It is Daughter L’s Senior Skip Day :)

I was worried Daughter L was oversleeping today but it turns out it is senior skip day at her school :). I remember my senior skip day, 31 years ago (:() — I played golf.  THat was just a few weeks after Jack Nicklaus had surprised the golf world by winning the Masters in his 40s.  That was the year I loved golf so much I golfed 3 times a week (walked on as a single on Friday, Saturday and Sunday) and I was starting to play well enough that the golf coach asked if I’d consider playing golf, not realizing I was a senior.  Funny how much I loved it then – I don’t feel that way at all now.  I don’t know how you can have soo much passion for something then none at all.

Golf is as exciting to watch as a free throw shooting contest

By our house is a golf course, and I often watch the golfers while eating lunch. Watching the golfers approach in their cart, grab a club then take an average of 17 seconds to go through their pre-shot routine, it dawns on me that watching a golfer is like watching an NBA free-throw.
