Trisha has quite a collection of day lilies. This small yellow one just caught some of the rays of the setting sun to show off before night fall.
I wasn’t planning on attending the Boeing Champions’ Tour event this year but Schwab gave me a pass to their hospitality suite overlooking the 18th green so I decided to take advantage for the offer. I followed Tom Lehman and Rocco Mediate for five holes or so just to watch two guys who don’t have classic, super athletic swings but still are superb ball strikers. It was really fun, especially when Rocco birdied four of the first five holes. These guys are so impressive.
I won’t be surprised if the Seahawks don’t win 13 games again but I do expect they will be fun to watch, especially if the offense performs the way it has in preseason games against San Diego and Chicago.
It took about five weeks of demolition, weeding, prep work and construction but the garage is finally finished.
The maple veneer looks fantastic and we have tons of adjustable shelving to make the most efficient use of the space. No I have room to practice putting in the garage with moving either of the cars outside.
I didn’t putt well but otherwise played pretty good golf to finish 1st net and 4th gross in my division, and 20th overall. Scoring was way up compared to prior years due, I think, to a particularly challenging course setup. The blue tees were mostly as far back as they could be and the hole placements were very challenging, often on the edge of a slope or tucked into a hard-to-access corner. I was very happy with three birdies over the two days (on holes 2, 3 and 18). A triple bogey on my nemesis hole, number 11, in today’s round kept be out of 2nd place.
