Ben Kramer Memorial..

Sorry once again about the hiatus.  Life has kept me jumping and hasn't left me much time for this blog.   I'll try to get back on track.   Anyway,  we hosted our Annual Ben Kramer Memorial this past weekend and the weather couldn't  have been more perfect. The odds of getting two perfect days back to back for this event are usually slim to none.  But Mother nature came through for us this year. This is one of my favorite events of the year.  Mostly because it's two days, and everyone always seems to be in a great mood.  I don't know if its the adrenalin flowing awaiting to play your best round ever or the thought of beating that team that knocked you out last year!!  Yikes.  Plenty of wagering along with the usual banter keeps everyone upbeat.  After grinding out 36 holes in search of birdies and eagles, we counted scores, figured out skins and pari-mutual wagers, then settle in to relive each missed putt, arrant shot over a few libations.
So is this how I spend my weekends....Not a bad life I must say.

But life throws you a curve ball now and again and you need to deal with it.
For those of you who don't know...
Last year we had to place my mother in a facility to battle one of the many unexplainable diseases that many suffer from.  In our case...its Dementia.  I'm not sure what God's plan is,  but I'm trying to figure it out.  As of today we have brought in those angels from hospice to help make her last days more comfortable.  For this I will be truly grateful......

Thanks to all for your thoughts and prayers.
Wishing you and your families health and happiness.
I look forward to seeing you soon.
