Not surprisingly, my thoughts this week have been on friends. Life long, stand-by-you kind, even when-you-are-an-idiot kind (as is bound to happen now and then).

And you may remember there is only one sport I watch, and enjoy, – golf. Even though I hail from a true Canadian hockey family.

Well this was a double treat kind of Sunday – friends and golf in a tie play off.

Kind of warms the heart.

Scottie Scheffler won my loyalty when he won this year’s Masters and the Green Jacket.

Today his number one opponent was Sam Burns in the FedEx Cup tournament.

Two best friends (for real)- who tied, and played off.

Sam Burns made the best putt of his game and won, but Scottie’s joy at his friend’s win was what made me smile.

Of course there are no real loser’s here.

So from North of 43 I wish true friendship for each of you, and if you are without, you can be your own best friend.

One is about 43 degrees latitude N. and longitude 80 W, The other almost equidistant south latitude and longitude 174 E. Two women, two minds, different personalities and experiences, choosing a life of meaning, continual growth and learning, at the same time negating ageist opinions of exactly what ‘an old lady’ should be.
