It's Not All About Shopping!

Okay, "Girls Who Shop and Girls Who Golf" ~ while we do LOVE to Shop and some of us also love to Golf, we all know the basic concept of truly being grateful for each day of life we are given and each breath we take! In my golf readings this past week, I ran across some articles on an amazing man. (The best one was from the magazine "Executive Golfer".) His name is Jon Huntsman. His family includes his wife, 9 children and 56 grandchildren! He has written some marvelous books; including Winners Never Cheat and one subtitled Everyday Values We Learned as Children (But May Have Forgotten)!

The following are some of the best thoughts and themes that Mr. Huntsman has tried to give to people to help them live their lives by! *(Courtesy of The Publisher's Page, August 2008, Executive Golfer Magazine) These are very inspirational and yet at the same time, seem so simple! I hope each of you finds something that you can take from this little blurb and apply to your daily life ~ and encourage your children to do the same!

"Keep your word ~ Play by the Rules ~ Graciousness is next to godliness ~ Check you moral compass (often) ~ Know the obligation "To Give Back"!!

"Listening to people; paying attention to and respecting individuals no matter their particular station in life; seeking fulfillment not from a financial bottom line, but rather, from an abundant personal inventory of values that can inspire others and the world around you!"

Here's to the goodness in all of us ~ Happy Monday!

You have all heard of David Feherty ~ a former PGA tour member & now a writer and broadcaster. The following blurb was taken from one of his speeches and is sure to make you laugh! . . . . . Sorry it is rather long, but it is an excellent read!

"On the 14 years since CBS colleague Gary McCord was banned from the Masters: "They don't do comedy at the Masters. The Masters, for me, is like holding onto a really big collection of gas for a week. It's like having my buttocks surgically clenched at Augusta General Hospital on Wednesday, and surgically unclenched on Monday on the way to Hilton Head." ~ On his decision to give up his playing career in favor of a microphone: "When CBS came to me and asked me to do on-course commentary, I said, 'You know, I'm only 37, I still have hopes of [playing] a little better.' So they told me what they were going to pay me, and I said, 'You want to buy a set of clubs?' ~ On giving up alcohol: "I didn't quit drinking because I was a bad drunk. I quit because I was a spectacular drunk. It got to be like a video game, where you get to the highest level and it's not even a challenge." ~ On McCord's recent revelation, at the annual JCC Sports Awards banquet in Vancouver, that Tiger Woods' caddy Steve Williams and Feherty often try to outdo one another on the course in the area of flatulence, Feherty said: "Tiger is no slouch himself: "He can lay 'em down like a crop duster." On Gary Player's unsubstantiated suggestion last year about use of performance-enhancing drugs in pro golf: "Gary thinks he invented fitness because he used to do pushups on the airplane. He's just upset because you can't win a major any more with a low, flat hook and a Napoleon complex." ~ On the poor life advice Michelle Wie's parents have given the teenage phenom: "She could be adopted by Britney Spears and be better off. I want my 16-year-old daughter to have an enormous phone bill, a case of the giggles and to be pissed off at me for killing her first three boyfriends. I do not want her out on Tour under that kind of pressure." ~ On Phil Mickelson: >> "Phil is brilliant, but he's nuts. There's something not quite right about that boy. Phil is watching a movie that only Phil can see. His mother told me: "Phil was so clumsy as a little boy, we had to put a football helmet on him until he was four because he kept bumping into things.' I told her, 'Mary, Mary, I 'm a writer, you can't keep handing me material like this!!!' ~ So the next time I saw Phil I said, 'You didn't really wear a football helmet in the house until you were four, did you?' He said, 'It was more like five.' ~ On Tiger Woods: The first time he ever watched Woods play, Feherty examined the lie Tiger had in the trees, where he'd hit the ball into deep rough alongside a large root, and said on-air that the only available play was to wedge out sideways ~ Tiger promptly hit a towering 200-plus-yard, sweeping slice with a 2-iron that rolled to within 12 feet of the flag. "I just stood there watching him walk past," Feherty said, "and thinking, I don't know what that is, but I know there weren't two of them on Noah's Ark."
