As I was reading the weather forecast on the radio this morning I got a phone call from my friend Jim.  He just wanted to say Merry Christmas and remind me where we were last year at this time.  My father-in-law Leonard, along with my buddies Jim & Tim, and I were out golfing on Elmwood Golf Course here in Sioux Falls.  It was the only time in my life I remember golfing on Christmas Eve here in the mid-west.  What a great way to celebrate the holidays!  18 holes of real Christmas cheer.  Oh what a difference a year makes.  For old times sake I may still get in 18 hole of Tiger Woods golf on my IPad.  I don't think I'll use the 9 iron.  MERRY CHRISTMAS!
