Torrey Pines

We got up this morning to light showers and cooler than usual temperatures. But how can one complain about calm, cloudy, mid-sixties weather? I guess one could, but one would get no sympathy from anyone living in the northern tier where they’re getting yards of snow and temps down under.

We sat around this morning waiting for Rick from Sit Well Upholstery to come pick up our two rocker/glider chairs. A little pricey but the chairs are La-Z-Boys and cheaper to reupholster than to replace. Squeakie doesn’t know what to do now that her favorite place to sleep is gone. I guess she’ll just to have to find another favorite place until Rick brings the chairs back.

This afternoon, we watched the golf at Torrey Pines in San Diego, Tiger and the boys playing the two courses there. It was nice to see the 2013 tour get under way again. I don’t know how many more tours I have in me, so each one is now extra special. Tiger played the tougher, longer south course and looked very good except for a few putting errors. I really hope he can get back on track this year. The most striking thing about him is his chiseled look. I don’t think I’ve seen any athlete look more fit than Tiger. And speaking of fit, the shots of the coastline there were simply spectacular—the Pacific crashing onto the beaches below the golf course, the skies with cluster clouds looking unrealistically beautiful, the southern California trees and plants framing each camera shot. For those who missed the coverage, tune in tomorrow to see what I’m talking about. You don’t have to be a golf fan to appreciate the beauty of the camera coverage.
