Ah the joy of their first car. That's awesome! Reminds me of mine, my grandfather's old 03 Chevy Astrovan with tinted windows. Legit looked like a van trying to lure kids in with candy. That car is now in a much better place...

"Reminds me of mine, my grandfather's old 03 Chevy Astrovan..."

LOL!  You just made me feel older!!   I have an 03 Ford Explorer ST.

Well cleaned up storm damage today.....minimal secondary damage removing the tree from the house but wouldn’t be fun if I didn’t break something else in the process!

Just noticed this at the bottom of the MGS forum pages on the website.  And another reason this place rocks.

It has been amazing seeing my soon to be fiance grow with this game since she first started her women's league/lessons only 3-4 months ago. She is hitting the ball consistently straight with about 80-100 yards most shots and I can tell how much she is enjoying it. She is absolutely addicted and even said today that she is having so much fun playing (more than she initially thought). I'm so happy that we will have this game to play with each-other for many years ahead.

I hope eventually my SO will get into it. She’s hesitant right now (never has been an athlete). I am glad your SO and yourself have found something together.

Congratulations!  My advice:  just help keep it fun for her, and let someone else handle the lessons.

Many on the forum here have heard my story before.  I guess I have been lucky, and someone even said that I have a unicorn!  I met my wife on a golf course.  She had been playing since 1963; I started in 1992.  After a few years, I proposed to her on the 1st tee... on April 1, a date I can remember. LOL  On April 2 she asked if I meant it.  A year and 3 weeks later we were married on the 1st tee... by a jazz musician friend from Seattle.  Said our vows; turned around and teed off.  We rented the course for the day, and friends and family played all day.

It's great having a regular golf partner, but we each have other people we play with.  She plays in the Ladies League and I play with the old coots.  We travel to lots of great golf locations, and we have played some very nice courses.  The bad part is when we travel, the cost of golf is doubled so golf at the expensive courses is limited.  My wife told me that she would not play well on an expensive course knowing how much it cost... so I don't tell her!

That's awesome. I love the stars and those pictures are really cool. I get spoiled when I go to northern WI and see everything as in the city I can only see the moon LOL

What did you use to take the pictures of the stars with?

I used an Olympus OM-D EM-1 with a wide angle lens, tripod, and delay shutter release to mitigate vibrations. After that it’s just manual focus, a wide open aperature, and playing around with exposure and ISO settings.

My camera has a feature for long exposures like the star straits, while others will do that by stacking many shorter exposures using software.

If you’re interested in learning more a great resource is over at www.lonelyspeck.com. I learned a lot from that site.

OK quick favor to ask for those of you who listen to music on Spotify! Do you mind heading over to my band's new EP and giving it a quick listen, or just clicking the heart icon to "like" it? The more plays & likes we get, the better chances we have of it being added to playlists. 

This isn't a money thing - Spotify royalties are a joke. We made $1.29 total over the past year for our plays 🤣 Honestly, it's more about getting the music out to more people since this is a labor of love for us. Thanks!

My wife, independent of my influence, has decided that our first vacation after the pandemic is over (who knows when this will be), is to Toronto. She wants to see Niagara Falls.

I didn't tell her about the part about me going to TXG for a fitting...

Ok, she brought up Toronto again. I mentioned there is a famous "golf thing" in Toronto. Didn't explain what it was or the cost, I think i am in the clear.
