It's birthday week!

I'll be turning 61 on Wednesday, August 26 and as part of the celebration I try to get as many rounds in as possible around that time. This year is filling up nicely. I played Simi Hills Saturday with 2 4somes of friends, as we were doing a send off of one of the guys who is moving his business and family to Texas next week. He will be missed, but we wish him all the best!
I shot my best round of the year, a nice 81! No double bogies, which is always one of priorities and I kept the ball in play all day.
Today I played with the Simi Hills Sr. Men's Club. i shot 88 which was a bit disappointing, but I was frustrated all day as 2 of the guys in my 4some were cheating all day and seemed not to care one bit! I saw them roll a ball that was out of bounds back into play, the were giving each other gimme's from 4 feet and sometimes longer, and a myriad of other things. I tried not to let it bother me, but failed miserably. This was my 1st event with this group and I'm just not sure if I want to continue right now, although, I have to believe they are in the minority and most are playing by the rules.
Tomorrow a couple of friends are talking me to Knollwood CC for a round. I haven't played there in over 10 years and am looking forward to how it goes. finally, Wednesday I'm being treated to another round by friends as a celebration gift. Good times will be had and we are all quite competitive so i know the intensity will be up too. It's sure to be a great day.
Life is good, the golf game is coming around, and I'm surrounded by family and many great friends, it really can't get any better. I hope you all are getting out there when the temps aren't so difficult too deal with. Play well my friends!!
