So get this.... I normally have my drive in play and this was the case for the day. I hit a drive straight down the middle of the fairway on hole # 7. This not a course I normally play. Then I see a small beagle dog run out and pick up my ball and run back into the woods. I tee up another and the same dam thing happens. So I proceed to go out to where my ball would have been. I see the dog and a little further behind him is this man in chest waders carrying a sack of balls.

I proceed to tell him that his dog picked up my ball from the fairway and he shows me the sack and sure enough there are my two balls near the top with probably three dozen other balls. He said he was sorry and he trained his dog to fetch golf balls for him but he was still working on training him to only get balls from the woods. Fist thoughts were that was freaking genius.

So I said to him, what if my ball went just off the fairway into the woods and I went to look for it and now your dog took it. He said if it goes in the woods it is fair game. Finders keepers. So now I went from impressed to pissed in 10 seconds. So I didn't want to get into an altercation on a what if scenario with this older gentlemen.  I did get my balls back and since it was an outside agency acting on my ball  I didn't incur a penalty. So I just walked away knowing the Pro shop was two holes away.

At the turn I went into the Pro shop and told them what was going on during the course's open hours of play time. The reply was "oh that's just old Harry. He's harmless and collects lost balls and sells them in his yard on the 15th hole. Then I said he dog was taking them from the fairway while in play. Then the reply was well I guess that was just bad timing. Obviously I was not going to get anywhere with this guy. Must have been an old Harry fan!

So my back nine was not pretty. Not focused and pissed. Wanting to hit his house on 15 so I can tell him he shouldn't have built a house on a golf course. Not to mention looking out of the corner of my eye for that dam dog. (I am a dog guy, nothing against the dog) How many golfers were getting penalized for a lost ball that potentially wasn't. 

You just never know what you can run into on a Golf Course! No I didn't send a ball his way on 15. 

 

There used to be a do that lived off the 11th green at a course i play in E. Wash quite a bit. the dog would grab the ball and run back by his house, and lay down.. All you had to do was walk up to him and he'd let you grab you ball, he thought of it as a game to get attention.. never take it so you could not find it just off the green to where he would lay down... the owner let a bucket on a post just on his property with a sign about the dog..

"If my dog took your ball feel free to replace it, also local rule is to place it as close to original spot as possible.. P.S. dog love to be petted..".. 

you could always find proV's in the bucket, the owner would pick up more from the pro shop as the bucket got low..

Having the ability to see where the UPS driver is can be both exciting and frustrating. O get home from work and they're less than a mile from the house. I keep watching and now they're four miles away going in the complete opposite direction after making stops at both convenience stores down the road.

That's funny, the same thing happened to me while waiting for the JB wedge from Sub-70. I watched the truck on the map go past the turn to my house three times. I was excited because it would have been at the house early enough before my wife left for work. He was in my area at 10:30. My wife was going into work at 1:00. The truck shows up at exactly 1:00. I tried going through the garage to quicken the exchange. But my wife went out the back door at the same time.   BUSTED...… Any time before 12:45 or after 1:15 I would have been in the clear. All I heard was "don't even tell me it was on sale and too good to pass up" My reply was "have a nice day at work dear" as I skulk my way back to the house. 

 

She’s not Numb to it yet lol? My wife just shakes her head, no words needed anymore 🤟

I hope you know I died laughing at that. That's pretty lousy timing on the UPS drivers part. Don't they know not to show up with golf goodies when the wife's around? 😂

I got back at him though... He was in the back of the truck getting the box and I said I guess you got a present for me. But he didn't hear me he had his ear buds in and in the groove. He turned around and I was right there. He jumped so high he almost hit the roof of the truck. Braced himself and said I scared the living sh#t out of him. I told him I called out to him and then told him he should never arrive when my wife was leaving. He should have known better with a box shaped like that. We both laughed. But that didn't last long that's when I turned around to the wife standing there.

 @Tom the Golf Nut I forgot to ask, how are you liking the JB wedge? They're great looking clubs and will definitely look good in the bag with the 699 Pros.

The weather has been terrible and I had a sprained big toe. Now I'm ready to hit it and it's going to snow tonight and crappy until Saturday. Saturday it will be 52 and cloudy. Hopefully I can give it a go then.

A year ago I did the same move but in the opposite direction from Apple to Android.  I don't know which one is better but I had the Apple because my wife has them and I have never been able to properly understand Apple logic.  I have Android because I wanted to get away from the Apple logic and the Android phone was 1/3 the cost of the Apple replacement for what needed replacing.  You have my complete understanding and best wishes for success. 🥃🥃 (two are recommended)

I absolutely love the look of the new Ranger, definitely looks like a tougher truck than the previous models. Thank you for posting that, I've been dying to see what yours looked like.

First time I've bought an American car and first pickup truck for me as well. So still learning more about the truck and things I can waste money on buying for it lol.

Might buy the performance tune kit from Ford Performance, adds a good amount of HP and Torque.

Great looking truck. You may want to make certain that getting the Ford Performance Tune Kit will not void any part of the vehicle warranty. Most of the OEM's today have at least 60,000 mile warranty on the powertrain system components, and those usually are the high dollar repairs.

 

Best of luck with it and making it truly yours by doing any personalized modifications if you choose to go that route.

Yep, already check on the Ford performance tune. It does not void the warranty as long as its installed by a Ford dealer or an ASE certified mechanic. Although I could easily do the tune installation myself, i will pay for the installation to keep the warranty intact.

Ram Rebel 1500 night edition. Waiting for it to hit the lot from shipping. The first year Bronco will be too much of a premium over sticker for my taste.
