Photo Finish Friday: Colbert Hills

Ha roo, pups and cool cats!  You may have heard me and Dave mention before that we live just across Little Kitten Creek from Colbert Hills Golf Course.  It's the area you see in our sunset photos!  Anyway, Mom and I took a little trip over there yesterday, and I thought I'd share the pix with you today for Photo Finish Friday!  Ready to take a look?  Let's go!

"Colbert Hills Drive!  Turn here, Mom!"

That may seem obvious, but I take my navigation duties seriously.  Especially when Mom is driving.  A-hem.

We had a good look around when we got up there:

There were all kinds of cool things to see!

"Oh, cool!"

That's the Colbert Hills clubhouse in the background.  There's a nice restaurant in there called "Colbert's". Jim Colbert is a famous PGA golfer - and a K-State grad!  (Go, 'Cats!)  My dad met him one time when he was having a meal in the restaurant and said he was a very nice guy.  Anyone OK in my dad's book is OK with me!  I wondered if he was around ... I'd like to meet him!

"Let's go look for Mr. Jim Colbert, Mom!"

We looked over by the indoor practice facility for the KSU golf team first:

"Ha roo?!?  Do you know where Mr. Jim Colbert is?"

"Really?  Over there?  Thanks!"

You aren't going to believe this - but I found him!  Check out these pix:

"Ha roo, Mr. Colbert!  I'm Zim!"

"Did you drop something?"

"I didn't find it.  Oh, no, trust me.
If you dropped something in there, I would have snarfed it up found it!"

"We all have our talents, Mr. C!  You've got golf, I've got the gift of a highly sensitive snooter!"

It was really cool meeting him.  Kind of a quiet guy; didn't make any sudden moves.  I like that in people.

We did a little more exploring...

"We should put a dry creek bed like this in our yard, Mom!"

I had a great time.  Mom said we can go back again soon.  Maybe my new friend Mr. Jim Colbert will be there next time, too!

Happy Friday, everyone!

Play bows,
Zim

  3. What a finish to the week Zim. I bet he was so quiet cuz he was in awe that he was in the presence of the Zim Master. You are a legend, even in my part of the world. Have a beautiful weekend.

  5. That looks super fun! He is a really nice guy. I think Star would like him b/c she's kinda shy and likes when people move slowly.

  9. We're glad you got to meet Jim Colbert Zim! That's pretty cool! We noticed that your mom's car was the only car there. Everyone must have such big clubs they need a truck or SUV to golf there.
