Driving to Santa Barbara

Next week I am driving to Santa Barbara to visit with my Uncle Seymour and Aunt Shirley. The last time that I visited there was in May, 2014, not too long past my open heart surgery.

I took the Amtrak train at that time instead of driving, because I was still recovering from the surgery. Also, my overall physical condition was a little weak. Since that time, my physical strength has improved a lot! I exercise on the machines at the YMCA a minimum of two times a week. And, I go play golf about two times a week too.

Golf and exercise
I am very happy about my exercising and golf playing. I am able to now do things that I could not do before. For example, I can now lift up my electric bike and put it into a car. No way did I have the strength several months ago to manage lifting the bike.

By the way. My golf score at the Mount Woodson course this week was 115. I know that 115 is really not a good score. But when I first began to golf in the middle of last year, my score was around 150.

    1. Hi Bill,
      I am using a cart. My feeling is that it would not be fair to those playing golf with me because I walk kind of slow.

    1. Hi Betty,
      Weng has not posted to her blog since February, 2013.

      I talked on the phone with Weng about four months ago. At that time she was doing OK.
