Hold Tight!

So yesterday I went golfing. I didn’t actually golf, but rather picked up The Bell Jar for like the third time. Each time I read it I enjoy it more than the last. Anyways, I took some photos in true blogger fashion (actually I had the Photographer take most of them for me).

 The Other Sister took this picture of me in the golf cart (before she made me drive). She and I joked that I should have a segment on my blog called ‘Things My Sister Made Me Do’. We’d take a picture of me reading a book at different locations that sister encouraged (made) me go to.

 I sent the Photographer off to take some photos while I sat and read in the golf cart. I thought this one of Lil’ Ruffneck and Jamie Starr was too cute.

 Isn’t the golf course gorgeous? I didn’t realize until I saw this picture. The Bell Jar is hard to put down.

 A little background: I can’t drive. I never learned and never cared to. Now that I’ve moved in with the Other Sister and her family, driving is a necessity. I’m learning, but frankly, I suck. My sister made me drive one of the carts with the Photographer in tow. I only got lost  once. A few branches may have gotten in my way, but we made it out alive. In this picture, I’m actually driving on the road.

 The Photographer snapped this candid of me watching the golf game progress.

 Another shot of Jamie Starr with Lil’ Ruffneck.

 The Photographer was excited to find paw prints in the sand.
 The Other Sister in her golf cart, staring pensively off into the distance (or watching her kid… whatever).

I had ‘Hold Tight’ stuck in my head the whole time. It was quite fitting considering my less than satisfactory driving skills. The song was written by Fats Waller and sang most famously by the Andrews Sisters.

That was longer than I expected, and I pity any person who didn’t skim through it.
