Coffee Spills

What I hear and see and think about at the coffee shops I patronize.
Brisk. Fresh. Well-balanced. Occasional nutty and bittersweet overtones.

All I have left is golf

Two guys, one tall and one short, grabbed each others arms with warm hand shakes at Panera's last Friday. Apparently, they were both former athletes, one basketball, the other baseball. Probably not pros, but maybe college. Probably late 50s. They started talking about knee replacements. The shorter of the two had already had two knee replacements, the tall guy said he was afraid it would be soon for him.

The shorter guy said, "All I have left is golf."

    Confirms what I have often professed. Golf is a sport that can be played as long as you can swing a club. I once played with a blind man. I'm 68 and I'm playing better than when I was in high school. Gonna shoot my age one day! I've been as close as 6 strokes.
