A note from Sharon on Wednesday 28th November 2007

Rhona, my work-mate at Australia Post, bought me this tennis set
I have been after a set for a long time, checking the Ebay auctions and looking in antique stores
While Rhona was in Nowra NSW visiting her Mum, they went shopping
She spotted this, and being aware of my search, she bought it for me
Thank you, Rhona!!
It is one of the prettiest I have seen and I love it!!
