Ok.  I just looked at the calendar and realized that summer passed me by.  What? Here’s my excuse for not keeping up with the golf course shenanigans.    Then, I’ll get on with the show.  First up, at the end of April, my dear, sweet, grandma passed away.  She was 99 years old and lived […]

I don’t know about you, but my favorite part of playing golf is the people who make up my foursome.  I have been playing golf on Thursdays with my mom, sister, and aunt Nancy for about 20 years.  In fact, about fifteen years ago, I played golf (best round of my life), then proceeded to […]
