September 1st and 2nd......September already....WOW!

4:27 pm - Friday - September 2nd - Likely, CA - 95° F, 21% humidity, wind 21 mph out of the south by southwest.......partly cloudy today with a forecast high of 96° F, but it actually got up to 98° F.  On this date in 2012 TLE and I were visiting Shoshone Falls near Twin Falls, ID.....↴

Thursday - September 1st - Likely, CA:

Wow....we are now into September with a little over a month to go on our contract before we head south for the winter.  We've now been here at LPG&RVR for 5 months.....our time here has flown by!

I began to write this post about Thursday last Friday, but never finished it, so I will attempt to do that now (September 6th).  TLE and I began Thursday with a two mile walk out to Jess Valley Road and back (2 miles round trip).  We haven't done that walk before, and it was a nice change of pace.  We did the two miles in about 35 minutes averaging 3.4 mph.

I haven't hit a golf ball for about 10 days, mainly because my lower back had been stiff, and we were in Tahoe City for four of those days, so I decided to head down to the driving range early Thursday afternoon to hit a few.  My back had been a little stiff, and, frankly, out of the bucket of balls I hit there were maybe....maybe 5 that were good....the rest were bad.  I'm not an excuse maker, but with a stiff back (I tried to stretch, but it just wouldn't loosen up) I wasn't able to rotate very far, and it threw off all my timing.  I was inclined to hit another bucket to work my way out of it, but better sense ensued.  I decided to work on my short game, and I'm glad I did.  There was a lot to celebrate there.  I hit shot after shot onto the green, and many were near the hole at which I was aiming.  After I returned home TLE applied some ICY/HOT to my lower back, and I took some Tylenol.

Friday - September 2nd - Likely, CA:

We began Friday, just as we had Thursday, with a 2 mile round trip walk out to Jess Valley Road and back bettering our time by about 14 seconds, and once again averaging 3.4 mph....

....it had been 8 days since we last shopped, so after our walk we changed clothes and drove into Alturas stopping at Dollar General, Grocery Outlet, and Holiday Market, and spending a lot of money, which did not include any alcohol.  We were home a little after noon time, and since it was 'Bacon Friday' (we have bacon in some form every Friday) TLE made me a BLT for my first meal of the day.

It was another warm day with the temp hitting 93° F.  We've got about 8 days of a heatwave beginning Saturday with the hottest day being next Tuesday when it will hit 101° F, allegedly.  Since it was too hot to do anything outside we watched the entire Tottenham vs. West Ham soccer match with the final score being 1-1 at 'Full Time'.

Thanks for stopping by!
