a Snap a Set and a Song - Tennis

my Snap

This week the kids found the cricket bat and wanted a hit in the back courtyard.
We couldn't find the cricket ball.
We couldn't even find any tennis balls...perfect for backyard cricket, right?
So my husband walked down to the main street to buy a cheap can of tennis balls.
Boy, did peeling the lid open take me back.
I played in a tennis team every weekend when I was a kid.
There's nothing like the smell of new tennis balls!

my Set

The Australian Open is on right now.
It's one of my favourite TV viewing events.
I'd love to see it live one day!
I couldn't do a tennis set without adding a tennis bracelet now could I?
