Tomorrow is my first golf tournament of the season - and my favorite. Its the very exclusive Employee Golf Extravaganza! LOL But then again, any day you get paid to golf in the sun is a good day!
Employees and associates get together for a great day of golf, ending with a steak barbeque in the clubhouse. "Associates" includes our lawyers, bankers, auditors, and major suppliers.
I've dug my clubs out from the basement, and naturally I put them away without cleaning them. Oh well. And my golf shoes still have some mud and grass caught in the cleats! Geez, I guess I wasn't very concerned about it last fall.
I'm expecting another little side challenge tomorrow too. The Course Marshall (golf police) is a retired gent who I have known for years. Jerry and I always carry on and torment each other over just about anything. Last year he gave me 2 specially marked golf balls at the start of the tournament. I had to play all 18 holes with only those balls and I had to return both to him at the end. I did argue and win a exclusion on hole #7. It has a massive gully just off the tee box and I can almost never get my shot over that sprawling pit. So he agreed. I was doing great until hole #14 when I hit into the tall grass.....(you know - where the SNAKES live!) Forget it - no bet is worth meeting Mr. Slithers.
So I lost and had to pay up. And the stakes were REALLY high......a coffee and a cinnamon bun! LOL But even so, I hate to lose. Maybe I can redeem myself tomorrow??
Wish me luck.
