We woke to a very cold rainy morning in the uk, showered and a cup of tea tilly-miss seemed full of the joys as she knew we were heading out.We made our way to a local venue upon our arrival we were greeted by a gang of workers chopping down trees that had become risk issues.
In to the walkway of this vast woodlands we were greeted by puddles of mud and water which was very deep in parts, the rain cascading through the leaves and branches dripping on tilly-miss and myself, we continued to enjoy the still silence that surrounded both of us making our way deeper in the woodlands, it was not long before tilly bolted a few yards in front standing still her ears pricked up and a little restless, that is when you know something is there, and before my very eyes a family of 6 deer ran at a pace along the side fencing, what a beautiful sight to see, all 6 of them big to small were soaked to the skin and headed out of sight from us, that is the beauty of the woodlands, you never know what will join you, but as always tilly-miss knew something was lurking.
The golf course was deserted, the sand bunkers and the greens were like an open swimming pool, leaves had swept across the course making a real mess of the beautiful landscape that had in previous months looked so pretty and was packed with so many playing, we today walked away with our lowest ever amount of golf balls, making me wonder is the end in sight for this year.
Tilly-miss will continue our walks no matter what, we will visit some other courses and get a feel to the outskirts for next year, making ourself comfortable for visits, knowing which place to enter, and picking out the likely places around the course that will bring just rewards.
We will have lots of things to keep us busy, our huge stock of golf balls have to be sorted, checked for damage, washed in our own formula for the best results, then placed in brand names and bagged, the balls for the vending project will be placed in a container, each container will hold a picture of tilly-miss in various poses, each machine will have 9 rows of various brand names of golf ball, so hopefully anyone who buys from the machine will be able to take home a different picture of tilly-miss and pass them on to children or grandchildren as a little collection, just a little idea that might capture the childs imagination.
Machines will arrive early next week, that is done and dusted and looking forward to it all happening, logos and art work in place and agreed,really look forward to adding new pictures when the artwork has been applied, hopefully you will like the new look of what we have developed for the future of buying a golf ball.
So that is it for today, weather is going to change yet again, we now have snow forecast,so keep warm and stay calm, if things do get to bad make sure you have enough food and plenty of soup on standby, switch on the heating and turn up the telly, your in the safest place.
Take care and we will be back with some more happy times to keep you amused…….Tilly x
