end-o-the-day

4:41 p.m.

 

Deadline day, let the ‘posty-verse’ get away from me a bit.

 

Lots of people compare life to golf and vice versa and I’d have to say I’m one of those who agree.

Some times things are just clicking and sometimes they’re not. After a few mediocre holes during a round this weekend I just began to grove the ball with my five wood.

Long, straight BOMBS, towering shots without coming out of my shoes. What a relief after flailing away at Milestone a week before. I couldn’t hit water falling out of a boat and then started knocking it dead at Bend of the River. Just a few littel adjustments and CLICK I’m hitting the ball like (insert the name of your favorite pro here). It’s amazing what you can do if you just keep your head down, elbow in, line up correctly, remember the correct grip for the shot, don’t grip it too tight………

It’s amazing to me how much fun that game can be most of the time and now, that I have actually learned to keep my ball dry and out of the weeds ( I didn’t say ‘rough’, that’s Joe’s thing), somewhat frustrating. I know I can do better, but sometimes can’t; usually because some small detail has been missed.

I’m chalking it all up to to flying elbow at this point – but who knows?

 

 

Dog show

The Granville Small Animal Hospital returns as the host/sponsor of this fun event. People really enjoyed themselves and kept things nice for others walking in the park (if you know what I mean). Organizers tell me it’s any dog this is not Westminster so your puppy does not need a pedigree just an owner with a sense of fun and humor.

At the same time Art will be in the park as well. The Granville Chamber has moved the art walk to Veterans park so people will be able to catch a ‘twofer.’

Many had to decide last year, now they’ll both be in the same spot. No need to decide.

 

Question of the week.

Is there a question you just want asked to your fellow residents? Keep it clean and send it in. Reply to this blog with a suggestion and who knows? Maybe ‘Question submitted by …’ can be your 15 minutes.
