Winter Golf

We went out for a drive today around Smithville Lake.  While there we thought "How about a round of golf?".  Our first stop was the driving range.  Uh, oh, it's closed.  We scratched our heads wondering why they would close the driving range on such a beautiful day, and then we found the reason.

The ball retriever cart was stuck in the snow!  Oh well, we'll just have to start our round without any practice.  Off to the tees!

Decisions, decisions.  Outlaw or Posse.  Which one shall we play?  I wonder which is less crowded?

The Outlaw looks promising.  We see some footsteps heading to the tee, but no one is in sight.  They're probably a few holes ahead of us.

After running out of balls on the first hole, we decided to call it a day.  While leaving the park, we saw the restroom, which for obvious reasons is closed in the winter.  Why did they shovel a path to the door?

One Year Ago

Tuesday a year ago, I was bowling with our team in Senior league.  It was taco Tuesday so I had a few tacos before bowling.  I was thinking the tacos didn't agree with me because after each frame, my chest was burning.  During the third game I started to fear it wasn't the tacos.  I wasn't smart enough to head to the hospital and shortly after midnight, I had my heart attack.  It is hard to believe it's been a whole year already.

Today was league day, and again, taco Tuesday.  I couldn't bring myself to eat tacos so I had lunch at home.  I felt strange and a little scared at the bowling alley, but after throwing a few lanes with no 'heartburn', I started to relax.  Now I am looking forward to 2010 being a great year!

I took the plunge.  I'm going to see if I can do a 365 project this year.  I did day one, so I'm well on my way!  I have a link to the project on the right side of this page.  Tomorrow we'll know if I can actually do it two days in a row!
