A Knight’s Tale (91: Tennis)

Here is a set of pictures of a tennis match between the game Arnoux, the husband of Marie-Helene, and my son Michael in 1983. I don’t remember the outcome, although I believe they were evenly matched.

but, in putting him under pressure, his French opponent demonstrated a certain skill.

Sam, looking hopeful here, probably got a game in as well.

I am an octogenarian enjoying rambling physically and photographing what I see, and rambling in my head as memories are triggered. I also ramble through a lifetime's photographs. In these later years much rambling is done in a car.

  1. Oh, I love Sam’s wellies. Why is it they never want to take them off. I have removed shiny new wellies only after they’d fallen asleep!

  2. That last picture is such a sweet pay-off. I have been meaning to back up my photos – seeing these precious family photos means I must resolve to do it this weekend.
