My days are limited in Florida

Posted 04-08-2020 at 02:47 PM by onebuck

Hi,

It has been nice here in Florida until this damn covid-19 shutdown. Social distancing and stay in place sucks but I do not need to get that damn bug.

We can still play golf since our course has been closed to the public. We use our own golf carts. We no longer play outside courses since those have been closed to the public. It's been real hot the last few days so we start early to beat the heat.

We plan to leave on 4-25 early Saturday morning and drive...

Florida vs Illinois winter

Posted 11-03-2019 at 07:50 AM by onebuck

Hi,

I made it back to Florida. Missed the first snow back in Illinois by one day. First week here was in the 90's and now it has settled back a bit to the mid 70's and high 80. Love the warmth!

First thing back, I had to replace my five year old Golf cart batteries set (4 x 12VDC). Trojan T-1275 at $153/ea plus 96 pounds each. I would have the install done but earliest time to get on schedule was Nov 19, 2019. I need my cart for more than just Golf. We use it to transport...

Florida visit slowly coming to an end.

Posted 03-28-2019 at 08:48 AM by onebuck

Hi,

It has been nice in the land of the sun. Playing golf in the middle of Midwest winters is a big plus. My game has shown some improvement on the short grass here. Midwest grass is a lot easier to hit off of than the Bermuda that is cut short here in Florida.

With all my physical limits it has been a work in progress. Since I have in the past 5 spinal surgeries that do require me to use a modified single plane swing so a I can control the club head and speed. My handicap...

Florida, Land of the sun!

Posted 01-28-2019 at 08:21 AM by onebuck

Hi,

It's been nice here in Florida until the last few weeks. Rainy and chilly. Been playing golf daily, problems with some injuries that I had to work out. Game is solid when I keep to my rhythm and not over speed or try to kill the ball.

My winter home here has required some work. I told my wife that I did not come here to have continued work on the house but I am to cheap to hire most things required.

Family & fiends are showing up for the next two weeks...

Time to prepare for our trip to Florida.

Posted 09-16-2018 at 11:30 AM by onebuck

Hi,

We are leaving for Florida earlier than usual because our Granddaughter is graduating from Marine Basic training at Parris Island,S.C. in early Oct. We will have two active duty Marines in the family, three if you include their Dad(once a Marine always a Marine).

Last year our Grandson graduated from Parris Island and will be deployed about the same time as our Grandaughter's graduation.

If you ever have the chance to see a Marine Event you will see a...
