A great day yesterday!
Started with golf in the morning.
I played wuth Yankee Jack and Aaron. Yankee and I played a money game. Mano, mano! Yankee is a much better golfer than I am. Most people are! Anyhow, I wanted 2 strokes on the 6 high handicap holes and 1 on the rest, except for the 3s. Yankee said no. We compromised on 1 stroke a hole on all the holes, including the 3s.
I played my usual suck game on the front nine. Ended up with a 59. However I hung in there with Yankee and we were all even at the end of 9.
I was relieved!
Then came the back 9. I played the best golf in years on the back 9. Shot a 47! I have not broken 50 in about 8 years. Wild!
Even had 2 pars. One of the 3s and the 18th. The 18th hole is the number 1 handicap hole. A long par 5. I pared it! Was on in 4 and sunk a log curling 35 foot putt!
I won all 9 holes on the back side!
Wowie! Won $7! The money meant nothing! The score was everything!
And Yankee was a gentleman as usual and happy for me!
Last night started with Bobby Nesbitt at Aqua. Such a voice! Enjoyed his singing while socializing with several friends.
Afterwards, I met Marty for dinner at the outside bar at La Te Da. A good meal. Tonto was bartending. She is already a Key West icon.
Then across the street to the Keys Piano Bar. Friend Terri White was singing.
Such singing! Her voice is strong and vibrant. And polished! Her many years of professional engagement comes through with every note.
Terri and Mark Watson did a duet. A love ballad. Touching! Brought tears to my eyes!
That was my day! Great golf, great music and great friends! Life is good!
Tonight bocci! The final match in our 4 team round robin. A money game! The money game! For all the marbles! Winner takes all!
We are playing Larry Smith’s team. Competitors all, especially Larry. We beat them last year in a similar encounter. I hope the trend continues into this evening’s match. I am ready. My team mates are ready.
