A vicious cycle.....

 8:09 am - Friday - July 28th - LPG&RVR - 65° F, humidity 40%, wind 4 mph out of the south by southeast......crystal clear, blue, sunny skies today with a forecast high of 90°  F.  On this date in 2013 TLE and I were hiking near Glacier National Park......↴

I seem to have slipped into this 'mañana' frame of mind lately, and the ultimate result is I am once again a day late posting about Wednesday, and here it is Friday already.  Since today is the beginning of our four day weekend I will get to writing about Thursday later today.

Usually by the 3rd day of our work week I am thinking about heading out to mow around the tee boxes, which have been assigned to me.  Over the last month I've been having spread out the mowing (3, 10, 15, 16, 17 & 18 plus large sections of grass too small for the regular mower) over 2-3 days depending on how busy I have been, but this day was a slow day....a really slow day.  How slow you ask?  I staged just 4 golf carts to begin the day. 

I took my time making my first round of the course, stopping to talk to some early golfers who went out before 8 am, checking, and re-raking a couple of the sand traps which had seen some human activity since I last raked them on Monday.  After my return I hopped on the big Husqvarna to mow around the large and small pavilions, plus the large grass area next to site #30, and then the two large grass sections which run along each side of the cart path which leads one to the #1 and #10 tee boxes.  By the time I finished mowing those two large strips of grass it was time for TLE's lunch break.

Since there were only 4 golf carts out on the course I decided to go ahead and tackle mowing around those tee boxes, and get them done in one trip.  As the summer heat has descended upon LPG&RVR the grass has begun to grow more slowly, which means I can mow much faster, and I managed to get all of the tee box mowing done in a tad over an hour.  I was back at the Clubhouse just in time to wash the four golf carts, which had been returned, put them away, and head for home at 2:30 pm.

 If I would just take my shower after work, and then sit down at my laptop I could get the blog done, but I always feel like a nap after my shower, and by the time I awaken again it takes me a while to become functional again, by that time I've lost my is a vicious!

Thank you for your patience, and thanks for stopping by!
