Yeah.  They countered… we are mulling it over.  Early early August is report date.  We have a little time, but I will be super busy when I get there getting qualified and the other things that come with the territory if you know what I’m getting at without actually getting at it. 😂 

Yup as I learned in the Navy---- Hurry up and wait

Never in my life thought I’d see someone ask about or know about Sacred Heart in Belmont (my mom is an alumnus).  That Sacred Heart combined with Belmont Abbey decades ago doesn’t really exist any longer. 

Way back in the day when I was a car mechanic I worked on one of the Nun's cars. She was a real nice lady and a teacher there. A racing friend advertised free of charge the little orphange they had there and supported it. In fact the deal on the Nun's car was through my racing friend.

My bud in Charlotte I told you about whose daughter had some Symerta Tour status got a first year golf scolarship there then transferred to Wofford. So yeah through they years I have had an interest in the place

In a few years it’ll hit that 80 year mark for Dday, which also happened on June 6. It’s interesting the events in WW2 on this day 

I actually read an article yesterday on the first C-47 to lead the troop drop on that day. That plane is flying and restored and is in Texas

Yes in 2 more years .. '24. I still recall seeing President Reagan's speech on the 40th (had to look that up) anniversary.

Another tidbit about Midway - it was only SIX months after Pearl Harbor!

Alright you need to expand on this one.

Simple. Successful people want to see other people be successful. 

Successful can be for anyone at any level and can even be within the same field or industry as the other.

winners don’t get jealous when they see other winning, they celebrate it.

Winners don’t care how much another person makes even if it’s more than them. They don’t care if it’s ungodly amounts of money, they celebrate that persons success and wealth. They don’t care how or on what another person spends their money on. Jealous people are the ones that worry and complain about this. Jealousy isn’t a winners mentality.

The energy you put out is the energy you get back

Call me old school but I personally dislike the pre-calculated and worse, default recommended, gratuity.  I've seen some default to 18 to 22%.  Don't get me wrong, I have no issues with tipping for good service but the decision as to how much is appropriate can be left with me thanks very much.

The reason that most companies pre calculate the tip is most millennials don't know math and cannot calculate percentages. 😬

My wife is guilty on that and on french fries too---- As long as it is Dukes Mayonnaise--- I have been with her some 35 years now so in time I have learned to ignore it

Most people not from the south have no idea about Dukes Mayonnaise. Personally, I don't eat any brand of mayonnaise. YUK!

Agreed.  That’s why I only use Miracle Whip.  And that is even disgusting…

Not related to golf at all, but .. today, June 6th, is the 80th (!!) anniversary of the Battle of Midway. Was reading a few interesting stories earlier.

Thank You!! to all active and retired Navy and Marine people 👍👍

BTW Midway (current version) was a great movie

Small world, my home Physical Therapist was born in Danbury CT and turned down a Football Scholarship @ Sacred Heart because he couldn’t stand the cold and moved to FL after HS and became a PT.  He saw my Sacred Heart T shirt from my Gdaughter.

Had my 1st REAL PT session at home this afternoon. Good Kid, he’ll be coming  to the house everyday for next 2weeks!

Gdaughter sent me Tee Shirt from Sacred Heart University!  Not crazy about red but it’s my Gkid.😁F3302F53-6877-4A70-A94B-A454EC0C1A31.jpeg.d1e7a661bae6aa22064cd101b5ab5172.jpeg

I didn't know you had the surgery - guess I'm not here enough - here's hoping for a speedy recover. BTW a few years back my son sent me a long sleeve red SHU shirt. Not sure what I did with it since I'm not a fan of red as well.  When I graduated it was still considered a 4 year commuter college' with only a few options for majors. They have greatly expanded and even have numerous post grad programs today.

No way, small world! Belmont is a great place. I hope she is enjoying her time there. 
 

I take a trip up to watch my alma mater (Erskine College) play the Abbey once a year or so.  I live less than an hour from the campus.
