Bubba Wins the Masters

Sunday: Woke up at around 6. It’s supposed to be a scorcher today. I wrote my blog entry for yesterday. And I watched my morning news shows. Sue got up and made coffee — and then she made the most delicious blackberry pancakes for breakfast! We watched a story about the Masters 25 years ago. Then we watched the final day of this year’s Masters. Sat in my big black leather lazy-boy all day. The golf was fantastic. Lead changing all afternoon. Oosterhuis leading by a couple, Phil making a valiant effort, Bubba Watson getting some key back nine birdies to force a playoff. And then Watson wins the thing on the second playoff hole. Fantastic.

Cheese- and bacon-burgers on the barbecue for supper. Then 60 Minutes — the news: Mike Wallace has died today at age 93. Then I watched a couple of episodes of Holmes on Homes — the Canadian carpenter repairing faulty foundations, etc. We watched my last downloaded movie, Red Road, a weird movie about a girl who is a CCTV security operator who watches a man from her past on her monitors and chases after him into dangerous situations. Very slow, hard to understand the accents, dark. But okay.

Internet was still flaky today — I tried to call my mom but got cut off. We’ll probably go return our modem to MediaCom first thing in the morning. Watched a bit more TV and went to bed.
