And all of you have something coming up in 76 - 100 days. Good for you. Wish I did too but I took myself off the wait list for Alaska. I kept checking on the sirfare to Fairbanks and home from Vancouver and the closer wer got, the higher the fare and the worse the flights were. Oh well, maybe next year.

The one time we did Alaska we went out of Seattle to get away from the higher fares. Good trip. I don't think I can talk Mary Lou into Alaska again. Too much rain for her. I liked it.

Good way to start the day Bob. I have to clean my golf clubs for a round this afternoon. Getting my game in shape for this coming Saturday. 2 of my sons and my best friend who just came up form Florida are playing what is called Bethpage Black. They have had several US Opens there including the 2009. So tough even Tiger couldn't break par there. But I suspect his mind was on that type of "playing around". No carts on this course, All walking. Tough on an old man. But I'll still beat my sons.

Hi all!

Looks like we're all settled into our new home!

Ann ~ that's too bad your Alaska cruise didn't come together. Those flights can be pricey! I'd love to go back to Alaska but return from Seattle. I have a cruise all picked out but nobody to go with. It's on HAL.

Bob ~ what's the problem with the hotel? I met up with a couple of people from the Canada Eh thread yesterday. It was so nice to see who I'd been chatting with

Grandpaul ~ enjoy your walk/golf game tomorrow! May the best man win!

Have a great weekend!

Got back about midnight last night from our golf adventure. To get a tee time there you have to get on the phone a week before and hope to get any time available. That's how busy this course is. We got a 2:39 PM tee time and it normally takes around 5 1/2 to play since you have to walk the whole thing. We got there early for lunch and we saw a time od 2:03 available so we got that. Now, if anyone tells you that Long Island is flat tell them they are way wrong. But maybe all the hills are on this particular course. Along with all the sand traps on the island. But I managed to par the last 2 holes to win. I had 3 pars all day. LOL. Anyway, we teed off 36 minutes ealrier than originally planned and we got to the 18th green and it started pouring. Lucky for us. Great day and a day of rest today. Maybe I'll watch the golf tournament on TV.
