Better than golf...

Postby Mel McKinney » Wed Jan 18, 2012 9:41 am

Mountains cast spells on me - Why, because of the way Earth-heaps lie, should I be Chocked by joy mysteriously; stilled or drunken-gay? Why should a brown hill trail Tug at my feet to go? Why should a boggy swale Tune my heart to a nameless tale Mountain marshes know?

A bad day in the mountains beats a good day on the golf course?
I have more age than experience, more experience than knowledge, and more knowledge than wisdom.
Yet somehow I usually make it back to the car safely; and oftentimes, so do the people that I'm with.

I don't play golf, but it keeps me employed. ;)

Well I guess you could take golf into the mountains...

"..better than golf."

That's what people who suck at golf say.

Got to agree with Darin. As a Golf Course Superintendent it keeps me employed also. But I do like to golf.

Do you get a mulligan? :D

I can't take up golf. Another dang hobby!
