This was our coldest day in January so far - down to only +7C this morning and mostly cloudy so it didn't warm up very quickly although it did get to +20C briefly in the afternoon before cooling quickly as the sun went down (before 5 o'clock). Fortunately, the wind was down to a light breeze today. The golfers resumed play at 7:30 AM and managed to finish the tournament in late twilight this evening.
The Den Parents went to St. Margaret's Episcopal Church again this morning. At breakfast in the fellowship hall after the service they met two friendly couples - one from Manitoba, and one from Ohio. We bears overheard talk of locations to stay and contact people who knew about accommodation for "next year". We even got to visit one couple's residence and they gave us some lemons from their backyard and we gave them a copy of our book. [They got the better deal!] But, we're excited! Maybe we can do this again - especially if we can sell over 10,000 copies of our book!?
We did some shopping and came home via the I-10 freeway. Then we all watched the conclusion of the golf tournament on TV. The Den Parents found it interesting to watch the players on a course they had just visited a couple of days ago, and some of the players they had watched were among the leaders. Even more exciting was that Johnson Wagner tied for second. He had been at a table just behind the Den Parents when they went out for their Anniversary Dinner on Friday night. He is recognizable by his mustache which he has grown since his official PGA photo was taken. See these videos taken today!
Tonight, the temperature has dropped already to +13C so we are all at home - watching our fireplace!
[Note: the coldest temperature ever recorded here was minus 7C in January of 1937 - brrr.]
