a DARK &
STORMY nite !!
GREAT Golf Ball Attack
of 1996 !!
A Tale of Pain and Fortune !!
|ENTER the Perpertrator !!|
as I prepared for bed !!
As I jumped under my quilt I immediately realized that
something was QUITE amiss !!
I found myself with an amazing collection of bits of BROKEN
glass stuck squarely in my fanny !! OUCH !!
|As I was able to shed light on the situation !!|
Off to the RIGHT, we
see a closer
view of the tracks left in the carpet !!
Directly above, a view JUST below
the Perpetrator's 'entrance' with
bits of glass EVERY WHERE !!
And, finally, to our right, we begin to
visualize the damage to my innocent,
comfortable, sleeping Futon !!
|The Perpetrator Comes into View !!|
On our left, we've
Perpetrator completely across my
KING size Futon !!
our right, we discouver the
Perpetrator 'gazing' back innocently !!
it's like MidNite Past by now,
I have assembled various sources of illumination
to achieve the proper perspective
of the total extent of the attack !!
|FINALLY, the Damage is Discouvered !!|
| On our
right, can be seen
some of the Perpetrator's
massive damage to the
Globe's Chimney !!
Below, can be viewed additional
close-ups of the Perpetrator's work !!
an upward glance
shows a first glance of the
Perpetrator's destruction !!
On our right, can be seen
the final close-ups of the
Globe Amphora's, now
destroyed, Chimney !!
VERY little good can arise from any situation of this
extreme nature with few exceptions !!
As I maintain COMPLETE 'Scheduled' Insurance
Coverage of my ENTIRE Belleek Museum,
I begin work with my Insurance Company
IMMEDIATELY to rectify this tragic loss !!
They had NO 'Qualms' with the COMPLETE
replacement of ALL my bedding and linens !!
Their ONLY question, NOT surprisingly, was
regarding the evaluation of the 'lost' Globe's Chimney !!
Unfortunately, this was not ONLY the original chimney,
but was also 'five' facetted, exhibiting beautiful and
graceful bird fowl on each of it's exquisitely etched,
frosted and polished quintiles !!
Fortunately, the Insurance Company and myself were
capable of arriving at an amicable and equitable
settlement for each of the parties involved !!
In my grief, I have JUST NOT been able to part
with this element of my Belleek Collecting Past !!
Therefore, I have preserved the chimneys beauty
in sterile wrapping, in a shoe box, at rest
peacefully for all time !!
The rest is Belleek Collecting History !!
