Is there a story here?
[yes, actually there are three little stories here.]
[and click the pictures to see them bigger]
.
Mrs. Jim and I went golfing this morning. Golfing always starts with a little routine. I back the car out and get the cart ready.
.
Then Adi has to go for a ride. This is the first story. Two things happen with Adi's ride: 1) Mrs. Jim takes Adi and me to the proshop and we walk back; or 2) I am playing golf also, so Mrs. Jim takes Adi for a little ride and brings her back. That is what we did today.
.
Second story now. When I was filling our divot filling sand vessels with sand, there were two practice balls beside the score cards. I brought them out with us and announced to Mrs. Jim that we could take a practice shot before the drive we would count.
.
Mrs. Jim wouldn't have any of that--not in the rules, you know. I went ahead and used the black striped ball anyway. It was a really good shot. So, since she wasn't going to do Mulligans, I said that would be my drive.
.
That ball played so well, until the 14th hole. I was playing it as my ball generally goes in the water or bushes, then I would just get out a better one and play with it.
.
On number 14, my striped practice ball almost went out of bounds to the left, under a whole lot of trees. I said, fine, and played with the ball in the middle of the picture.
.
That ball in the middle of the picture, along with thirty others were in a tray outside the fence of some poor soul's back yard. I guess a lot go there.
.
Son, Mike generally gives me his very nice used balls to play with. He is about a scratch golfer and plays a new one after using it for nine or so holes. But I was running low and hadn't been to Mike's for a while. These were pretty nice and were very convenient.
.
Third story. After we got home, Adi bounded out the door, through the garage, and got in the golf cart. You can write the rest of that story.
.

.
Note: You are correct, that striped (black) ball isn't the one I lost. That nice fellow with the tray of balls had this one too.

Ah, Adi is so cute riding in the golf cart! I do believe you and Mrs. Jim have one spoiled doggie!!
 
Adi should be allowed to golf too.
 
Mrs. Jim

I do not know whether you watch O'Reilly factor, but, he took sort of a cheap shot at women golfers about 3 nights ago. He said something about always being "stuck" behind women on the course (implying that they all play slow and hold things up). Maybe you should fire him off an email?
 
We were 'stuck' behind a couple of very old [older than me] men yesterday. Finally, we played through.
The golf retailers--sporting goods stores and pro shops-must agree with O'Reilly. Most have a very limited inventory of golfing items for women, down to gloves, even.
Mrs. Jim might do that e-mail unless we figure out he is reading this blog, lol.
