By Wayne Halm –

Mission: More laughs than putts —- Mission accomplished.

On October 26th 2014 I played the Kauai Lagoons course with David and Judi Sutton from Bell, California.

My wife Sally rode with me to offer advice and comments.  Comments like below:

Sally  Wayne, you are standing too close to the ball .... after you hit it.

This was a fun group – there were some good shots – some bad shots – a lot of jokes – and a lot of laughs.

 

Many of the jokes fell on my shoulders - but they were funny.

Sometimes I felt like 'Abbot' to these three's 'Costello'

Make no mistake about it – Judi can play golf – For a while I thought this would inspire Sally to take up the game – but it inspired her to other things.

 

Judi (Wayne, why don't you try hitting the ball close to the hole like Judi)

For the above comment I made Sally stand next to the aging Octopus plant - but she had more to say. (Wayne, maybe you should wear your glasses when you putt - on second thought just close your eyes.) .

Over by the ocean any hurt feelings quickly healed.  I don’t believe it is possible not to smile and be happy there.

Of course, being ‘me’, I just couldn’t leave well enough alone – I pushed.  I pushed for more pictures, and this got Sally started again.

Sally (Wayne, you would score better if you made the ball land on the golf course like David does.)

I couldn’t get mad – I had pushed – I had asked for it – and David did consistently hit the fairways.  Still, Sally had to have the last word.

Sally (Wayne, maybe your shoes are preventing you from getting the feel of the greens.)

Yes, Sally and I are still married – and now we have the memory of a fun day on the course with a great couple, David and Judi.

Come play golf with me.
