I’ve heard this saying many times and it never fails to get my attention. Who is lucky? Well, let’s take a look at an incredible example that I happened to run across last year.
A 103-YEAR-OLD JUST HIT A HOLE-IN-ONE!
When I first heard this news on TV my first reaction was that I heard wrong. Later, I came across an article by Tom Balog in the Sarasota Herald Tribune and lo and behold! I had heard everything correctly.
HE’S HAD A LIFETIME OF INCREDIBLE LUCK
Gus Andreone, is a former PGA teaching pro who has lived in Palm-Aire since 1988. On Wednesday, December 17, 2014 he scored a hole-in-one (his eighth) at the Palm-Aire Country Club in Sarasota, Florida. This was 75 years after he hit his first one. But there’s more to this story.
This 103-year-old is still swinging. Go Gus!
Andreone won the Pennsylvania State Lottery in 1983, two Florida Fantasy Five lotteries, an automobile at a raffle in the sixties and a case of soda pop and bananas as a boy in the late twenties.
When interviewed he said, “Naturally I feel great about this. To have a hole-in-one at my age is pretty special because I have a difficult time keeping my balance. I wobble up to the tee, straighten up and get my balance before I hit the ball to make sure I don’t fall down when I’m swinging.”
His “junior” golf partners (sixty-plus) went ballistic when they witnessed this incredible feat. “Gus raised his hands over his head. He didn’t leave the ground – but the rest of us sure did,” said one. “We were jumping!”
SOME FOLKS DO HAVE ALL THE LUCK
A piece in Fast Company magazine How to Make Your Own Luck by Dan Pink, reviews a book by Richard Wiseman, the head of a psychology research department at the University of Hertfordshire in England. In an interview with the affable professor at a café overlooking London’s Hyde Park they discuss both the book, The Luck Factor: Changing Your Luck, Changing Your Life and what makes a person lucky. Here are a few salient points from their discussion:

Switzerland is a peaceful nation that hasn’t been involved in a war for 500 years. But that’s not its only claim to fame: it is also home to Institut Villa Pierrefeu (I.V. P.), a finishing school for females located in a village high above picturesque Montreux on Lake Geneva. In the October 8, 2018 issue of The New Yorker I read a fascinating article, written by Alice Gregory, who came up with a lot of eye-opening info about this rara avis institution.
Last month I wrote about Crazy Rich Asians, the first book in an over-the-top trilogy written by Kevin Kwan. Full disclosure: I didn’t even KNOW there were three books until an Asian acquaintance, with a classy Australian accent, told me she was reading Book #3.
With all of the new fashion coming at us, especially with spring collections hitting the stores, it's easy to get caught up in the latest trends or styling fads. Of course I enjoy breaking them down for you, such as in Fashion Week Street Style Trends or The Belt Bag, but for this post, I decided to go to basics. That is, back to basics with Adea.
