Pickleball Sniffles

Another chilly night here in Palm Desert….not too far above freezing and only into the mid 50sF today….ugh.  A bunch of us went out to Augustine Casino in Coachella for their lobster buffet dinner last night.  It was a pretty good feed with no shortage of lobster, filet mignon, duck a l’orange, among many other great entrees.  I just have to mention than one person in our party managed to scoff eight (8) lobster tails….and no it wasn’t me!  It was Chris and my first visit so we got the new patron guest card which gave us $5 in casino bucks and also $5 of each of our buffet meals.  It was a fun night.  I think we even left with $10 of their cash afterwards. Woohoo!

The ladies went shopping today.  Looks like I’m nursing a cold.  I could feel it starting while at the casino last night and I was pretty stuffed up by this morning.  Nothing too serious but enough to put me off pickleball for the morning at least.  I was feeling better after lunch and there were still some diehards batting the ball around, so I grabbed a few photos and then just had to play a bit as well.  I was bundled up warmly and hopefully I sweated out most of it.

    So THAT is pickleball…Looks like a cross between ping pong and tennis…..
    A lobster buffet sounds like a dream to me…I would be dripping butter and claws~~~
