Golf Camp


View from the tee box on Number 2 at Pine Needles Golf Course.

I just got back from golf camp. This was my second year to attend Peggy Kirk Bell's Golfari for Women. She was under the weather this year and her presence was sorely missed. But, let me just say, the rest of the staff did a wonderful job of continuing on! By the last day, I told the ladies at my table during lunch that I was sure I would slap the next person who told me what to do about my golf swing! LOL. Now, I was exaggerating. I would never slap a one of the most gracious and competent teachers I have ever had the privilege of working with... my point is that you are worn out... had it to here... finished... by the end of the week. And, for just a few hours in the midst of the week, I actually felt the golf swing like it is meant to be... oh, how elusive it is... but, I felt it! There is hope of finding it again! My deepest gratitude to Mrs. Bell's wonderful staff.



Lined up at the start of the day... This place is nothing if not organized.




BIG buckets of balls... for the end of the day... when you STILL want to work on your swing... and they are available to give you MORE help... lol...



We listened...



We took notes...




We watched... We wished...



We tried...



We had moments...



Here is Peggy Kirk Bell... the Matriarch of Pine Needles... her daughter, Bonnie and son-in-law, Pat worked hard with us all week... We were glad to see her on the last night.


These are two wonderful ladies from D.C. Joanne, on the left, is an energizer bunny! Judy, on the right, was one of my partners for the week. She is a great little golfer! I was so happy to be paired with her!



These two ladies sat at our table the last evening. Emily and Mary Jane were catching up on their lives since boarding school!



And, Kris and Sarah had us in stitches all week! Great new friends from Chicago. Milha and I had a wonderful week... for the second time. Great golf, great folks, great food. Doesn't get any better than that.

Sock Monkey Shower



I am so far behind on my posts! The most fun gathering was on Mother's Day weekend. My daughter's friends and sister-in-laws hosted a most special baby shower for her. It was great fun to gather with those that look forward to this baby's birth almost as much as I do. It is a blessing to me to realize how much Amanda is loved. I am grateful.



Bless both these children...



Amanda's neighbor from Frisco, Carolyn, was so fun to watch as she first saw Amanda!




These young women just out did themselves! Every thing was just perfect. Sylvia (sister-in-law), Lisa (sister-in-law), Katherine, Dana and Lauri (long-time-friends), thank you so much. As you are beginning to realize with your own children, those who love and bring joy to their lives delight your own. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
