I couldn't ask for a better start to a holiday weekend than this. Well I could, but I won't! We did have a little frost this morning, but it only lasted about 30 minutes. I never know about 3 day weekends. It seems like one day is totally crazy and the other two are just so so. But this morning was a nice steady pace. (The day's not over Deb!) I even got out this morning with the 5-5-5. Shannon said she would be fine on her own, so I took it and ran!! I think she just wanted to get rid of me! That's OK! I totally understand. The course is in beautiful shape!! The greens are fast and true, fairways are plush and green, and it looks like Uncle Sam and Betsy Ross had a little party out there. Old glory is flying all over the place. You rock Jeff!!!! I've said it before, holiday weekends for us are about hopefully filling the course with lots of happy golfers, and having a few cocktails at the 19th hole. But for me it's also about remembering all of our men and women, past and current, who serve in our armed forces. Given the hard times we are all going through right now, I think this is more true than ever. I hope you all have a great holiday weekend with your family and friends. Eat, Drink and be merry. (have one for me!) And don't forget to take a moment and reflect on what makes this country still the best!!! Love you all! Go team USA!!
