Got Problems?

Recommended Posts

Heading to Myrtle Beach.  Why is it in the Rant thread ?  Well, wifey is giving me a hard time about squeezing in a round...of course she did the same thing last year so I didn't bring my clubs and as we passed a few courses, she asked me why I didn't bring my clubs :wacko:  :angry:

That's cold....

 

If it were my wife, I'd think she was doing it on purpose just to torture me. Granted, I deserve it much of the time.

 

When we were in Mexico a few years ago, I asked my wife if her and our daughters wanted to get a massage on the beach? I played golf while they got their massages.

LOL, I just shook my head.  It's a family trip with the kids so I was thinking of trying to squeeze in 9 in the early morning in lieu of one of my shore fishing excursions.  Just need to find a course close by that opens early so I can be home by 8ish...

I remember driving through the Carolinas in the 1950s with my parents before the big highways came in.

 

There were so many roadside attractions back then.

 

I seem to remember Stuckey's, South of the Border, some good BBQ joints, Burma Shave signs, and stuff like that.

 

Also that gray stuff that grows all over the trees.

Yup, different world then.

That's Spanish Moss. There's some folks who harvest that stuff in FL.

My wife dries EVERYTHING in the dryer.... I can't dry all my stuff because I'm 6'5” and everything I own that's made of cotton fits JUST right. I bought two shirts last night, both cotton, both JUST right. I put them in the wash this morning before I left. I WAS going to let them air dry. Well, the wife put them in the dryer.... I now have two shirts I CANT FREAKING WEAR! I'm SO pissed.

I buy everything baggy.

 

And if it's baggy on me,

 

then it's a tent for a small family.

 

The only exceptions are suits,

 

which is why I own so many that I'll never wear again

 

unless I can get back into them when I'm even closer to being dead..

Damn. You would think she would know by now.

 

It's the same with me--size wise--but fortunately my fiance is the same about wanting all hers hung dry as well. They are usually small or XS so if they shrink any more she's screwed as well. Ha

7 years ago I decided I would wash ALL MY OWN CLOTHES. We've had some tense moments but she has left me alone doing this. If they get messed up it's on me. It took a short learning curve but everything is done the way I want it and SWMBO agreed that I do a better kid on my clothes than she did.

Of course it's kinda easy retired, living in FL with a just shorts, golf shirts, socks and underwear

My wife being Irish and the mother of my half-breed, mick-dago kids, I obviously have to do the cooking. 

 

The height of Irish cuisine was the famine, after all.

 

She does the laundry, but she doesn't iron my boxers like my mother did.

 

They must not make them like that anymore.

It's funny, I INSIST on doing my own. I have my own basket, and they don't touch mine, but today she did...

I had to wear suits when I traveled before I retired.  That was 3 years ago.  Haven't worn a suit since, and won't wear another one... ever.

I've offered to do the laundry, and I did it while my wife was laid up with her back and TKR surgeries.  Apparently, I do a bad enough job that she has never asked me to do it anymore.   ;)

 

I did find out one thing about washing cotton shirts and shorts in our new high efficiency, low water washing machine.  I had some newer cotton shirts that showed up one day with a little hole somewhere on them.  Old ones I can understand, but these were fairly new.  Looked like a moth got to them.  However, it was the zipper on the shorts.  Now all shorts are zippered and buttoned.  Who knew!

Not only do I do all of my own laundry, I do EVERYTHING in and outside of the house. It's been quite an adjustment after being married for close to 30 years.... and quite the education, also.

 

Those of you that are still married... be grateful and appreciative of her and what she does for you.... it aint easy!

My back is on fire from building props all day yesterday at the high school, I broke my bathroom vent while painting the ceiling and had shattered glass all over the bathroom, in the paint, you name it. I feel like crap and then my daughter came home and told us that someone we know who's in college was just diagnosed with cancer. 

 

This weekend has sucked.

I heard today that on Friday at the web.com Portland Open, Kevin Stadler got mad and slammed his club into the ground by his feet, the shaft snapped above the head, then flew into the crowd hitting a person.  Blood went everywhere; the person went to the hospital and required 6 stitches.  It really upset Stadler and he missed the cut.  

 

I wonder if he will get fined... or sued.  I really hate people who throw/slam clubs in anger.  There is a good chance that the club breaks, so someone could get injured or at the least, the club must be repaired or replaced.  For what??  A moment of anger that a person will likely regret?  Shameful.

I played in our City Championship and entered for the “regular” division, non-championship flight. I'm a 7.7 GHIN, and can't play with scratch or better. Well, I shot 76 my first round. The Pro puts me in the Championship flight. I'm averaging 83.75 over my last 7 rounds at this course.... I have one of those bad days where nothing feels right, and my brain is ruined. I shot 91. Bad for me even. All the angst I felt all day was because I couldn't just play, I was playing against guys I couldn't beat, and I couldn't stop thinking about it. Had I been in the first flight where 83/82 won, I'd have been in a different place mentally.

I told the pro that I had no business being put against guys that shoot better than my lifetime low every time they play golf.... “But you had the 7th lowest score in the first round!” Um, they're scratch and “plus” handicaps. I had a 1-in-20 round of golf!

I would've finished 3rd in the First flight... Where I belonged all along.
