Letter From The Publisher – May 2007

Your Mom!

These young mothers today are amazing! A good example is Shannon Coates, our Editor In Chief, has her five-yearold daughter Madison in ballet, soccer, swim class, and she will start her first golf lessons in June at Tuscawilla CC. When I was a young mother I was too busy trying to be me to even know who I was. My daughter and her husband have planned perfectly to get married, buy a home in the country, and have a baby, his name is Tyler and he arrives on July twelfth, I’m so excited, I can hardly wait. Oh by the way, I will be called MiMi. Not anything that sounds like Grandma, Nanny, Mee Ma, Grammy, and if any of you think you’re funny by calling me something like that… well you are not. Speaking of summer golf camps…were we? Take a look at page 24 for summer golf camps around the state. If that weren’t enough excitement this year, I went to The Masters for the first time ever. Not bragging, but I get up close and personal with the players at some of the media days and going to the tournaments we have here in Florida. There is nothing like seeing Tiger, Phil, Fred, Fuzzy and ‘The Guys” on the sacred grounds of Augusta National. I’m not sure, but I think even the crowds were a bit different, the over all feeling was simply euphoric, and I had an absolute ball.

I met people who knew the magazine sitting in the stands at Amen Corner. That was pretty cool within itself. One thing you ladies who have never ben will find amusing is the line for the men’s room– it was a mile long LOL! We ladies were just skipping in and out like giddy little girls at no other sporting event I’ve ever attended. Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! OK, enough. One more thing, check the weather… just because you have been told you have nice wheels doesn’t mean you should wear a skort when it’s bloody freezing out. We all know TPC Sawgrass will be hosting their little party this month; so let’s go up and enjoy one of the majors we can attend here in Florida.

Hope to see you there. You know who you are. Wink!
For all of you mothers out there, enjoy your day!
