me at the us open


thanks for taking this photo ian



unfortunately this may be as close to it as I will get. & now that it is almost here it's hard not to get excited about it. earlier friday afternoon state troopers had this road overlooking the course completely blocked off. I imagined tiger woods taking his practice shots as I waited in traffic with the rubberneckers. last evening my son & I rode our bicycles down this same road to take a nice long look over the golf course before the onslaught of fans descend upon the town. starting monday the u.s. open begins and many roads in the surrounding area will be closed, including this one. I like watching golf every so often but my brother loves it so much he has taken time off from his job to volunteer as a marshall. I think that is pretty cool. I can't wait to hear his stories.

What a nice picture. Now I can put a face with your blog posts.
I am not particularly interested in golf, but I know what a big deal this is for L.I. One of my daughters still lives there, and she did work the open one year a while back. I can't recall now in what capacity.

aw, great picture!

Every time I watch Tiger on TV I think he gets nervous and doesn't win. I've never seen him win, but I've heard he's great ;-)

On an odd day I'll tune into golf but in general I don't have the golf bug. Hope your brother comes away with a bunch of great stories!

It's so nice to finally see what you look like!

I'm not into golf at all, except for the miniature kind. :-)

thanks for everyone's kind comments about my picture. I don't normally pose for pictures in my bike helmet (LOL)!
