Only Yankee Jack and I showed up. From 10-12 players, we are down to 2. It is Summer!
Yankee is a bull of a man! A four hundred pounder! And the nicest guy in the world!
He was tired after the first hole. Beat!
Turns out Yankee had surgery last Wednesday. He was in the hospital for 3 days. It was too early for him to be on the golf course! Especially in the hot humid summer weather. Our tee shirts were soaked by the end of the first hole.
Yankee lasted 8 holes. He was getting weaker and weaker. I told him not to pass out! No way I could pick him up!
We quit at the end of 8. I was ahead. Of course! I can always beat the sick, sore, lame and disabled! Won $4! Yankee insisted I take it.
So I was home early. I did not want to play alone.
I hopped in the pool for about an hour. Swam laps. I need it!
I had a sandwich out by the pool. And then a nap. Love to nap!
Marty was at the Chart Room last night. We had a couple of drinks. Then across the street to the Hot Tin Roof for dinner.
Met an interesting couple at the bar. Brian and Aimee. They have lived in Key West for 3 years. Hail from Michigan originally!
We chatted a long time. Nice people.
Brian works for the County Attorney’s office. He is part of the support staff. Aimee is at the Conch Guest house on Truman Avenue, across the street from St. Mary’s Catholic Church. Aimee claims the banana bread they make for their guests’ breakfast is outstanding! She invited me to stop over some morning at 8 to enjoy! I will!
I imbibed a bit too much last night. Slightly hung over this morning. I hate paying for my sins!
Key West weather this time of the year is the best! Warm and humid by day. Cool in the evening. I drove with the convertible top down last night.
The sun is already up this morning. A slight breeze. That lone palm tree outside my window swaying ever so slightly. The water creeping along.
Another good day in the making!
Have a good day!
