The other night I was prepping for a client presentation. Libby and I were sitting on the couch. She was watching a show as I was going over my notes. All of a sudden and completely out of the blue her hand clonked me on the head. I was initially taken back and in a slightly stern voice asked her why she had proceeded to do what she had done. My sternness turned to laughter as I noticed on the TV a V8 commercial had just come on!
I probably have time for one more...let's see....
A couple of weeks ago Libby was with us at Aunt Deanna's pool and was telling me to come closer to her so she could jump to me and I'd be close enough to catch her. She was quick to tell me to come "closer closer". However, once I had gotten too close she changed her demand. I was now too close and I needed to move "backer backer". So cute.

Sherb Livesay quick passed out the tournament rules to all golfers, 12 this year. Once again we couldn't roll the ball at all in the rough. It seems to get tougher and tougher each year. I had the opportunity to play with John Sampson, Sherb Livesay, and Ken Livesay on Day 1 of the tourney.
I posted a relatively decent 41 going out and parred the first 3 holes on the back before blowing up on a 135 par 3. I was excited to only have to claim a triple bogey. The next hole was a 500 yard par 5 and I blistered a drive to the left side of the fairway leaving a great angle into the green. With 225 left to the green, I pulled out my trusted 3 wood and just as I was coming down in my swing I heard a kid yell at the pool in our community just enough to lose focus pushing my 3 wood way right. I miraculously found my ball pirched high on sand. I won't go through all the gorry details but I ended up with another triple bogle. The train was certainly off track at this point. I just wanted to get into the clubhouse with something respectable.
I completed 18 and posted an 87 net 70 and stood in 3rd place after day 1. I was 2 shots back of Bill Livesay and Brad Livesay. Tomorrow was the final round and I found myself in the final group with Brad, Bill, and Bob.
We played the Pennisula Course about 8 miles from our Beach House. I went out in 41 and in in 28 for a 79. That was only the second sub 80 round of my life. The last time was the final round of the 2006 BPL in Flowery Branch, GA. That round propelled me from near last place to a respectible 2nd place finish. This year however it was enough to bring home the coveted BPL Invitational Trophy that will be on display in The Livesay Group PLLC conference room for viewing.
