Tennis (More)

Continuing with our little unplanned series re tennis in my work. This is from Mrs. Plansky’s Revenge, coming July 25 but pre-orders welcome now:

Mrs. Plansky walked quickly, partly on account of the cold, but also because speed seemed to be making her new hip feel better, perhaps warming up all that titanium. How lucky she was! She knew other tennis players, men and women, who had replaced hips, knees, shoulders, even an ankle or two in the hope of getting back on the court. But often it didn’t work out that way and yet there she was, playing the way she’d played ten or fifteen years ago! Naturally she’d need to check video to confirm that judgment, video that luckily did not exist. Mrs. Plansky was occupying herself along those lines when she got the feeling that maybe she should have reached the square by now. She checked her surroundings and recognized nothing.

    Good day everyone!
    It’s always so good to hear from a new person. Welcome.
    Isn’t it interesting trying to spread conversation between four times zones?

    Good morning all.
    We got another 6 inches of snow last night. We already had over 2 feet in our garden so now it is over the large tomato cages that are hanging around out back there.
    Yesterday one of the weather guys was talking about our snow pack and said that he wouldn’t be surprised if we still had snow, in sheltered areas, in June. I hope that is true because if we have a fast melt there will be overland flooding in all the flat areas. (which is most of North Dakota). The last great Grand Forks flood and fire was 26 years ago.

    Staff, I find it hard to believe that you are chillier than Alaska, but there
    has been so much news about winds out of the north.
    Hang on until Spring really gets around to arriving in your neck of the woods.
