...more than 9 months actually...since I've swung my hickories on the links.
All things considered, knocking some of the rust off went pretty well...
Played with the same gutta percha for the entire round, kept it in the fairways, no mulligans, and managed 4 bogeys...
...though if I had any talent, the last one on 9 could have been a birdie and definitely should have been a par.
The rest of the holes...well, as I heard one fellow duffer remark, if triple bogeys were fabric, I would have been draped head to toe in the stuff today.
Even so it was an enjoyable round...a little solitude, a little exercise, and a pleasant stroll through the countryside.
And the gas heater that was supposed to be hooked up this week has been pushed back to next weekend.
On the plus side, the electricians did show up to finish the wiring / outlets for the pool light, pump, gas heater and timer...a week later than they said they would, but hey...at least they did it.
Bottom line, the basic rule of life still applies:
Everything takes longer...
...and costs more than you think it will.
We soldier on.
It's tough when one of your children dies, even when you know they're better off in heaven than they ever could have been here on planet earth.
There's really nothing to do but put one foot in front of the other and keep moving.
I've spent a lot of time in God's Word and tried to keep busy with the usual routines, but that loss is always right there in the background, looming over you.
It's nice when the sunlight...
