tennis_doubles_by_al_lau

There is a different kind of tennis doubles stance where a player crouches on the middle line of the court, just behind the net, while the server has a plan of attack. It is called the “i” formation. The doubles players have a strategy that will confuse their opponents. The problem is, this positioning is only effective if the first serve goes in.

My drawing shows the player ducking low enough so that she won’t be hit by the server’s tennis ball.

One of my fave tennis tournaments is coming up next week, the Australian Open. But before that, the Hopman Cup is happening in Perth. This is my way of fantasizing warmth during this record-breaking cold we are having in the Northeast.

Stay warm y’all!

red-eared turtle

A Red-Eared Slider climbing out to bask.  It is a chilly winter here, and I long for the warmth of the sun just like this turtle.

It paid to be a fuzzy turtle when it was winter time.  But now, it’s officially spring.
Happy Spring y’all!
