Sherwood Forest Ladies Golf League results. The game on July 3 was a best-ball Ribbon Cutting game, and we had a great turnout. Twenty-five women showed up to play the team game on the back nine. The winning team was Kathy Harris, Peggy Baldwin, and Mel Kasab. It was a fun game and a fun morning of golf. After golf, a number of golfers crossed the street to the Cedar Mountain Outpost for lunch. If you haven't played with our league on Mondays or have only been out a few times, come on out! We have a lot of newcomers in the league. Registration is at 8:30 a.m. Play starts at 9 a.m. We'll play the front nine on July 10.

I (Christine) spent most of last week in the hospital, as a patient! Back home now I’m doing very well. A small bag with an extra cell phone charger & plug and other essentials was packed and taken along to the hospital as my best friend Candy drove me there. It’s sad when they know who you are upon entering the front desk! Admitted I was, though, so was glad to have brought my charger and reading glasses. By day 2, when I felt up to checking & sending emails & texts I turned on my phone only to be asked to punch in my pass code, as this device “doesn’t recognize me” by facial recognition. Really, have I changed that much? Let the fun begin.

Transylvania Hospital has always treated me well, and after 3 full days & nights, I was released to my home. I’m glad to report they do have sugar-free options now. Still, you have to look out for yourself, as my first tray had sugar in everything except for the broth. They got it right after that.

Upon returning home the greeting I got from my 3 pups was amazing! Daughter Carri had been tending to them, but they still prefer their “leader”. It was great! Now as the 4th of July fast approaches (I’m writing this on Monday, July 3rd) some neighbors up the road began testing out their fireworks last night. That means my oldest pup Jack was on my lap until close to midnight when the fireworks stopped. If it goes the same as last year it will be a full 5-6 days before said neighbors run out of ammunition so that me and my pups can again relax in our own home. And there’s the key: staying indoors. Unfortunately, many pets left outdoors will run for their lives when the fireworks are active, often becoming lost. Please keep pets indoors this week. And neighbors please diminish the length of “time” you fire off these noisemakers, both in the number of days and lateness of the night. I’m sure many will thank you for your kind consideration.

AROUND THE HOUSE by Linda Packer Young

As of this writing our fishing trip is a washout. The lake is not accessible except by a long walk, or golf carts which were all rented out. It’s a long walk and we weren’t up to carting fishing tackle so far from our campsite and then carting fish back if we caught any. We found another access to the lake outside the campground and hope to try fishing there on Wed. This campground has a beautiful pool and playground for kids. There was great entertainment on both Saturday and Sunday. Saturday’s music was for individuals of less “seniority” than we were but was fun. Sunday night they geared the music more toward us old-timers. We enjoyed watching some great dancing from “yesteryear” and singing along to tunes we knew the words to. Ha.
