Sometimes you just need to vent. 
 

My wife is headed to the hospital this afternoon for a fairly routine but life-altering surgery. 
 

She’s been living with excruciating pain for approximately the last two years post-delivery of our daughter. 
 

We don’t have a crystal ball but it’s likely that any traditional means of having more kids is a door that will soon close. Not fun news to hear and not something your wife wants to realize. 
 

So for the next several hours it’ll be a cafeteria, waiting room and probably a deep dive into the depths of some TXG videos as a healthy distraction while she undergoes her procedure. 
 

Not here to solicit prayers or good thoughts. Just a note to say, give your spouse a hug and a kiss and tell them you love them  

 

Hope all goes well and that those give hours don't feel like 5 years maybe just 5 months. I know when my wife is even a little late I worry so I can't imagine.

Update on Grant (my son) at Nike Golf Camp:  first day he won a lanyard for winning a closest-to-the-hole chipping contest, but yesterday was the real win...he raced out to my truck when I got home to tell me he got his first birdie!  My wife picked him up so I don't know the yardage, but the coaches told her it was a par 4, he hit a solid drive, put his second on the green, and drained it!

These camps aren't cheap but so far I'd have to say it's worth it...he's definitely coming home energized to play more golf.  

Nice! The camps are great, all about the instructors, they make it for the kiddos

I helped out at a Golf Camp for Kids at the Public Course I played at B4 moving here.  It was a blast, Kids were great and guys/girls golfers were VERY patient.

if I stayed there I would have done it every summer.

I stumbled across this and realized I have not paid a great deal of attention to golf terminology. 

Specifically, do you say you are "going to play golf" or do you say you are "going golfing" when you talk about doing what we love most?

This started with a comment made about the word "golfing" on a position statement instead of "golf" which prompted me to research, entered search word "golfing" to see what was 'out there' and the first thing I found was this source and as it is a school site (and having spent most of my adult life as an educator) I found it to carried some weight, perhaps good to provoke a conversation.

I just had a thought… how many golf swings has the announcers on the PGA tour ruined?

“Here we have So and So and he is holding the lag through the shot…”   

Am tries that and shankerooski off into the junk… 

Subliminal messages to keep PGA Instructors in business…. (I’m kidding here of course).
