  1. That's some sound advice, right there. I try to not mess with anything outside when there's lightning around. Back around fifteen years ago, a friend and I were bass fishing on Fort Loudon lake up near Knoxville and we saw some storm clouds rolling in. We took off toward the dock hoping to beat the storm and get off the water asap. Right about the time we get in sight of the dock the rain comes down in buckets along with lightning. My buddy coasts along the dock at a pretty steady clip and I jump off and take off running for the truck. I get there, we get the boat out of the water, and Allen starts to get in the truck at the same time lightning strikes and he tells me once he's in that when he touched the truck and felt the hair stand up on his body.
  2. I hope everything is ok.
  3. He's beautiful! I think it's sad to see that someone has abused a dog, they're wonderful companions and don't deserve it as all they want is love. I'm glad he found his way into your home.
  4. Thank you, Bill! I can't stop staring at them, they've lured me in like a siren. The first rainy weather has me going crazy because I can't even get out and hit them in the net, but that'll make it sweeter when I can. Might just have to kick the wife out of bed so they have room in there with me. Not to mention, they've got me thinking crazy thoughts about iron covers.
  5. New irons are in the bag! I picked up a set of Mizuno JPX921 Forged irons from fellow forum member @rkj427. It's a set that runs 4-GW with Modus 105 R flex shafts and Golf Pride MCC+4 grips. I've had a fascination with Mizuno for a couple of years and I can say that they do not disappoint. I took a trip to Golf HQ last weekend to try them out before committing and they performed well for me. I saw some gains in distance and they were surprisingly forgiving for a players distance iron. They are gorgeous! The best part of the experience was the communication between Robert and I. I think that's something that gets overlooked in the BST thread, the personal interaction between members. I enjoyed talking about golf and life with him this past week and though we've never met, I am thankful to this forum for giving us a means to know each other better. There's rain in the forecast most of the week, so it'll be closer to the weekend before I get a chance to hit these beauties. I can't wait to get out and have some fun with them!
  6. I'm picturing that in my head and it's hilarious! Mine also love potatoes, so much so we call them pugtatoes.
  7. Anyone else have a dog that gets unusually excited when you have something that involves shredded lettuce? Mine literally dances and begs me for it.
  8. That's a great looking big dog there, @ole gray! I'm also wondering how you like those grips, I saw them on Twitter and looked at them in person at Golf Headquarters and was impressed. Plus, they go nicely with the color scheme of the head. Hit 'em long and straight!
  9. Today was the last of the nice weather days we're going to have for a few days. High in the 90's and sunny. My day was spent at work as seen in a photo I took sitting in the parking lot at 4:30 this morning. I think @Rickp decided he's going to send some of the Florida rain up my way. We're supposed to get storms starting tomorrow.
  10. Very sorry to hear about this @Getoffmylawn. I hope things go well for him and your family. Hopefully it's nothing serious.
  11. That's awesome Mark! It sounds like the two of you had a fun day on the course. Congratulate him on the chip in for par for me. That's a day to remember.
  12. I hate to hear that about your cousin, but I'm happy to hear he's doing ok. Here's hoping to a quick and full recovery.
  13. Congratulations on the HIO! It's cool you had an audience to witness the occasion.
  14. I've gotten out the last couple of evenings and worked on hitting whiffle balls with the focus being on setting the club down and swinging within a couple of seconds after settling the club behind the ball. The way I've been playing the last couple of months has caused me to freeze too long over the ball. Good progress so far!
  15. I was thinking the same thing once I read it. It's been fresh in my mind after listening to the "Chasing Scratch" podcast.
  16. Happy birthday gentleman, I "ho"pe it's been a good one.
  17. I thought the location looked familiar, I absolutely love the Goonies. Press one of the triumvirate of G movies: Ghostbusters, Gremlins, and Goonies.
  18. I just had to look Astoria up to see photos and that's a beautiful area. Personally, I think the PNW is one of the most gorgeous areas I've ever been to. Good luck on the house, Alan!
  19. I hope you can make it through the season without having any problems with either one. I'm hoping to hear good things coming from your lessons.
  20. I'm really sorry to hear this. Golf has a funny way of really getting into our heads and messing with our confidence. I just want to encourage you to keep trying and to let you know it'll get better.
  21. My wife cooked some authentic ramen tonight and it was delicious!
  22. She's doing good today, still a bit itchy but the heavy panting has stopped. I think that's what concerned us as pugs have a tendency to have breathing disorders. We couldn't get an appointment to the vet today, but one did let us know that if she does have allergy problems we can give her a little more Benadryl than we have been doing. I hope they can figure out what's going on with your wife. I'm sorry to hear she's having to deal with this numbness.
