Kevin and I went golfing today. I need practice!!! I’ve never been a very good player, but I used to get out several times a year and would do OK. The last time I played with any regularity was in 2007. In 2008 I think I went 2 or 3 times, and I didn’t go at all in 2009. Boy, did it show :)
There is a very nice course near us. They have a Monday special of 9 holes with a cart for $10 a person. Kevin asked me to play with him on Mondays. I said I would give it a try. On the first hole, I hit a poor shot off the tee and then proceeded to miss the ball my next 2 attempts in the fairway. I must admit I shed a few tears and was ready to sell the clubs. I get really nervous when there are people behind us.
We let the group behind us play through and they were almost as bad as I was. I felt better and kept trying. I actually hit some decent shots. I had good luck with Kevin’s oversized driver. I have a hybrid 5 wood, and I hit that club well in the fairway. We didn’t keep score, but I know I got better as we went along. I’ll try again next week :)
We had a nice weekend. Some of our friends came and camped for the weekend. The weather Saturday was great until late afternoon. Then, the torrential rains started, and it rained a good part of the night. We were busy all day Saturday with canoe and kayak rentals.
Yesterday I drove into town to see my mother and pick up our mail from our son’s house. It’s an hour drive each way, but I listen to audio books. Books make the drive so much more enjoyable.
I saw this family of geese on the river yesterday. Aren’t they cute!
