Went into the "Office" today

I use to call this place my office a while back because I spent so much time here.  Since my hernia operation and my new interest in Archery, I haven't spent as much time as I wanted to on my other hobby - golf.  During my early years in the mango and even up to a couple of years ago, I came here on almost a daily basis.  It was a great form of exercise and was an inexpensive way to get better at the sport.

I would spend a couple of hours in the morning hitting balls and working on the swing, then go over to the Tesco Food Court next door and have lunch. was golfing heaven.

Anyway, I have a golf date in a couple of weeks with my Thai friends.  We haven't gotten together for over a year because of various health, business, and personal issues.  But this time, it seems like things are going to start up again for our monthly outings and I thought it would be fun to go out and hit some balls this morning.  The last time, I went out cold without any range time and shot a pretty decent score to my surprise.

Today's session was very productive and after the first 15 minutes or so, I was hitting the ball halfway decent again.  Even got my driver to hit the ball straight!  Obviously, I didn't have the sharpness in my wedges and the putter (where games are lost or won) didn't even come out of the bag.  

But it was definitely good exercise.  Think I will start coming out a couple of times a week in addition to archery and working out at the gym.  That should keep me in really good shape for the time being.  I have to go back to Kalifornia in late December because it looks like January will be the likely target date for my heart valve repair surgery and I want to be in the best shape possible before I go into the operating room.  It will hopefully shorten the recovery period so that I can get back to the land of smiles as quickly as possible.

Anyway, its time for the free buffet. First one in a couple of months as the last was before my trip to Kalifornia in September.
