Two weeks ago, the Monterey Peninsula, where Linda and I live, hosted the AT&T golf tournament. The event was won by Phil Mickelson, for the fifth time! I guess he likes it here. Besides its stunning links courses, the tournament is known for its wild and unpredictable weather. February is smack in the middle of the rainy season. Well, neither the tournament nor the weather disappointed, with the match tied and called for darkness and a playoff held Monday morning between Phil and England’s Paul Casey. Conditions were marked by wind, rain and hail! However on both the final day, a Sunday, and at the Monday playoff bright sun prevailed.

Rather than bloviate on the daily dirge of depressing events out there in the REAL world, whatever that is these days, I’d like to reprise a short story I published several months ago and that some of you may have missed: ‘Wanda and the Winged Sea Serpent’. I hope you enjoy it!
