Beautiful morning for golf in Jordan

Absolutely perfect weather today (*finally*) for walking 18 holes at Ridges at Sand Creek. Shot 87 from the whites and saw lots of turtles and birds also enjoying the nice weather

🫡 Monday Musings

Posted May 1, 2023

  • Somebody forgot to renew their Nitter cert yesterday
  • My Mastodon feed is much better after pruning a few people
  • The Wild are in good company – didn’t expect Boston and Colorado
  • This May Day wind is outrageous – the house is literally rattling
  • Hope Saint Paul decides to reopen Shepard Road soon

Minnesota golf in the 30s

Pic posted April 22, 2023

It was 32F with a little snow and wind at the beginning of our round today @ Gross National in Minneapolis – shot an 82 from the combo tees (with a “two-putt-max” rule in effect due to the rough and shaggy greens)

A walk in the (neighborhood) park

Spring and fall are kinda similar, but one leads to summer renewal and the other to a bleak frozen hellscape

First round of 2023 @ The Dwan

Pic posted April 15, 2023

Multiple days of sun and 80s, but we waited until it was cold and rainy to kick off the new golf season – very rusty 86 from the “Bluff” tees

It felt good to be out again (although my aerobic capacity needs to get better). Colby Lake still with a lot of ice, but melting fast

St. Paul Saints home opener ⚾️🥶

Pic posted April 6, 2023

Chased the sun around the stadium, wore my snow pants plus three layers (39F), solid mac & cheese dog, lots of sun and wind, debut of Mud Grant, costly errors + bad relief pitching = Saints lose to the Iowa Cubs, 12-11 @ CHS Field

Today’s walk was windy and brisk 🥶
