Lots of stuff...

Once again... golf course knitting. Another successful Anne E. Barnes golf tournament to benefit the Multiple Sclerosis Society. And once again, no one at my hole got a hole in one. One of these days it's going to happen. However, this year, I did get a bit of surprise while sitting in my usual spot. I had a visitor. A four foot long black slithering visitor. Yep. Mr. Black Snake. I have to say I've always enjoyed my day on the golf course. Unfortunately, not so much anymore. I'm already dreading next year. And it's a shame. Now I'll just be terrified that it will happen again.

And, yes, I know they are harmless. But truly, it might as well have been a King Cobra.

Steeler season is upon us. Steeler mania has begun in the family. I'm the odd man out this time of year. It's not that I don't like it, I just can't get into it. I've tried. I'd like nothing more than to be as excited over it as the rest of my family. Including the pint sized members.

I've tried to force myself into jumping on board the big Steeler band wagon. But, honestly, I just don't really feel it. :-( But I do want them to win as long as I don't have to watch!
So plans for Kiawah have been decided. Four weeks from now. Which means I have four weeks to lose 20 lbs. Ugh.

EEEEP! I would not have been able to stay at the golf course if I had had the same visitor! You're right ... it might as well have been a King Cobra! Or an Anaconda! [shudder]

I have a lifetime pass from watching Steeler games, I'm bad luck! Everytime I watch a game, they lose. So I let the guys watch while I go upstairs with a couple of dvds. You could cultivate something of the same ;).
