One Busy Weekend

Last week I wrote about our newest great grandchild, Elias Lee Marston.

Our weekly publication is delivered on Tuesday and Wednesday every week.

On Thursday, Ginger informed me that we were going to have a July picnic and invite everyone who hasn’t met Elias.

“ I think that’s a great idea, but don’t get melancholy on me if half of them don’t show up?’ I emphasized.

“I know they’re all busy with their own lives, but I think it’s something we should do,” she suggested.

When I came home from work, Ginger announced the picnic would be on July 18, 2015. We would eat around 4:00 p.m. I told them to come around 2:00 p.m. so we could all catch-up on each other’s families.

“You do realize that we all haven’t met since last Christmas,” she exclaimed.

“How many did you get to R.S.V.P.,” I asked.

I think everyone will be here, except Ty and Brianna,” she responded.

“What about little Lennox?” I fired back.

“Ty and Brianna have other commitments, but Jennifer and Morgan are babysitting,” she countered.

After fourteen trips to the grocery store, more hours than I want to divulge, and a complete “honey do” list finished; it was time for the herd to arrive.

I was ready, lively and quick and I knew it was now or never to give the TV a quick click.

The Open moved with Pars and Eagles, and the players came, and I whistled and shouted and called them by name: “Now Johnson, Garcia, Leishman and Spieth! On, Oosthuizon, on, Garcia on, Scott and Rose. Keep making those birdies, eagles and more. You’re making the game seem like fun, but the one I want to win is the amateur Dunne.

This week’s bottom line: It’s 12:40 on Monday. The Leader is Marc Leishman.
Followed by Zach Johnson, 2nd and Jordan Speith 3rd.

Happiness often sneaks in through a door you didn’t know you left open.
