Had one of those rounds where i don't feel good at all about my game, and am feeling discouraged. Add to that, injured myself as well pretty early in the round. 

Listen to your body and take it easy for a while.  Putt around the house and see if you can find some not serious buddies and go enjoy your next round not caring about what you shoot.  When I'm in the dumps golfwise, that generally helps me.

Hope the physical and golf recovery goes swiftly.

I am doing a research paper on Intergenerational Relationships over the next few weeks.

I personally remember having great relationships with older people when I was a kid.  Learning from them, but now, it’s like hey... old man, you are a creep get the heck our of here... 

got any input for me?

So.... are you asking for input from creepy old men, 'cause I think you are in the right place??!!??  😆

I have thought about this a lot the last few months because we have my 90+ yo parents living with us since March.  There is a lot of assisted living type of effort, how that changed the relationship and how drastically different it is now compared to 5 years ago.

When I was in my 20's, I worked part time as a doorman at a high rise condo in Tampa.  Many affluent retired people lived there as well as many working people as well.  

There was one man--Mr. Fields--he was a retired lawyer in his 70's at the time, he would come down each evening after dinner to have a cigar.  He would sit in a chair in the lobby very near my station.   Yes, you could still smoke in public places at that time..ha    I didn't mind the cigar smoke at all.  I got to know him pretty well, and soaked up the stories he told me, on everything from Presidents to Babe Ruth and the Yankees of the 20's.   Every evening was the better than any history lessons I received in school.   I moved on from that job, and I've never met anyone like him since.

Got my mega-dose flu shot today.  The Dr. told me that the CDC said that one of the strains in the vaccine is a very good match for the flu showing up on the east coast this year, so the vaccine should be very effective.  In addition, with all of the COVID protocols in effect, the flu death rate should be extremely low this year compared to previous years.  So we got that going for us... which is nice!

We did the flu also.
We are at the start of Hoarding again. SWMBO went to store yesterday no paper products and frozen foods were minimal. The amount of “Seasonal Residents” and renters has been at max for a month. Never saw so many northern states license plates this early.

My wife went to Walmart early Monday morning.  TP all gone.  Since we can't visit my dad in Oregon for at least the next month, I quickly sent some to him via Amazon.  They were out on some products already too.

Maybe some of those "Seasonal Residents" are staying there permanently this year??

My good friend who passed away 10 years ago lived in Ohio and bought a patio home on a golf course maybe 25 years ago.  Did the bird thing.  It wasn't long before he changed his permanent residence to Naples for tax purposes, but kept his home in OH for summer.

So a few months back I had posted a pic of what was the former 6th green of the course 2 mins from my house that closed 5 years ago. It was an overgrown mess. 

I had noticed some work on the property to start cleaning things up a few weeks ago, it was right around the time I saw an article about concerns over abandoned/neglected properties and fire concerns due to how dry it was. As of today, the whole property is cleaned up, grass is cut, front gates have been removed and there's some traffic in and out. A buddy just heard that the course & the function hall onsite have finally been sold and the new owners are planning on re-opening both, and not using the land for development. Hope we get some real news soon. 

EDIT: Pic can be found in this post -

We went to Walmart this afternoon. There were some paper products but not much. Parking lot loaded w New York, New Jersey & Michigan. More than usual this time of year.
And to your point Kenny most of the Snowbirds I know have their permanent address as FL for Tax purposes. Some are legit others not so much. I believe must live in FL over 6 months.

I had to run in to Walmart to pick up a couple of things today and noticed most of the carts in the checkout lanes had large size TP and paper towel packages. Let the shortage games begin .

Hoarding is very much in full swing again. Wife grabbed a small TP yesterday because we are getting low and needed some but wanted to make sure because it was bare! Canned goods are flying off the shelf too
