Independence Day....

Hi all.  Hope everyone enjoyed their 4th of July.
Here at "the Dog" we celebrated with our Annual Firecracker Open.
18 teams competed in this long standing tournament.  It's one of my favorite.
Though my partner Jon and I just couldn't get things rolling.
We started out birding the first hole, but after that the putts just wouldn't drop.  UGG!  So as you can see by the pictures posted, we didn't place.  Oh well, we'll get em next year!!
Once the round was over, we tallied the scores, awarded prizes then settled in and relived
each missed putt.  Always the same old thing "we should have been 2 more under! that
hole number (fill in the blank) should have dropped".  Yadda Yadda.
All in all a good day. The weather cooperated, the beer was cold, I made cookies,
Sloppy Joes and Meatloaf sliders.  No one went away hungry or thirsty.
Success once again.
Big thanks to all who participated.

Another Big thanks to Jeff and crew.
They really do have the course in excellent shape as usual.
But the lack of rain has left Jeff non-plus.
He's had to pick and choose when and what he can water.   This has been a huge challenge.
Hang in their my friend. If anyone can get it done, You can!
Oh the golf course dilemma.....  "Please no rain so we can have play, Oh please rain so we can keep the grass alive".  How about only raining at night? Is that too much to ask? Yikes!
What's a girl to do?
Same thing I've been doing for 18 plus years.... roll with it.

So that's all I've got for now.
Hope you can get out and enjoy your course.
We look forward to seeing you.
