Everyone Knows...


...the Zombie Apocalypse is the world's biggest fear, and for good reason.

But right on its heels in the Time To Panic department...

...is the gut wrenching realization we're already half way through Summer!



Obvious implication?

Old Man Winter is lurking right around the corner, just waiting to pounce on us!

So forget about remaining calm...

...it's time to go a little crazy enjoying the 2nd half of the glorious summer weather.



A recent back breaking project involved leveling Patio Mountain...
hastily constructed by #4 son during our patio excavation process...
...so Karen could create Patio Gardens in its place...
lovingly crafted by the Mistress of the Gardens...

...a beautiful transformation indeed.

Nice to see a plan come together.



A good course of action for this week's foray into the black arts of hickory golf might be to simply bow our heads for a moment of silence...

...but digging deep in search of a the bright side, I did actually enjoy my stroll through the beautiful countryside.

I could trot out some tired excuses, and perhaps stretching it a bit, one or two actual reasons for this disaster (see the previous section on leveling Patio Mountain)...

...but if you're anything like Karen, you've already skipped this part and are on to whatever's next...

...so I shan't bore you with the details.

All I'll say is after using gutta percha golf balls for the past year, hitting ouimets with my hickories felt like golfing with miniature shot puts.

Next week it's back to my beloved gutta perchas and my mid-iron.
even Sir Kitschalot could have golfed better than I did this week

We'll tee it up again and hope for better.



In the once around the horn department...
