Blog fromt he dogs Maxine LesterOUT!

smudgeiconARGHHH! What are you – you made me jump!

tedicon

You just walked straight into the wickets

smudgeicon

The what? That appears to be a twig balanced on one of Maxine’s shoes.

tedicon

I’m practising my cricket

smudgeicon

Why and how?

tediconWell, I watched England win the Cricket World Cup on Sunday, and now it’s my dream to be part of the winning team next time.

smudgeicon

So… how have you been practising by yourself? You’ve not got opposable thumbs for a start!

tediconWell, I’ve kind of been throwing the ball with my mouth, and then running after it.

smudgeicon

And if it hits the twig off the sho- I mean, the bales off of the wicket?

tedicon

Well then I’m out.

smudgeicon

Annnnd…..

tedicon

I just sit here, I’m out, DUH!

smudgeicon

That sounds like a solid plan, bud.

tediconDo you want to join in?

smudgeiconNope, I’m more of a tennis gal myself.

tediconAh yes, I hear the Djokovic/ Federer final was a real nail biter! And I had a tear in my eye when Halep beat Williams.

smudgeicon

Awww Ted! Because you were emotional at her winning?

tediconNo. Because I forgot myself, chased a tennis ball and ran head first into the telly.

smudgeicon

OH TED.

tedicon

I told you cricket’s more my game, now if you could just set up the wickets again please.

smudgeiconWhy don’t you go and practice your batting and fielding?

tediconI will when you get down on the courts.

smudgeicon

I’ve already got a mean back-paw, I see myself in more of a coaching role. A Judy Murray as opposed to an Andy or a Jamie.

tedicon

I don’t know who those people are. Anyway, where ARE the best places to practice cricket and tennis round here?

smudgeicon

Well, we’ve got Huntingdon Tennis Club (https://clubspark.lta.org.uk/HuntingdonTennisClub) whose courts and membership are open to everyone, and we’ve also got St. Ives & Warboys cricket club. (http://stivesandwarboyscc.clubbuzz.co.uk/about) who are all about creating an inclusive cricket community.

 

 

 

 

This week Ted & Smudge are over the moon with all of the fabulous sporting excitement, but they cannot seem to agree on which sport was best.  Nothing new there, a 15 minute row and they are back snoozing in their beds!  So if you’d like to speak to one of the Maxine Lester team, it’ll just have to be one of the HUMANS on 01480 494 939.
