Spring is always a welcome time after the long cold winter which has been much worse this year. Even for us in Texas it has carried on for much longer than usual. Those of you in the north have really had a long siege of winter and now wanting to get out on the golf course. This means getting your golf gear in good condition. I have started that with my golf cupboard in my garage seeing that my shoes and visors are in good shape..
The next thing that happened when I had family visiting from the north they were anxious to play golf. It seems my golf cart gave out and they had to return it to my garage. The following week I made a call to the Fairway Golf Shop to come pick up my cart for a total upgrade. When they picked it up they informed me it needed new batteries so that is what you find when you start spring cleaning. The golf cart is now all ready to go.
I just wish my body was ready to go as I came down with the Shingles in February and as of now almost April I am still fighting this terrible affliction. I am giving you a warning that if you have had chicken pox as a child you can come down with Shingles when you get older. Whatever you do go to your Doctor and get a Shingles shot. I should have known about this but did not pay attention and so now I suffer. It is keeping me off the golf course which is also a pain as now with the warmer weather I would love to get out on the course.
I have been keeping busy with other activities and promoting and writing about the new owners of the golf course. This is something I enjoy doing as nothing pleases me more than to see the Mill Creek Country Club get a new look. It has been fun for me to watch the new things taking shape and snapping pictures of the progress. If one canít play golf then this is a good interest and I love to share it with my fans here.
Spring cleaning can take other interests too as I decided it was time I change my whole living area in my home. This started in January and along with a designer have managed to change the whole new look of my living area. Some say that stress can cause Shingles but I sure did not feel the stress in this undertaking, it was a great challenge. So when you canít play golf due to winter weather or a case of the Singles one just has to move on as life will get better and I will get on the course soon.
