Lebanon, Oregon: Our devil-possessed entry steps retracted themselves sometime overnight. Now they will not extend! Every trick we know can not out-smart our entry steps. I'm not the sharpest crayon in the box, but figured-out a work-around:
We had a tee time mid-day, but pushed it back a few hours as Brian had yet to show. He knows the code to our bus door, so we didn't need to be here, we wanted to be here. Our "Stay & Play" package did not include a golf cart, so we had to cough up another $34 for a gas-powered shock-absorber-lacking hulk. It was such a rough ride over the cart paths, I think my panhard rod cracked. A very pretty course, with a lot of ponds very hungry for Dave's golf balls. My game continues to bite the big one, but two pars were scored today. I usually claim two pars in a month. Four hours on the links and the only photo captured was one of a thistle:
Brian had not visited our bus during our round of golf. Hmmm. At least the step is IN, instead of OUT... which makes driving much safer. DT has decided a visit to a home improvement store to purchase a three-step folding stool is next on the list. This dang step fails us so often, it's ridiculous we haven't been carrying a step stool over the past 13 years. Exiting is easy - slide out on your bottom from the lowest interior bus stairwell. Getting back inside is the issue.
Dinner tonight was Butter Chicken. Everything had been measured/chopped prior, so it came together very quickly. A very quiet evening, resting after 18 holes, and catching up on the Diamond League track meet from Monaco. Yes, His Serene Highness was sitting in the stands.
Until my next update, I remain, your stepless correspondent.
RV Park: Mallard Creek Golf & RV Resort - We are staying on a two-night "stay and play" package: two nights with full hook-ups, 50 amp pull through, and 18 holes for two players with cart. $240.
