Little more about me

Ok, this blog post is to tell you a little bit more about myself.

You already know I am an awesome golfer.....ok not awesome, but I don't get run off the course by angry golfers behind me.

I work in Human Resources as a senior information technologist. I do like my job but the the downside of that title is that everyone runs to me when they can't get their computer to do what they want it to. I am no computer guru. However, I have found that if you dig in, 9 out of 10 times, you can figure it out. The 10th time, you may need to get a new computer!

I have a teenage son. He is the light of my life and the source of my ever more present gray hairs, and he hasn't started driving yet! It's coming soon so I am relishing this time with him.

These are my dogs, Roscoe on the left and Sammy on the right. I firmly believe that you should not spoil a dog.....ok while I may believe it, I don't practice it!! These guys are spoiled rotten!!

Hi everyone,

Happy Saturday! I don't know about the rest of you but I am happy for such a nice Saturday off from work! Normally today I would be going golfing with my son, but we have  a birthday party to attend instead.

I never could understand golf, why people would spend hours playing. I used to tease my husband about how he would spend hours hitting a ball and then go chase it only to do it all over again.

Then I played it......

And I got hooked!!

The first time I went golfing, it was me and my son and he wanted to go. All we had was a bag of clubs. We had no tees - didn't realize we needed them - and one or two golf balls. We went to a par 3 course that was not busy - thank goodness, we would have been run off the course!

I think I wore flip flops.

Clearly we had no idea what we were doing or getting into.

We had to scour the tee's for broken tees to use! And found a ton of golf balls!

Afterwards, I went straight to the store and bought a cheap bag of clubs to get me started and haven't stopped golfing since.

By the way I have improved and even have my own pair of golf shoes!!
