22/03/2011 - Well it's off to Casablanca Golf Course for an early morning tee off. Of course with our luck there has been a frost delay - so our tee of time is delayed by about half an hour. This is a lovely course, but one which as claimed a few of my golf balls - not sure how the Big Fella went - but he played really well and we had a great day. Yep no surprise to anyone the Big Fella whipped my butt.
24/03/2011 - Today is the day that the Big Fella is playing Wolf Creek - I've decided that my money would be better spent signing up and playing in the Slot Tournament at the Casino - a first for me. It costs $20.00 to enter for 3 time slots between 11:00 and 4:30. I'm registered at 12:00, 12:20 and 12:40. Well of course registration was at 10:00 so I had two hours to spare - needless to say I go and play the pokies - which of course costs me a lot more than the $20.00 - it could end up being an expensive day. Well 12:00 finally came and I entered the room which has 30 Poker (Slot) machines set up, the idea is to get as many credits as you can within 10 mins - all I can say is that I've never seen so many people hit their buttons so quickly - it was a real mad house - my right hand / arm got sore so I had to change over. It was a bit of fun - but something that I don't think I will do again - even though it was definitely cheaper than being out on the floor - or for that matter playing wolf creek. The Big Fella came home with a big smile on his face - he had a great day and was really amazed by the golf course.
25/03/2011 - Off to Palms Golf Course. Well for me the weather that I hate the most to play golf in is the wind - and the wind is swirling around at up to 60km's per hour. Not good for my golf - I know I'm going to be in big trouble. After about 7 holes - Cornelia has decided that enough is enough it is now starting to rain as well. The Big Fella, myself and Rick have decided to continue - which we were glad that we did - because the wind did die down on the back nine and the rain stopped. Rick is a real athlete and we found out during our golf that he was an Olympian ski jumper, received a football scholarship for uni and played high level baseball. Of course even with the weather change this didn't help my golf - even though if I was playing well I couldn't beat the Big Fella - even with the weather he had a great round and finished up only 5 over with 37 putts - he had a fantastic round and really played well - I think I need to reconsider these bets. One of the things that I did enjoy about the golf though is the little chipmunks and many many rabbits around the course - of course the Big Fella lets me know that I'm not suppose to feed the chipmunks - but hey the apple core slipped out of my hand.
26/03/2011 - My usual routine is to wake up in the morning - go for a walk, come back have a look at our email / facebook. Well the first email that I notice is one form Buy.com thanking us for the purchase of a Bushnell Pro 1600 Slope Edition Rangefinder - the Big Fella has been busy last night. Of course when I talk to him about it he says that he bought it for me - yeah right - as if I'm going to believe that. We decided to go for a drive up to St George, Utah - one to have a look around and then another to see if I can buy a pair of golf shoes, I've decided that if we are going to keep playing golf - I need to get a pair of golf shoes rather than playing in my runners. Of course the Big Fella already has a pair (maybe this will help my golf - I doubt it - but I've got to try everything). The drive up to St George is a lovely drive - unfortunately after going to about 4 different golf stores, I have no luck trying to get a pair to fit me - no wide sizes. As luck would have it on our drive back to Mesquite, we passed a golf shop and decided to turn around and go back to it - lucky that we did as I finally found a pair of shoes that would fit.
27/03/2011 - It's time for a rest day - we are staying home to watch the final round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational Golf Tournament.
06/04/2011 - The one problem was that Dave and I had booked Stubbie in for a service and to get a service on the Propane at 8:00am. So of course we needed to be up early to drive her over to CampingWorld. We had originally planned on not hooking Shooter up to Stubbie – but when we both woke up (after the alarm went off for a little while) at around 6:00am we were a bit fuzzy so decided to hook Shooter up so we would both be in Stubbie. Well all I can say was that it was a long day – they didn’t finish with the Propane until around 2:00pm –by this time we had both had enough of sitting in the waiting room and were a little bit tired. We still a 3 hour drive in front of us to get to Parker Dam. It was a long drive for me, as when Dave is tired – he hands the wheel over to me – so needless to say I did most of the driving – at one stage I said to the Big Fella to have another sleep, in which he replied that I must be getting tired and that he would stay awake – well within 30 seconds I didn’t need to look over to see that he was sleeping – he was snoring. We arrived at the RV Park at Parker set-up, had some dinner and then we both went to bed early.
