Thoughts While ShavingEaster Monday … some go back to work … some off for another day…

Masters golf tournament completed in 4 days, despite the rain and wind. The winner … John Rahm … picked up $3,240,000 in prize money and a green jacket.
Others in their order of finish…
2nd place (tie), Brooks Koepka & Phil Mickelson … $1,584,000 each
4th, 5th and 6th (tie), Russell Henley, Patrick Reed and Jordan Spieth … about $744,000 each … Not bad for 4 days of hard work in a storm…
The top amateur was Sam Bennett, came up just short of an exemption for next year … Pros tied with him at 2-under collected $261,000 … As an amateur, his take home pay was $0 … He obviously has a bright future ahead…

Question … How much does a caddy make? … not enough … Normally negotiated between golfer and caddy.

Rainfall from Thursday thru Sunday in Bladen County totaled just over 2.5 inches … recorded at the Curt Brown Airport, Elizabethtown … Hopefully over for a few days…

42 degrees at 4 a.m. today (Monday) … A flood watch is in effect thru Wednesday night in some areas of the county…

Sunny today, with a high near 65 and windy, gusts in the 21 mph range. Patchy frost tonight after 5 a.m., Otherwise, sunny with a high near 72. Thursday’s high near 80.

This Hester family adding to our family … granddaughter will marry long time boyfriend later this month … and grandson and his bride expecting a 2nd … so we will become great-grand parents, 2nd time … exciting times…
