New Season Beginning!
Saturday, January 27th, 2007
I got so caught up in practicing last week, I haven’t kept you all posted on the things that are going on. I am still working very hard on my swing tips I was taught a couple of weeks ago. The old saying is, you have to get bad before you get good. I was definitely chopping the little white ball around the past two weeks, but I am seeing good things right around the corner. I almost holed out from the fairway 4 times in the same round! If that’s not a good sign, I don’t know what is.
My roommate and I took a “quick” road trip to Memphis, TN last weekend. It was her mother’s 60th birthday and she wanted to surprise her. It worked like a charm, and when we came strolling through the door, her mom broke down in tears. It was a great thing to witness.
And I must have bad luck when it comes to law enforcement. We stayed in downtown Memphis at my roommate’s friend’s condo that she wasn’t using. So obviously, you have to park on the street. Well, I woke up the next day to see a parking ticket on my windshield. I was parked at a meter but the meter said the fee doesn’t start till 9 a.m. The ticket showed I was fined at 8:27. I don’t know how I got the ticket since I was well within the time limit. But, instead of risking another New York fiasco with the courts, I decided to pay it. No need to have something like that ruin my credit. Guess I just need to be more careful about where I park my car!
I can’t believe it is almost February! I am hoping to play in the Florida Open at the end of the month to get geared up for the first Futures event. I always like to play in something before the season starts so I can work out any ticks or nervous jitters. I am looking forward to getting on the road again and on getting some sun on my white legs!
I hope all of you are doing well and staying warm since it seems like a cold front has hit every part of the country. Hopefully, there isn’t a lot of shoveling being done! Take care, and I promise to get another entry up on time! The next quote is from Arthur Ashe: “From what we get, we can make a living; what we give, however, makes a life.”
