Kathryn Pfeffer fishing in Canada

Reggie Wegman

Remember the mornings we were all complaining how cold it was? We had long pants on, hats, gloves, and scarves. Burr, it’s too cold for Arizona—hot coffee and cocoa in our drink jugs.

Those days are gone for a few months, but they will be back. We now trudge along with jugs full of ice, cold towels, and a change of golf gloves. Be careful out there with the heat. Heat exhaustion comes on pretty quickly. Heat exhaustion is less dangerous than heat stroke. Heat stroke is a very dangerous state, so if you or one in your foursome is not looking too great, quit, get inside, and cool down with cool water and some cool towels. If someone is unable to cool down, it may be heat stroke. You must dial 911. It is not worth finishing the round if you wind up in the ER.

Our gals are enjoying their time in cooler climes. Judy King is in Vernon, BC, Predator Ridge, which is a resort community. They are playing golf a few times a week and enjoying the family. She will be back with us at the end of the summer.

Lynn and Pam are dealing with some family problems in California. Keep them in your prayers and thoughts.

Kathryn Pfeffer and hubby are in Central Canada at their summer home. They are doing lots of fishing and having them for dinner. They have not been affected by the smoke from the wildfires.

The usuals are out on the golf course: Susan, Linda, Julie, Judy, Karen, Joyce, Shirley, Kathy, Rachel, Sue, and some others. We all deserve a medal or a psychiatric evaluation, maybe both. We are hearty souls and will not be deterred by heat.

Please let me know how much fun you are having traveling or just hanging out at your summer place, and send a picture, too!
