Ist match of the Summer

We now have seven men and 6 women in the Summer team, so we won’t all play in the doubles or gallon. It wasn’t the most organised of evenings, but we held our other pub team to a 7 all draw.
Sadly I lost my doubles game, though did get the winning double in one leg.
Hubby and I have been playing at home and I’ve changed my game a little, trying to concentrate more on the top of the board the way I used to when I played in the ’80s.
Still no scores over 100 to get on the back of the sheet, but I didn’t do too badly with a few in the 70s and 80s and a couple in the 90s, my best being 97.
The ladies lost in the 701 gallon too, so it was all up to the guys for their 1001 down.
I was chalking, and it was one of the fastest games I’ve known. There were a lot of high scores, but our lads played really well and were 200 ahead at one stage.

We’re away next week, but it’s still local so I won’t have to drive.
Meanwhile, I’ll keep pounding away at those 20s.

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.

    A draw is, after all, the next best thing to a win. Now, if you can just get your bow adjusted slightly . . .
