Slept well. Woke up to a breakfast of bacon and eggs. Had a leisurely morning, watching golf on TV — the Phoenix Open at TPC Scottsdale. Mickelson, who yesterday just missed shooting a 59, continues to keep the pressure on, and the 16th hole is surely getting a bit out of control. MaryLou and Sue went for a nearly 2-hour walk. When they got back we had leftover pizza for lunch.
Then off we were to the Mountain Brook Golf Course for our 1:00 tee time. The weather was a warm 75 degrees. The course was busy. My game was more like ‘the old game’ than what I thought it should be. But it was a fun day, and it brought back a lot of very fond memories for me. We finished our 18 holes by around 5:30, with the sun just setting.
Got some great photos of the patio at Dave and Mary Lou’s — with the spine of Dinosaur jutting out against the sunset, and the familiar side of Superstition Mountain reflecting it. Dave barbecued steaks for supper. After a full afternoon of outdoor activity we were famished, and supper was delicious. After supper we settled in front of the TV and watched the highlights of today’s action at the Phoenix Open. Then we watched one of Dave’s PVR’d movies — Kinky Boots. Not enough kinky to keep all of us awake right till the end. The evening ended with a bit of basketball on TV, and then up to the room to write my journal and go to sleep. Photos are coming later.
