Tools of the trade

Every profession has its tools.

The funniest part is when the teachers of my kids ask:
"What does your dad do for a living?"
"Il joue aux boules!"

That's how come every spring I lend several of these boules bags to the elementary school of our village. So they can train for the annual competition in June: elementary school vs the retirement home.
A wonderful concept the principal came up with, and I'll post a photo report when it happens.

Which reminds me that I'll need to replenish my club's supply of boules. As we spot new prospective enthusiasts, and seeds for new clubs - we "lend" out our boules. Then when a tournament approaches, I remember - "I need to stock up!"

So, just when I'm ready to purchase another competition set, I think "hmmm I could instead buy 8 sets of leisure boules for the club...

Vital to a new club is the main preparation: "Have plenty of boules on hand for people to use."
