Whew! What a whirlwind!

I have just returned from a whirlwind trip to visit my parents in North Louisiana. Today is my dad's 83rd birthday and on Wednesday of last week I took him for a heart cath. His shortness of breath is not from a blockage! Could it be nothing more than AGE! I think so, but it is hard for him to accept. Since he and Mom have been attacked by age-related infirmities, I have tried to keep their yard manicured and plant all the spring flowers. Mom loves her flowers and he loves his garden, so last week I did both! I have become quite the farmer and , yes, I can run a tiller! I work so hard while I am there that I can hardly move at night, but when I leave, the place is beautiful. Did I mention that we are talking acres here.....not a tiny little suburban yard? It takes me 3 hours to do all the mowing and that's on a riding lawn mower!!!

It didn't take me long to get back in MY world today....that would be losing golf balls on the golf course. Do golf balls have magnets in them that are attracted to water? I think mine do! Hitting a ball in the water automatically adds 3 strokes to the hole and that's only if I don't hit it in the water a second time!!! AARGH!

Tomorrow, I am very much looking forward to getting rid of my glasses by having Conductive Keratotomy on one eye. I fully expect to be on the golf course for my golf lesson at 4:30 after having the 3-5 minute procedure at 10:30 A.M. I may be expecting too much!!!
