In today’s world of communication variations we (particularly people
of my generation) have to get used to terms that would never have
been foreseen twenty years ago. Terms such as hacking (my name is
Hocking) make me wonder if there has been a Hocking hacking back in
my younger days. Others to come to mind are “Youtube”, Facebook,
Twitter and a few others where you hear about news, situations or
reports or opinions going “viral”. Well, this weekend, I personally
went viral, at least that is how I saw myself in the zombie-like
image that presented itself to me in the bathroom mirror on Saturday
morning. I have been carrying a condition since my last visit to Bali
in February 2014. Something tipped it over the edge on Friday, and my
state of health was one which did not do me any good whatsoever on
this occasion. I certainly went viral, and had no option other than
cancelling my golf booking and the organising of the weekly raffle.
It was not my wish to present myself too closely to club members,
particularly serving food (unless it was to the Bandit). We run a
well-managed kitchen at Safety Beach, and I would never have forgiven
myself if I had been responsible for some outbreak caused by my own
condition. So that is why you didn’t have a raffle this week.

Just a note to lady members and friends: The Safety Beach Ladies Golf
members will be having a couple of special occasions very shortly.
Keep Oaks Day (Thursday 5 November) and the Annual Shopping Tour
(Sunday 8 November) clear. These two occasions are very popular, so
bookings are necessary. More soon.
