I don't know what it is about me and snakes and golf! Just got back from another hairy back golf trip, this time to Alabama. We had a blast as always, however we were warned about the poisonous snakes we might encounter. I never really pay attention to that speech because I'm thinking ....I'll never see a snake. Well we are about 3 holes into the round when my ball goes right into a pond, just on the edge. I'm thinking, no problem, I'll just walk over a take it out ...drop.. and play on. As I reach for the ball this SNAKE charges out of this bush right next to me...WOW..you talk about being scared!...I left the ball there and ran back to the cart and moved on. Now I know why they make adult diapers!!!

Today was one of the most exciting days ever!! My brother Neil and me like to ride our dirt bike up the mountain. Living in California it's tough to find a place to ride, but we did and it's really cool. I was on the back of the dirt bike today and saw a unicorn diary, yes a unicorn!! Well, I thought it was. It was really a white pony. I was so excited. I hopped on the back of the white pony. It didn't have a saddle, but I didn't care. It was out front of someone's yard eating flowers. It was almost in the middle of the street, so I figured I could bring it home like a lost dog. It didn't have a name around its neck like a dog would diary, so it's fair game right? I told Neil to ride the motorcycle back home and tell mom I was bring home my pony. I figured we have grass and flower too, so he would be cheap to keep. We could just put him in the backyard. It's like a dream come true diary, I have my own white pony. As I was riding home like pocahontas, all of the kids in the neighborhood came running out of their houses asking me if he was mine. I felt so proud diary. When I got home, my mom said no! Can you beleive she is telling me I can keep my dream diary!! The pony is free and white and reminded me of a unicorn and she's telling me NO!!
My Mom made me take the pony back to the house where I found it, she followed me in her car. When we got there, she knocked on the door and a man answered. He said the pony gets out of his backyard all the time. Can you believe he's a police officer!!! He was really nice and cool. He has two dogs that he talks in a different language to, I think its german. He told my mom the pony gets lonely and I can come ride him anytime I wanted to. My mom will take me there Monday, Weds and Friday.
My mom and dad sent me a few items they felt I may want to keep and one was my childhood diary!! You know, the one with the lock that all of us girls thought NO ONE could ever break in order to read our deepest, darkest secrets :) Yes, I'm sure my brother and his friends were able to flip that puppy open and read as much as they wanted as kids. As a matter of fact, I know they did. Most days I spend being tortured by my brother and his friends and most things they teased me about came from my diary.
Reading it now brings back so many memories. I thought my world was going to end when I was in elementary school because I couldn't get one boy to like me or my mom wouldn't buy me a swatch watch like my best friend. Oh here's an entry you will love....it's called, "The Bird Killer."
May 1st, 1982
My best friend Leni LOVES birds, so does her mom. She has a beautiful, yellow parakeet that she puts on her shoulder and walks around the house with. If she really wants to show off, she would vacuums her room with the yellow parakeet on her shoulder....all the kids on the block think thats so cool.
Leni and her family are going camping, they want me to watch the birds....the birds actually freak me out. She's my bestie, so I have to do it...ycuky!

Dear Diary, I
I walked into to Leni's house and her yellow parakeet is dead! Dead! I didn't do anything, I swear diary!! My mom says it just happens sometimes. What will I tell Leni?
May 10th, 1982
Leni came home today and called me a bird killer!! The entire school will think I'm a bird killer diary, how horrible!! I hope Steve Eide doesn't. Maybe he will still ask me out.
I was playing ball with my grandson yesterday...not a bad player for age 4 if I do say so myself. He hit one over our back fence into the neighbors yard!!...I knew they were off to work so I thought I'll just climb that baby and get the ball myself. The brown beast ,as I call it ,is about 6 ft. tall. I started over and as I swung one leg over, the other one slipped and I landed right on top !..yes with the top of the fence right between the legs!!... It felt like a pulse of electricity went through me. Guys you know what I mean..I screamed like a girl..yes right in front of my grandson. No I did not swear...but..I think he laughed!...can't blame him
Played alot of basketball in high scholl and college..but it's been a while. On Wednesday Southwest airlines held this Hot shot competition at Sky Line Park. It benefited 9 charties as we shot basketballs to make points. Who made the most shots in 90 seconds...well guess who won!...Yes I know you are shocked.. it was me. The good news I won a check for $5000 for VOA...but who still has the touch baby!!!
Sorry about the Rockies losing their home opener....however somethime it's not about the game but the party before the game!! I've been lucky enough to attend every home opener since the Rockies arrived some of the games were good some ,not so good. But the celebrating before the game is always great!!..just all the families and activities downtown is worth the trip even if you don't have tickets for the game. There is a strong feeling that opening day should be made a national day off..what do you think??
