Stuff of Life

Pickle whaaat? . . .

[aka] a ball game popular among RVers

I’m thinking about another lifetime ago, when I would happily walk 30 blocks to South Street Seaport (NYC minus several decades) for the best giant dill-pickle-out-of-a-barrel . . . munching gleefully while fending off seagulls amidst the serenade of lapping water, flapping sails and randomly clanging bells . . .

but no . . . I digress . . . what I’m actually talking about is . . . wait for it . . .

” PICKLEBALL . . . !!! . . .

You heard me  . . . I kid you not . . .  turns out . . .

this . . . is . . . big . . .

really . . .

How could I not know about this?

It has it’s own Association with leagues – lots and lots of leagues . . . and a self proclaimed  “Official hub” . . . and a 50 year following beloved and nurtured by the RV community . . .

and now there are Pickleball courts in every state and it is enjoyed by young and old alike . . .

How often does that happen . . . a game for one and all . . . HOORAY!

Who knows, I just may have to harness the old competitive spirit and try it ‘cos of the name alone . . . just saying . . .

Ps: there’s several stories as to the origin of the name, but apparently there was a dog named pickles . . .  love it . . .
