Bertie wins Longest Ears contest

Our dogs go to Seaside Animal Care in Calabash. Dr. Ernest Ward hosts an annual Open House with treats for the dogs and the owners. This year, Bertie won the Longest Ears contest. Fortunately, it was a category that did not require any talent. Our little boy is a champion.

On Monday, I got lucky and won a bottle of fine Australian Chardonnay for being closest to the pin among our group of twenty golfers. I also had a nice chip in from about 15 yards out. Yesterday, I shot my personal best 93 in a round that had five pars and remarkably no penalty strokes. It's the first time I've ever managed to get in 18 holes without knocking one in the water or out of bounds.

Travel Update

I've been remiss in failing to keep our readers updated on our travels. During the last couple of months, Lisa and I have taken several short trips to various places within a comfortable day's driving distance. I've added a few back-posted entries to cover those trips. If you're a daily reader, scroll down in case you missed something.

Joy Bisby

We note the passing of Lisa's mother's dear friend, Joy Bisby, in Sheffield, England. "Auntie" Joy was like a surrogate mother to Lisa. She will be missed. Our condolences to Joy's daughter, Gillian and her family.
