So, Tuesday was the 3rd of four consecutive off work days for us, and we finally got out for a walk. We have a loop we do now that is about 1.28 miles in length, which is just perfect as we can cover that distance in about 20 minutes....

I had a few things I wanted to accomplish Sunday, and playing at least 9 holes of golf was one of them. With TLE acting strictly as my chauffeur, we headed out to the first hole tee box around 3 pm to play the front 9.....well, just me.....TLE has no aspirations to be a golfer, but I may get her to hit a few balls on the driving range....who know what will transpire from there? Why so late in the day you ask....well, the last golfers on the course teed off around 1 pm, so they were on the back 9 by the, and no new rounds of golf are sold after 3 pm, meaning I could play the front 9 with no pressure of anyone in front of, or behind me. I didn't hit any balls prior to beginning my round, and the first couple of holes bore witness to that fact. There were a lot of 'topped' balls, and a 'shank', or two, but by the 3rd hole, which happens to be a par 3 I began to hit the ball much better.....I was on the green in 2, and sank a 3 foot putt for par.....not to shabby.....
.....it's going to take me a few rounds to get my back used to swinging a golf club again. After I hit that large bucket of balls a week ago my lower back was not happy with me, but the discomfort went away after a day, or two. This time, playing the front 9, my lower back was aching at the end, but after a long, hot shower, and some liberally applied Tiger's Balm to the muscles of my lower back by TLE it recovered pretty quickly, and I am pain free as I write this morning (Monday).

Forecast high of 65° F....wow, two firsts in one day.....first crystal clear, blue, sunny skies day, and first day in the mid 60's! Our lovely view this morning......↴
.....TLE reports she is loving her job in the office, and is mostly back up to speed on using Campground Master. The customers are very friendly, and love the golf course. The restaurant was full from 7 am until 3 pm when they close, and as good as the food is I am not surprised.....even local cowboys drive in for lunch.

......each morning, when it isn't raining, or snowing, I roll out the 5 electric carts, and if they are all rented then I begin to roll out the Yamaha gas carts, of which there are 10. If we have a particularly busy day (we haven't yet due to the weather) then I will begin to roll out the older gas golf carts....I think the brand name on those is 'Club Car'. The cart return area is just to the left in the 2nd picture, and that is where I clean, and/or wash them as the need arises. Most of the time it is just a matter of removing broken golf tees, spoiled score cards, and any other trash left behind.
