It is surprising that in my 33-year golfing career,
Lady Luck has smiled on my limited golfing skills these six times. Six holes-in-one is likely to be my
life's record as the drives are getting shorter and the holes seem to get further away from the tees. My aging body is
starting to protest almost every excursion on the golf course. My handicap is going out of sight. Guess I will
play the putt and giggle courses if I can find any in Lynchburg VA.
I am not putting and giggling anymore. No more golf as my physical condition continues to deteriorate. One must be
an athlete to play good golf.
I have been extremely fortunate in my journey through life--all 90 years
of it. I had a rewarding career in education, I have a delightful family,
fine friends, and a great retirement with plenty of internet
time and memories of my golfing days.
I have reached the top of the mountain and the view is terrific--always
keep your sights set on the top. Keep your powder dry and your hat on
straight as you travel life's pathway.
