Dave Austad explains what new technology you can get with manufacturers marching mildly in May. Memorial Day Sale --where I'm going to be. The Austad mobile fitting center for Great Life goes to Bakker Crossing this weekend. What a Great Life it is!!

Randy Derheim--Mr. Pinnacle is back from addressing grads at Brown Institute in the Twin Cities. Randy and our own Craig Mattick are grads. Derheim talks Recharging our batteries -- that could be Mattick, Derheim, or Mike Weir who came from Canuck-ville to 2nd last week at the Byron Nelson.

Dr. Tim Lee Burton -- Speciality Orthopedics owes me a delivery from our trip to Scheels for our live show Friday. He was teasing me with a "just my short size" orange ball retriever and 100 golf balls packaged in a Tupperware tin. Dr. Tim gets people in and out of his office and will talk about Tiger's troubles --- still not able to take a full swing and know when he'll be playing again.

Paul Doherty-Golf Etc---needed me to bring in my wife's 7 iron. He is replacing a shaft in an 8 iron that she threw the head out on at Central Valley. The Baglogist is in the shadow of O'Gorman High School that just won the girls high school tournament in Pierre Tuesday.

Dr. Max Reinecke--Reinecke Chiropractic understands pain---silent triggers --the need for good insurance --and the difference between chiropractors. Got the twinges -- back pain--Dr. Max will answer.
