Got Problems?

I don't get enough 90ºF weather up here to complain about it, ever.

You never have to scrape 90º off your windshield.

You never have to shovel it off your driveway.

Five months of 90, five months of 65 , and two transitional months of 75 would be absolutely perfect for me.

Yeah, it was 90+ here yesterday and today, and tomorrow, and....

summer seems to never end.  The humidity is down a bit, so that's promising.  Maybe by November I can wear pants on the golf course.  

If there was ever a time for the middle finger emoji...😀

we are getting snow on Friday.

I've shoveled my share of snow.  I've driven on my share of icy and snowy roads.  I did something about it, and moved south.

I don't really share the 90° weather comment as a rant, but more as an update.  The wife wonders what we'll do once we retire.  She wants to move north somewhere.  My response to her is always the same, "Sure, we can move up north somewhere...for August."

Just tell your wife that, financially, it may not be a good idea.   My wife has a good friend that has lived in Florida for a number of years.  Her husband's employer transferred him to their Florida operations.  He is now retired.   The Baltimore/Annapolis area is their home and they thought about returning home, in a manner of speaking.   Unfortunately, they found that the sale of their current residence would not yield sufficient funds for its replacement here.   Accordingly, I suggested to my wife that we sell our residence relocate to  Florida and bank some funds. Unfortunately, it ain't gonna happen.

Well, honestly, money is not the obstacle to something like this.  We are actually set up to be snow birds if we wanted to.  Our house is paid for, and for a lack of a better way of saying it, once my mother-in-law passes, my wife inherits her house.  So we will have two houses in the same town.  We either sell our house and take the proceeds and buy a property somewhere where summer is not so hot, or we buy an RV and travel around when we want to and return to home base when we feel like it.

We have a few options on the table, but right now we are sort of on pause, as A) the MIL is still alive and kicking, albeit, just waiting to die, and B ) I'm only 51, so I have a few years to wait this out before retirement is something I can even remotely consider.  And since I don't make a whole lot of money, any income in retirement will be from inheritance and social security.  My 401(k) is a joke honestly.

Yeah, I know, first world problems.

That's what people in California have been doing for years now... selling their million dollar mobile homes and moving up here.  Buying a new ritzy house for $400-500K and banking the rest.  Unfortunately, they are bringing all of the California problems with them.

Well. Was planning on going out today, but it’s a downpour. I think my golfing is done for 2018... outside anyways.

We need a thumbs down option on posts. [emoji1304]

Got my Edel wedges today and I’m PISSED. I put on the order to stamp the initials of my kids haphazardly ALL OVER the back of the club, and then paintfill the initials.
They put ONE set of initials on each club.... ONE! I emailed them and let them know I’m pissed.
That’s ridiculous. I’ll just buy another brand next time and have Wedge Wizard grind them like Edel does.
PISSED!

How many f’ing 4 foot birdie putts can you miss in a round?

It absolutely destroys your confidence when you nut a drive and stick the approach shot to 4 feet or closer and then walk off with par everytime.

Unbelievable. [emoji35][emoji35][emoji35]🤬🤬🤬

Wow what a day! My wife and several ladies left town to play in a golf tournament at guess where? Columbus, Ga. I'm concerned about their travel back Thursday as they play the tournament Tuesday/Wednesday. Maybe they can head back Wednesday evening if all goes well.

Ok so now for my predicament. 1f62b.png😫 Some of you know as I have mentioned I'm nursing a couple of bulging discs and pinched nerve in my lower back. I figured it was mostly from old age as we all start having joint etc. issues. I'm due for a shot in my back October 29th to relieve the discomfort. Well today I had a few things take place that jacked up the pain to a round 11ish on a scale of 1 - 10. 1f61f.png😟

It's ok to laugh at the 2nd thing that happened as it truly would have made America's Funniest videos show.

!. It's about to pour down rain so I call my dog in for the day and noticed blood spots on the floor. At first I thought it was me because I saw no evidence of injury on my dog so I run into the bathroom and check out the back of my arms etc. The blood spots on the floor led to a trail out to the back porch. Now I noticed blood on her hair next to her neck and side of her leg. Now I'm freaking out because I can find out where it's coming from! I checked her neck, back of her head, side of her leg and everywhere else I could think of, except her ear. Apparently she either nicked her ear on a rose bush coming our of the garden or did it coming through the doggy door on the screen porch. Anyways that little wound on her neck was bleeding like a leaky faucet. I applied pressure with a couple of paper towels and it finally stopped bleeding. In the process I had to bend over straining my lower back to keep the pressure on her ear. The pull on my back was telling me to back off or else.

2. Ok you can laugh after the next thing that happened. I was sitting on the back porch with Roxie making sure her ear had stopped bleeding and here runs in my cat with a chipmunk in his mouth! I'm hollering at Roxie to stay still so her bleeding would stop, hollering at Buster to drop the dayuuuummmmm chipmonk. He dropped it and I rushed Buster in the back door so I could herd the chipmunk outside.

3. I finally got this accomplished so I head in to mop up the blood droppings from Roxie's ear. The blood had dried hard on the floor and I was pushing down on the handle when I felt my back catch. It locked up so bad I could hardly make it to a chair to sit down. Time will tell however I may have went from bulging to herniating either one or both of those discs.

4. Ice pack is now on my back with a cane I had from my knee surgery days close by. I think my golf game for tomorrow is a wash and gawd forbid my cat from hauling in another chipmunk!!!

I don't drink alcohol these days as I drank enough in my younger life, to be sufficient enough for most small towns. If I was a drinking man, I would be sitting here slugging down something real hard.... lol So my dog with a sore ear and myself with a sore back and no one home to nurse us.... 1f625.png😥

Update for Tuesday morning:   I was suppose to play golf with the old coots today however that's not happening now are in the foreseeable future!   Back pain sucks!!
