Golf Is Good for Something


A sight I rarely see: the sunrise!


We got up at some ungodly hour to get to the BNI (a networking organization of businesspeople) Charity Golf Tournament. Victory Home was the charity (yay!).

We spent the better part of seven hours hanging around doing next-to-nothing while nearly one hundred people whacked little white balls around.


Nancy and I DID entertain ourselves for a while, careening over the course in a cute little cart. I imagine this is the main draw of the game of golf.



I had the foresight to bring snacks, but clementines and almonds could only go so far. Within a few hours, we were all starving. Randy, who has a...robust appetite, snuck away for some dollar burgers. He pulled in to the parking lot and gave us a call ("the eagle has landed") and we slipped out to the veranda for the exchange of contraband.


Naturally, lunch was served immediately following our feeding frenzy.

Not sure how much money was raised at this event which consisted of hours of boredom punctuated by moments of hilarity, but we're quite hopeful that it was significant, between the corporate sponsorships, the raffles, the sales of mulligans and chances to win fancy boats and cars and a million bucks (if only).

Wish I could get my hands on one of those little cart thingies. That was a sweet ride.

For real hilarity, did you try mowing people down in your little golf cart? hehehe (I'd have been tempted if someone tortured me with 7 hours of golf-viewing...)

Funny you should mention that; we did have a couple of close calls, and one old man rebuked Nancy on the way by, "NO talking on cell phones while driving!" Also, Mike and Randy (VH staff person) rode around and Mike suddenly told Randy to turn left and Randy suddenly did, and Mike nearly fell out of the cart. Fun toys, those things!
