I’m Tired of This Constant Rain

When you play golf, rain is not your friend. When you live in coastal Delaware and it’s winter, rain is definitely not your friend . And, when it seems to have rained almost daily this winter, you’re ready to go crazy (if you haven’t already!)

At Least I Beat Jordan
