Pessimist.

If you don't get hit in the head with an errant golf ball you will live to see it.

BTW, the one time I got hit on the forearm while mowing the grass I was ready to kill someone.

I do not miss the course and do not mind what it cost and costs to keep it it green space.

My brother in law's place in Tucson had a nice golf course behind their property, which was let go (management issues? ). Then, there was talk of keeping it, so someone (don't know who or what organization) at least maintained the greens in case it will go back to being an active course, but now it might be just development.

Who knows what the heck is going on with anything these days.

In our case the HOA voted to buy the land, place a deed restriction banning future development on most of it and maintain it as greenspace. A very small portion will be sold for development to recoup about half the purchase price.

I know nothing about the golf course business but I don't see any path leading to profit for any seasonal business that pays that much for their business property.

I guess it depends on where that golf course is located. In AZ, golf is a year-round business and most, if not all courses, would be open 12 months of the year.

Where you are situated, if a course does remain open long enough, only the hard-core players will play in the winter. They are truly a wacky bunch though.

Here, some courses remain open into November - or till the first significant snowfall occurs.

I would guess about 10 months a year here.

I wore myself out yesterday. The morning shower precludes tilling the mater bed and probably anything else outside as storms are due to arrive in the early PM.

Did you manage to get the fence repairs done?

Fence panels repaired. Gate adjusted (it was sagging), new hardware and gate support added.

The fence contractor, who did everyone's fences on the street (it was a new subdivision) didn't dig deep enough for the posts (6x6" posts). A lot of them have heaved and need either replacing, or the panels taken off and reattached on level.

I've just gone outside to bring in the empty trash/recycle containers. It's grey, windy and 12C. I'll bet some of those idiot golfers are actually out today. Smh.

Also, the apparently "critter-proof" food recycle containers, are easily opened by the local racoon contingent here.

It's grey and not so windy here. More rain on the way. But, maybe a couple of nice cooler days ahead.

Unless it pours overnight, I should still be able to till the well drained mater bed.

Another down day on the markets. All last week's gains are gone. I'm going wager the China tariff threats are responsible - again.

Specifically the lack of a resolution either way is the root cause. Do them or don't and the market will go on with losers and winners. The market can not tolerate uncertainty and stagnates when it exists.

Only about a 2% across the board loss with some much larger losers, other just stagnant, between 4/15 and 5/9 but it sure makes for a negative attitude.

Moving on:
3 different weather apps checked for today none of which agree. After coffee I'm going outside and doing my personal forecast.

That can work the best. I look outside. I see clouds and rain.

I'm betting the forecast is clouds and rain.

Finally getting to swap tires on the wife's car today. The snow tires will melt if I leave them on any longer.

That is one bonus for living in the high south. We never have more than a few days per winter where an anything other than an all season radial is required.

Smart little buggers aren't they! They probably open the bear proof ones also.

Our local racoons are a healthy looking lot. They look well fed - especially overnight on Wednesdays.

Very nice of you to join us. I bet LMD will ship you one of the critters if you want it.

Those critters can be nasty! They seem docile from a distance, but when you get closer to them, or they to you, it's freak-out time!

Yep. I've seen a coon hound or two who got to close to them and lost the fight. It takes a pack of dogs to put one down.

The ones who live in the state parks and close to the cabins are somewhat more tame because they beg food from the tourists.

There have been articles in a local news paper noting hundreds of them near the border have rabies.

CNN would say they caught it from Trump.


Another rainy day , drizzle really.


I overdid it yesterday. A local farm sells well composted stall cleanings but only on Saturday and Sunday. I had to unload about half of it before I could trust the 3rd wheel on the trailer jack to support the rest for the roll into the garage. 4 large wheelbarrows full that needed dumping into a raised bed 2+ tall. That was the hard part.

That stuff is so good and drains well I may be able to till it in later today.

Yes, they would say that for sure.

Cloudy and cool here (like the last 14 or so days), but there's a glimmer of light on the horizon about 7 days out - sunny and warm. I'll believe it when it happens - if it happens.

I have an idea what you are referring to, but am not really sure what it is.
