Tuesday: Made coffee before 7 in the morning. Alex was up soon after that. It was already getting a bit warm outside. After breakfast the girls went on a bike ride and returned the movies to Walgreens. I worked on a logo for Oakleaf. Tim watched cooking and golf on TV.
After lunch the girls were getting ready for a big shopping trip to Chandler Fashion Mall. Ed Peters came by at 2:30 to pick Tim and me up for golf. Tim and I shared a cart. Great start. First hole Ed got a little upset about missing some putts. After that, we all played pretty good. I had some good hits, and some not so good hits. But no real disasters. By the time we stopped to pick up some beers before the second nine, none of us had scored an 8. So that was good.
The second nine were not as kind. First hole, a ‘9’. Next one, a ’10’. But the day was fantastic. And the golf course was eerily quiet. No one ahead of us, no one behind us. Perfect. It was getting to be around 6pm by the time we stopped for photos on hole 16. Then at 17 Val pulled up with her ‘Cyclematic’ electric bike. She took a few more photos, of the group. And okay, after scoring 53 on the front nine, my back nine score of 64 made for a total of 117 for the round. Tim had 105, Ed shot 99.
Back at the clubhouse Tim spotted 6 javelinas running across the driving range to the #1 fairway. Cool! We tried to get closer to get a better look at them in the twilight, but then they jumped over the wall into the neighborhood. Ed drove around a bit to try to get another look, but they were gone.
Ed dropped us off at our place at around 7pm. The girls were still not home from their shopping trip. Tim and I had a beer and we added up our scores. When the girls finally got home we had appetizers. Then we barbecued steak and potatoes. Had a great supper. Sat down in front of the TV to watch Frontline — and I quickly nodded off. So did Alex. After Sue had taken a few photos of sleepers, we all shuffled off to bed. Happy. Tired. All’s well in the world.
