    Hmm, is it a 'thing' for croquet?
  4. ah.....
    yes it is
  5. I thought 'ouch', but I don't know why. Then I also thought 'the middle stump is missing', but I know Greg is from Florida and has maybe never seen a set of stumps. I'm an expat 'bok and still enjoy watching an ODI or 20/20 game whenever I get the chance, which is not very often.

    Good one Greg.

  6. weirdly....
    this picture was taken less than 1.5 miles from my house
    i had NO idea that the Belleview Biltmore Hotel had a croquet court (as i think it is called)

    Wooh! I guess everyone has to be good at something!

    I've never actually played the game, maybe I should sometime. Thanks for the puzzle Greg.
  9. Coming late to the dance, but Greg, any fool knows Cricket has 3 stumps and bails that rest on top!
    (expat from England/India)

    Nice teaser Greg!
  10. ah....
    little tiny ponies.....
    now THAT would peg the CUTE METER... wouldn't it? :biggrin:
  11. you are welcome...
    maybe i'll go out there and play soon

    if i remember correctly... i think my parents gave me a set 30 years ago and i used to play in our back yard....
    a couple of times
    who knows... i'm too old to remember, for sure :redface::rolleyes::smile:
  12. i appreciate that
