I've always been a "dawn patrol" guy, but the last few years I can hardly see the ball well enough to hit it until the sun actually comes over the horizon.  It's embarrassing to ask my playing partners if anyone saw where my last shot went, because I have no clue.

I play with a large group of 12-15 players on weekends.  The default is to put me in a foursome with the older guys, even though I'm a single digit handicap and the older guys are  mostly 18-30 handicaps.  I guess the young guys would prefer to play with other young guys.  My vanity tells me that they just don't like getting beat by an old-timer, but in reality they just have more in common socially with those of similar age.

I ran into a guy in a hospital that recognized me and asked if I remembered him. Nothing about him reminded me of anyone I knew. I was stunned when he told me who he was, and I'm sure I stared slack jawed at him. His long locks of brown hair were gone, he'd gained I couldn't say how many pounds, and he seemed shorter.

Gave me some comfort he recognized me, but it really drove home how long it had been (a good 40 years) since I last saw him. That and being called 'sir' more often.

The absolute perfection of existence, life, and aesthetic beauty is the work not only of evolution but of a powerful being.
