Birthday golf

I used my birthday gift of 9 holes of golf today. Seems like I peaked as a golfer back when I was 31... I hit 5 trees, lost 4 balls, used 3 mulligans and most embarrassingly, almost hit two members of the congregation (to my credit, I did yell a hearty and distinct "Fore!").

I let a couple of kids play through (I'll be generous and say they were 12-years old; they easily would have outplayed me). I'm rather glad they didn't see my ongoing humiliation at Hole #9 where I had to invoke my personal forgiveness clause of stopping count after 10 shots.

Yeah, pretty much the only thing that went right was the bike ride there and back again.
