The Sounds of Summer

I had forgotten about the silly noises tennis players make.

I've just popped BBC1 on ready for the news and there they are even sillier than before.

Re: The Sounds of Summer

The only time I went to watch the tennis was my last. Went for the old strawberries and cream, then out came my own sound..."How much?, at least Dick Turpin had the courtesy to wear a mask". Dunno why I was refused to be served, must have been something I said.

A float tip is pleasing in its appearance and even more pleasing in its disappearance.

Re: The Sounds of Summer

It's amusing that the sound of an English summer is a French sport. In Northern Ireland, it's road racing. Or flute bands.

Round here at the moment it's the smell of summer. Barbecues and muck-spreading.

As for the sound. Strimmers, and usually from 8am onwards. Knuppel

@bjallenby -  Great video Thumbs Up, the bikes are going that fast by the time the camera guy pans round the bikes are nearly out of sight. Funny

Hmmm - the sound of summer round these parts is the rattle of the rain being blasted against the conservatory by the gales. 😢

Sounds of summer - lawnmowers running up and down lawns.
