the flights out was another matter, it was almost as if they were welded in!
Would you believe he had to get the pliers to them, and in doing so, cut the sharp corners off so couldn’t put them in the new stems. Luckily, I had plenty of spares, so we could resume our games.
The new stems I have are really nice so next week I shall get some more. The final doubles might still be a while in coming but my grouping is getting better!

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! In November 2020, we lost our beloved 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. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. 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.
