Carl and I have been playing Great Oaks Country Club for more than twenty years now. We have had some really wonderful/memorable days there. But, none of them compared to this day.

The word perfect, comes about as close to describing this Labor Day as anything I could ever write. But, I will try my best.

Labor Day, this year was the best of the best of the best that either of us can remember. The weather was picturesque for a day by the pool. People were not worried about going back to work. They all seemed relaxed and happy-go-lucky.

We set up in our usual corner by the pool, under our new canopy, right next to the grille.

Nice . . .

The sights, the smells, the music . . .

On this day, each and every element was perfect! Nothing that we could ever do would derail these people from having a wonderful time.

While we did have several members approach us to let us know how much they enjoyed the music, I thought that it was evident that all of the playing we had done recently was making us even tighter, both vocally and musically.

One member was having such a great time that he agreed to sponsor us to stay another hour, until five o’clock!

That is the ultimate tribute to our effort, I must say.

All in all, it was an amazing day by the pool. One that will be to forgotten for a long, long time. On this particular Labor Day, it was not just great, but maybe the greatest oak of all time!
