Sunday in Gold Canyon, watching Sunday at Augusta

Almost rode my bike over this fresh rattlesnake meat in the middle of the road

Got up early. Made coffee and sat down to watch Fareed at 7:00 am. Then I went for a long bike ride — a couple of trips around the loop, plus some ‘snooping’ around the roads up in Mountain Brook where the homes are on the Dinosaur course. I stopped in at Bashas’ and had a cinnamon twist and bought a bun to take home for lunch. 

By the time I got home the final round of the Masters was already in progress. I sat down to watch. I made myself a great sandwich for lunch. Had a FaceTime call with Alex — we went through my mail which she had just picked up. After the call I watched the rest of the Masters. I was sort of cheering for Rory McIlroy but he was going in the wrong direction today. Then Spieth made an impressive charge — but not enough to take it away from yesterday’s leader, Patrick Reed. 

It was 4pm when the golf was over. I decided to take a ride in the van. I ended up on Signal Butte and spent a couple of hours ‘shopping’. I bought some new golf pants and some t-shirts. It was close to 8 o’clock by the time I had supper — a ‘double double’ at In-N-Out burger. 

Back at home I watched a Kennedy special on CNN and then the local news. Went to bed at around 11pm.
