Opening day craziness & sniffing while on camera!

The golf course finally opened today a little later than normal due to Mother Nature not letting us have Spring this year.  We have  new software this year & even though I had been to work several times for training the true reality of how it works is when you are using it under the gun!  I was there on Tues just making t-times & selling tokens for the range....piece of cake compared to yesterday!  We are the first course to open for the season so it is totally insane with 3 lines ringing & a line of golfers either checking in or wanting to hit balls on the range.

John said he felt like toast when I got there at noon & it wasn't long before I felt the same way.  Lets just say the software & I had some issues I will be the first to admit I was getting a little a lot "testy".

Even though today was a beautiful day the weathermen are predicting the threat of a n'easter late Thurs & into Friday....we could get up to a foot of snow.  Yes, I know. "April Fools"

At one point during the afternoon I got a call from our local news station who wanted to come out & talk to us about the impending storm & the effects it would have on the golf course.  I said sure, come on over but we were extremely busy so someone would try to talk to them.  Of course they didn't show up until around 5:00 when everyone but me had left!  So here I am trying to answer phones, check golfers in with a huge camera stuck about 6 inches away from my face.  All this time I am trying to sound professional while it feels like my nose is dripping down my face!!!!

Not one of my finest moments!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY BIG BROTHER

Happy birthday to my big brother Terry...........have a wonderful day!

My car is pigeon-toed!!!!!!

I get out of work on Thurs at 1:00 & usually play golf with my buddy Dominic.  Yesterday was kinda rainy, blustery so we decided not to play.  I headed up to the mall but got side-tracked on the way.  One of the things on my extremely long to-do list was "get two more tires for my car".  I pulled into Mavis Tire & checked to see how long it would take.

MISTAKE #1

I was told around 20 mins before my car would get in so I decided to wait.

MISTAKE #2!

About an hour later my overly friendly mechanic wants to show me something.....how did I know it wasn't going to be pretty!  My rear "struts".....whatever they may be.... were leaking causing the rear end to lift up when I braked causing my car to "pigeon toe" which in turn was making my  new tires .....that were put on the front wheels in August......to wear unevenly.  As if that wasn't enough for my brain to digest one of the front wheels had a bad wheel bearing.







Needless to say at that poin…

Round Lake Village

Every time we go to Round Lake we wander down streets we've never seen before
A little people house
This garden was gorgeous
Look if you buy this house you definitely need to get along with your neighbors!
This house is even smaller & comes with a golf cart
This house really fascinated me
That stonework is incredible
They need to make it a little more welcoming

They are still working on my house

I would love to see the inside.......I hope they plan on selling it & then I can go to an open house
"Mama I have flyaway ears again today!"
