1. We got our tree last night. Mmm, the smell. 2. We mixed and jarred up our southwestern seasoning/rub for distribution to friends and, well, that's another awesome smell in the joint. 3. The new golf year is starting and that means the Orlando equipment show is near at hand, so Santa is occasionally dropping gear on my front porch for me to hit and batter and demo ... and then I send it along to the First Tee, Special Olympics golf and/or the local h.s. teams. 4. We live in a small town where people wave and smile and we're getting more waves and smiles given ... the time of year it is. 5. Saturday golf is set then we're having friends over for dinner, and then the family starts rolling in on Tuesday. 6. Finally, our Heisman winner is a student, a volunteer, a team-player and a truly nice human being ... he's no Boyziel or Heinous Jameis. Now on the the Natty!!
