Fell getting out of bed last night (a combination of a few drinks and a dog where she should not have been).

Hit my head hard on the end table.

I got up and went to work but really had a nasty headache by noon. It was then that I realized that I had a nasty knot on my temple. Went to the walk in clinic, they sent me to the ER for a CT scan.

Nothing serious but the doctor believes that I have a concussion. My wife told me that I was definitely knocked out.

So a couple of days of bed rest for me. I’m on some pretty good meds - at least my head and neck have stopped hurting

Found out last night that our fridge is on it's way out...we're now looking at around $2500 for a replacement.

Welcome to my world. Had to replace washing machine, oven and fridge over about 2 months earlier this year. At least I'm really happy with the fridge and oven, and the washing machine seems to still automatically get my clothes clean.

No good Kev, take it easy and as @tommc23 said, listen to your body. Waiting an extra day or 2 to get back into things can only be a good thing.

Wow!  Sorry to hear that.  Get plenty of rest, and keep us posted.

At our age... Don't be a statistic!

Wow thanks to everyone for the well wishes and good advice.  Still feeling it today for certain.  Kenny, I went to the ER yesterday for just that reason.  I've heard of a few people who have fallen, bumped their head, thought they were okay and then died two days later from brain swelling or have had significant lingering impacts from this sort of fall.  As soon as I started feeling weird and noticed how big the knot was on my temple, I went.  As I was being discharged my nurse told me that they had a woman there a few months earlier who came in too late. 

I will just take my time - did a quick video and a virtual meeting earlier - will only do virtual on Weds and off on Thursday.  Hopefully I'm back at it on Friday but if not at least for Sunday.  (I'm not preaching this weekend which is good.)

I'm glad you went in, Rev. My grandpa suffered a stroke a few years back and thought he just drank too much. He recovered but it did have some lasting effects and ultimately ended his golf career, and it might not have if he had gone to the ER like everyone told him to. Glad you're not as stubborn as him! Get well soon!

My FIL went backwards over a chair while I was there this afternoon working on their verandah...a bit of blood, but my MIL is keeping an eagle eye on him. I told her that if he says he's feeling funny just grab the pillow and as she's putting it over his face say "you're time has come old man". 😂

Covid is part of my problem.  The two closest fitters to me are both in areas with higher infection rates.  The other part?  I tried my friend's irons at the range this morning and on paper I should not be able to do squat with them.  I play game improvement irons and he plays player's cavity backs.  I'm also still fairly new to golf at 1 year and 4 months of off and on experience.  I now desperately want to go to fitter, but Covid is not worth the answers to my questions.

Honestly most fitters are probably seeing less people right now which should help ease your concerns. Call one and ask them what they are doing to help lower the risk if you're concerned.

Arkansas Golf Center recently shared that they are booked for several weeks.  Fittings and lessons count towards their 80 weekly openings.  I was pretty surprised with the way things are these days.  

Mostly it's just a personal concern of mine.  None of my friends have caught it and no one at my job or my wife's job have tested positive, so I don't want to end up being the one who gets it and spreads it.

Please excuse my language.  But If anyone has any idea on how to keep jackasses from playing your golf course ...I'm all ears.   The second time in a week this has happened.  
Right or wrong in someway I blame these golf cart stunt videos that are popping up all over IG and places. 
I'm pissed because our Superintendent works 10 hours a day 7 days a week during this time of year to keep the course conditions up.  Then he has to come in and see this
FYI.  This is only one picture of 4 similar greens.

Wow. I don’t even really know what to say. That is just senseless destruction of property.

I cringe every time I see one of those videos posted online. And the fact that this happened to the greens is even worse.

[mention]Lacassem [/mention]’s cousin is a greenskeeper and I can only imagine what he would do if he got a hold of the punks that did that.

No words. 

Probably time to invest in GPS controlled carts, and maybe a flaying if you catch them.

Yeah. I really wish we could.  Except we have electric carts that are kept outside overnight all year long in a fenced in "cage" area.  But no electric or shelter for them.  

We are a municipal course and tend to attract the Bros with Beer type crowd especially late in the day.

Maybe a cost benefit analysis of GPS vs course damage, lots of potential upside. Still consider the flaying option.

Just terrible. I was a punk but would never do this to someone’s personal property (especially hard work that goes into it)

definitly like @Peaksy68 thought on gap analysis I bet a camera system or better area to secure the carts would pay for itself after 2 or 3 of these incidents. Just trying to get that back is extremely costly in materials and labor.

we have a similar issue at work right now where kids are climbing over the fence and breaking into one of our buildings (it’s a grey water facility why they are breaking in I still don’t know) nonetheless we have to invest in some way to keep them out, never easy or inexpensive....

I would invest in a couple trail cam monitors. It is motion activated, takes pictures and saves them to an SD card. You can pull the chip plug it into your pc or laptop and now you will know who the culprits are. You just strap these to a tree and your good to go. They sell for about $70 to $80.

My neighbors have them to take pictures of wildlife on the back of my property.

Our country club had a problem with cash being stolen from the drop box that the staff would use from food and beverage department. There was a mail slot with a basket on the inside of the door that was used for after hours and weekends. The deposit slips were not matching the cash. We put one in the office. Got pictures of the employee taking the cash. Called the police and  the problem was solved. All it takes is catching a few, making an example of them and words gets around. 

Also reporting to the news paper and putting the damage in print brings attention to the situation and awareness to the community. Even offer a reward for information.

Yep. We already have 5 or 6 out in other areas.  We are a 36 hole course spread out over 800 acres.  With many holes bordering trails that lead to housing areas.  We have put cameras there as well to try and catch kids coming through with four wheelers and dirt bikes.  

We caught one that way.  His father's response "well where else Is he supposed to ride it" 😡😡😡😡. With parenting like that.  I think we are fighting a losing battle.   We showed it to the police and they said it wasn't positive enough ID to do anything 😟

As for a secured cart barn to put carts with GPS In. It's been in the budget for a couple years. But is always one of the first things to get cut. 

Some finance people can't see long term cost/benefit analysis.  It's all about right now.

Saw similar in CT maybe 10-12 years ago. Local cops somehow tracked kids down and I believe parents had to pay for repairs. Of course the ATV’s were illegal.
