Well, we are halfway through our time here in Palm Springs and are having a fabulous time. There have been 2 days that were not so great and the rest of the time the weather has been outstanding - averaging around 80 degrees every day.

Three of this years group are golfers so we've been splitting our time between golfing and lying around the pool. Other years, some of us have spent too much time on the golf course and not enough by the pool so that has been remedied this year. Yesterday we played at the Doral Course at Desert Princess. I had a wonderful round and celebrated a couple of golfing firsts - I had my best round ever and I broke 100 - I came in with 99 .....woooohooo! Now that I've done it once, I know I can do it again so I have a goal to work towards.

We've made numerous trips to the casino - so far we've only gone to the Spa Casino which is quite close to the house. I did manage to win a $500 jackpot on the nickle machines but other than that, the casino has come out ahead. Well you know what they say - it's not hard to win money at the casino, it's just hard to get out the casino with the money you've won.

Today is a pool day - I'm starting to get "owl eyes", those white circles around the eyes from the sunglasses. So today the plan is to try to lose the sunglasses for awhile and get a tan happening around the eyes. If all else fails, I'll have to purchase some of that sunless tanning cream to even out the tan. Lifes tough isn't it?
