That's too bad - but you can also post in the happy thread that your server stayed dry. BTW hope you have it backed up.

Man that stinks, I hope you didn't lose too much. We had that happen with our water heater a few years ago, and we live in a split level so it drained into our living room. Wasn't a fan of that, no sir.

 

 

Cleaned up most of it yesterday and having a dehumidifier running along with a couple of fans.  On a good note, my wife wants to get rid of the stuff she's been saving so less junk in the house, LOL.

After 9 hours at the airport in Nashville with three kids our flight home was cancelled. Had to overpay to get two rooms at a Marriott nearby and hopefully I will be on a flight home tomorrow morning. Crappy end to a good vacation.

On our round today my wife hit two nice shots on the Par 5 #5 hole.  She plays a yellow Srixon Z-Star.  As we were waiting for others in our group to hit, a cart comes into our fairway from the #6 hole which runs parallel in the opposite direction.  This happens a lot since a lot of slicers clear the trees and end up in the #5 fairway.  

 

A guy gets out of the cart and hits back over to his fairway.  He is two groups ahead of us.  When we get up to where my wife's ball should be, it's not there, and about 20 yards away is a yellow Titleist.  The guy is long gone towards the #6 green.  She drops a ball and we play out the hole, then tee off on #6 also a par 5; play our second shots which puts us near the #6 green.  While we wait for the group in front of us on the green, we drive over to #7 and find the guy that hit my wife's ball.  We have his Titleist and wanted to trade it for her Srixon.  Too late.  He hit it in the pond off the #7 tee.  He offered a new ball from a sleeve of yellow Titleists, but we already had his ball.  We gave it back to him.  He apologized, but who plays a hole with probably 5-6 shots including putting, then tees off with a ball that's clearly not his?

This isn't really a rant but I don't know where else to post it.

I was playing on my home course the other day. I was on 12 tee which is right next to 14 tee. There was a foursome on 14 waiting on a group in front of them. I then noticed the one guy was hunched over on the ground and then just kind of rolled over. His three buddies then hit and helped him half carried back to the cart. I thought that was odd. Anyway when I get to the tee there is a Sharpie that had the ink tube pulled out and cracked open and a latex glove stained with Sharpie. Again odd. Well it turned out the guy was huffing Sharpie fumes and was high. Well I just was astounded that something like that was happening on a golf course. If you are going to get high, why do it on a golf course?

I guess my point is just do NOT do drugs. After seeing the way this guy was acting, I know I never will.

Sharpie?? Really??  I guess now there's another item I have to get authorization for when I go through self checkout. I just don't understand some things that people do.

I was rear ended in a hit and run in Oct 2017. I am STILL dealing with insurance BS. I was sent to collections over an x-ray bill that was never paid, and I've spent all morning at work making calls and sitting on hold because the red tape is beyond ridiculous. I'm about to pay the damn thing out of pocket just to end this garbage. Honestly I think that's why they make it so difficult, so you get frustrated and pay so THEY don't have to.

Sounds like it's time for a call to your state's insurance commissioner. Or the consumer advocate at  the local tv station.

One of our local pros, a very good player who won the WA State AM in his younger days, died before the age of 35 of a drug overdose.  Left a wife and 3 kids.

That is sad. It is becoming quite the common theme though. Something needs to change.

Our local hospital had a scramble this past Monday. Don't know how many teams but they took virtually the whole day to complete the 18 holes. My rant is when I played that night it looked like a butcher took to the course. Tons of divots not replaced or filled with sand (which is on the carts) and unrepaired ball marks on every green. Why are people so disrespectful.

Well, my car issue #2 in July. Using a loaner Mercedes from my parents while I shop around for the SUV I wanted instead of using a loaner car from an accident a few months ago. Well, it's dead. Thought it might be the battery so in the flood of a rain we had last night, changed it and nothing. Now waiting for a tow. Missed a few hours of work this AM to deal with this...not to mention the repairs for their car (which I'll pay for since they were nice enough to lend it to me). Just bad luck with vehicles this year.

If I' own a golf course how much money does an outing really bring in

At our club, the majority of members pay an annual golf member fee. So any event is extra cash for the club outside of having to rent additional carts. The staff is the same size, Lunch and drinks are above and beyond the entry fee. I'm ok with the additional events just wish people would be more respectful of the course.

Tony that's what I'm getting at. My club doesn't have any outings but a semi private course does and people destroy it after it's done. I know everything's about money but the amount of time to fix the course after is it worth it

Went to eat lunch with my brother in Dallas today.... Ugh. Told me he has cancer. Rough lunch. Surgery Friday. He's been sitting on this info for awhile and has only told me and one other sibling. Colon cancer. Man.... He and I and our Dad share similar issues, so looks like I need to go have another test done and keep on top of this stuff.
