A great day for golf!

Not a cloud in the sky. Wind variable from zero to maybe 10 mph. Temps ranging from the lower 70s to maybe 80 at the highest. Very low humidity.


No, I DON’T want to talk about score, thank you! It’s not the score that counts as much as the experience. Unless you’re playing for money, which I never do.

Why not? Well, because I don’t have a lot of extra money that I care to lose, and if I DID play for money I wouldn’t have ANY.

Carol, however, is a different story. She could play for money quite successfully, most days. Today she had three — count ‘em; THREE! — birdies. Plus she had a number of pars. I think her final score was 82, if you must know. She beat me by exactly 12, but who’s counting?

We played with Ruth and Donnie today. Donnie had a bad day (for him) but still beat my score. Ruth was closer to Carol with an 87.

There! Are you satisfied now? I SAID I didn’t want to talk about scores, but you forced it out of me. If you’re a good golfer, you play for score. If you’re an average (or worse) golfer, you play for the occasional good shot and the exercise. Guess what I play for! (Mostly, for the exercise.)

Okay. That said, I’m changing subjects on you. Halloween is upon us, and I’ve JUST learned that one of my daughters is going to a costume party. She and her husband are dressing as super heroes.

Which ones? Well, since a picture is worth 1000 words, here’s the whole story in a flash:

Meet Wonder Woman and Aqua Man!

(Yes, my daughter MADE the costumes. She gets all of her talent from her mother.)

Now that is what I call a pair of good looking super heros.

Pee Wee golf is the closest I've gotten to the game.

Of course that would be the other daughter - I couldn't make a Wonder Woman costume to save my life!

Awesome costumes! Homemade is always the best. You can afford higher quality materials that way, and they fit better.hvzqcu

Awesome costumes...and isn't it great you can share in those special moments with your kids so quickly via the Internet--and then broadcast it to your ENTIRE blogworld.
