In case you’ve been concerned, I didn’t jump off my roof after reading the profile of Lisa Pavin in this month’s Avid Golfer — rather I’ve been enjoying some R&R. I stayed in from Fashion’s Night Out this Friday evening to catch up on my neglected blog, and more important, a closer study of the lengthy article on the Captainess.
