Veering towards golf

Up here, our summers are shorter than my 'Willie' in an ice-cold shower.

So when the railway builders found a natural hot spring in the mountains - and they were kinda grimy from building train tracks across the prairies - well they decided right then and there to build a world-class hotel/lodge.

After that, some of the bosses, decided to build a golf course right behind the hotel. Jolene and I go out there once and a while. One time, we packed a lunch and ate it along the fairways, watching the elk graze, keeping an eye out for bears and enjoyed the pre-season high-noon fresh spring air.

Well today - some of the world's greatest and most famous golfers finished off a skins game, hosted by our internet / phone provider, right up here in our own back yard.

Guess what? Golfing's 'bad-boy' John Daly (I honestly do like his attitude) walked away with the most skins and money. He played against Stephen Ames, Jack Nicklaus, Sergio Garcia and a very healthy looking Greg Norman.

I guess I'm damn proud of these guys stopping by for a worthwhile cause (Children's Charity) and to enjoy a windy day up behind one of those places where we've smooched and snacked, lol.

Just wanted to share one of those moments that make us happy to live up here - in the great white north. Come to think of it - it's a half-assed miracle that it wasn't snowing today.

I sure hope Jolene's feeling frisky tonight.

Our leaves are turning colour - so it won't be long
before it's time to put the hoses away and get the
snow shovels out.

When it comes to patriotic pride - there are things
that we're proud of but there are things that piss us
off too.

I guess what we're the most proud of - is the idea that
people from all over the globe - have a chance, right here,
to throw in ideas about living, loving and liking what
each other say, when they've got the time to do it.

John Daly owns the golf course in Dardanelle Arkansas, Cool huh.

If Jolene gets to frisky tonight give me a call, I'm on vacation ya know

Lately I have only been in here long enough to post a blog, I'm kind of lazy and a little busy with the drag cars

Always great when you get a minute to drop by, oldude.

Hey, I took some time off this summer - just to see what it
feels like. I liked it a lot but my ass will be back in gear
and that means more of something else and a little less of this.

If I had all the tits n tires to handle that you do - I think
I'd be too busy myself - to post - so no worries, lol.

I've got a binder. In it, I've got a list of golf courses that
I've played or want to play. I've just added Dardanelle to the
list cause I like doing business with people I admire.

As for Jolene, oldude - either you or me or us will have to
figure a way to get her on web-cam. She's really shy about
it right now - but let's keep trying, okay?
