No problem

May 29, 2019

It was Memorial Day at Meadow Hills Golf Club. The very young lady pictured here had a nasty, buried lie in the rough and forty five yards from the pin. She gave the ball a mighty thump with her seldom used sand wedge and, remarkably, the ball came out and headed to the left edge […]

‘Let’s get this squared away right now. I will not agree to any trips of over fifteen minutes. And…on Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday, I will be allowed out of this contraption to stick my head out the window or you can return me to the shelter. Understand?’

Honey don’t

May 24, 2019

I have received some flak about my hair after Sally posted a picture this week of cowboy after a fishing trip. It was pretty lame to be sure. I wonder if golfers’ wives post pictures of their husbands after a long day on the links? Let’s hope not.

Great read

May 22, 2019

My wife and I were discussing our favorite books after dinner tonight. I asked her to name the best written book she has read in the last three years. Without hesitation, she said ‘Where The Crawdads Sing.’ It’s now on my list too.

Stale beer

May 21, 2019

Drew Goodman was speaking tonight of his favorite ballparks that The Rockies visit each year. One that he mentioned was Wrigley Field in Chicago. He said that ‘part of the allure of Wrigley is the smell of stale beer left over from the previous night.’ Guess I’ll have to see for myself but it doesn’t […]

No worries

May 21, 2019

We are lucky to care for over twenty different dogs throughout the year. Kenya, Lola, Rocky, Donzie, Minnie, Sadie, Monaco, and Lucy to name just a few. They all are special in their own unique way.

A coach wears a multitude of hats. Director…Encourager…Sports Psychologist and more. When all is said and done, a coach who inspires self belief and resilience in her young players is worth her weight in gold.

Perspective

May 16, 2019

A very young cowboy was driving along the South Platte River near Deckers on Tuesday. I spotted a fella who wore a sun shielding face muff like mine. He was casting from the edge of the road to the stream below which was at least an 8 foot drop. His casting was that of a […]

The Urban Egg

May 15, 2019

When Jamie suggested we meet at The Urban Egg at 6991 E. Belleview, I was all in. Once again, the Huevos Rancheros were off the charts good and the service was impeccable. You ought to give it a try for breakfast or lunch. It is easy to support a group that has terrific food and […]

Choice

‘It doesn’t matter how successful or unsuccessful you are right now. What matters is whether your habits are putting you on the path to success.’ James Clear from the terrific book Atomic Habits   Surely, the path to success and meaning is the steeper one not favored by most.

Holy Schmole

May 4, 2019

A national chain of fitness clubs estimates that 32% of its 50,000 members are obsessed with carrying and using their cell phones while working out. Management likens the addiction to that of millennials who say the word ‘like’ so often it makes normal folks want to retch. Good news is on the horizon. A patch…similar […]
