Nothing unusual in that. In fact it's usually Wednesday once week. I've sort have got used to that even though they come much faster than they used to.
I was expecting to be playing in a tournament today. In fact I will not be playing until Friday. I have, however, spent the last two days and a couple of hours first thing this morning setting out lawns. I will be doing the same tomorrow morning at crack of dawn. Assuming, that is, that of the dawn actually does crack. After five days of fabulous weather at the tournament last week in Dannevirke yesterday evening the heavens opened and they have been open ever since. I am really surprised that our lawns are playable. However I am at The Cottage up in the hills and the lawns are down near the sea where it's often drier even though it's not far away as the metaphorical crow flies. After the warmest November on record so far in New Zealand the temperature has now dropped here at The Cottage to 15°C. The end of the nice weather was celebrated by a very spectacular thunder and lightning storm last evening.
I was out of Blogland for most of the time during the last week so I thought today I would catch up while I have the opportunity. I have done very little reading and might not get much opportunity because I have a visitor staying for the week playing in the tournament from today until Sunday evening.
We had five glorious days in Dannevirke. The Rangatira Croquet Club is a very hospitable place with 6 good lawns. I managed a third in the Golf Croquet Level Singles.
One of the members has a Triumph 2500 TC vintage 1973. It's still used as an everyday car and that day was being roped in to pull the trailer of grass cuttings.
On Saturday evening we ate at the RSA and Citizens Club (RSA = Returned Services Association = UK equivalent of the British Legion) and a few of us played snooker. Judy and I played and one of us won on a black ball game. It says something (though I'm not sure what) that I can't actually recall which of us it was! It was a high scoring game though.
