  1. This is great. I may write my own, as I found this wildly entertaining. I love that you can call your public electrical company and they call you by your name. I wonder if mine does that – you’ll have to read mine to find out. Nah! They don’t know me that well, as they are one larger company with three very small counties.

      1. I played some of my most memorable golf there. The most difficult scoring course is also there on the peninsula: Spyglass Hill. My pro-am partner and I played the par 3 3rd in 3 shots! He made an ace and I chipped in for 2 from the water plants. Great memories.

  2. This was great getting to know you! I recently started golfing, really enjoy it. We cheer for The Gunners! And although I’m not a Pats fan, I have a big crush on Gronk and Julian Edelman! Have a great new year, Danny!

  3. Thank you so much for sharing this with all of us. Feel like I know you better now. I personally love my Green Bay Packers but then was born and raised In Wisconsin. Your home town sounds wonderful. Have a great day. Perhaps should and will share things about myself. Again thanks for sharing..

    1. I am so happy you liked. I know some people don’t share their personal life, but I think if you are going to be honest then be open. If I am going to open my brain and inner, deep thoughts then sharing a pic is a tiny thing, right!?

      1. What a blessing you are. I agree with the sharing of personal life . that is exactly what I am trying to do with my blogs. My experiences put into words with the hopes of helping others along the way. that is what life is all about helping others . Have a great day.

  4. That’s cool! I’m married to a Polish man… it’s nice to know you more. Maybe I should do something more. I find it very hard to trust and I am bordering on being agoraphobic. I’m selfish too. I’m trying to fight off osteoporosis but I’m stuck in my mindset. I write to heal but don’t do much else of anything. I’m sore but not as sore as my husband. Jx
