We're Okay

There were some tense moments. At times anxiety levels were elevated and tempers started to flare, but the most important part is everyone is okay and no one got hurt.

Yes, I took DOR (Daughter of Ralph) and future SILOR (Son of Law of Ralph) out golfing yesterday. DOR has been on a golf course once. This was the first time for SILOR. Several trees were injured and at one critical moment, Ralph and SILOR had to take cover when DOR ricocheted a golf ball off several trees. Numerous windows in the adjacent apartment buildings were threatened and cars in the parking lots were considered primary targets.

But we made it through the par three course without hitting any cars, breaking any windows, or inflicting bodily harm to anyone.

Ralph
You must be a great teacher and a great Father in Law to have the time and compassion to teach both your daughter and SILOR how to golf.

Aw, a great time was had by all. That's what golf courses are made for. So they tell me.

No bodily harm or damage? You call that a golf game? Where's the fun in that? *G*

You did good Ralph. Mrs. Jim hit a fellow student in the mouth with her ball at her first lesson. The victim lady had several stitches put in at the ER.
There is hope for those kids too, Mrs. Jim has progressed a lot since, she is getting her second set of new clubs, they should be complete next week.

That's what happens when someone decides they want to live near a golf course. At any time, pro or non-pro can slam a golf ball into their house. Well, luckily the trees survived (and dad too)!

Hi Ralph,
Cute photos of them both. I *have* been away too long. Clever "Ralphonian" nicknames. Sounds like you all had a ball.(I won't say that's par for the course.) You didn't see the preceding sentence because I am not as funny as you.
