lady friend came from Florida, to my home in Hot
Springs, Arkansas with the intentions to marry
me. We had been planning the union for months.
had met her on a previous trip to Florida to sell
my line of custom clubs. We visited long distance
by phone for nearly a year and she was flying
over Arkansas on a business trip and decided to
stop in Arkansas to see me. She stayed four
months! After a few weeks she asked how I made a
living and I said "come with me." I
took her with me to the driving range at a gated
community, Hot Springs Village. At that time they
had eight golf courses and a permanent residence
of about 15,000 people... all golfers. I had
worked there as a salesman 20 years prior and
owned a lot and membership.
sitting in chairs watching the golfers hit balls,
I said, "watch this." I walked over to
a prospect and asked if he would mind hitting my
club and give me his honest opinion. He hit a few
balls and asked the price. I explained that I
sold them for $295.00 but he could have that one
for an even $200.00. He called his visiting son
over and asked for a hundred dollars because all
he had on him was a hundred and change. I sold
several clubs that afternoon and Cindy said,
"it must be a good club." It was that!
main business was marketing private label clubs
but it was too easy to slip a few extra clubs in
my bag and sell them to whoever they paired me
with at check in. Soon most residents in
"the village" had my club in their bag.
That was in the early 90's. A competitor who had
a store a few miles from the main entrance to the
village copied my club, advertised it heavily and
sold many hundreds or thousands so the Village
became saturated with my propietary miracle very
quickly. My main market was businesses across the
entire USA. I just dabbled in sales to the
residents of the village.
cancer took me down at the turn of the century
and even though I was the recipient of a
"divine healing" which can be read

Miracles #7 and #8 explain this.
was convinced by the VA specialists that I should
have the section of colon removed because it had
been there a long time and probably had spread
but just in case all preventative measures should
be exercized. I listened and opted for the chemo,
radiation and surgery, not sure if it was the
right decision but my brother was buried the same
day I was diagnosed and my sister was putting
pressure on me too. However I think I was just
lacking faith as I was diagnosed May 13 and the
healing took place 4 days later, May 17. Read
about it on the aforementioned link.
