October, 2012, in Indian Wells, California

Karen participated in a panel and gave a talk at a health care convention in Indian Wells, CA, which is next to Palm Springs. I was fortunate enough to travel with her, and we had a great time there, and then went from that desert location to the central coast and visited my sister at her home in Carpenteria, near Santa Barbara.

While Karen “slaved away” at her meeting, I played golf at Mission Hills Country Club in Palm Springs, then twice at the Indian Wells courses. It was about 102º while I played, but the courses were beautiful, as was the scenery of the area (desert and mountains in the distance). After golf, I lounged by or in the massive pool, served with a cool drink and awaited that evening’s fine dinner. Tough life, eh?
