During the summer: Up at 5:30am and check the radar, praying that it's going to storm all day and I get to go back to bed. Not once this year so far! Work starts at 6am, make coffee for the coffee drinkers and sit around watching the morning news for half an hour while the superintendant drives around the course trying to decide what he wants us to do. General maintenance is usually the business of the day, cutting greens, tees, fairways, etc. Usually completed by 10am. After that it's usally a mish mash of detail work but since I'm third on the totem pole, I get to do the easy (lazy) stuff. Work day ends anywhere between 2pm and 4pm. Come home, shower then it's off to my buddy's place to brainstorm and work on the boat. Creativity is usually enhanced by a beer or three. Home by 7pm or 8pm. Stop in here for a few to check on y'all but too tired to type. Check the news and off to bed. Repeat, over and over and over. Today is the exception, I got off early and just want to sit in the A/C. 92F outside, too hot to do anything!

My favorite quote from Caddyshack:

Carl: "People think I'm an idiot or something because I cut lawns for a living."

Ty: "No one says that about you, as far as you know."

During the winter: Sleep in and hang out here all day!

P.S. No pics yet GB but there will be plenty this weekend. Taking out the deck and transom! I'll photo document the ineptitude of our bumbling ways!

Well I haven't been as active as usual due to a female problem. I've had to quit my job for a couple of months and I'm supposed to go in for surgery sometime this month. But here is what I did today.

I got out of bed at 8 am. I fixed the hubby and grandsons breakfast (cereal. toast and orange juice). For me, I had my usual cup of black coffee and sat and talked with hubby for a while.

I got up and washed the breakfast dishes and ran the vacuume through the house and made all the beds. Oh I almost forgot that I did the laundry and went to the grocery store.

For lunch I fixed hubby and the grandsons some BBQ'ed ribs with mashed potatoes and corn and I sat down to a relaxing drink of vodka and white grapefruit juice.

The grandsons wanted me to play with them for a while so together we spent about 2 hours pushing little hot wheels around on the bedroom carpet. VROOOOOOOOOOOOM!. I guess I had fun.

Anyway before having to get supper started hubby wanted a little attention. Another drink. Only this time it's a vodka and grapefruit juice and a budweiser.

Well supper time rolled around but I figured before I got started I needed another vodka and grapefruit juice and another budweiser.

Time to fix supper. Ok! never mind supper did get fixed. Supper turned out to be: Meatloaf with macaroni and cheese and green peas.

I guess the rest of the night is mine. But first I think I'll play here a few minutes.
