Demolition Derby

I am thinking of changing the name of our darts team next year to Demolition Derbys.
I have some new signings (one of which didn’t turn up again nor let me know this time), and roped my neighbour in to play as well as you know.
Tonight we put two new holes in the chalkboard, almost speared the bubblegum machine so they moved it, put three holes in the floor and almost as many in whoever was chalking at the time. It wasn’t just my girls either as they had some novice ladies on the home team too.

I can honestly say I have not laughed so much for a long time. We got totally hammered, losing 11 points to 1, so are bottom of the league with only 3 points after 2 matches with a Bye next week.
But you know, it doesn’t matter. The girls had fun tonight, on both sides. The atmosphere was relaxed, friendly and chatty, my only criticism was the music was too loud, but that was a minor technicality.
The result didn’t actually reflect the standard of play, the opposition just got their doubles and we didn’t.
It was a good night and I’m proud of our team, especially our Woman of the Match (point).

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.

    You’re right, winning is not the aim, having fun is. πŸ‘

    Some good advice: try aiming at the board in the middle if there are three, or the clearer one if two!

  3. I like the name of the dart team, but I really love that photo of the dart in the lamp. LOL! πŸ˜‚ 🀣
    It’s funny too… I use to go to the gun range with my father when younger, and again with my husband. I had awesome aim with shooting, but for me to play darts? Whole different story.
    If I shot darts now, that lamp would not exist anymore. LOL! 😜 😝

    The dart in the lampshade got me laughing…

    • The poor thing quivered every time I took aim and ended up with 6 holes in it, two of which were not mine I might add! We’ve since changed the light fitting and retired the nervous shade to the roof.
