.....once they were up things began to move a little more quickly, but the two main sections were not raised until almost 5 pm, so the balance of the assembly will probably take place Friday, when I am not at work. This pergola is about 12' x 14', and will allow Bob a permanent shelter under which to work on golf carts.

As you might have surmised, I took the day off from writing Saturday, so I owe you two blog posts.....Friday, and now Saturday. Buckle up, and hold on tight....here we go! Instead of sitting down at my laptop to compose Friday's missive TLE and I watched the Tottenham vs. Southampton English Premier soccer match. As you know, we enthusiastically follow Tottenham. The game was tied at no goals late in the game with Tottenham controlling the ball about 80% of the time when Southampton score an unexpected goal on a rare counterattack. Suddenly Tottenham's undefeated season was on the line, but they scored a tying goal in the 88th minute, and then the winning goal in added time to win, and remain undefeated. Anyway, here is Friday's recap.
.....I weeded the area between the cart path, and the employee road all the way back to site #51.

On this date in 2020 we were overnighting on the Columbia River on the Washington....we would cross the 4 miler long Astoria-Megler Bridge into Oregon the next morning on our final leg to Seal Rocks RV Cove where we spent 12 months.....↴
I got dressed for work Wednesday morning not expecting to be working on the driving range clearing golf balls from its surface so it could be mowed, so I wore shorts and a t-shirt. If I had known in advance I was going to be clearing golf balls on the driving range I would have worn long pants, and a long sleeved shirt to minimize mosquito interaction. In fact, I got dressed Wednesday morning thinking it would be a pretty easy day as based on the tee time sheet we would only need 8 carts for the day. Expectations can be tricky things....sometimes you get the exact opposite of what you expect.
Within 10 minutes of arriving at the Clubhouse to stage 8 carts I saw DeWayne walking toward me. He wanted to let me know that he would be mowing the driving range later in the day, not on Thursday as we had discussed a couple of days prior, and then TLE advised she would need more than 8 carts....well, there goes my easy day....lol.
In all we ended up renting 14 carts, and all but one was back by 5 pm. I don't try to clear the driving range until after 10 am as the grass is too wet, so I headed out to do my initial round of the golf course.....
.....the sun is hitting those mountains a little after 7 pm now, and as soon as it hits the mountains you can feel the air temperature drop significantly. Within a few minutes we had retreated to the warm, friendly confines of the Newell for another evening. Now to enjoy our four day 'weekend'!
Thanks for stopping by!
