Where have I been all week?


At the Texas-Oklahoma Junior Golf tournament in Wichita Falls.  DS didn’t play as well as we hoped, or as well as he is capable of, but that’s golf for ya.  Still, we had fun and enjoyed some good family time.  We stayed at the Candlewood Inn & Suites, a pet friendly facility.  I give the one in Wichita Falls two thumbs up, and would definitely stay there again.  I’m going to take a moment to brag on my son, and to rant a bit.  As frustrated as I’m sure he had to feel at times, he carries himself with dignity and grace on a golf course.  Of course, he knows if he were to act the way some of the kids are allowed to act by their parents, that we would pull him right off and take him home.  What is up with parents standing by while their 16 yr. old is throwing his golf club, even dropping the “f-bomb” or other curse words?  I cannot stand tantrum throwing on a golf course. 

DS did win the long drive contest for his age group, and got a little trophy for that.  We got home yesterday, and I’m so glad to have the weekend before having to go back to work.  Four days on the golf course, in the high 90’s and low 100 degree temperatures, wore me out.

And in case you didn’t know, real men use pink golf tees…lol!
