Since we were the first couple to leave the golf course and head home, we missed the final announcement of who won 1st, 2nd and 3rd places for the second day of play. Mr. Snoots wanted to get home and watch the final round of PGA golf on TV, so we hit the road as soon as we were done with our rounds.
As it turned out, my partner and I actually won Second Place, which was still good for me. We had such a wonderful time. As a matter of fact, Mr. Snoots even won some money this year. He had the youngest woman (who is on a collegiate golf team) as his partner on Saturday, which made him yet another happy camper. They won 3rd place on Saturday, which was an outstanding treat!
As hot and sunny as the day had been, we ran into a dark gray Wall of Thunderstorms on our 3 hour drive home. It was so bad I was more than tempted to pull over, especially after seeing a semi-truck (Fed-Ex) had jack-knifed in the center median of I-20, surrounded by rescue teams and ambulances. I didn't dare steal a look as we passed.
It has been raining ever since we arrived home....
A neighbor tells me he saw Fernando & Felicia Fox in his front yard over the weekend, which means at least they are still in the hood. Animals must really have keen instincts because she chose the right year to not be in our garden. Apparently, it rained all weekend and has been raining ever since, so we're once again experiencing flooding around the property.
The next event coming up is The Firecracker golf tournament at our golf club this weekend. It's a 3 day tourney with a different format for each day. The first 2 days are a Scramble and then a Shamble and the last day you're on your own. Since you have a choice, I'm just playing the first 2 days. I'm still aching from last weekend's tournament in Baird, Texas....
