  1. I have one of those and I wet it before I play and it's a lot cooler than a regular hat.
  2. I retired at the end of 2020 and my wife, and I moved into a smaller place to be near my daughter, son-in-law, and grandkids. I’m not on a golf course, but close to one and I’m a mere 829 steps away the family. I’m in a smaller house with a workshop in the back for woodturning, my other hobby. Moving required downsizing after being in a place for 20+ years and it was tough. It was for me anyway. I went through what I had and separated what I had to keep, then went through what I had to keep two or three times until I had less and less stuff. I still miss some things, power tools mainly, but I can’t say I miss much. Best of luck downsizing, it’s a tough task, but sounds like it will be worth it.
  3. The child and adult versions are the same except for the dosage amount. But, a doctor has to prescribe an Epipen. I've been stung since I started carrying an Epipen, though not in the torso or chest. I won't use it just because of a sting, only if my throat starts to swell and blocks my airway.
  4. I carry the Epipen just for swelling and respiratory issues. My doc said if I ever needed to use it to lay down, hopefully somewhere somewhat soft, and jab myself. I've carried the Epipen for 20+ years and only once did I have to get ready to stick myself and thankfully I did not have to use it.
  5. Talk to your doctor. The Epipen is prescribed, so you would need doctor involvement anyway.
  6. I've used Benadryl for fire ant bites, but Benadryl won't do anything for me for bee\wasps stings. I swell immediately. My doc said if I get stung anywhere from the sternum to the top of the head to be prepared to use the Epipen.
  7. I've never been stung in the ear by a yellow jacket, and that's gotta hurt. But I was stung in the foot and ended up in the ER. Now I carry an Epipen and I keep three in my golf bag.
  8. So, Einstein is taking his morning stroll around heaven and meets someone, and asks aren’t you new here? And the guy replies yes, I am. Einstein asked what he did before on earth and the guy said he was a nuclear physicist. Einstein said that sounds like a very interesting job we will have to discuss it over lunch one day. The next day on his morning stroll Einstein meets someone else new and asked what that person did. The person replies he ran the nuclear medicine wing at John Hopkins hospital. Einstein said I’d love to hear all about your job and what was involved, we can discuss it over lunch one day. One the next stroll Einstein meets another new person and asked what he did for a job previously. The guy said he drove a garbage truck for the city for 32 years. Einstein said ROLL TIDE!
  9. I have one of those in green.
  10. I take them off. If it's really windy I wear a baseball hat. The brim on a bucket hat is like one big wing in the wind.
  11. I have a Fenix 6 and I've had that problem. I've also had to to a hard reset on the watch a few times because the GPS wouldn't locate or recognize my home course. If I play a new course I've learned to download the course to my watch, not my phone, before I head to the course, because if I don't have the course loaded the watch has issues locating where I am.
  12. I played early Monday and it was fine. I played late Wednesday and it was HOT here in GA. I usually walk my home course, but Wednesday I took a cart. I figured out last year 90 degrees is my limit for walking. I wet my hat when I could and it helps keep me cool.
  13. It depends on what you call a bucket hat. This hat is listed as a bucket. I wet it an wear it and it's a lot cooler in the heat. https://imperialsports.com/product/cc050-the-old-norse-cooling-sun-protection-hat/
  14. I don't have a favorite book or author. I do read quite a bit, more that I watch TV. I do have authors I follow: John Sandford CJ Box Michael Connelly Nick Petrie Carl Hiaasen Lee Child Paul Doiron Alice Henderson Robert Crais John Grisham Ace Atkins Dennis Lehane
  15. So, will the Prince of Saudi win the PGA PIP award?
  16. Well, yeah if she is going to use mayonnaise, its gotta be Duke's.
  17. I don't mind ketchup on a hot dog, although I don't do it. A couple of weeks ago and neighbor and I played a round of golf with some friends of his and after the game was over one of the guys had a hot dog and put mayonnaise on it. I had to look away.
  18. So, it's paying the CC fee the merchant pays, plus a punishment fee?
  19. I eat at a small restaurant that charges a fee when using a credit card. I usually have cash and if I don’t and I use my CC, I understand why the fee exists and I don’t have a problem paying it. 7% for CC use seems exorbitant. Places in my area that charge a fee for CC use charge 3-4%. 7% seems like an added tax. Unless 7% is the norm where you live, but it still seems high.
  20. I was at Fort Dix for a week in '71 waiting to transfer and I had something with gravy, I'm not so sure it was cardboard though.
  21. I agree 100%. I have a BatCaddy and it's been great.
  22. How do you carry the water? I have a TaylorMade cart bag on my cart and I use a 3L Osprey bladder. Similar to a Camelbak is you are familiar with those. The bladder fist nicely in one of the side pockets.
  23. 12 yo Red Breast on the rocks.
