I am starting this blog as a way of staying in touch with family & friends & hopefully I will be able to keep it updated. Don't make me eat my words! The golf season should be winding down although you'd never know it from the weather which has been incredible - in the high 70's to low 80's & no rain. I am celebrating my first Sat off since March but of course there is a price to pay!.. I start my new hours tomorrow, Sun, Mon 6:00am to 6:30ish, Tues, Weds 11:30am to 6:30ish, Thurs 6:00am to 1:00pm then Fri, Sat off. The days are getting shorter so it will get easier. Stay tuned for further update & feel free to leave comments!

Before I left for work Sunday at 5:30am I woke her up to look at it & didn't like the way it was swelling up.  I told if it didn't look better when I got home at lunch we were going back to urgent care.
