It's nearing the end of after-work golf.  We have beautiful weather, but it's getting dark earlier and earlier.  On top of that... our front nine has holes 4, 5, 7 and 8 playing directly into the setting sun. Impossible to see the ball when hitting; a spotter is a must.  There is one good thing about it... you keep your head down unless you want to be blinded.

we could tee off at 8.30PM in summer and get 18 in- pretty soon it will be dark at 5pm- it's already cold everyday and we have 7 months of this to come- not a fan of winter, it looks great but it's a PITA to live in

The group has about 6 people in it. We’ve never had more than 4 show up. There is no committee. It’s one guy making a tee time and sending out an email.

Just factor in that when I say I will be there for something I show up, and show up with plenty of time to spare before the actual time.

I’m a man of my word. What I say I mean, and what I mean, I do. So when someone (essentially) lies to me by either not showing up or taking off early, way before the appointment, it pisses me off.

I have the same pet peeve about people who are habitually late for things. I had another friend who you could never count on to actually show up on time for a tee time. It didn’t matter what time, or where, but he always had an excuse for why he was running late. The problem with running your life like this is that while you assume it’s no big deal, me and everyone else who showed up on time to play golf, you made wait. Essentially, you think your time is more valuable than mine.

I see it in all sorts of places. Work, school, church, golf, wherever. People that are tardy never apologize and just think their behavior is acceptable. I disagree and I take offense by it. It’s rude and pisses me off. Same goes for the situation here. I show up 30 minutes early and you are already gone? I don’t think so. It’s unacceptable in my book. Apparently this guy disagrees and even said to me he’d do it again.

Now you know why I am pissed off and didn’t play golf last Saturday.

Gotcha. I understand that. For tee times I always try to show up a minimum of 30 min early. I hate being late for anything. I’d rather be 15 minutes early. My kids struggle with that, which makes me get a little perturbed with them. We have a big group on Saturday, but I can certainly understand the frustration with a guy like that.

I’m the same way, if I’m not 30” early I’m late.

Probably isn't playing nice with the new forum interface - I am guessing there are still some things on the back end that need to be updated to make the forum play nice with the app.  Even Tapatalk has been slower than normal when using the MGS forum

That's because it's all made overseas... No pride in production, parts are cheaply made, of low quality.

We have a Whirlpool factory about 30 min away from us. Of course the circuit board is probably made in Mexico or China.

Had password issues with desktop and Tapatalk. Deleting the app and going to reinstall it to see if that helps.

Going in tomorrow morning to have two more skin cancer's cut out.  One close to my right eye and one on the crown of my head. I've had two cut out in earlier years.   The good thing is they are basal cell carcinoma's which are no big deal, unless you let them go too long. My rant is my nose will be all swollen, my eye may be blacken and my Birthday is Tuesday. If we go out to eat, I'll be looking like a prize fighter who got the worst end of the fight.

Don't forget to send us pic's. I had a large one done above my cheek bone a year and a half ago. After the plastic surgeon got done with me, my face looked like as Mack truck hit me. Of course my wife thought it was funny and posted it on her facebook page

Was thinking about hitting the practice area today after my SuperSpeed Protocol session, but it's getting windy.  Just got an alert on my phone for high winds this afternoon... 30+ mph and blowing dust.  The farmers in the Horse Heaven Hills upwind of us just outside town have plowed their fields for winter wheat.  Their topsoil will be 25 miles away!!

That sucks. They've got a tough enough job as it is without having to deal with that.

That doesn't happen with asphalt.

We are out in the wide open spaces.  From the edge of each of the 3 cities that make up this community in 30 miles in any direction (more if you go north), it's either farm land or desert.

I live in an area with no unincorporated county land.

Even in more rural areas, the minute you leave one city or town, you're in another.

I remember my surprise as a young person discovering that this wasn't the case everywhere.

They all have the same plot, local boy now is a big shot finance guy in NY. Is somehow given the assignment to go to an under performing family store from his hometown and make a aggressive bid to buy it and turn it into a big chain. All before Christmas Eve.

 

Meantime his high school sweet heart is now a single mother and managing the store trying to keep it affloat. Mr bigshit is going to lay people off.

 

They butt heads but ultimately he is won over by the town holiday spirit and decides to quit his job and use all his skill in helping turn around the local store while also joining the comittee for decorating town center for the Christmas Eve tree lighting.

 

The girls young son is taken with him and they get engaged and a year later have their own baby as the store is thriving.

 

Yep. Seen that plot many times. Yet I keep watching with her. Ha. I'm such a sap!!
