Wednesday

Good Morning--
The big pool is all completed now.  The volleyball folks are very happy with the results and say the new surface feels great.  Work now begins at the north pool.

 
 

Looks like another BIG project to redo the entire lining.
 
 

Ha Ha.........you thought I forgot him this morning, didn't you??
I think he looks much happier this morning.  Almost a smile.
 

The back nine is coming along nicely.  What a pretty view with all the sprinklers sparkling in the sunshine.  

 
 

Same work continues on Cottonwood.  They're just further along this morning.
 
 

Here comes the new sidewalk to take you from Hole 13 across the street to Hole 14.
 

Welcome back to Steve and Ann Merriman!  Steve is another one of our "Urban Miners" that help with all our aluminum recycling.  Good to see them back again.  Kent Evans will enjoy having his fellow recycler back in action.
 

Time to repair the water channel and get ready for the bridge continuing Cole Circle.
 
 

This job with the compactor must take some strong arms.  I think it would jar my brain loose in about two seconds.  This thing bounces up and now with FORCE to tromp down the dirt surface.  
 

Hey......there's Fernando at the controls again.
 
 

New sidewalks are being formed to take us to the pickleball courts.
 

GREEN ballfield!!
 

The front nine of the course is undergoing the dusty reseeding process.  While it is "shorn" is a good time to drive the truck up there and finish trimming the palms.
 

All the palm and grass trimmings go over to our compost area instead of to the expensive landfill.   

 

Faustino again hard at work
.  

Say hello to Lillie Corbitt.  She is an assistant to Jim Dawson.  If you can't get to Jim because he is too busy, contact Lillie and she will try to help.  I'm sure she handles many of the "behind the scenes" projects around here.  


And last ...... but certainly not least in MY world..... say goodbye to our kitchen table for the season.  Why??  Because our residents are returning with computers full of viruses they've gathered over the summer and they bring them here for Don's tender loving care.  We now eat on TV trays in the living room because the table is usually stacked with computers.  

P.S.  Thank you to Ann Koistinen for the flowers!
Computers NEED a tune-up now and then just like any other appliance.  A tune-up improves the speed and security of your computer by removing unnecessary files and configuring security settings.  This will be an interesting season to watch Don's work load since Best Buy has moved out of town.  

So don't let your computer frustrate you.  Just get it tuned up and fixed.

P.S.  Computer club starts up on November 7.

Here is a "thank you" to Avis and Larry Gray for allowing us to perch on their patio every morning for pictures of the construction area.  Tell Avis she has cute shoes.


I received a clever email from a friend.  Thought I would share it with you.


 A 1st grade school teacher had 26 students in her class. She presented each child in her classroom the 1st half of a well-known proverb & asked them to come up with the remainder of the proverb. It's hard to believe these were actually done by first graders. Their insight may surprise you. While reading, keep in mind that these are first-graders, 6-year-olds, because the last one is a classic:


1.
Don't change horses
until they stop running.
2.
Strike while the
bug is close.
3.
It's always darkest before
Daylight Saving Time.
4.
Never underestimate the power of
termites.
5.
You can lead a horse to water but
how?
6.
Don't bite the hand that
looks dirty.
7.
No news is
impossible.
8.
A miss is as good as a
Mr.
9.
You can't teach an old dog new
math.
10.
If you lie down with dogs, you'll
stink in the morning.
11.
Love all, trust
me.
12.
The pen is mightier than the
pigs.
13.
An idle mind is
the best way to relax.
14.
Where there's smoke there's
pollution.
15.
Happy the bride who
gets all the presents.
16.
A penny saved is
not much.
17.
Two's company, three's
the Musketeers.
18.
Don't put off till tomorrow what
you put on to go to bed.
19.
Laugh and the whole world laughs with you, cry and
you have to blow your nose.
20.
There are none so blind as
Stevie Wonder.
21.
Children should be seen and not
spanked or grounded.
22.
If at first you don't succeed
get new batteries.
23.
You get out of something only what you
see in the picture on the box.
24.
When the blind lead the blind
get out of the way.
25.
A bird in the hand
is going to poop on you.
And the WINNER and last one!
26.
Better late than
pregnant.
