The end of season Buffy & John Invitational Golf Classic was held on Friday, October 9th at the Black Bear Golf Club.  Buffy recaptured the 2020 Championship by scoring a net 83 to John's 88, winning low net and winning low putts.  John won closet to the pin.  To see the photo of the 2020 Champ and scorecard click HERE.

*   People ask "How do you calculate your golf scores for the Buffy and John season long competition?"  "Has our golf game improved since the beginning of the golf season."  The golf card below indicates how the statistics of the July 16th golf match were recorded and how Buffy earned the win in Low Net, Match Play and Closest to the Pin, and John won Low Putts.

*  Buffy and John are excited that the 2020 - 2021 skis season is about to begin.  To kick off the new ski season Buffy & John visited BIGSnow, America's 1st indoor ski area, to get in a few warm up runs.  It was a great day followed by a safe Outbacks celebration of another fun day and the coming Holiday season.

*  Thanksgiving was impacted by COVID19, resulting in isolation from family and traditional celebrations.  However the 2020  Thanksgiving was also wonderful because it was celebrated at home with Buffy making the best Turkey ever, a homemade apple pie topped off with homemade vanilla ice cream, all capped off with a Buffy's homemade Grand Marnier cordial.  It doesn't get much better than that.  We are truly blessed and have a lot to be thankful for.

*  Buffy & John celebrated Halloween in spite of the COVID-19 epidemic by carving a pumpkin into a scary jack-o-lantern and providing neighbor youngsters wit bags of candy and a lucky coin. 

*  Buffy and John provided photographic and PR support again to the 5th Annual 2020 CHCM Golf Outing at the beautiful Mansion Ridge Golf Club on Friday, October 16, 2020.  In spite of rain, the team of Buffy, John and Stephen Chambelain ended up with a even par 72 with John taking the prize in the straightest drive contest.

*  The Buffy & John Invitational Golf Classic Championship was held on Friday, October 9, 2020 at the beautiful Black Bear Golf Club.  The Championship marks the end of season contest to determine bragging rights which John has had for the past two season.  However this year Buffy was not to be deterred.  With Buffy leading by 1 stroke in the low net competition and the two golfers tied 4 - 4 in match play after 9 holes, Buddy went on to card a 45 on the back nine to card a 91 gross and 83 net to defeat John by 5 strokes in the net competition and won the match play contest 6 to 8.  Almost completed a sweep winning low putts 36 to 32, but John's closest to the pin on hole 5 gave him the honors in the closest to the pin competition.  The winning score card is posted below:

*  The relaxing of the COVID-19 restrictions by the state of New Jersey made it possible for the reopening of BIG Snow the 1st indoor ski area on Tuesday, September 1st.  Buffy and John were there to celebrate the opportunity to enjoy their 100th day on snow for the 2019-2020 ski season.  It was a blast!  Thanks Joe Hession and staff for making it happen.

*  After a long time in semi-isolation (exception - golf) Buffy and John were invited to visit their ski buddy friends Bonnie and Rich at their beautiful home in Westtown, New York to enjoy a few adult beverages and some goodies prepared by Bonnie.  Buffy brought along a sample of her homemade "Buffy's Irish Cream" to toast our blessings and good health.  The talk was of fishing, skiing, a bit of golf and family with the conclusion that we are blessed to have good friends and healthy families in the face of COVID-19.

Buffy and John celebrated the birth of America, July 4th, socially distancing on the Ballyowen Golf Course and then toasted America with their friend Luis, Food & Beverage Manager on the deck of Owen's Pub with a few adult beverages and lunch.  Later they toasted America again with some of Buffy's homemade Irish Cream Liqueur and a slice of Buffy's homemade lemon cake.  Happy Birthday America!  With all its faults we are blessed to be Americans.

John celebrated Father's Day remembering his Dad, Marion T. Whiting, his children, Brad and Denise, playing golf at his favorite golf course Crystal Springs.  He was then treated to a delicious Father's Day dinner on the deck of their Hidden Valley home topped off with a homemade apple pie and homemade ice cream.  It was a wonderful Father's Day!

*  On Sunday, May 3rd Buffy and headed back to Hidden Valley Lake to see if their fishing luck had changed.  It did.  Buffy caught two fish and John caught one.  The pictures below document their success with a little help from Photoshop on the size of Buffy's 1st fish.  This was to show up our fishing buddy Lou.  Her second catch is more like the first she caught.  It was a beautiful day at the lake.  Just the two of us and no Coronavirus.


Eat your heart out Lou.  Your fish was bait compared to this monster.

John's only catch.  Don't ask why he has pants rolled up and no shoes.

Buffy shows off her second catch.

John keeps trying but he is unable to compete with Buffy. 

Inspired by our fishing expert Lou, Buffy and John tried their luck fishing at nearby Hidden Valley Lake.  It was a beautiful day but the fish were not biting.  However it was fun and we will try it again when the fish are hungry.

Buffy & John take a fishing break at the beautiful Hidden Valley Lake.

What do Buffy and John do after over 40 days staying home - they go to the Flat Brook to watch their friend and ski buddy Lou fish while maintaining social distancing (most of the time).  We enjoyed a couple of adult beverages and a picnic while Lou did all the work.  He even caught a fish.

The COVID-10 pandemic required that Easter Sunday be celebrated in isolation.  However families got together via the Internet through a Zoom conference.
