Today’s the day. I’ve been waiting a whole week. So excited.

Roaming around the charity shop, looking for Christmas presents... (well you never know)... I’d seen her. She looked so impressive in the corner with her all-in-one woolly hat and sock. I sidled up, all casual like, then lifted her up and quickly whipped off her clothing. She shone back at me and then I knew I had to possess her.

The two pounds she cost was an absolute bargain. I was delighted.

But the call just came. Muddy conditions... today’s golf is off!

Our date must wait.

    Thanks LesleyAnne. I'm going back later today to see what other golf stuff they might have!

    Nice one, Neville. I don't play golf much but I am a collector of vinyl records and you can come across some great finds in charity shops and flea markets, as we call them here (although I have no idea why).

    Haha you golfers are a strange breed! (So says I, who loves old editions of books and vinyl... )

    Yeah, I go for the books in those places too. I like finding weird old things to read and listen to. I've bought old self-help albums from the 50's and an old double-LP called "The Power Of Inspired Salesmanship" and I'm not even a salesman!

    ...but we’re all salespeople, Christopher, from the moment we wake up. I think I even try to flog people things in my dreams...
