The Emily Basher Tournament will be held on August 20 and August 27. Each person will be given an official card with her handicap. On the first week of play, a fellow competitor will compute her score. Score cards will be handed in after play and will be returned to each player next week. Now the good part is that on the second week of play you can try to improve your score on each hole. For example, if you had a four on hole #3 the first week and scored a 3 the following week, then the 3 will be your finishing score for that hole. In order to equalize the competition everyone must hit off the mat or tee. Good luck to all participants!

Congratulations to Tess and Tom Kearney as they celebrate their 73rd wedding anniversary on August 9. Best wishes for many more years of good health and happiness.

Arthur is 90 years old. He's played golf every day since his retirement 25 years ago. One day he arrives home looking downcast. "That's it," he tells his wife. "I'm giving up golf. My eyesight has gotten so bad ... once I've hit the ball, I can't see where it went." His wife sympathizes. As they sit down, she has a suggestion. "Why don't you take my brother with you and give it one more try."

"That's no good," sighs Arthur. "Your brother is a hundred and three. He can't help." "He may be a hundred and three," says the wife, "but his eyesight is perfect.

So the next day, Arthur heads to the golf course with his brother-in-law. He tees up, takes an almighty swing … and squints down the fairway. He turns to his brother-in-law. "Did you see the ball?"

"Of course I did," says the brother-inlaw. "I have perfect eyesight." "Where did it go?" asks Arthur. "Can't remember," his brother says.

God Bless!! Have a great week!!
