Eight Greens Bowl

My son, Keith, posts a funny quip: “How am I expected to find a partner for life, when I can’t even choose the right grocery cart without a funny wheel?”                                     His uncle, Martin, answers: “That’s why you take them for a test run. And don’t keep the first one out of the line.”   Haha!
