Just in case you were wondering about Pickleball; Pickleball is a paddle sport (similar to a racquet sport) that combines elements of badminton, tennis, and table tennis. Two or four players use solid paddles made of wood or composite materials to hit a perforated polymer ball, similar to a Wiffle Ball, over a net.
According to Barney McCallum, the game was officially named after the Pritchards’ dog Pickles, who would chase the ball and run off with it. According to McCallum, “The Pritchards had a dog named Pickles, and you’re having fun at a party, right? So anyways, what the hell, let’s just call it pickleball.”
Right now I have a desire for a banana split! Banana, One scoop vanilla, One scoop chocolate, One scoop chocolate chip, One topping pineapple, One topping caramel, One topping chocolate, Now the whip cream, Now the nuts sprinkled all over the top, Finally a cherry. WOW!
cars with everything included, top of the line, famous names nobody else can effort,
real estate, have a house everywhere you want to visit, New York, Chicago, Denver, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, England, Paris, Brazil.
Or is worth about love,
doing for others, don’t forget about animals, birds,
offer assistance to someone, that no one else will give them the time of day,
have a conversation with someone no one else will take the time to listen what they have to say.
Listening to others is the hardest thing for people to do. Listening to what others have to say, is important to them, since no one else will take the time.
To me this is where we have lost the art of a craft, product made by hand, that was done for eons and now is lost because no one wants to listen. Yes it takes time, patience, understanding of what they accomplished in their life.
keys – stores now have machines. Sorry I find a store that still makes them by hand,
clothes – where do you go to have your clothes made the way you want,
boats, canoes, – where do you find the hand work and design,
product cuttings – item received not made correctly, hopefully you have a store that can trim it to the correct length or width,
Have you ever been smitten? For one thing I dragged out my paper dictionary The New Merriam-Webster with a copyright of 1989 to see what smitten is all about.
Are pages yellow you ask? Yes they are!
Here’s the meaning of smite – 1989 doesn’t even have smitten – says to strike heavy, to affect as a heavy blow. Yikes! I thought it meant more like the statements below.
Now at Merriam-Webster website it has – deeply affected with or struck by strong feelings of attraction, affection, or infatuation.
Now The Free Dictionary one definition has – to afflict or attack with deadly or disastrous effect: smitten by polio. to affect mentally, morally, or emotionally with a strong and sudden feeling: They were smitten with terror.
Have you been smitten lately?
Have a great day! Hope
