Busy Saturday

Bacon and eggs for breakfast. Skyped with Alex and Max — Max was golfing and riding his Strider and shooting baskets in the basement. He looked to be enjoying a whole day at home with Mom and Dad. I decided that because we have so many movies cued up ready for us to watch, we would watch one of them this morning. “Big Eyes” isn’t up for any Academy Awards, but it was nominated for 3 Golden Globes and Amy Adams won one for Best ActressĀ in a musical or comedy movie. We watched it this morning — and enjoyed it. Later in the morning Sue and I went for a bike ride — rode around the loop to Bashas where Sue picked up groceries while I ordered a sandwich at the Subway restaurant. We ate at the outdoor tables and then cycled back home. I took a few clubs and cycled across to the driving range — still working on the hybrids.

Hans and Dave and MarylouI got home just in time to have a quick shower and then head right back out to the Mountain Brook Golf Course. We had a 3 o’clock tee time with the Driedgers. We walked nine holes on a beautiful Saturday afternoon — no waiting for the group ahead, no pressure from a group behind. Now all I would need to make it a better afternoon is to actually be able to shoot a golf ball. But not this afternoon. I played TERRIBLE. We finished by 5pm and headed back home.

Hans and Dave and MarylouAfter a quick stop at our place we went out again — invited to Dave and Marylou’s for supper. Hans and Chris were there too. Dave and Marylou made spaghetti and salad for supper. We watched the sunset from the deck and then spent the next 3 hours around the supper table. Good food, good conversations. Home around 9pm. A bit of TV and off to bed.
