2014 Whooosh recap.Hang in there OLD people.

What the hell did happen this year? Oh yeah it was a cold winter.Mind you when you refer to it with such terms as “Polar Vortex” it cant  be that bad!! I think.The indoor soccer ladies had a great year winning their div playoffs.Continued  colder than normal into march and beyond.Golf bud Joe and I went to Florida for two weeks of lotsagolf,not sweltering heat there either but on checking the temps at home it was great and actually still wore shorts for most of the time.Joe managed to share a hacking cough with me which was probably the only reason he beat me 3 out 4 times.Shortly after our return my little boy married Jennifer Johnson,lovely lady.Wild affair at city hall.Jay and I had coughs and the princess was also sick!! Which dumb old grandpa discovered later to be morning sickness.I did have to look at Parkers(big sister tee shirt )a couple of times to sink in.Did not start our golf season here until well into april and in turn blended into volunteering to coach the local rec ladies soccer.Nice visit from Tom and Mike and better halfs for a weekend.Summer sped by with golf and soccer both local and a Friday night team in London.Get to see my buddy Parker(and her parents)quite often.Early September Gail(aka the warden )and I took a quick trip to the UK to scatter Mum’s ashes alongside the old boy.Crammed a lot of site seeing into a short time and caught up with a few good friends and relatives.Unfortunately had to miss out on many more.End of October brought about one Jace Paul entering into our crazy world,luckily I and other grandparents are close enough to help out .Close enough to go home also.Parker will soon be his mentor as she  has the rest of us well trained.Pretty well brings us up to this joyous occasion formerly known as pigging out season.happy troughing to you all.
