The Putter vs. The “Puter”

It felt pretty darn good taking the last three days off from the internet. I figured what a great way to spend the Easter holiday weekend doing some simple stuff. Dinner with the family, practice time at the golf course, and bbqing in the back yard.

It is too easy to get so involved in keeping up with all the news, and views that are available at a push of a button, or a stroke of a key. How often have I told myself that I was just going to look at a few headlines at some websites, and then 4 to 6 hours later, and still be sitting in front of the screen!

Well, this weekend I took no chances. I never even turned the darn thing on. I spent many an hour watching the Masters Golf tournament. Bubba Watson won the thing on the second play-off hole. What is amazing about Bubba, is the fact he is self-taught, and has never had a lesson. I think Bubba is a great golfer, and even a better person. My only issue with him is that he is a crier! Guy starts crying when he thinks about crying! I will admit that I wish more pro athletes’ biggest faults were crying.

So I am out of the fox-hole, and I am starting my 7 vacation day run. I am not going to start it with a marathon blogging session though. After a quick doctor visit, it is off to the golf course, where the “puter” is not allowed but the “putter” is.

    I love the idea and practice it whenever I can … The escape bit that is! … but don’t you find yourself spending hours catching up with your e-mails when you do go back … I have had a couple of day’s off … 3 or 4 posts … but endless e-mails … Help!

    Catching up on email is the worst!

    The e-junk-mails are the worst! I like saving most of my blogging for work…makes me feel like a professional blogger. 🙂

    Any break from the usual routine is refreshing and sometimes the blog can become a task rather than play.

    Ha! Good for you John. It’s way too easy to get all caught up! And I had to laugh when you said “Guy starts crying when he thinks about crying.” Well said. It must be hard to be a guy and cry at the drop of a hat! Tiger and Bubba played the Masters at the opposite ends of the spectrum both technically and mentally! I’m so glad Bubba won!
