Like I said in the beginning!

“The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the presidency. It will be easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails us. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president.”

In November, you will never in this life time, again, have the opportunity to take America back!

Brother in Law Joe showed us how to take an Iron shot with his putter from over 100 feet from the green.

I have to credit Wii Golf for my improved short game.

Sandi's a Natural Athlete.  I get beat up when we play any sports or even Wii anything.

Joe and Sandi discuss a 235yrd driver shot!

                                 Sandi's Driving was a bit off this time.  We have agreed to go to the  driving range at least once a week.

       Sandi, Taylor and I, Lauren, Matt and Criss drove to Phoenix this past weekend. Steve couldn't make it as he had just flew in from Afghanistan after four months of Hell. (it gets twice as hot as LV and Phoenix).   It was good to get away for me.  We had several functions to attend.  The best part was I was able to rest and get in a couple of holes of golf.  Joe, Sandi's sisters husband met us at the course were we got in nine holes.  Joe had to go and Sandi and I played another round.  I must admit the Wii Golf has upped my game a bit.  It was hot and muggy but a fun and quick trip.  Taylor was the only one that swam at Grannys.  I was just too pooped out to do much more than relax and take in the rest.  I must purchase a Ping hat now that I'm going out every week and play a round.   Its was discouraging to have to take 2 hours from the Arizona side of the Hoover Dam to the Nevada side Security check posts.  It's the longest 7 miles I have ever driven.  I was also dismayed at the lake Mead water level... Having grown up in Las Vegas I have watched the water level drop drastically for the past 20 years.  Shockingly, I also was caught off guard when I saw the infamous "Batching Plant" that I had grown up hearing about at the foot of what used to be small islands off the beach that now look like Mountains due to the water level.  We used to be afraid to SCUBA dive to the plant it was down so deep.  You could actually see the old cement truck sitting next to it dry as a desert bed.  I'll try and get pictures.  The fly over at Hoover Dam is almost finished.  It's beautiful but a little late.  If the water level gets any lower you'll be able to just walk across the Colorado river on stones.
