The weather here for weeks has been so wonderful clear bright sunny warm days and the evenings very pleasant.
This morning I was invited to join a women's group of tennis players one of the group could not play and they wanted me to play...this Pearson boy is not going to turn down the chance to play with three ladies and especially when it is not at my usual venue but at the posh Malequin Golf and Tennis club!!!!
Enjoy the photos!!!
Came home got changed and walked to poker.....now this was a special afternoon as I won the most I have ever won 450 pesos!!!!
Back home made a nice salad and off to my English class......you all know by now I so love this part of my life and tonight the lesson plan was again thrown out of the window as we just sat around in a circle and talked about everything..so rewarding to see them think and then express their views in English.
I told them what happened to me yesterday...I was in La Commer , the big grocery store, with my cart and my lips have been quite dry and my chap stick was at home and I needed a new one so i went into the pharmacy section and picked out one it was strawberry flavor.....as my lips were really dry I opened the package and was careful to put the empty wrapper in my cart, I opened it up and the stick was actually red...I coated my lips with a good dose and continued my shopping...I said hello to a couple of people I know and walked around for about 10 minutes getting my stuff....then to the check out girl who smiled at me as she rang my items through...gave a good smile and a thank you to the old lady packing my groceries along with a nice tip...on the way out said thank you to the security gurad and he just stared at me......loaded my car got in and put the car in reverse and happened to look in the rear view mirror and ..yes you have guessed it my lips were the brightest red possible!!!!!
My students loved this story!!!
A lot of you know about my friend Stella we have been friends almost 18 years and her Grand daughter Ashley is the tennis star.....I met Ash for the first time 5 years ago when she was 12 years of age and I actually hit some tennis balls with her..I was doing pretty well getting them back and giving as good as I got....well when we met at the net picking balls up I told her it must be an advantage playing left handed....she smiled at me the way only a 12 year old blonde beauty could and demurely said I am not left handed!!!!
I told her you are playing leftie and she again said but I am not left handed..it clicked what she was doing and I told her to go back on the court and play right handed.....I do not think I saw a ball after that!!!
Anyway I have followed her career all this time and have been lucky to attend a number of her tournaments...and last year she was offered a full scholarship at Pepperdine University and she is doing so well..
Enjoy this article!!
