Winter vacation 2017-2018

Posted 01-08-2018 at 03:51 PM by onebuck


Been in Florida for a few months now. We had a short cold spell but it's warming into the 70's now and we can get back to our golfing. Been real cold in Illinois and surrounding states in the Midwest. In Florida when it gets down into the 30 or 40 it's freezing to everyone.

It has been two weeks since I have played golf. I'll be playing outside our park on Tuesday and it will be a challenge. Longer courses can be a challenge when you are working a executive par 3 course. Hopefully I will be successful on Highland Reserve. Nice fairways, sloping greens with little sand. I really do not like working the traps. My putting has improved with good reads.

We have contractors widening the driveway and putting in a cart path to the garage. Here in Florida it requires a contractors license to get concrete ordered from the plant. The base here is nothing like we require in Illinois but here they do not have to worry about a deep freeze that can cause pads to buckle & crack. I paid extra to have re-mesh and fiberglass mix. The order has been placed and we get it Wednesday morning at 08:00. Heck the cost per yard is much greater than at home but so is everything else a major increase in cost here in Florida.

My beer cost me $19.98/case for Coors 24 pack, I am now getting 16 Oz 15 pack for $15.58 which is cheaper per oz. I have a lung infection from the damn mold and rag weed. Dr put me on a antibiotic for the next ten days so there goes my beer drinking for the 10 days. I'll just suffer through and make up after the drugs have done their thing.

I hope everyone has a Happy & Great New Year!

    Envious. Kansas had temperatures which never got above 10F for several days. Today was nice, nearly 40F.
