January 9, 2018 – Movie and Dinner

Tuesday, January 9, 2018

Weather – About 45º.  Cloudy with wet ground conditions.  Little wind.


  • Golf 18
  • Pick up a birthday cake for Dad’s birthday
  • Movie in Poulsbo at 3:00
  • Dinner after the movie
  • “Game of Thrones – Season 2, Disk 4”


Mike wanted to solve some golf problems so requested instead of an inside workout that we play a round of golf to sort out some of those things.  There were practically no other golfers at the course when we got there around 8:30.  We checked in a got to the 1st tee.  Our first hole was pretty disappointing so we walked back and started over again.  From there on, Elaine’s golf was pretty normal and steady.  Mike’s was not looking too good.  Mike had bad holes on 3, 4, and 5.  After that it seemed to settle down.  Elaine had an OK score of 56 on the front 9.  Mike had a sub-standard 47.

On the back nine, Mike improved and parred 11, 12, 15, and 18.  Also, hit a good hybrid to the back pin on 17 and made a 5 foot birdie.  (Followed by Fireball Birdie Juice)

Gained some insights into lining up better for golf shots.

Birthday Cake

Dropped by Central Market in Poulsbo for a birthday cake.  Single-layer German Chocolate.  Bakery put writing on the cake for us.


Regal Cinemas in Poulsbo.  Watched “Darkest Hour” a movie about when Winston Churchill became Prime Minister of Great Britain and how he led his country during the time when Germany was threatening to invade Great Britain.  A focal point was the extraction of British Army troops by a civilian fleet from the French port of Dunkirk.  Interesting with good characterizations.


Mexican dinner at “La Costa” Restaurant in Poulsbo.  Margaritas were pretty weak and tasteless.  Good food though. Chicken fajita burrito and chicken macho burrito.  Plenty to eat.  Service was OK, although it was strange how the staff seemed to interchange with each other throughout our dinner.
