An Evening of Golf

When a week is so frustrating and stressful it leaves knots in your shoulders, it's good to end it outside on an evening where the smell of freshly mown crash and the sound of water rushing through nearby streams forces you to exhale.

When a little girl decides by the sixth hole that going "super fast" in a golf cart with the wind blowing in her hair and the tress rushing by is a thrill.

When a boy swings and putts and realizes there's a whole lot of fun in spending time with his daddy playing a game of golf.

When the birds, in red and brown and blue, sing their melodies that make you wonder why you don't do this every night of the week.

And when you get home there's an unexpected turn.

A husband realizes he doesn't have his key and a wife, only because it's Friday and she's so ready for a break from it all, sees a grand adventure for the weekend. That is until the husband makes it in through an unlocked window and opens the door for the rest to come in.

Then it's back to the unanswered e-mails and the unreasonable demands coming from the outside world and that grand adventure is put off for another time.
