This is another one of those blogs which could fit into more than one category; so, as was the case last time, I've opted for 'Miscellaneous'.
Evidently, during my absense, the UK has been experiencing a spell of warm weather. Good for them - but, I doubt if it will have been as warm as it has been here, today - nearly 100 degrees (in old money) apparently. Great weather for doing nothing - but, not too comfortable for the likes of golf, for example.
Not long after arriving, on Friday, Lloyd kitted me out with a half-set of clubs and took me to the practice ground at his golf club. That seemed to work OK; so, yesterday, we met up with some friends of his and I managed nine holes without too much trouble. Not bad after eighteen months away from the game, I thought. What's more, I completed the game using the same ball with which I had started!!
Last night, we went to his local bar - where, amongst several others, I met the owner. Evidently, he's a keen golfer and we arranged to meet up for a game this afternoon. However, as I mentioned earlier, it's very hot; so, I chickened out - electing to walk to the Post Office which is on the other side of town.
On the way, I saw this sign - which amused me.....
Having enjoyed the walk to the Post Office, in a rather ill-judged display of bravado, I decided to take the scenic (but, lengthy) way back to the town - and, in so doing, arrived back at Lloyd's place soaked to the skin in sweat and absolutely knackered. Hopefully, the hot bath I've just had will help ease the pain.
