Amen Corner

There was kind of a time table for finishing this piece, so it was a huge relief when a bunch of green blobs finally began to look like trees and bushes and grass.  

Apparently, this is a famous spot from Augusta where the Masters tournament is held. 
I am not a golf person...  I could expand on that... but I think I'll just leave it hanging...

While I worked, I thought a lot about my in-laws; they both loved golf.  They played some, but mostly they loved watching golf, living on a course, and admiring the landscaping of the courses. 

So, how did I... a country girl from the farm, end up with a city boy from country-club family?  That's a good question.  I'm not sure I have the answer, but we sure have had a good time.

Just look at these two kids!! 
30 years ago this week!

Want to know a funny little fact about exactly what they were thinking at this exact minute?  "I can't believe we didn't kiss?"  "We did. Sort of."  "That doesn't count as a kiss!"  "The wreath was about to slide off my head. I couldn't look up."  "What?" "Sorry! We can kiss once we get down the aisle." "How could we miss the kiss?" "Let me fix my wreath. Ok, now, you can kiss me now." ... sigh...  Oh, well. :)
