Up Chukker

Yesterday I spent a rah-thur pleasant afternoon at the Austin Polo club. There were several of my friends there. We had a wide variety of beer, snacks, real food, and mimosas. We lounged under a small tent, ate, drank and were quite merry.
Between matches we went out onto the pitch and stomped divots. It was all quite civilized.

After it was over a couple of us stayed late, drinking champagne and discussing polo, among other things, with the lovely woman who arranged the whole thing.

*A chukker is a period of polo play lasting 7.5 minutes.
