An extension of his love of the game has been learning to make his own golf clubs. I was thinking about his hobby recently, and comparing it to my hobby of quilting.
There are lots of catalogs and websites with golf components to pour over. Which brand is better? Is there free shipping? What color shaft goes best with this club head? Who has the best price on grips?
Special tools and a dedicated workspace are needed. (He said to me, "Don't take a picture of this; it's messy!" Guess what I replied?!)
Last week, he made me three new clubs, sure they will make a difference in my game! Lol! I'm glad I can enable him, since he is always supportive of me when I'm in need of new fabric for a project.
And just like with our quilts, these clubs are made to be used. My pretty, shiny new clubs are full of grass, dirt, and even a few scratches now that I have used them a couple of times.
I love them because Mike made them for me, and who knows? Maybe they really will make a difference in my game! :)
I know this has been another tough and confusing week for many, and a hard one to find things to celebrate. Let's celebrate the people we love, and who love us. That always helps me.
I'll be heading over to Not Afraid of Color to see what my I Like Thursday friends have been up to.
