The incidents....

 6:45 am - Tuesday - May 17th - Likely, CA - 37° F, humidity 70%, wind - CALM....crystal clear, blue, sunny skies today with a forecast high of 76° F.  On this date in 2014 TLE and I arrived at Tahoe Valley Campground to work for our first summer.....↴

Well, Monday was my first time retrieving golf balls from the driving range.  Below is a picture of the contraption we push around the driving range with an old Yamaha gold cart.....

.....here you see the baskets are all full, the driving range is picked clean, and now it's time for me to wash them.....picking them up is the easy part....cleaning them is a longer process.  

We rented out about 13 carts Monday, and TLE says we sold just under 30 rounds of golf, so it was a moderately busy day.  Nevertheless, I had time to do some mowing utilizing the bigger, newer, and faster Husqvarna riding lawnmower, plus I did some weed whacking around the bocce ball 'courts', and around the 'Caddie Shack'.  In all it was a very busy day for me, and I arrived home whipped.  In between I had a couple of adventures.

After we run the ball machine around the course and get all the balls we can get that way we walk out into the trees and get the rest of the balls using a 'shag bag' which looks something like this.....

......there is also a creek which cuts across the middle of the course from which balls must be recovered, and while I was hopping from rock to rock getting golf balls out of it I slipped, and fell into the creek getting both of my Keens soaking wet (socks too), and getting my new, red hoodie sweatshirt muddy.....doh!  I headed home to change into dry shoes, etc. and was back on the job in about 20 minutes.  

Next, after I transferred the balls from the 6 baskets on the ball machine I drove it out to the back of the driving range where we park it, and promptly got it stuck so bad I had to remove the three rollers, lift the arm to which they are attached, and back the Yamaha out of the soft dirt.  Those rollers are heavy!  Anyway, it took me close to 45 minutes to disassemble, and reassemble the rollers to the pivot arm on the front of the cart.  Other than those two incidents it was a normal day at LPRV&G....lol.

Monday was also our third payday since arriving at LPRV&G.....it is nice to see money flowing back into our bank account!  Thanks for stopping by!
