“You got something to say?”

Being a cyclist is all about defensive riding. You're on the road with all sorts of large, hard vehicles while equipped with only a helmet for protection. Any physical encounter with one of those vehicles is a no-win situation so it's all about being alert and expecting the people driving said vehicles to do something […]

Schooled by Wolf and Kitty

Tee times were tight today with the courses closing at noon because of the holiday party for all the Club employees. My friend and I ended up getting paired with a husband and wife couple. When I signed in, the desk told me we were paired with Wolf and Kitty. I made Kitty's acquaintance on […]

Return This Golf Ball

All golfers lose some golf balls. Bad golfers lose more golf balls. New golfers lose even more golf balls. Bad, new golfers lose the most golf balls. About a month ago I noticed I was running low on golf balls – AGAIN. What to do? I had seen a couple of ads for used balls […]

Pooh Sticks

It's been a wonderful holiday week in NY. Up until today it's been perfect weather. The funny thing is, even though today is overcast and damp, it's 15-degrees warmer here than back in North Carolina. I think the world is upside down. Of course, the best part of the trip is seeing the grandkids. The only […]

“But your kids are gonna love it.”

Although I'm not a big TV fan, back when my kids were younger I often watched some shows with them. There were some favorites – Little House on the Prairie, Dukes of Hazard, and Family Ties were among them, for very different reasons. Little House was good, wholesome, family values, Dukes had Daisy and Family […]

Sixty-five and Counting

It's good to have goals. Of course when you accomplish them, you then have to set new ones. Today was a day for attaining one of my fitness goals, the one about doing a set of push-ups equal to my age. When I got down this morning to do my push-ups for the day, there […]

Rules Enforcement Committee

I'm not sure exactly how I ended up here, but as many of you know, I live in what is basically a retirement community. http://www.stjamesplantation.com/ There are no age restrictions like some places have, so there are a few families with kids and the school buses roll in and out every day.  I've heard many names […]
