It comes around once a year, but the trash talking starts long before that.  In memory of their brother, they gather together for a weekend of golf with the family.

The last instructions are given and they are ready to go…

They give all their excuses as to what may have messed with their golf game, be it new knees, hips, no time to practice…

Some try everything they can to help their golf game, or maybe they are just lazy?

And other unfortunate souls spend some time looking for that dang ball.

Back at the house the young and the young at heart wait patiently for everyone to come back safely.

The time together is treasured by all and it is definitely not without some laughter.  Lives are busy and homes are far apart, but to be together for a short weekend means the world.  It is always fun to go home with more memories of time together and of course for one special individual…
