Golfing, Gardening, Biking

I've not blogged for a few days. But I have been doing things every day. Mostly golfing, gardening and biking.

With my golfing, I've not even stepped on to a golf course yet. However, I have been studying golfing a whole lot. My thinking is to begin with and focus completely on putting.

Fortunately, there are a ton of videos about putting. Nearly all the golfers who make videos have different ways to putt. What I want to come away with from watching putting videos, are things to try when I finally go out to practice putting on a real green.

Yesterday, I ordered a set of golf clubs made by Callaway. These clubs are Callaway's Strata 13-piece set [link]. My clubs are on the way! This morning my new clubs pulled out of Dallas, Texas!

Every day I visit gardening stores. There are a lot of gardening stores not too far away from my Guava Gardens apartment. Several are at big stores such as WalMart, Home Depot & Lowes. There are lots of smaller gardening stores, such as Armstrong and Hunter's Nursery.

I am able to ride my Prodeco electric bike to visit most gardening stores to do my shopping. For actual buying, I return with my cute little Honda Fit which has a ton of hauling space in the back when the rear seats are folded down.

1:30 pm - Hurt foot
Yesterday evening my left foot was hurting sooooo bad that I was thinking that I might have broken a bone in that foot. You may recall that I've been diagnosed by Kaiser as having "Osteoporosis" [low bone mass]. I am taking prescribed medication in order to prevent this disease from continuing.

Last night this pain was sooooo intense, that I had a great deal of trouble just walking to the bathroom.  Trying to fall asleep was almost impossible. But, I finally did fall asleep.

When I woke up this morning, I tentatively got up to walk around my apartment. The pain was almost gone! This morning I biked around doing my errands and had no pain at all. Just now I probed the areas of last night's pain with my fingers, and could feel nothing!

Really weird!

Garden shelf
I bought this garden display shelf from Overstock.com. Very easy to assemble, especially if using an electric screw driver. Click [here] to see this shelf.

  1. Sounds like you are going to have a beautiful patio area with all your plants and flowers. Have fun George.

  2. Golf??? oh dear.....we will NEVER hear from you again !!! lol

    My first golf lesson to you is "swing hard in case you hit it"

  3. That is a very weird pain. Probably would be wise to get that checked out. Maybe it was a one-time occurrence though. Good luck.

  4. The tip my X was always shouted at golf lessons was "follow through" he was a pretty good golfer!

  5. That's a fine looking set of clubs for that price. You'll have a grand time.

  6. Dang George you don't let any grass grow under your feet. Always trying new things. Good for you. Have fun. John

  7. Good morning, George ;)

  8. George, I have a rare Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) called Ankylosing Spondylitis (AS). Not everyone has ever heard of it. From time to time, it can affect your heel, causing pain where it makes it difficult to walk; then, it disappears, usually without any treatment. Just thought you might want to know, because even some doctors aren't familiar with AS and how it affects people. I'm praying for you, my friend. Blessings, Lynn
