I just love to play golf......

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty Chesterfield

....And I am sure that there are those of you that do too.  I can hardly wait for the spring warm up so I can get out and start swinging the clubs.  One of my goals this year is to get out at least once a week and enjoy all that Mother Nature has to offer.  You know things like the sun, the fun, the fellowship with your friends, throwing back a couple of cold ones and possibly using the eraser on the end of YOUR pencil!!!!

I have this past client that keeps hinting that we need to go out and play a round or two and have a fun day.  He is always emailing me wonderful golf humor.  Well just the other day he sent me the following..........

Just Take a Drop!

There is a reason you don't go into the weeds, where
it's warm and wet,
  looking for your golf  ball! 

  

I think that I will be using a riding lawn mower this year instead of the golf cart!!!  What about you?

David,

I have a good healthy respect for snakes and give them all the room that they need or want.  I will be going back to your post just shortly.

Todd,

I would have never thought of you as the aggressor.  Maybe I need to start reading between the lines of some of your posts...

Good mornin' Don—There are good reasons to take a drop and this guy is one of them! I don't play golf, but I learned so much about the game from my husband. In Texas a lot of drops are taken due to snakes and fire ants. Hope you get your game on for the Spring!

Good morning to you Linda,

Trust me from now on I will take a good healthy drop.  I know about them fire ants and they are nothing to mess with.

Janie,

You would think that they would go hunting eggs where the chickens or birds were.  Trust me when I say that there is NO way that that was me holding that snake.  I leave that to the professionals and I am surly not one.

I once played a round while on business in Orlando and we were told under no circumstances follow a ball into the weeds-really big reptiles there!

I love this.  It made me go back to my vet tech days.  I assisted in a surgery on a 200 lb boa once.  He had an abscessed tooth.

Don, this was great.  Gives a whole new meaning to Easter EGG hunting!  :-)

I forwarded this to my dad, he used to be an avid golfer.

Terry,

We lived in the Miami area and it was not unsual to see gators sunbathing close to the canals that were all around the area.

Debi,

My thought is that is one hungry snake to be eating golf balls.

Don, I too love to play golf. Here in Southern California we are able to play most of the year so I've already been out a few times!  That poor snake... he must have thought he was eating eggs? I guess that a snakes digestive track isn't meant to break down golf balls!

John,

Now you have gone and done it.  Already been out playing golf a couple of times.  I am really jealous.

If they are going to make those holes so small, it isn't my fault.

I guess you are right, people are bigger than those little holes.  ;-)
