April ICE

Good morning everyone. I said good moning for you because around here, April 15th I woke up to a picture like this above. We had ICE last night. The day we had a temperature of 76 degrees and this morning ICE. It's crazy around here. This week I'm suppose to have two golf lessons not skating lessons. 
On Friday I visited my friend Gerry and his wife Shirley. Gerry is recuperating from open heart surgery. He looks good but it will take about three months to get back to normal but even then he has to be careful. Shirley told me that Gerry will drive the golf cart while she plays golf. Oh my, that will just kill him. Ha,ha,ha. I'm so happy just seeing him up and at it.

It's nobody's birthday at the moment but I just thought it was funny.


A young man who was also an avid golfer found himself with a few hours to spare one afternoon. He figured if he hurried and played very fast, he could get in nine holes before he had to head home. Just as he was about to tee off an old gentleman shuffled onto the tee and asked if he could accompany the young man as he was golfing alone. Not being able to say no, he allowed the old gent to join him. To his surprise the old man played fairly quickly. He didn't hit the ball far, but plodded along consistently and didn't waste much time. Finally, they reached the 9th fairway and the young man found himself with a tough shot. There was a large pine tree right in front of his ball - and directly between his ball and the green. After several minutes of debating how to hit the shot the old man finally said, "You know, when I was your age I'd hit the ball right over that tree." With that challenge placed before him, the youngster swung hard, hit the ball up, right smack into the top of the tree trunk and it thudded back on the ground not a foot from where it had originally lay. The old man offered one more comment, "Of course, when I was your age that pine tree was only three feet tall."

  1. The tree photo is beautiful! We have ice here too, no other choice other than we all weight it out. Hope you get your golf lessons it. We've got warmer weather coming by mid week which means you should, too.

    Glad you got to see your friend!

  4. I"m sorry your weather is what it is but my goodness that photo is gorgeous. I recall one time on New Years Day that I took of Niagara Falls (Canadian side) and it was all ice. It was sunny and there were prism type rainbows. One of the best I have ever taken and I didn't do anything, it was all nature. Hope golf season shows up soon!

  5. Nice photo but then again I'n not in the cold lol

    Strange weather isn't it it's warming up here at last it's apparently in the 60's F here but knowing London it changes quick.

    I laughed at the funnies Pauleo and good to here your friend Gerry is getting on fine although you will need to put your balls away again because of the weather :-)
