Do you get mistaken for Davis Love III because you LOOL like him or GOLF like him? Just curious! I feel your pain, Brother. I get mistaken for Rob Lowe all the time! Really irritating! You do a great job with all of those flowers, Lance! Keep up the good work. I am sure my wife and mother-in-law will be in for some soon! Pahl’s ROCKS!
If he golfed like Davis Love he would be Golf for a living! Thanks for the kind words Jeff.
Your picture is clearly taken at Mt. Haleakala in Maui. Dude, what where you thinking wearing shorts up there? I’ve been there twice and it has been cold as you know what until about an hour after sunrise.
Correct on location. Only it was sunset not sunrise. Had winter hat, jacket, and pants in my backpack. Yes it did get COLD.
Glad to hear of your accomplishments in the horticulture field! We had a great group of people to study with at the U of M.
