When Ken and I got to the courts this morning we were horribly surprised to see that they were soaking wet. No dry spots at all. It had only sprinkled some up where we live so we did not expect this. Well we started working on them and Bob T. joined us shortly after we started. Ralph, John & Mike helped out too when they got there. The courts were so wet that we really couldn't get them dry but I think they were better and a little less slippery. Lynn and Linda, our visitors that winter in Arizona, arrived shortly after 9:00 when most of our other players were arriving. No one seemed to be put off by the wetness of the courts and came ready to play. We got the games going and had some good competition. There were 13 hearty pickleball players today......Bob T., Ralph, Mike, John, Lynn L., Linda L., Ron, Sharon, Johnny, Jan, Lynne S., Ken and Lynn(me).
Bob T. brought homemade oatmeal raisin cookies that just hit the spot this morning. Bob made them himself last night. Thanks Bob!!! We sure did enjoy them!!
Lynne S. surprised us this morning. We thought she was out of town till the 15th but she came. Lynne did not plan to play because of her knees and had planned to just come and visit.....but she just couldn't stand it and had to play!!
We really enjoyed having Lynn L. & Linda L. visiting and playing pickleball with us today. I hope they will put us on their route again. They are really good players and we all really enjoyed having them join us this morning. And I'm so glad that the weather behaved and let us play.
Tuesday is looking good right now so we're looking forward to more fun and pickleball games then....... Lynn
