The theme image for Sepia Saturday 317 features a quartet of golfers. Golfers have always been in short supply in my family (until the current younger generation at least - but pictures of The Lad swinging his club would hardly fit in with the sepia demographics required for our meme). I have managed to stretch the concept of "family" to the very limits of its elasticity and discovered some old photos from the collection of the first husband of a cousin of Isobel's. Even then, I am one short of the required quartet but golfing beggars cannot be choosers. I have no idea who the people in the photographs are other than the fact that the first one has a caption which seems to say "My Grandad White". But no further words are necessary - you know what Mark Twain nearly said: "Too much talk about golf is a good blog spoiled".

I suspect that the two men have been photographed on the same municipal putting green. The picture of the female golfer is, however, in another league, both in antiquity and the seriousness of the approach to the game. She looks as though she might just have hit a long drive and is wondering how far the ball may have gone. Whilst she makes her way down the fairway to find it, you might want to pass some time by going over to the Sepia Saturday Blog and seeing what everyone else is coming up with for Sepia Saturday 317.
