Hottest Day Of The Summer...

...turned out to be the first day of Fall...and even though it really only got up to 92 degrees, not 110 or whatever my thermometer-in-the-sun thought it was, it was still pretty ding dang diggety dong hot out there today.

Thankfully I had today off from work because it's our anniversary... how about some champagne and roses?  We kid each other about this one being the dirty dozen, but apart from trusting Christ as my Savior, Karen is the best thing that's ever happened to me.

And today she wanted to put her toes in the lake, so even though I was sure on the hottest day of the year it was going to be jammed, off to the beach we went...
...and to my happy surprise, it really wasn't that crowded at problem finding a parking spot and the beach was occupied but not swarmed.

That's a view of the Spyglass Condominiums...Karen and I have talked about retiring there sometime in the next decade or so.  To do so I'm going to have to sell a lot more books than I have to date, so I need you and 500,000 of your closest friends to each buy two...that's not asking too much, is it?

More pics from the beach today...

A gorgeous day and even though we weren't there all that long it was a good time...

...and I started the day off pretty well, out on the links to walk 9 and did ok.

For whatever reason things made sense today...finished with the same golf ball I started with and hit my mashie 165 yards a couple of times...that's good for me...hit it 150 yards several times, and was consistently in the 135 to 140 range.

Even birdied the short par 4 #6...slight fade on my drive, short chip onto the green and a 1 putt of a 15 footer for a bird.

Of course 7 was one of those holes when I lost track of the stroke count - hey, can I help it I only have 9 fingers?  After a decent drive from the tee, things kind of fell apart...ended up in the sand trap and 3 putted...only hole I did that today.

Oh well...overall it was a good round for me and a very pleasant stroll through the country.

Even got to see a free range chicken at the end...
...which confused me bc I frequent Pheasant Run golf course, not chicken run golf course...

Anyway, this was a good day...Karen made burgers on the grill tonight and we finished the day watching a movie together...color me a happy man.

And we still have the weekend in front of us...insert woo hoo! here.

but now it's late and I'm off to dream land...

later, mcm fans...
