Anyone for Tether Tennis? A spot of shuttlecock, perhaps?
While at Rod's parent's place a time capsule style top cupboard was opened and past treasures were revealed. Among them was a 'Tether Tennis' set. The Shuttlecock was missing but the pole and ball on a string was there, and one bat.
In this cupboard was also stored a computer that Rod MADE. Apparently, in the early 80's home computers were made out of old TV sets, some paddle pop sticks and a dash of Clag. An older brother helped finance the project where the deal was for Rod to repay the loan by making his brother's bed every day for 12 months. I believe it lasted 6. But, not a bad effort.
There was much reminiscing.
I was just loving the pictures on the 'Tether Tennis' box. Circa 1976, perhaps?
What's with little mate at the front? Not having as much fun as the young lady playing the part of 'the picture of health and youth' at the back. How much was that boy paid to wear that t-shirt? And who is his hair stylist? These questions and many more....
Hammered into the backyard, the 'Tether Tennis' provided HOURS of entertainment. Simply hours.
