#1 here. For so many years, Thursday was Tommy's day on the blog. Since his departure, we have mostly followed the Thankful Thursday theme, but there is always that pull back to Tommy. So, please humour me this week with a Throw-Back Thursday featuring Tommy.
Tommy's great passion in life was his ball(s). He had many of them and loved every single one passionately. In early years, we used tennis balls which he would shredded in a matter of hours or days, depending on the quality. And then I discovered the more durable rubber balls and we were set!
Sometime, he would carry a little extra baggage with his ball!
They came in different sizes and colours:
Most of the time, it was Tommy who would choose which ball he would take out that day. Very occasionally, he would lose one, and even more occasionally, we would find it again months later!
Little Ollie has started his ball appreciation education, but it will be a while yet until he truly gets the value of a good ball!
