Barb & I had a very nice Christmas even if we were alone in the maintenance compound of the golf course. We managed to sleep in till 9 then raced down to the ‘tree’ to see what Santa left us! After our traditional rum and eggnog, we had a late breakfast and kicked back. We had planned to gather pine needles and find a Geocache in the state park but it started to rain and didn’t stop until late in the evening – at least it’s not snow! So we fired up the TV and watched some Christmas shows and prepared our turkey dinner. A wonderful time it was!
We woke up on Boxing Day to snow flurries!! Yes, that’s correct – snow flurries! Yuck! So another laid back day, Barb working on her videos and me scanning more photos of times past.
Slowly, the weather is warming and we finally got all the bird houses painted and re-mounted on their pole on the golf course. Of course, we did not mark where we took the bird houses from so when we went back out to put them back, our senior memories …. Well you get the picture! We put the bird houses up in the morning and golfed after lunch! A perfect arrangement!
We have learned that the next volunteers are coming in on Jan 1 so we have to vacate by then. Jim & Lydia have suggested we get together for New Years celebrations so we’re making plans for that. Unfortunately, they were snowed in on the mountain and their departure from there is up in the air so we’re all playing it by ear!
Our plans are set, we’re meeting up with Jim & Lydia at Wanee Lake Country Club and RV Park in Ashburn, Ga for more golf, friendship and of course, food and beverages! We’re kinda sad to be leaving Meadow Links as the weather is warming and we would like to have played a few more rounds. But that can be said for most good things, you always want more!
We arrived at Wanee Lake before our friends and set up. The reception was very friendly, the manager suggested we take a cart out and tour the course while we are waiting. Jim & Lydia arrived about an hour after they expected to because of a traffic jam on I-75! Once here, we hugged and greeted each other as if we had not seen them since ‘for ever’! We had dinner then an evening of catch up on their ‘white’ Christmas in Atlanta – first one in over 100 years! They could not go back home as the mountain was closed due to snow and ice!
A great time and we hope ya’ll had a nice New Year too.
