coming soon to a snookers field near you
Snookers keeps me humble
Sally actually belongs to a more elite club than the 1 point club - she earned zero points when I set her up just a little crooked and a tunnel was half a field away from her. I released her from a beautiful start line stay and watched her rocket into the tunnel. I don't even think I called her. Just watched in shock and awe.
Snookers keeps my brain working
with Brody I make a plan - stick to it and see how far we get before we run out of time.. the thinking is all ahead of time
with Sally I make a plan - then start running it - if I am thinking on my feet I figure out what to do when she doesn't do the up contact on a teeter, or knocks a bar or otherwise changes my plan. so far I'm not very good at that ...but wow am I learning... We do have 30 snookers qs under our collective belt .. and still ...
Life long learning is SO much fun!
Now I wouldn't mind at all if Sally and I got another Starters Snookers Q and moved on up the ladder ... but if we sit in Starters Snookers for years I'm ok with that too. I've decided I'm entering every Snookers class I can FEO or running and eventually I'll figure out how to help Sally tick around Snookers like Brody does ... she's faster, more accurate in many ways and has real distance skills - this should be a fun mission for us both.
