EXTRA! EXTRA! 8-30-23

I’m writing this extra post because I didn’t want this event to get swallowed up in the shop tour.

Yesterday Becky shot a hole in one while playing golf with her friend Jenee! How many 70 year olds do you know who can say that?

Rick equates this extraordinary feat to a grand slam in baseball!

Our mom would be so thrilled for Becky as am I.

Well done!

    Way to go Becky!! I know your unbelievable excitement as I also shot a hole in one at the Garland Golf Resort in Lewiston, Mi.
    CONGRATULATIONS!!!! Well done!!

    WOW, what a feat! Congratulations to you Becky, you’ve got girl power! Keep celebrating!

    Congratulations Becky! Looks like great weather to be on the golf course too.

    Very often I watch professional golf on tv and only once have I seen someone hit a hole-in-one. This is on a course they have been practicing on for an entire week.

  6. Jenee

    So glad I got to witness that! We were both so excited we could hardly finish the round! Congratulations Becky!

  7. Susan K in Texas

    Woohoo Becky! Not many golfers ever get a hole in one. It’s quite the accomplishment!

  8. Sandy in Eastern Washington

    Becky joins an elite group of golfers. Congrats to her and thanks for letting us join the celebration!

  9. Kris in WI

    Way to go, Becky! Way to go!
    (Chant it like cheerleaders do!)

    Nice note, Mary. All we need now is nachos and a favorite drink on the screened in porch!

  10. Kathy in western NY

    Holy Moly that IS quite a feat. I bet Becky was on cloud 9 as she deserves to be.

  11. Sara in Indiana

    The only hole-in-one that I ever got was playing Putt-Putt golf—haha! Congratulations to Becky!

    BIG fete for BECKY,
    Lake Coeur d’Alene, Idaho has an Island that is one hole of the golf course. Players get two tries to get their ball onto it…my youngest son did just that last week. Best part is they have a boat that takes the players to finish their put!!

  13. Jo in Wyoming

    Way to go Becky…that deserves pizza and beer with your favorite sister!!

  14. Marian

    Congratulations Becky. Nice that you recorded the hole in one ☝️ A very momentous occasion ⛳️

  15. Brenda in N Calif

    Amazing feat! Congratulations Becky. They are hard to come by.
    And Mary what a great sister you are. Giving her the blog by itself so we don’t miss this exciting news was very thoughtful.

  16. Jeanne in Co.

    Wow Becky, that’s a fantastic event at any age. I agree with the other gals….a grand slam isn’t nearly as awesome. I’ve never golfed, so I’m not looking for a hole in one, but it has to be on the same level as an Oscar or an Emmy, (or a “Best of Show” in a quilt show). Congratulations, Becky. I wish you many more in the future.

    Congratulations, Becky! Great accomplishment! You are in the winners circle as so many can only hope and dream, and keep trying! Congrats!

      Becky, I just checked online to see what the odds of a regular golfer getting a hole in one. Are you ready for the answer?? Drum roll, please….. it is 12,500 to 1. Of course for the pros, who are on the links every day, the ratio is not quite as high. But it is still an amazing accomplishment, even for them.
      Enjoy and celebrate.
      Mary, have you ever golfed? Your talents in quilting and book writing, are like a hole in one in artistic accomplishments. My “Hole in One” is on the rare occasion when I can thread the needle on the first try. The odds of that happening are very low, and getting worse every day.

    Congratulations, Becky! Great accomplishment! You are in the winners circle as so many can only hope and dream, and keep trying! Congrats!🎈🍾 🍷

    Congratulations, Becky. That is very exciting!
    I’ve never had one, but can hope. I’m very happy for you. Have that ball mounted.

  20. Diane, Squeak, and Buddy in Central Ohio

    Way to go, Becky! I am lucky if I get it in the hole in 10 strokes. Of course, the grandkids loved that b/c they could always beat me! I looked and looked at all the pet and quilt photos the last few days. What fun:)
    Mary, we are kindred spirits as fas as keeping a sewing room clean. I cannot blame Squeak and Buddy b/c they go right to their quilt in the window and sit down. I jsut get caught up in the work and then have to stop to clean!!

  21. Jeanine from Iowa

    I don’t know much about golf, but I do know that a hole in one is very rare! You go, girl! Great job!

  22. NancyTD

    Becky—congratulations to you! Lots of golfers try their whole life to get one!
    Celebrate your great day!

  23. Peggy S

    Fantastic shot, Becky! Congratulations!
    My golfing husband got his hole-in-one on My birthday in 2007 when he was 72 years old!

  25. Elizabeth

    Congratulations Becky!! I got my 1st hole in one this year on my 60th birthday! It is way bigger than a grand slam!!

  26. Diane in Maryland

    Congratulations, Becky!! There aren’t many golfers of any age who can say that! So happy for you!!

  27. Jane Velander

    Congratulations to Becky! I think a grand slam in baseball is easier than a hole in one!

  28. Rita in Iow

    Becky you are assume! I am 70 and know I couldn’t do that. Keep swinging girl!

  29. Angie from Baltimore
