A nice rhythm.......
We were back at work Thursday, and there were already a number of people waiting to get their carts and tee off at 8 am. TLE only needed 14 golf carts initially, but I put out 20 anyway. As it turned out we only rented 15, so she was pretty close. Thursday was also the day we clear the driving range of golf balls. We've been having trouble with the cart which pushes the ball retrieving machine around the course, but Bob and Walt thought they had gotten it fixed, however, after one pass around the upper part of the driving range it began to stall out again, so I reported that to Bob, and decided to pick up what few balls there were with the 'Shag Bag'. I was done within an hour, and got some good exercise in the process.....lol.
I was barely done collecting the driving range balls when I saw that the small Pavilion had been vacated by its current tenants so I retrieved the Husqvarna riding lawn mower and headed up the hill to mow, and trim that site before its next occupants arrive.
With nothing else to do before TLE's lunch break I began washing the two 5 gallon buckets of balls I picked from the driving range, and managed to get one bucket done by 11:30 am. I basically get a two hour break from 11:30 am to 1:30 pm each work day....the first hour is sitting in the Clubhouse office, whilst TLE takes her lunch break, answering the phone, and answering questions of customers, then I take my lunch break, and head home. It's a nice break for me, especially now that the days are becoming warmer, but usually by the time I get back from my lunch break there are a lot of golf carts in the 'Cart Return' area, and then my afternoons descend into washing, and stowing one cart after another.
Frankly, the jobs I do are not that difficult, or physically demanding, I don't mind any of the jobs I'm tasked with doing on my four day shift, and there is enough variety that I never get bored. The 8 hour work day passes quickly for both TLE and I as we both stay busy. I make it a point to stop what I'm doing every so often, and just look around at the amazing views which surround LPG&RVR.
I was home a little after 5 pm, showered, and sitting in one of the Adirondack chairs on the 'lido deck' by the time TLE arrived home from work at 5:20 pm. We both sat outside until almost 6:30 pm enjoying the early evening balmy breezes, and listening to a little Frank Sinatra before heading inside for the night.
We've settled into a nice rhythm here at LRG&RVR, and are more thankful by the day for our decision to spend the summer here, and are now talking about a repeat performance next summer.
Thanks for stopping by!
