  • Reasons to be thankful for golf

    There are many things for which I am thankful. Let me just touch on the highlights of what’s good in my life.   

    I’m grateful for my husband, Gene, whom I met on a blind date my freshman year at Syracuse University. For years he has put up with me, proofread even my most boring articles and unsold novels, suggested dinner out when he knew I was tired and given me hugs at the exact time I needed them.
