After looking at the predicted temperatures to our west, the OFM Teams extended our stay here at Point Mallard until Aug 6. We are looking at temps in the low to mid nineties around here and a little more west they are looking at triple digit temps. This OFM Teams prefer to stay out of triple digit temps. On top of that this area is pretty nice to visit. We will not mention the new grandkid just a few miles away.A strong migraine hit late last night to mess up the plans for today. The Ofm went calling anyway and got in a small chance to touch Gavin but the headache was too much for him. He spent most of the day horizontal in his bed being very lazy.
Late in the evening the OFM got up and ate a little supper. Then he went over to the local golf course to see if he could do a little practicing or goofing off in the vertical position.He could and did practice very gently. The golf course has some excellent practice facilities.
The pitching and chipping green is really good. The sand bunker is well designed and gives you a chance to practice all types of bunker shots. Your chipping and pitching will be tested to the maximum around this practice green. Regular application of intelligent practice here should help your scores improve. The putting green is just as excellent with all sorts of breaking puts to practice. However it was only an hour before the wimp OFM had to quit and head for the Castle to rest.There are three more pictures taken yesterday along the walking trail. The first one is a view of Flint Creek where it joins the Tennessee River.
The next is of some of the pretty white flowers growing alongside the trail.
And last are some reflections on the water of a slough off Flint Creek. That was some very still water there.
The ex-wife and her entourage of miscellaneous folks are in town for their time with grandson Gavin. The OFM will be staying clear for the week they are here. Then the OFM Grandpa-ing Team will get back to work. The Teams are sure they can handle it, but that means a whole week of amusing the OFM as the Teams work diligently on trying to have tooooo much fun. TheOFM.
