I Went Golfing Today
I'm not a sports fan and don't golf very often, but today I went golfing with a guy visiting from Ontario, Canada. This guy is down visiting some snowbirds that attend our church during the winter months...they're wonderful people from Ontario as well. It's been a year since I've picked up my clubs to anything other than move from one house to the next, so for the first four holes I'm all over the place. To add to the hilarity of the situation, the starter at the golf course has paired us with a retired couple that live on the course that can actually golf...and well! My Canadian friend is a fair golfer, he's funny...every time he went to the tee he would lay his club down to get the right angle and then hit the ball. Me, I have absolutely no direction, it doesn't matter how I grip my club, bend my knees or point and angle my feet, I always hit to the right. When it was all said and done, I only lost one golf ball, lower my score 4-6 points from the first nine on the back nine, and was still saved at the end of the day! My wife doesn't help me with these things, I'm pretty much retired from golf, but Julie likes to tell people that I love to golf and that I would love to go golfing with them, their family or friends who will be coming from a visit from wherever...she's such a great help! I got some sun which is nice, except that I have these lines on the sides of my face where the ear pieces for my glasses were...but it's a beautiful day in the Sunshine State and I blessed by the adventure with my new northern friend...guess if we ever go to his house I'll have to learn how to curl or play hockey!
