    Do you believe in miracles?

    As many of you know, my wife beat cancer last year as a result of a molar pregnancy. It is very rare, and left us with the prospect of potentially never being able to have children after the 27 weeks of chemo. She was healthy again, but health came at a price. (A group of us around here...

    Thank goodness I didn't get selected for the MC!

    Went to the emergency room yesterday morning at 3:30 am a sharp pain in my abdomen and ended having an emergency appendectomy. It was ready to burst, so they rushed me into surgery. I am super sore and have 3 incisions in my belly button, side and low abdomen. Everything went good and I just...

    Stuck in Phoenix

    I had a biz training in Phoenix this week and was supposed to fly back to Seattle this evening. Not so fast... Seattle had a foot of snow, an ice storm, and most flights have been cancelled. I'm stuck. Just checked into a cheap hotel in Phoenix, and am booking a tee time for tomorrow. Could...

    Diet and workout time...

    As most of you know, my wife has battled cancer this past year. It has been taxing on both of our minds and bodies. When she started chemo I was 250 lbs and in decent shape, and as of this morning I am 267 lbs... YIKES. We both shut down our normal workouts and concentrated on fighting the...

    So.... I bought a boat!

    With all that my wife and I have been through over the past year, I figured a present to "us" was in order. My lovely wife has been wanting a boat for quite a while now and so finally I told her we should start looking. You see, I had been resisting the urge for some time since I have owned...

    Mohawks, THP, and the "C" word

    I know this is a golf blog, but I am partially writing this for therapy. I have been pondering whether or not to write this thread for a couple of months now, but have ultimately decided to share my story. My wife and I, along with our families, have been dealing with the dreaded "C" word for...

    Golf, Weather, Location, and Handicaps

    I was out playing golf Saturday in the 52 degree drizzle and started thinking about golf in the NW vs nicer areas, and how it effects handicaps or scores. I have played 3 rounds this month and the conditions have all been the similar. Saturday, the course was wet, and playing crazy long...

    Finishing good rounds!

    Last month I was playing Ka'anapali on Maui from the Blue tees a few days after the Senior Skins Game was there. I started with a double on one, bogey on two, but then birdied 3 of the next 6 holes. Made the turn at 1 over and was 2 over through 14. I started thinking, "I am on pace for a...
