Talked to my mom and she said my dad is not doing very good.  He’s been telling me that he is better than he is.  She has been gone for 3 weeks, got home yesterday and said he hasn’t been to work since she left and he’s barely eating…

We’ve managed to keep that crap out of the Shanks Haus for 2 years, but I’m afraid our defense shield has been infiltrated.  Our youngest is not feeling well at all, and a lot of his classmates have it.  🤦🏼‍♂️  Everyone loves the little dude so they are constantly hanging out with him, siblings included.  We might all get it at once…

Wish us luck.

Sorry to hear all this. I hope for a speedy recovery for anyone who gets it. Hopefully most of you get lucky and miss it.

Very sorry to hear that your dad isn't doing well, I hope he gets better soon. Hopefully it'll be mild if you get it in your household and I hope that's not what your youngest has.

Good grief Alan... you're giving a whole new meaning to the adage "when it rains it pours" 😬.  Hang in there and all the best getting through the list.

Should be posting in the happy thread about our Disney trip, which was great!  Got home with one kid getting stuffy and coughing... COVID positive so all of us have been home this week... trying to keep the other two away but now my other son has it too, and he's def got it worse.  I always feel bad when the kids aren't themselves because of not feeling well.  

Thankfully overall still very mild, but it is hard trying to keep everyone separated as much as possible.

Sorry to hear about the Kids and happy it’s relatively mild.

Also happy Disney trip was a great experience for them.

Oh yeah, they loved it. We didn’t tell them we were going. Woke them up early, drove to the airport “to pick someone up” with their luggage hidden in the back and told them when we parked. It was awesome. 
 

I also got this sweet hat too:

it helped with some of the rain and drizzle we got.

Just found out the course I play 95% of my rounds on, plus had the only driving range in town, is closing Feb. 14 until the new ownership opens it back up. 

My main issue is, the guy that bought it runs the other course in town and seems to have a dislike for singles playing his courses, unless you want to do it at the end of the day. I understand it's a business and he can run it how he wants, but he ran this course in the beginning and there was an uppity feel to it. 

He reopened the other course and I haven't played it yet, and I was so excited that it reopened but after trying to make a tee time as a single and getting a dismissive tone, I have yet to play there.

Day 14149 (days I’ve been on earth), wife and two kids have the Vid (worried for my wife, her asthma and not so good immune system doesn’t lend itself well), rabies shot 2 in the books.  Cannot wait to sleep on the floor tonight in the dining room, trying to space people out is ridiculous, but 4 of us are healthy… so far.  I knew I should have bought that hiking equipment sooner.

I hope everyone else is doing well.

That stinks. They don't even try to pair you up with a twosome or threesome? First time I heard or anything like that. Usually courses are greedy and want to squeeze you in somewhere.

Well you can always come play my way if you don't mind a long drive.

They didn't that day. It might be different now that it's more than a month out from reopening. I just haven't called since. I do want to play there, it holds a special place in my heart considering that's where I got introduced to the game and have lots of great memories on that course.

My “home” course went through a similar change.  They ended up ruining 2 of my favorite holes.  But the ownership was trying to turn an jeans and undershirt welcome with your own cooler into Bushwood country club, it didn’t last long.  Now you can go out there and see people with side by sides as their cart… what a transformation.

There's a really nice muni up the street from me that's really well kept, very good rates, but also has a strange dislike for singles. They won't make a tee time, and ask you to just show up and wait if "if there's an opening". Unfortunately opening for them doesn't mean a twosome or threesome to tag along with, it's a vacant slot. Not even worth trying on weekends. Bummer too cuz that'd be easily my most played course otherwise, I really enjoy it.

Had a bad wind storm the other day. Had some shingles ripped off the roof right near the ridge line. Unfortunately its about three stories up and the roof is at a 45 degree angle. I had the roof replaced 2 years ago as well.  In about an hour I'll be venturing up to see if I can patch it for now. Once spring shows up then it will be warm enough to flex the shingles enough to fix it right.  I have visions of @BIG STU 's ladder incident on my mind right now.

SWMBO has “banned” me from ladders about 8 years ago after other guys had made the Dive.

I still use them for small heights when  she’s not looking.

Oh man do be careful and make shure to have someone butt the ladder for you like they do in the Fire Department. Now days anyone mentions a ladder I shudder. My lifelong friend is a 3rd generation owner of a commercial paint contractor company. He is like 3 years younger than I am. His oldest daughter has been on his butt for years about climbing ladders. He has not been up on a ladder since my accident. I mean 5 feet messed me up just think like what 15 feet or more will do. I can not even watch the commercials on TV about people climbing ladders cleaning out gutters. I absolutely have to cut it off.

The Insurance carrier that carries our insurance banned Truck Drivers climbing on ladders after my incident. They make the shredder scrape the trailers out now. They also said if any drivers got tickets for small debris blowing out they would take the SC DOT and NC DOT to court but drivers were not to climb up in trailers period. The only exception is if they had someone butting the ladder. In my case it may have or have not done me any good because in my case the ladder collapsed. That opened up another can of worms that is still pending because my ladder had no OSHA tag or weight rating and had not been inspected and was more than 3 years old. I can not go into detail because it is still pending between our State Industrial Commission ,OSHA , the Ladder manufacturer and the company I was working for. 

Edit---- You have a smart better half wish mine had said something but really she had no idea what I did in daily operations
