Oh the Horror!

Busy, busy, busy. I'm very busy working and trying to play the greatest sport on earth. But some evil person has done his level best to take that away from me. Yes, someone stole my golf clubs from the trunk of my car. Along with my cart and two pairs of golf shoes, my sandals and my Adidas. I was so upset!

I still can't figure out exactly how. We do know that it happened the morning we left for Las Vegas. My car was in the driveway and not in the garage because we wanted Trudy to have room to run around, and Sean's car was right behind it. We were packing the car Thursday night and early Friday morning. I guess I popped the trunk to get something and didn't close it because my car shows no sign of forced entry. Hell, there is only one lock on the driver side door and that wasn't tampered with. I guess I should be thankful that I still have my car.

We know it happened Friday because Jess showed up to let Trudy run around sometime around 1 PM and he noticed that my trunk lid was up. He called my sister and asked if I would have left the trunk open for any reason and she said no. Well he shut the trunk and then never told me anything about it. It took me 'til Wednesday afternoon (right before my golf lesson) to realize they were gone.

It's not like they stole an expensive set -- it's the sentiment. I loved those pink Wilsons and my pink Adidas shoes and my Footjoy sandals and my pink golf balls. I love that I bought those clubs for myself when I was feeling so down in the dumps about my life and decided that I needed to get out. And I love the peace I feel when I'm out there on the course or the range. I love that I don't have to think about anything but the next stroke and where do I want the ball to go and what club to use.

As always, I look for the silver lining around every cloud and here it is. I do not, and I repeat, DO NOT miss that putter. It was a complete P.O.S. It's to blame for every missed putt I ever had. Also, I did get a hold of another set of clubs and shoes - - Summer's. Thank you baby!

Looking outside, I notice it's perfect golf weather! Gotta run!
