I worked the 3p to 3a shift at the ER and drove back 3.5 hours, took The Puti to her first “REAL” competitive golf round for the varsity team, she was the #6, out of 6. She’s done. She’s the only girl on the team.

We then went to the clubhouse and had lunch. I’m exhausted. Well, she lost by one stroke. Lost by 1 against a Junior male…this Freshman Girl of 14 with 6 months experience damn near beat a guy two years older and much bigger. The Puti blew it on the approach chip to the 9th and final hole. She went way too quick, her nerves got her. She hit it way thin and sent it through the green. Nice shot back to the hole and 2 put. A nice recovery given the circumstances.

The team won the match, and they voted her ‘man of the match’ for her surprising and effective performance in her first real round. She was dejected until her coach told her that that was one of the best rounds that he has ever seen from a Freshman…on the boys varsity team. THen, the smile, ear to ear.

She did well, earned a steak dinner at the CC, and just got her braces off. It;s been a good few days.

Finally, i got sent away from the endless level 1 trauma big city loop to one of our wayyyyyyy out there hospitals.

9 months of pressure cooker work ended. Sent to a smaller hospital. The Hotel is AMAZING!

I stay at many hotels, it’s part of the job. But, this one feels great. Its the Genetti in Williamsport, PA. It’s oldschool.
Old and unabashedly not updated, I got good vibes when I walked in…1920’s charm with a great bar. This is not a cut and paste room like i’m used to.

My Mom’s family owns property just north of here in the Pine Creek river valley, but, its just a touch too far away to stay there. If i stayed there, I’d call off to go fly fishing for native brooks on Callahan’s run and have a few beers in the Wagon Wheel in Camal PA. Easier to stay away.

Well, we are in the ‘big city’ lol in north central PA…quaint, actually. I did find two excellent breweries and one decent cigar shop. And, I found a proper tailor and men’s outfitter. I am getting measured for a barbour jacket tomorrow. Possum and AI know what those are. my last barbour was over 20 years ago (in Scotland) and it is getting threadbare in the usual places. i have abused the snot out of it whilst doing the normal scheduled maintenance. I’ll hand it to one of the girls and it will be worn, in an ironic way, and with style….or something….teens.

the fun part is that i have a ton of points with this hotel brand and got a nice upgrade. yep –> 10th floor
