  • Thank you for your service

    Memorial Day (long weekend) isn’t for cookouts, camping, fishing, cold brews or socializing. It’s about remembering our veterans and those currently serving.
    It’s remembering that all gave some but some gave all! It’s respecting the men and women who serve whether you agree with what they have to do or not! It’s often just enough to say, “Thank you for your service.”

    Figures lie.
    Liars figure.
    That’s an old saying that I’ve used many times when people have spouted out numbers that I wasn’t sure that I could agree with.
    And just as many professional and collegiate teams use statistics to plot which player to foul in certain situations or ask, is now the time for a hit and run, golfers too should be able check out their numbers.
    Most of us do not have any idea of our vitals.
    We should.
