      It’s fantastic. Got up to about 17 today. Didn’t golf, but decided to go skiing again at our world class mountain which is only about an hour away. Tomorrow light rain, but back up to 17 on Sunday for a nice early Easter round. So “how’s the snow and dump of a town?”…come on – the whole “golf?” thing or “your city sucks?”. You can do better than that. Although, from a person with a poo emoji head, I’m not so sure. I like the fact that you gave yourself a cheers though…well played.
