Sporty attempts

Once in a blue moon I go sporty (Mommy Moments theme this week). But I am as clumsy as I can be. Heck I was just showing support to that college boyfriend when I yawned my no-idea state on that court. I buy a tennis racket because I fancy owning one not because I like playing. On my first attempt to play, I hit the ball so hard it flew extremely high and landed with an alarming thud atop a BMW on a nearby parking lot. It scared me off tennis forever.

Before getting married to Cj's dad, I thought 'hmmn.. I dated a tennis player, I would marry someone who plays golf.' Silly and of course nothing has changed. Going to country clubs and driving ranges all over Bangkok didn't make me any sporty at all. Ah well, at least the cuisine is very enjoyable.

I don't want Cj to follow in my unsporty footsteps. He shows interest in basketball and baseball so I suppose it's a good sign. Recently his Dad bought him a toy golf set because he fussed about the real clubs I had recently. Ex-hub and I have managed to remain friendly with each other when it comes to golf and movies. He lent me his clubs and since Cj saw them standing idle in my apartment for almost a year, he thought they were mine. When they were returned, he cried and tried to get them back, "that's Mommy's golfffff!"

Poor kid. He'll just have to be contented with this ball in the meantime.

Can't say I would blame you for not trying tennis again. hehe.

Cj is so precious. I'm sure he will find his sport and be wonderful at it!

Wow.. golf? Its only expensive here in the Philippines, unlike other countries. I am no longer sporty when I started working so I tend to point to the dad as an example. (Using the excuse that they're males). Be patient, eventually, CJ will want to play on his own.

Happy Mm!

Jewel, right you are! There's a huge gap between a stray tennis ball and a BMW

judys424, even if it was cheap I'm still useless at it. Maybe I should try knitting. I would love the tea :-)

Remember that 1995 Sense and Sensibility scene in which dashing Mr. Willoughby recklessly drives a phaeton around town with Marianne Dashwood? The novel was published in 1811.  Fast drag your imagination to 2011 and the two lovers are today's rich hunk and a happy-go-lucky, attractive chick speeding on say, a Lamborghini Reventon. In Pride and Prejudice, obsequious Mr Collin declares, "she (Lady Catherine de Bough) is perfectly amiable, and often condescends to drive by my humble abode in her little phaeton and ponies." pha·e·ton   (f -tn) n. 1. A light, four-wheeled open carriage, usually drawn by a pair of horses.    2. A touring car. ( The Free Dictionary) Jane Austen in Vermont Two ladies in a high perch phaeton. The owners of these sporty, open-air and lightning fast carriages actually drove the vehicle, as there was no place for a coachman. Phaeton seats were built high off the ground, the sides of the vehicle were open to the elements (a top cou


The Rumford is a much more efficient way to heat a room than earlier fireplaces.... ( Wikipedia on Benjamin Thompson, Count Rumford, designer of tall, shallow fireplaces which are now known as the Rumford, was an Anglo-American physicist known for his investigations of heat) Living in the tropics, I have been in close proximity with only three fireplaces in my life. There was an unused one in the home of my college professor in the Philippines. The other one from which I could feel the heat and see the fire dancing was in a hotel lobby in the Yorkshire Moors. Picture taking was quick. Two old ladies were having tea by it, but that was my first ever real fireplace experience, and I loved it. The latest I have touched is the one in Jane Austen's imaginary Northanger Abbey. The fireplace, where she had expected the ample width and ponderous carvings of former times, was contracted to a Rumford , with slabs of plain though handsome marbles, and ornament over it of the prettiest Eng
