We all had fun, even if some of us wished we could drop more than one hole! If you haven’t been out with us in a while, join us next Monday, when we will play a team scramble. Less pressure, more fun. Registration at 8:30 a.m. Play starts at 9 a.m. and we will be playing the front nine.

AROUND THE HOUSE by Linda Packer Young

The big news this week is having our lower driveway widened. It was scary narrow for driving a big RV up a hill to its parking spot. My, honey dreaded every trip up and down it. Imagine driving on the edge of a road with no railing and a steep drop-off. He can breathe easier now.
