Our Day in Pictures: 06/24/11

Hello blogosphere.....long time no see!! :-)

I've made two new goals....
1) post about what we do....SOON after we do it...not six months later
2) get caught up on the days I've know, Jan - June :-)

I'll, in most cases (especially for those updates from MONTHS ago)....use very little wordage. Pictures, pictures, and more pictures. Eventually, the goal is to get into the habit of posting more often....and I'll work my way up to words again. (giggle)

As you can see from this first post....I'm failing at the "less words" thing already.

You can take the girl from the words, but you can't take the words from this girl.

(I have no idea what that means.)

OK, so these first few posts are actually things that happened this weekend. Words are OK. :-)

So, without further ado.....I give you Friday night golf league.

I changed into my golf clothes at work. On the way out the door, my boss asked where I was headed. I told him I was taking my clubs out for their yearly game.

(Last time I'd taken them out was Memorial Day weekend.....2010.)


The girls (Val and Dee) have standing tee times at a local country club. After weeks of inviting us, and schedules not matching up....we finally made it!!

I was on a "team" with Frankie and Steve. Mot was on a "team" with Val and Dee.

Friday was the first sunny, gorgeous day, in quite some time. The weather was perfect!!! No wind, not too hot. And the bugs stayed away until the sun went down on us. It was awesome!!!!!

Elmwood is a gorgeous course in mid-town Omaha. Shakespeare on the Green was in progress on the UNO campus grounds that border the course.

People kept walking across our fairways on the way to the show.

At one point a dude walks onto the course in front of me, just as I was getting ready to take a shot. He was on his cell phone...walking in circles, in the midst of a very heated conversation. I waited for him to look up and realize where he was....but he never did.


(he looked up at me)


(he ran quickly)

Frank in his cart.

Steve taking a shot.

Val, Dee and Mot on the green ahead of us.

(they are actually little dots in front of all those trees on the me, they're there)

The sprinklers came on as we were finishing the 11th hole. We played 11 and 12 before calling it a night.

Or was it 12 and 13?

I forget. :-)

Steve playing "speed putt before you get soaked" on the last hole.

Val's zoo of club covers.

We may or may not have agreed to collect the pins for the country club on the way in to the clubhouse. And we may or may not have been jousting with them on the way back.

Val and Mot

After we finished up, we headed to a pub just down the street to get dinner. It was about 9:45, and we were all pretty hungry.

(Side Note: If you want an AWESOME black and bleu burger....Clancy's on 72nd and Pacific is a rockin' place to go!!!!!)

We watched the last million or so innings of the South Carolina/Virginia CWS game.

It ended badly. I was hoping the pretty orange jerseys would win.



(I mean, I would never pick a favorite based on jersey color. That's such a girlie thing to do.)


After that we said our goodbyes and headed home.

Mot's birthday is today.

I can always remember what day Flag Day is because of him.


As I'm picking up flotsam and jetsam from the coffee table this morning, I find this.

"To my amazing wife. I love you! Just thought you should know. Your hubby, Mot"

Happy birthday babe!!!!!
