We spent a lot of time this last week at Mickey's House. In fact, we received our 5 year pin for volunteering at the Children's Miracle Network Golf Classic. The best part is that we have worked with the same "crew" for all 5 years. So, it really is a reunion each year to see each other again.
The Trout and I drive a wagon/cart which we fill with cases of bottled water and bags of ice. We divide the golf course into sections and deliver the water and ice to the tee boxes in our section throughout the day. The ice and water is only for the golfers and caddies, so we do get up close to watch some golf. That is the very best part!!
Readers have been asking me how the Trout is doing. He is doing quite well, seven weeks out from surgery. In fact, he was lifting the ice and water without problems so he is definitely on the mend. The difficult part is that he will probably have to wait another seven weeks or so until he can swing a golf club, but we are thankful he is feeling so well.
We are glad to be back in Florida, because the weather is gorgeous. I love this time of year when you can turn off the A/C, open the windows and let the cool air flow through. After living over 50 years in the Midwest, it is so refreshing to enjoy warmer falls and winter. Yes, we do cheat and get out of Florida in the heat of the summer, but that is what retirement is all about.
