Golfing in the fog isn’t for the lighthearted, but it’s fun. Actually, for some of us, it’s really no different from golfing on a bright sunny day. For those lucky folks it’s still a matter of hitting the ball, then finding it so they can hit it again, as many times as necessary. For normal golfers, those who can actually golf, simply go to their ball because they know where it landed and don’t need to look for it. I suspect those folks do as well in the fog as they do on any other day. I bet they aren’t as excited about finding their balls as much as those who have to find theirs.
Finding our cart was easy, as was finding the first tee box. It’s out behind the mushroom looking tree a little ways.
Here’s what it looks like from the #1 tee. Plenty of visibility to see which direction the ball heads once it’s hit.
By the time we got to #8 the air was clearing up.
This is JP warming up for a tremendous drive down #8. I believe he parred this one.
Tuesday was a good day.
Friday we went to the St. Helens High School foot ball game, a new tradition we began a couple of weeks ago. We’ll no doubt keep it up because Lydia’s boyfriend, Mason, #9 below on the near right of the photo, is also a Junior and will play again next year. Also, since the current place kicker seems to have a bit of trouble, Lydia is seriously thinking about trying out for the team as the kicker next season. As a soccer goalie she’s learned how to kick quite well. Should be an interesting year. We hope she is successful in this endeavor. Me especially because I can’t wait to get a photo of her and Mason together in their varsity football uniforms. That would be pretty awesome.
Just a selfie of some folks sitting in my vicinity in the bleachers. Actually, that’s Noydena in the back, and her mother, Sandy, below her. In case you haven’t figured out by the stuffed Lion, The St. Helens team is, well, the Lions. Go figure.
At church on Sunday Diane discovered that she almost dressed exactly like Randy. That’s Diane on the right.
Today JP came by the house and asked if I had a vice.
Not having one, I said "no."
He said, "well, I guess we'll have to go to Doug's, then."
"Why", I asked.
"To replace the grips on your golf clubs", he said.
"I don't have any new grips", I replied.
"Yes you do."
"Where might they be?"
"In my car."
That ultimately resulted in the following scene where Doug and JP went to work ripping the old grips off, dousing everything in sight with BBQ lighter fluid, applying special tape, applying more lighter fluid, then slipping the new grip into place.
I’m truly blessed to have friends like these two guys.
For an ending I have to share with you Panzee and her new best friend, Cloud, a small rabbit living next door.
Panzee will spend hours just sitting there watching the bunny and the bunny will come to the fence for a nuzzle once in a while. Very touching. Actually, I think Panzee just wonders what it is and what it might taste like.
