The Happy Golfer


Shorts, a haircut and Southern hospitality

The Happy Golfer is happily playing his way through the South. After finishing a round in Memphis, he stopped off on Beale Street – the birthplace of both the blues and jazz – to listen to some street musicians and watch folks dancing on the sidewalks. In need of a haircut, Nick asked the pro at the next golf course to recommend a shop. The pro told him to wait while he called one of his cocktail servers who’d been a hairdresser. She came right over to the course with her tools, took him up to the card room, and proceeded to cut and style his hair. True Southern hospitality!

 

The bad weather has been trailing Nick but never preceding him, so he’s managed to miss the major storms affecting the area. He’s discovered some beautiful campgrounds on lakes where wildflowers are in full bloom. It’s actually becoming very spring-like, so he’s graduated to wearing shorts and slathering on the sunscreen. Those Callaway caps help keep the sun off his face while playing.

 

A visitor from San Clemente, whose name will be kept secret for a while, will be joining along on the adventure later next week, so stay tuned to find the name revealed in the next blog. (No, it’s not Fran; she had to cancel her plans to meet him in Cleveland when offered a trip to Sydney, Australia instead. Fran will be visiting Nick’s Australian relatives while he’s staying with her Ohio family, and she will join him when he reaches Montana.)

 

Keep in touch with The Happy Golfer; he loves hearing from home and friends. Check the “Where is Nick” link at left to track his route and see if he’s playing at a course near you!

Good luck on your travels. You will remember us from Dogwood Hills Golf Club. We have the expresso machine in the back of our Jeep. We followed you to Bay Breeze Golf Course, Kessler AFB, Ms. The staff at the Registration desk mentioned you.

Nick,

Christos Anesti!

I heard from Fran that you celebrated Easter in Agusta GA. Sounds wonderful. Now you are sure to play much better golf. No, not because you attended the services, but are able to eat none lenten food again.

Enjoy
