Being counted as young again
mini me + poo
I have recently started a bowls* course. There are at least three clubs within walking distance and it's been on the 'to-do' list for about three years.

More along the French line, then? I was quite tickled to learn of the existence of a Boules league in Bath. ^_^ Sadly, I'd moved out of the area by then, although I suspect this whole "Sunday morning" thing probably wouldn't've jibed with me anyway. =:)
