Ah, the old phrases my elders used to use. “Mind your own beeswax,” “Stop being so nosey,” and “Mind your own P’s and Q’s” was often heard. One of my grandfathers used to always say to me, “Just between you, me and the fence post.” Oddly enough, often there was a fence post close by. [...]
At The Driving Rangeon
Lately, I've started to swing the golf clubs again after a few years away from it. Not really ready to play on the big courses again. I've been spending some time playing at a little low key 9 hole course down the road and up the road, I've been practicing at a nice place with [...]

Missing the fall colors, we decided to take a 3 hour drive north to Ashland, Oregon and visit a favorite place, Lithia Park. Tomorrow we will go another 30 minutes north into Grants Pass, Oregon in search of [...]
