Sunday, August 13, 2017      26 comments

Stressful day (highly stressful day). And the antidote? Golf. There is nothing like that lush green smell, the big sky and evening bird song. Ahhhh. Slept well. And woke up to a brand new day. Dear Charlie cleverly conceal... Read more

DOMS!!
Monday, August 07, 2017      26 comments
