    I thank you for your comments and for allowing tilly advertising,it has been very hard convincing pubs that a majority of there regulars and passing through trade are actually golfers ! it seems the pictures on a can are stirring interest, i sold 100 golf balls to a client in Brighton because his children had seen the pictures and they are now selling them through there school....he wouldnt buy them unless i could guarantee the pictures on a can....the mind boggles...where this will lead.

    Hi Tilly!

    Just thought.. have you installed your golf machines in pubs near major golf course i.e Belfry, Sandwich, St Andrews etc etc and this will generates loads of money. I live around 5 miles from Belfry Golf, there are two pubs close-by.. Dog and Doublet, Bodymoor (also Aston Villa players eat and drinks there) and Green Man, Middleton. I am sure Golfers drink and eat in these pubs.

    Hi Tilly,

    I think you will find this interesting...

    I was watching vet programme called Bondi Vet and there was dog called Billy (Jack Russell) He will only play with.... Golf Ball! Unfortunately he swallowed entire gold ball and was rushed to vet for emergency operation to remove it.

    Happily, he survived and well. This brings me thought of your dog! Hopefully your dog will not do the same as Billy..

    Anyway hope you have a great week!

    Hoppy

    I had a working terrier once, her epitaph would have to be 'Here lies Fitch. Golf Ball Crazy, Golf Ball Mad'. She was a sound little working dog, fox, rat, rabbit, then she discovered golf balls. After that they were all she was interested in, but she were a cracker.
    If I've got this right, here she is...

    Yeah, on the common ground near Ferndown. The pic's one of a little project of mine , putting all those I've got of me dogs into an accurate timeline. What with a convulated life like mine and a memory that makes a colander look solid, it ain't easy.
    Glad you liked her...

    I got Yorkie called Toby who is 18 years 4 months and still eager as ever. He has been with me almost half of my life. He had operation recently for tumor removal and he is very well now
