It was a cool but gorgeous day today.
After some morning chores, I headed over to Wildwood Country Club to join my old buddy Dan for a golf game. Dan was one of our mortgage loan officer clients when I was in the title business. His passion for golf gave us something in common and made for a good excuse to do a bit of client entertaining. :)
He kept up with our exploits for quite awhile after we left, longer than most of the business-related folks from our prior lives.
After seeing he was on Facebook, I made contact a few months ago and we planned to have a golf game when we got back to Louisville. So today was the day.
One of Dan's friends, John, joined us and we teed off at 11:30. I actually hit the ball pretty well today except for a few early chunks and "where did that come froms". But my putting was atrocious - not good on the quick, unlevel greens. :)
Still, it was wonderful being out.
At least I got a couple of good pics. :)
That was Dan stroking a putt at the waterfall hole.
A little color at one of the tee boxes.
I had more good birdie attempts than I've had in a long time, but I only made one of them. I also three-putted more greens than I have in a long time. The scoring was bad 90-something. Oh well. :)
It'll get better this summer. :)
I got home and got ready for dinner. Tonight we had plans with Jeff & Stephanie. Jeff has been my best friend since college, and Linda & I both grown really close to Stephanie over the years.
In addition to being great friends, Stephanie handles all of our mail. She opens it and scans and emails it to us. If we need the hard copies, she sticks it in pre-paid priority mail envelopes that we send her and ships it to us when each envelope gets full and we are settled somewhere long enough.
We met at their house and then headed over to one of our favorite locally-owned restaurants, Corner Cafe'. We had a great meal and a very nice evening.
After dinner, Jeff made a stop at The Comfy Cow, a local ice cream shop. We were full, but we managed to find room in what Linda calls the "dessert stomach". It's that phenomenon that allows us to eat dessert no matter how full our "regular" stomach feels. :)
Eventually, after some time at their house, we headed home. It was waaaayyyy past our bedtime. I didn't get my post-golf nap, so Linda had to drive home. :)
Tomorrow we are getting the Jeep worked on and we have another dinner out. We haven't had a completely free day yet since being in Louisville, and I doubt we will before we leave. I'm looking forward to getting to our summer job so we can get some rest between our 18 hours of work per week. :)
By the way, we have had some initial interest in a small, fall Rally. So stay tuned for details over the next couple of weeks. :)
