Tuesday Photo Challenge – Round

Frank’s theme this week is ROUND.

I’m thinking of round tuits, but this picture isn’t mine, so I’ll come up with something else.

There are loads of round objects in everyday life, saucepans, baking tins, plates, cups, saucers, and we often talk of a round of golf or a round of drinks don’t we. I don’t indulge in either as I don’t see the point of hitting a ball and then looking for it all day, and as I’m tee-total, even though I play darts for a pub, I don’t buy drinks for anyone apart from my team colleague who kindly gives me a lift to away matches, so I buy hers.

Dartboards are round of course, and I often wonder as I am trying valiantly for that blasted double 1 if I would have the same trouble should it be in any other position on the board.

Apparently a man called Brian Gamlin designed the numbering system on a dartboard. You can read about that here rather than me repeat myself as I’ve used this info twice now in other posts.
My accuracy (doubles excluded, sigh) is improving though, and on five occasions now I have done a Robin Hood, three at home and two in matches.

The barrels and stems of my darts are round, the tips are rounded and my current flights are tulip shaped.
The smallest double on the board is the bullseye. And that’s round too!

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination 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! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.

  1. I was hoping to post for the last couple of days but I don’t seem to have the time to get a round tuit. I wonder where you can buy one, a friend of mine had one years ago, very amusing.

    Throughly enjoyed learning about Tuit. I’ve never heard of the saying, but now I need one. 🙂
