Got Problems?


Recommended Posts

They punched and sanded the greens here on Monday. I've never seen so much sand in my life. Was planning on playing this week, but I don't think it's even worth it. The greens looked like giant bunkers.

I would say you are lucky.  My course skimps on sand, so when they irrigate that night the sand is washed into the holes but it's not enough to fill them up.  We will have very bumpy greens until the greens heal.

My dad passed away this morning. Yesterday morning he had a heart attack.  At the hospital the doc said he had congestive heart failure, fluid on lungs, low BP, low oxygen level, and kidneys failing.

Wanted to thank all for your thoughts and prayers these past weeks. My father passed peacefully early this morning. The picture is how I will choose to remember him. Sent from my SM-A102U using MyGol

Yea my grandmother passed away over the weekend from it. Have her funeral in a few days.

Not for anything, Shankster, but you could let the moths out of your wallet and play somewhere else!

 

Don't get angry with me, ol' buddy.

I'm only snarky because I'm grumpy about not being able to play.

I hear you. I would, but there aren't many options around here.

True, but there is only roughly 3.5 weeks before they close down... why now?

Because now is prime time for grass root growth. Punching now will allow the holes to fill in and any grass they plant to take hold before first frost

True. Just annoying. I hate sand.

Yes, I try to avoid it all year long!  Most unsuccessfully, I might add.

They just wrapped up doing all 12 course last week and are almost done with the Execs.

We try to work around play to miss the aeration and sand and then the final top dressing. They stagger the aeration and publish a schedule so we watch that closely, well I do since I do the tee times.

My son finishes up his first week of the red phase in basic training tomorrow (Friday) and we have yet to receive the Commander's letter.  :mad:   He arrived on base 8/28 and was in processing until last Friday 9/27. Once we get the Commander's letter all the good info will be available like Company facebook pages with pictures, family day, and graduation dates. You also know who's in your soldiers Company so you can bond with the parents going through the same cycle.   Just ranting and you'd think I was an ole Mother Hen..   :D

You got that right!  I had the opportunity to call home one time when I was in Vietnam and that was to give my Dad the OK to send power of attorney for signature.  My wife ran around on me while I was there.   

 

Heck with the new Company Facebook pages you can keep up with your trainees training, see pics of action shots, talk with other parents whose kids are in same Company, etc.   All sorts of good media info that makes the families at home seem part of the process.

Army sure has changed since the 60's. We were lucky to survive the DI's.

I'll have a short visit with him at Family Day and then again at Graduation.  Not sure how much leave he has post graduation however hopefully I can get in a good chat before he heads to his first duty station.  His Mom lives in Macon, Ga. and I live up near Athens so I'm thinking he will spend most of his time in his hometown.  I'll grab a day or two with him and pick his brain.

If I remember correctly Basic we were pretty much locked down, AIT loosened up a lot.

I'm sure he'll have ton of stories that'll bring back a ton of memories [emoji106]

I obviously don't know your son, Gray, but I can tell you about mine.  (We're going back to the early 90s, now.)

 

When he was home on leave from the army, the last thing that he wanted to talk about was the army.  If I tried to "pick his brain," he'd have gotten up and gone to a hotel. 

 

He wanted to talk about ball games and boxing matches that he'd missed and what some of his friends had been up to.

 

But that's us. 

 

You and your boy could be completely different.

Yeah I still remember Basic even though it was 50 years ago. Especially the first day - where we all (probably 500 of us) had to drop our pants for a physical in the Drill hall. Basic training at Great Lakes Naval Trasining Center in the middle of winter - not so much fun. .

Apparently my car had a recall for the ignition switch. So much for a quick free oil change and tire rotation. Wish I had brought my laptop so I could finish up my Stage 2 for the Mizuno ST-180 while I waited.
