Golf and covid19

Richard from Paraparaumu Beach

Except for my daily task of walking a dog as a volunteer, I can no longer at age, 73 because of covid 19, do the things I used to, mostly family care and music activities. Worrying and frustrating!
ANYONE FOR GOLF? I am investing my limited funds into membership of the Kapiti golf club. I may well find someone playing, but Neighbourly found a dog-needy person for me last year and I'm hoping luck will come my way again. A good golf mate would be not elderly but older, capable of playing without losing more than 4 balls per game, man or woman; living around Paraparaumu Beach might have some advantages.

When I played as a student I tried to get my handicap under 21 but I can't remember doing that, and I haven't played more than 4 games since 1975. Nothing like renewal, eh?

George Floyd

Alan from Raumati Beach

These are the last words of George Floyd, a 46-year-old man who died as a US police officer pinned him down, kneeling on his neck for seven minutes, until he suffocated:
"It's my face man
I didn't do nothing serious man
please
please
please I can't breathe
please man
please somebody...
