Well after having kidney cancer & then 5 mystery spots on my lungs removed it was good to find out that the spots were not cancer! That makes me 16 months cancer free! if I can get 16 more months with no cancer popups I got a good chance of putting this behind me, It is a strange spot to be in, ( having cancer ) I can not describe what it is like, it gives a different perspictive to say the least! I plan on thinning the herd & donating the money from sales to cancer research, to many people are affected, got to do something to help, There is nothing better than being on the course with family & loved ones!
Braxton is 7 months old now! Getting to be a big kid! It is time for him & I to head out & play disc on the upper course at Skyline ! The problem is that during the wine country fires Cal-Fire set a back fire on the course, about 4 holes were effected. There was some bull dozer work as well, so the club is working to get the course back open & have it safe for everyone, Soon me & my youngest grandchild will be out during the best time of year in California to play disc, Winter!
It is always fun to meet folks with a lower PDGA number than your self! I went to Cabo on a guys fishing trip & invited Lightnin Lyle Jensen # 102, I had some other Disc Golf friends on the trip. When I made Contact with Sheryl Newland # 76 on Facebook finding out she was near by, I invited her over for breakfast. It was fun to tell Lyle we were going to have a guest over that had a lower number than himself! He was thinking " in Mexico ? "
On vacation in the south of France at a flea market I came across this, all I can guess is that this toy maker was trying to use the Frisbee name to sell some product. I passed out many of my mini business cards to folks I came across, many did not speak english but they know the word Frisbee & what it is, next trip in Europe I got to play some disc sports!
Love the challenge of playing disc sports, My other thing is playing with my band Mid-Life Krysis! We are even working on original stuff to go with the 60 cover songs we know! Medical update is so far I have 2 opinions, 1 is to wait & let the spots in my lungs ( 2 ) grow & biopsy them when they get big enough, 2 take these spots out now, tomorrow I meet with the surgeon & the day after I see a 3rd specialist, to in my mind break the tie & move forward. Now I am going to work on a new song!
Most people don't know I had a growth on my kidney, had that removed last October, just found out I got something growing in my lungs! Could be a few spots, once they get big enough they will biopsey it to see what it is then start treatment, My kidney cancer was made up mostly of a aggressive form of cancer & if that is whats in my lungs there is very little they can do. So bucket list time, but I must say it is the simple things, I played Orangevale yesterday with my 2 grandsons, Braxton 4 months & Kayden 2 years, my son Curtis, my nephews Jake & Austin their dad Shannon & 2 dogs, It was a very good feeling to drive up to long #12 & make my 25 foot putt, guessing the hole at about 370 feet. Birdied my last hole to beat my son by 1 & everyone else too! Lunch picnic style at the river with some swimming makes for a great day, Enjoy the game, Hope to see some of my frisbee family when I travel to the cancer institute in Cleveland in a few weeks!
When it comes to competition I am never sure who will show up. The guy that makes no mistakes or the guy that gets no breaks. If you have played Sierra College you know it can be tuff, we played 3 rounds of 21 holes, each round the course got longer! Who showed up was the non confident putter, my first round was ok but after that it was down hill, thing is I do not need to be in the money & play my best to have a good time. I made new friends, we had a great time, I did have a few high lights. I played with my cousin Shawn in the first round & he saw me get a ACE! Last round of the event I heard shouting & I knew it was Shawn! Yes indeed he got a ace as well, here we are after the event ended. My other memorable moment was getting a birdy on the long number 7, up hill 777 feet par 5, had a knee knocker 18 foot putt for my 4! If you have never played a course around Lake Tahoe you are missing out, put it on your bucket list!
