March 10, 2009

Today I played golf with Steve and Mike at Andalusia Country Club in La Quinta, CA. It was a beautiful day, a beautiful course (a Reese Jones designed course) and great companionship. Mike, our host, is by the far the best golfer of the three of us and he won all of the money. We had a nice leisurely lunch on the club patio after golf. On the last hole I hit a ball in the water on my third shot to the par five hole. The ball was only half submerged and I almost made the manly decision to take my shoes off and hit it out of the lake. However, I came to my senses and took a penalty drop and ultimately made a 20 foot put for a bogey and tied the hole.

Tonight we had cocktails and dinner with friends Kent and Nedra, Steve and Cathy and new friends Stephanie and Scott at the Lavender Bistro, in La Quinta, CA.
