It played slow due to group ahead of us and was a bit frustrating until we met up with Wills. Wills is a local guy who just couldn't let our experience be diminished by this type of behavior, so he call back to his buddies in the pro shop and the next thing you know the offending group ahead of us was told to let us through. We played one more hole with Wills before we let him go on alone, I mean you don't want to hold up an 82 year old man if he has someplace to be. I tell you Wills could still whack it pretty good and was mean around the green with those 12 & 13 woods. He doesn't like the irons much anymore but says that he could hit um in his day and we have know doubt he could. Our only regret is that we forgot to get a picture with Wills for the Blog - Anyhow if this ever gets out on the web far enough to reach back to Wills - thanks buddy for your help, we moved great the rest of the day and had a wonderful time. The Canyon course was just as nice as Sherling still lots of elevation changes - not as many trees but long and hard. All and all Cambrian Ride was another can't miss stop if you are planning a tour.

Shot of the Day(New Feature) - Hal had the honors with a chip in in front of an astonished Wills for a Birdie on Sherling # 4.
Weather - Mostly Sunny with a little Haze in the am. High around 90 Low around 65, and Humidity holding steady as tolerable. Tomorrow looks to be about the same. It looks like they need a little rain around here but lets hope they get all they need next week!
Food - We had to change the breakfast routine the as as we didn't have a Waffle House next door - we went to Cracker Barrel and it was OK but I tell you it's no Waffle House. That may have been the down fall in my game. I don't know but I am sticking with it.
We changed our routine and had a quick lunch before heading to Prattville - we went to a new place for both of us - Krystal Burger - we what an experience that was - White Castle in a a Southern Get Up - Its been a long time since the late night trips to the Castle but something is lost in the translation as we grow old and soft and most importantly SOBER.
It is what it is I guess - If you need a late night fix - this may be the place.
Thanks for the replies - I hope we keep getting them - and hear from the shy folks out there.
Love you all and again a special shout to my girls - Dad!
