And you still love her?

Two tennis posts in an as many weeks from someone who professes not to have any interest in tennis? I know, I know. I’m sorry.

I just came across this picture and had to share it – and what better day for it?

I felt it best to be frank.

“My dear Ambrose, I am sorry to give you pain, but Miss Tewkesbury is a tennis player. I have seen her with my own eyes leaping about the court shouting ‘Forty love,’ ‘Thirty all’ and similar obscenities.”

He astounded me by receiving my words with a careless nod.

“Yes, she told me she played tennis.”

“And you still love her?”
