When I was cleaning out my aunt's house after her death, I came across a box of letters she had received from my uncle and also written to him during their courting! Many of the envelopes had little "love" messages on them!! Sooooo sweet :-))) They were married in 1933 and shared a special love until my uncle died in 2000. (PS They first met at age 3 when both sets of grandparents bought homes next door to one another!!.....and to top it off......my mom and aunt were sisters AND my dad and uncle were brothers!!!)
Actually, I love the "chocolate capitol" of the UK distinction best!
Yes......so much has been lost with the advent of email. And the way things look, we may be in for even more loss with the USPS facing tough choices! Our whole mode of communication has changed so.....I miss getting letters and cards and I must confess, I'm guilty too!!.....but I love the ease of paying bills on-line!
Oh yes.....golf is "ageless"!! Prior to moving here from Vermont, I was amazed to learn the "young fellow" playing in the group ahead of me was 93 years young......walking the course......and shooting less than his age!! Here in The Villages it is reported in the newspaper once a week those who match or beat their age......LOVE IT!!
PS.....it is a long list too!!
Thankls for posting about Allen Doyle. I was wondering what happened to him. I watched him many times on champion tour. Kinda a home made swing that no one would teach today; but wow, what a great wedge game, putter, and strong competitor. I also remember the story about him donating the $1M annuity ( year long points race on Champion Tour) tro charity. It was a very inspiring story.
