Wearing green in Gold Canyon

Saturday, St Patrick’s Day: Bacon and eggs for breakfast. Skyped with Alex. Read all morning. Watched some golf on TV in the afternoon. Ed Peters called to invite me to go golfing Sidewinder with him and Lyle — I declined. We’ll get together tomorrow.

Golfing on St Patrick's DayIt was windy and a bit cooler today. Forecast for the next few days is rain and cold. (At home in Steinbach it hit 19 degrees!) So at around 3:30 we called Mountain Brook Golf Course and got an immediate tee time. Sue and I walked the front nine, shooting pretty good. When we were done we re-did holes 1, 2 and 9. Still not dark at 6:30. We headed to the Firehouse Bar for a Guinness to celebrate St. Patty’s Day.

Had leftovers for supper. It was 8 o’clock by the time we sat down to watch one of my downloaded movies. We watched Ikiru, A 1952 Japanese film. Subtitles. Black and white. Not bad, not great. We were tired and went to bed soon after that.
