Hello and welcome back to the wonderful world of the Dogpound. Our company had its bi-annual golf event which meant I played golf all of two times this year…including this time. I am not a big golf fan, but I enjoy getting out with the guys to chase a few golf balls and lose a few more. We play a scramble format since we have the whole mix of a few that play every chance they get to a few that show up… to just show up; for example, a couple of guys showed up with beer in hand. I mean it is 7:30 a.m. in the morning! One of them was dressed head to toe in hunter camouflage clothing, complete with work boots; maybe he thought he might see a deer on the back nine. The only problem with playing in the early morning is that the grass is very wet from the dew, and half-way through the 18 holes my feet were getting pretty wet. I noticed something hanging on the bottom of my shoe and upon closer observation I saw it was a piece of leather; the leather on my right shoe was peeling off, and my left shoe was cracked as well. No wonder my feet were getting soaking wet! Then on the last few holes the sole on my left shoe came loose as well; I told everyone that when I play golf, I really play golf. The shoes are probably 10 years old and I never took care of them, so it is no surprise they gave out just in time to end the season.
THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK
“Use your gifts faithfully, and they shall be enlarged; practice what you know, and you shall attain to higher knowledge.” Matthew Arnold
SECRET TO A LONG AND HAPPY MARRIAGE
An old woman was sipping a glass of wine while sitting on the patio with her husband, and she says, “I love you so much, I don’t know how I could ever live without you.” Her husband asks, “Is that you or the wine talking?” She replies, “It’s me talking to the wine.”
That is all for now. As always be good, play safe, and remember use to the fullest your God-given talents.
