There are just four days left on this end of the bookend before going to California. Will be there for two months on a variety of missions. One is to get some final paperwork done for a real estate deal that started 18 months ago. Once completed, its going to be clear sailing for a long long time. Two months is an eternity for a new father however so I value every precious moment I can spend with Marina these last few days here. We plan on using Line and Line video a lot to stay in touch, but its not quite the same as being together physically.
Next week, I will be working as a volunteer at the Cadillac Match Play Golf Championships in the city. Driving disabled patrons to their seats and doing general transport work is the only way to work in a golf tournament. You have an open ticket to roam the entire gold course in a golf cart and just wait for assignments as they come up. During the US Open, I was stuck inside all the time at the gift shop being a cashier. You can never tell on this kind of assignment what comes up. For example, about five years ago, I had both Tiger Woods and the Commissioner of the PGA Tour as my passengers - I couldn't help thinking here are these two billion dollar people in my golf cart ... good thing I didn't screw up driving as I could have changed the course of history (maybe for the better?).
I will also be participating in a pilgrimage to Italy next month. Never been to that part of Europe so it should be very exciting. More on that as it gets closer.
|This was at 8AM this morning - heat index already at 95F at airport|
Lastly, as usual, there is a flurry of activity getting things ready for my trip. Have to do some more shopping and want to get in some last minute activities before I go back. Unfortunately the mango's weather has started to get really hot and sticky. Supposed to be 98F in the mango today and my weather station is showing 79% humidity. If it stays that way, people are going to die today of heat stroke because the heat index is over 142F.
I did go out to the archery range yesterday to do some shooting with my new bow. It performed extremely well and with a change that I made to the string and some padding, the bow is almost silent when I shoot my arrows. It was hot, but not as bad as its supposed to be today. Its not a good time to be outdoors in the mango today.
