NFJG Amelia National Tournament 11/12/16 AND Ford's Birthday!

Ford was a Daddy-Caddie for his birthday weekend at a two-day tournament (Amelia National). AA did well on the first day with the Foundation Boys, a 48 to be in the lead. On day 2, she scored two strokes higher, but kept the lead for a first place finish. Good job!! She has a nasty cough but it didn't slow her down (cough is from her allergies, her lungs are clear).
We waited and celebrated Ford's birthday on Sunday evening, after the tournament was over. Carolyn drove over after work, and we enjoyed wine, bruschetta and shrimp scampi (with capers) - and in that order! A great weekend!
These photos are from the NFJG Facebook page (since I can't go, we have very few pictures).

 Great photo of them walking in stride:

Scores Day 1:
The winner!
From Director Jack's Newsletter: If you played in “The National Challenge” this past weekend at Amelia National Golf and Country Club then you found out what a beautiful venue the National is. Eighteen Championship holes designed by renowned course designer Tom Fazio which required and demands constant attention on any given normal weather day. Throw in some strong steady winds, with gusts to 25 miles per hour, a chill in the air and you’re in for a long day if you’re not prepared and don’t have a knockdown game. At Amelia the wind seems to come at you from all directions, swirling at will, but what a great test for our talented junior players. 
Our Foundation Division would once again find the Boys and the Girls battling it out for the right to become Champion and this week day one would find Alyzabeth Morgan atop the leaderboard by six strokes over Anderson Palm and Cole Taylor.

At the start of round two Morgan would continue to dominate with her steady play, but Anderson was pushing the envelope to catch the leader, but in the end would come up a few short. In this winner take all battle ground Morgan would take home the lone trophy with bragging rights for the runner up spot going to Anderson.

Celebrating (very low key) Ford's 65th!
Have to mention that I tried the new pre-measured Crisco solid shortening and it is great! Way too expensive to buy all the time but what a convenience and no greasy mess!
I made six pie crusts (used two for the apple pie). Since I had the day free (watching the mutt!) and not working, I have time to plan ahead a little better. Pioneer Woman has my favorite crust recipe and directions on freezing extra, so made enough for Thanksgiving too!
Finished apple pie with Maine apples!
Bruschetta with my homemade pesto (my basil plant is huge this year!):

Carolyn came for dinner!
Happy Birthday to Ford!! From Facebook: Happy - Happy Birthday to my Wonderful Husband! He is out doing what he loves - being the "Daddy Caddie" for Alyzabeth today! No big celebration this year even though this one ends with a "5" (instead, we may celebrate my last year in my 50's in Key West with Pam Davis - who knows!). On Thursday, Ford had his first official bike ride with Werner (Catherine Hollaway), just three days shy of his four month anniversary of quadruple-bypass open heart surgery! Love this man!!
