About a week ago, I did a little garage sifting to find my mom’s old Schwinn bike so I could take the bike ride I’d been longing for. You know how garages are…you clean them and they just get stuffed full of stuff again. Well, as the story goes…this led to some unleashing of little hidden treasures. One of these treasures was my Grandpa’s very vintage Croquet set.
I have a few memories of him teaching all of us grand-daughters how to play Croquet…so the hubby (making a cameo appearance in this post) and I thought we’d give it another try.
Croquet is a lost sport I think, at least in the U.S. It should be brought back! Croquet was a popular game back in the late 19th, early 20th century…and a fashionable one at that.

I don’t think either of us will become pro Croquet-ers any time soon… but it’s a fun game for the nostalgia of it, if anything. Like Bocce ball, croquet would also be a great idea for entertaining guests!
