seriously sunny super sunday ...

Sunday, as loyal Diatribe readers know, is golf day. Every Sunday (well, every Sunday when it's possible), I get to play golf with my pare', S, and his son, one of my godsons, A.

This Sunday was no different, thankfully.

I actually woke up a little bit early and got to the course early, so I could indulge in coffee, a breakfast sandwich (egg, bacon and cheese on a bagel-like roll) and the Sunday crossword. Soon enough, S and A showed up and we hit the links.

click on the photos for bigger versions!!

This was the view from the first tee. Look at that sky. Wonderfully sunny, bright, blue and strewn with loverly clouds. And yes, the great weather held out all during our round, and for the rest of the day, as a matter of fact. :)

This is kind of a cool pic of a shady tree in front of the boonies. Unfortunately, the many little yellow butterflies that were flittering about aren't evident in the photo. But they were there, dammit!

I didn't have a great day, but not a bad one either. I pretty much shot bogey after bogey, finishing up with a 93, which is decent for me. No great standout shots, but no really hellaciously ugly ones either.

After that, it was home for a shower and a little bit of relaxing, then out to get some errands done. Yep, SUNDAY errands!

Got a shave and a shave (head and face, freakazoids!) and a nice, relaxing neck and shoulder massage at the barbor shop. Then to Blockbuster to return DVDs and check out a couple of new ones. Then to the grocery store to pick up a few things, but also to drop off my power and water bills at the in-store bank ... and some entries for a $25,000 prize thing the store has going on that also features three shopping sprees at one of the bigger stores in the chain. Wish me luck!

Then home again to put groceries away, check e-mail and watch a little SportsCenter, then into the office for about a half hour to get some adminstrative stuff done that the boss wants first thing in the morning. Easier/better for me to do it Sunday evening than getting my lazy ass up early and then into work to do it ... trust me!

Then home ... dinner ... a little TV (caught part of "Jericho" after an enthusiastic review of the show by My Favorite Person) ... and then ... well ... here.

So you mention Jericho and never say if you enjoyed it or not? ~HUFF~ Go to the website as it seems that they are going to have a couple of different story lines on this show. I swear the part with the dead birds kinda grossed me out.

So what did you think of the whole juice box straw incident?? When the little boy asked "where did you learn to do that?" I half expected him to say McGuyver or something equally as corny...~chuckle~

ell: thanks hon ... and you need to post soon!

chrissie: thanks, baby ... and what can I buy you from a grocery story? milk? eggs? LOL

grainne: was I supposed to write a review? LOL ... and those tracheotomies are tricky ... one wrong cut and dead girl.
