Got Problems?

Back in the early '70's in my young and stoopid days of car racing, I seriously consider buying a Ferrari... a used Dino 246GT with 15K miles on it; personal car of Ron Tonkin, big car dealer in Portland, also the Ferrari dealer.  It was the same price as my first house I bought 2 years earlier.  I didn't buy it because basically I'm cheap frugal; there was an annual maintenance cost of $1200 + parts.  And that was the V6 engine!!!

Presuming you kept it in top shape, care to guess what that investment would be worth today?  The great news is that you could sell your house and get this one 🤣

It still costs the same as my house today!!!  I loved that car!  Not the fastest or best handling, but oh so sexy!

Received the second dose of Moderna  on Wednesday afternoon at 4:00. All was well until Thursday afternoon around 3:00. Dam thing kicked my butt. No strength, chills, face was burning up, no taste. I thought I would just lay down for a while around 4:30 yesterday. I woke up at 7:00 this morning. I don't think I ever slept 14 hours straight.  Almost feel back to normal now. Appetite and taste are back, energy level is picking up. Just in time for some golf this weekend.

Good you're feeling better so quickly.  I think @dlow206 and @Grand Stranded each had those symptoms once but it was from not ordering a club for 48 hours straight!  They quickly healed themselves!!  🤣

I’m looking at my sig, and I have to admit, you’re spot on here, you wascally wabbit!!!

Over the last 6 months I’ve completely redone my entire 14 club set up. On the bright side I’ve made a few new friends at the PGASS, and I’m on a first name basis with the Fed Ex and UPS drivers in my neighborhood. So there’s that, lol.

Im so bored out of my mind not being able to play because of my back, I probably have about 10 items in various carts on different golf sites right now, none of which I’ll be able to use for at least another month... 🙄

No joke, I bought a Sun Mountain 2.5+ stand bag this winter because I planned on walking during the summer when I’m up on Long Island. Now with the back thing I have going on, I’m thinking it might be wiser to get a push cart instead.

I think @Shapotomous just thinks of us as impulsive ho’s, when what we’re really doing is just looking to explore every option.

Every. Single. Option.

A few years ago my brother and I went to the Barrett Jackson Auction in Scottsdale - an absolute bucket list item for fellow car enthusiasts. I was amazed at the number of BMW's, Jaguars, Mercedes, and to a lesser extent Porsches, only about 10 years old, that were selling for what I thought were crazy low prices.  Like original MSRP's of $100K+ for less than $20K. I mean we're talking plush interiors, convertibles, and high performance.
We spoke to one of the staff about it and he said that the market was not particularly strong for them at that time,  But, even more a factor, is that the repair and maintenance costs were crazy high and frequently needed.  Like a spark plug change for $1200 on a V12 or a headlamp assembly for $600 [emoji33].
I know understand why when visiting places like Las Vegas one routinely sees exotic cars zipping around all over the place.  One can pick one of these up for a song and look like their a zillionaire.

Good for you! Mecum Kissimmee is on our list!

Dayuuum Tom, that sounds pretty wicked.  We were planning to get the J&J now that we're back home... but only days after getting on the call list, it's been suspended.  They do have Moderna, but I'm not so sure about the mRNA science.  We're now on that list but I have my hesitations 😕.

Sorry to hear you had such a bad reaction. My wife and I got both Pfizer jabs. No reaction after the first other than sore arms. The second for me was a sore arm and fatigue for a day. My wife on the other hand was fatigued for about a week. We're thankful for the minimal reaction and would do it again since it's a better option than getting covid.

Edit: just read a news article that Moderna is planning an annual booster 😱

Sorry you had such a bad reaction, my wife and I both had the Moderna vaccine and she felt “crummy” the next day but nothing that bad. I had no side effects at all.

until the well runs dry for other essential items, then you could mention needing additional funding as a "problem" 🤔

In all seriousness, I am pretty financially responsible, so any club buying is within my financial means.
