Photo detail

After arriving at The Rising Sun Clubhouse and a cup of coffee, Jim Tade participates in his usual routine of cleaning the floors before too many other members arrive. Tade usually spends almost exactly an hour each morning at the clubhouse and sticks to himself most of the time. He occasionally breaks out in a line or two of song from his time in the U.S. Navy.
