Eric,
Your golf story is so funny!!! I can relate, after "taking lessons" from Tim!

I have fond memories of many times spent with Lisa and her family when we were kids. My favorite are of the two road trips with Uncle Lester, Aunt Isabel, Priscilla and Lisa. The five of us in their '56 ('57?) Chevy driving to Minnesota to visit our Grandparents' farm. We had so much fun milking cows, running through "cowpies", riding in the hay wagon with Uncle Kenneth, going to the outhouse in the middle of the night, picking rhubarb for Grandma's homemade pie, etc.! This city girl has never forgotten those trips. Or camping in Carpenteria, or just spending time at their home in Tujunga.

Lisa was taken much too soon. I had hoped to go to Washington to see her, and regret not doing so. My heartfelt sympathy goes out to you, Eric, as well as her entire family.

Golf Class

It was before we were engaged that we decided to take a golf class together.
Fun, get to know each other better, right?

I lettered in golf, so that first class I was helping Lisa by coaching her on grip, stance, and so on. (Nice to have your arms around a cute girl!)
She didn't see it as helpful; she thought I was being condescending. She got madder and madder at me for my "help", all the while holding in her anger.
By the time she stepped up to the ball to make a shot, she was furious.
Her grip and stance were perfect, and she put all her fury into the swing, which was also perfect.
The ball went a good, straight 250 yards, and the coach thought he had a new prodigy!

We never went golfing together again.
