September 2012—

in the past and defi nitely wanted to move somewhere where “the only thing being shoveled was sunshine.” I can relate. They were snowbirds for a few years but eventually decided to sell their home in Michigan and move to Sun Lakes full-time. Since the next door neighbor ended up purchasing their home in Michigan, it led them to believe that some things are meant to be. Wilma started her golf career playing

with her father’s old golf clubs. This was a big challenge for her because her father was well over six feet tall. Looking back she wishes that she would have gotten her clubs and taken lessons while still in Michigan. Since that is not what happened she quickly made up for it, buying herself a set of clubs and taking lessons here in AZ. Wilma is quick to point out that her fi rst

round of golf as an 18-hole club member was with another member of the “over 80 club,” Pearl Martin. Pearl showed her the

ropes and Audrey Rich familiarized her with the SLLGA and AWGA rules. She had a great time but later started meeting other golfers and decided to join the 9’ers. Now she is back where she always belonged, as a well-traveled 18-hole member. In closing, Wilma said that each time she

and Mike returned to visit their children in Michigan they always took along their golf clubs to get in a few rounds with their son- in-law. She is proud to say that her youngest daughter has taken up the game of golf and she hopes that all of her children soon do the same. It is a great way to exercise, blow off a bit of steam, meet new friends and enjoy the great outdoor lifestyle that everyone enjoys so much in Arizona. Thanks so much Wilma for sharing your

Tuesdays with me and I apologize again for anything that I might have said, shouted or cursed while in your company. You have been a lady throughout. 

we took extra care to strike the ball just right. Some of the time we were successful and some of the time not! Our greens are truly challenging; we all have experienced this phenomenon. The overall winner was Jackie Reeve with 26 putts.

In fl ight two,

Marion Olsherski 27 and in fl ight three Janet Baron with 29. We hope you can hear us William Havilland Carrier! A grateful thank you for your inventive skills that enabled you to develop the air conditioner on July 17, 1902. We recognized your brilliant, superb, skillful and profi cient method of cooling and controlling indoor climate, your use of humidity altered the atmosphere and made it possible for all of us to endure the intense heat we experience in Arizona. We also thank your three wives. They never ceased to constantly remind (nag) you of the manner in which the “unbearable indoor temperatures affected their daily survival,” no doubt they spurred you on! The next play of the day on July 24 was

a test to see how honest we were when subtracting our age from our fi nal score. The great Lucille Ball once said, “The secret of staying young is to live honestly, eat slowly and lie about your age.” I would add only one thing to Lucille’s wisdom: the secret

to staying young is to stay young in heart! The winners of the Gross-Age tournament in fl ight one were Sandy Patton-Joseph with a score of 2, Rose Hames 8 and Jan Hawkes 14. In fl ight two, Ann Hammond -2, Maxine Mealy 0 and Carolyn Hoffl and 1. In fl ight three, Thelma Rolants 2, Jackie Reeves 4 and June Park 5. On July 31 our pro chose the holes we

were to include in our score. The pro’s choice game was won by Rose Hames, Donna Purcell and Maxine Mealey. In fl ight two, Susan Lamb, Marion Olshefski and Jan Stuckey were respectively winners. The fl ight three winners were Lois Fitsimmons, Thelma Roelants and Camille Jaslen. My fi nal thoughts for the month of

July. Each month of the year has its own distinctive features. The July sun continued to stretch across the summer sky, at times the sky was so clear we could see into the heavens. The monsoons caused strong winds to swirl around us. As a result of our lack of rainfall, we experienced more dust storms than normal. We wished for rain even though it dampens our spirits! Last but not least, we refused to permit the intense heat to interfere with our golfi ng. Swing away! 
