I’m feeling a little less than thrilled today. I’ve procrastinated enough, today I have my tax returns prepared and the process always depresses me. I feel like what I give to Raleigh and Washington could and should be better spent.
High drama Sunday. Like every other year, I became engrossed in watching The Masters. It was good stuff !
While on the subject of Golf, I’m excited about the changes coming to Brushy Mountain Golf Club. It’s my home away from home and one of the best courses in the area.
Seven more acts went into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Friday. Joan Baez, Peal Jam, Tupac Shakur, Yes, Electric Light Orchestra, and Journey. It was rumored that Steve Perry was going to perform with Journey at the ceremony but it never happened. He was there but he didn’t sing. I’ve got to get to Cleveland and visit the Hall, it’s on my Bucket list
