7:16 am - Monday - May 20th - Ramona, CA - 51° F, 90% humidity (raining cats and dogs, however), wind 10 mph out of the west.......rainy today with a forecast high of 59° F.....the view this morning......↴

The story of Sunday was the rain.....with the very small exception of between 8 and 9 am the rain came down all day long.....sometimes quite hard (like it is right now as I write Monday morning).  Frankly, that is really part of the story of our first 3 weeks plus since we arrived at RORVR....a lot of rain.

Our plan from Saturday evening had been meet at my son Tim's cabin at 8 am Sunday where the ladies would prepare breakfast for all of us.  The walk down and back was dry as the rain had stopped.  We had scrambled eggs, turkey sausage, fruit, toast and coffee.....

Breakfast at Cabin 65 was a very typical Hockwald gathering as there were no less than 4 conversations going on all at once.  TLE and I are very blessed to have such great daughters and sons-in-law.  Laila calls me 'Clarkey', and the guys call be 'Dad'....I love it.  By 9 am it was time to begin our adieus (until next times), and by 10 am they were all on the road back to their workaday lives.

I spent the rest of the day watching the PGA, and listening to the rain on the roof.  Predictably, Brooks Koepka won the PGA by leading wire to wire.  He began the day at 12 under par with a 7 stroke lead, however, a stretch of 4 consecutive bogies on the back 9 allowed Dustin Johnson to creep within one stroke with 5 holes to play, but then Koepka stabilized while Dustin Justin bogied the next two holes.  Koepka added another bogey in the last two holes, but hung on to win by 2 strokes at 8 under par.  By the end of the day only 6 players were still under was a windy, blustery, cool day at Beth Page Black and it took its toll on the scores.

TLE was home a little after 2 pm, and watched the last 90 minutes of the tournament with me.  We enjoyed a quiet afternoon, and I think I even took a nap.  I have not been in much need of naps lately, and I kind of miss them

We watched the 3 hour finale of 'American Idol' which was won by Laine Hardy.  While we liked Laine, we really thought Alejandro Arranda should have won......every song he sung Sunday evening was written and composed by him....a new first for 'American Idol'.  He is one of the most talented artists to ever grace the 'American Idol' stage, and is a local boy from Pomona, CA.  We know he will have a long career in the music industry.

And that was our Sunday......a few more pictures for your viewing pleasure from Saturday, and then I will get out of your way......↴
