I wonder why... by sdutoit

I wonder why...

This was the last birthday present I gave my son on 13 4 2008 before he passed away in June 2008.
Never in use but I kept it.
When looking at it I just wondered why...
1 There is two glasses with the number 6 on it (Second number 6 glass extra did not fit in the tray)
2 There is number 1-3, 6-8 and 11-12,and 14-15. Why was the other numbers left out?
That is very curious indeed! There are normally15 balls in a standard billiards set and numbers 9-15 are the stripes. I guess they had to leave a few out as this rack has room only for 10? Strange about the duplicate. A lovely gift, and a nice image. I'm so sorry about your son.

Makes me sad to think that some friend of mine, anybody in fact, losing a son or a daughter. But life has to go on. I am sure these glasses have tender memories for you. May he rest in peace. The way you arranged the glasses reminds me of snooker balls before the game starts.

So many reasons to wonder why? Life often throws us a curved ball as depicted on these glasses.

@sangwann The tray in which the glasses are is in a tri-angular shape. A bit dark to see the tray.

Strange but it’s the precious last gift...it wouldn’t matter if it was half missing or broken it was his. A feel for you Sylvia, we can non of us know what it’s like unless you have been in the same shoes. Sending love. X
