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!
Braxton Paul PDGA # 95,797 is my second Grandchild, here he is at one month, the plan it to take a picture with him & the numbered disc that is the same month as he is, that is a 1-9 if you use the 6 upside-down! I gave the little boy the set for a keepsake. Looking forward to getting him on the course soon!
My daughter invited me along on a service trip to Honduras over spring break. It was a group called Soles for souls, we gave away shoes in many different towns, After they got the shoes we also passed out a toothbrush & a few fun treats, as you can see I brought about 300 minis along with some 100 mold catch discs, crazy thing was the young kids did not know what to do with a disc, they needed a demonstration! No problem, I had a ton of fun playing catch with many kids from all over, my lack of Spanish was not a problem, throwing the disc needs no words, I had a few foot bags too & you guessed it, very popular. I recommend everyone see the world with some of our less fortunate neighbors, when you do, take along some plastic!
World Freestyle Champ Skippy Jammer myself and NOR-CAL legend Mr.Neal, had a great day sharing flying disc stories, looking at plastic & even getting in a round! It was a great day! Just about the time I think I have seen it or at least heard of it all, there is always something new ! Get out there, buy, sell, trade & throw!
Back when I first started collecting I had no real focus, mainly golf discs. When Victor's book came out it gave me things to shoot for. I found his price guide very helpful. My new idea for this site is to add a value to discs with a value of $20 or more. The prices that I list will be value in my opinion & I hope people contact me to give their values as well.
