unique character Great Uncle Willard "The Poet" Cooper. His saying after golf : Yes though I walk through the shadows and valleys of bogies, I shall fear no bunkers. My wallet will be anointed with green. And surely, eagles and birdies will follow me the rest of my life. This American hobo spoke in rhyme, hence the nickname. 

He completed the following poem while drinking an ice cold Budweiser. 

{ A satisfying life requires one to take a outside chance 
   Sometimes this requires to fly by the seat of your pants
   Life's best moments generally occur by happenstance 
   But make certain you are part of the song and dance. }   


  1. I just finished the book, and thought it was a great read. Uncle
    Willard is quite a character
