Man driving I80 from Pennsylvania to Iowa would have been a complete bore if I didn’t have a tire blow out on the dog trailer I was hauling and if it wasn’t shut down due to a car wreck and them landing medevac on the highway

I climbed a ladder!!!!

My wife said I was an idiot.  She told me I should check with @BIG STU, but I did it anyway.  

My hitting bay is an enclosed patio behind the 3rd bay of our garage, and it still has the metal patio roof.  The little bit of rain we got on Friday produced a small leak where the roof is connected to the house.  I couldn't see any obvious holes, but caulked some older caulking seams.  The pitch of the house roof is quite steep; that was worse than climbing the ladder.  

We are supposed to get another 0.3 inches of rain on Friday.  If it leaks, I'm calling a roofer!!

Think you could put a piece of metal flashing along that seem? Caulk under that should make a good seal and then it wont be exposed directly to rain either.

It's in the corner, and has flashing.  The patio and the roofing are done well; they are just 20 years old.  Time for a new roof anyway.  We bought the house nearly 2 years ago knowing that the roof would need to be replaced soon, but I was hoping to get a few more years out of it.  I really would like to make the "3 season" room permanent.  Re-roof and remodel!!

Still a bit frustrated because i accidentally flipped my electric cart over twice yesterday on the concrete path. Very minor chips on my putter that are aesthetic only but still not happy about it.

I did something similar with my Epic Speed when it was literally days old. I leaned it against a wall (head up) while I was grabbing my phone for some pics. It slid and hit a cinder block wall. Took a small chip of paint out, but I dabbed the chipped area with black glossy fingernail polish. You really have to look to see there is a blemish.

Fall is in the air, the overnight lows are starting to drop, I enjoyed my first pumpkin spice latte of the season and I closed the pool today. It got me thinking about what replaces golf when winter descends upon Central New York. I’m going the darts route. I have a board hanging in my basement and picked up a set of darts. I just need to add a scoreboard. Maybe I can bring shooting darts to my golf game. 🎯 😃

Wet weather closed one of the Olmstead Conservatory Parks golf courses Wednesday, the one I had a tee time at but going to the closer one times were not available at online proved to be the mend as it was too wet to let carts out as a drive on the grass would have torn it up, walking only.  And with only a handful of people venturing out in the pause of the daylong rain, got the ball into play about the Autumnal Equinox at 3:21 pm EST for an ok 9 hole round.  

The rain stayed west and south while we played then moved back in for the evening.  This photo was taken as the blue was disappearing again to the east and as remarkable as the clouds were, the high flying airliner really adds perspective to what is really going on up there and how big the sky really is overhead.
