Alone in my joy

I spent the weekend watching some amazing golf, thanks to Tiger Woods. I don't know how I became interested in the sport because I've never played a day in my life, except for the times when I've hit the ball around in the backyard. I don't have friends who play the game or are interested in this sport. And without anyone to share the amazing "Tiger" moments with this past weekend, I felt very alone with my excitement when he eagled a couple of holes and kept himself in the game. And when he birdied to tie the leader and force an 18 hole playoff, again I wished to share the moment with someone. But I enjoyed it all the same and I'm glad I didn't miss it. I need to find a sports bar where I can be amongst my "golf" people.

We had some terrible storms blow through Claremore last night that flooded our streets downtown and caused them to be blocked off by the emergency officials. More rain is headed our way right now, so it's not over yet.

We lost electricity during the night for a few hours and all I could think was that I hoped it came back on before the golf playoff today between Tiger and Rocco. And so far, things are looking great!!

That is funny about being around some "gold people". I've never gotten into golf. My favorite sport is football.
