Google Black Pearl Woodworks. My friend Mike runs the company and he’s DC of SOC for a large FD in S Florida. He makes a hidden drawer nightstand that is a work of art.

My realtor advised me the third house I've put a bid on will be a yes and they are accepting my offer. Guess I need to start building a coffee table that is a humidor and maybe have a concealed pistol location in it.

Congrats - now the fun really begins.

I’ve found a repeatable swing. Now to convince myself not to stray from it.

It’s a nice little open stance cut shot. The “go to” as the announcers would say on The Open about 9,000 times this week.

I present a lot of loft at impact anyways, I think this is why I can scorch long irons no problem, and why I got along so well with a 8.5° Driver.

This swing I’ve found is a little trap fade. I’m sure it’s ugly, but it’s deadly accurate, and less stress on my shoulder, and back.

That's great - I have learned to hit that shot well since my back issues and it does help. It requires less work in terms of my body. My traditional shot has been a draw so it's been harder to visualize but as Lee Trevino said you can talk to a fade but a hook doesn’t listen.

If I set up “square” I hit draws. Worked on it for a while and started hitting big hooks. I played a fade my entire life until 2014-15.

Mr. Trevino, and more recently Mr. Holmes.. yes Mr. Slow Play Have inspired me to revert back to the fade. I try to remind myself to just play the dang thing, but always convince myself that the draw is better...

Oh well. Just need to write it on my glasses lenses or something.

My son just turned 1 a week ago and I have to give a shoutout to my wife.  She does so many things for our kids including all the decorating for birthdays and such.  She really hit a home run or should I say hole in one with this latest celebration.

That’s pretty cool, she did a great job, very creative

Spent today on day 1 of 2 cutting down limbs and trees around my home.  It turns out when you rent a 50’ aerial lift on Friday, you can return it Monday for the price of one day.  Dad and I made a strong effort limbing up the mature Maples and Lindens.  Cutting is fun, loading the dump trailer and hauling to the town will not be nearly as much fun.

These trees were killing my gutters and roof.  Now that I’ve got some air flow and an east / west sun exposure it’ll change the entire dynamic.

Any time I get to play a round with my son, it's a happy. When he says "boy that was a lot of fun!! When are we going again?" it's an ecstatic.

Wasn't too thrilled at the start when we got to the first tee and were told by the foursome in front of us that the group teeing off had a tee time 20 minutes after ours, and they had the tee time 10 minutes after us but "wouldn't hold us up too much". Um... huh? A big part of me wanted to push the issue but I decided the weather was too nice and I was there to have fun with my son so I let it go and let them tee off in front of us.

Oh and we were on their butts all day long 🤣

Your a better man than me, I am at the age where I don’t hold back much, speak my mind. Unfortunately even when I’m wrong.

That’s the disclaimer because they know they are going to be slower than cow manure on a frozen field.

To be honest, I usually say something too. But I thought about it for a second or two and said "nah it's not worth starting the round out like that". It was the right choice based on how the afternoon went. By my count, the guy who commented about not holding us up must've lost at least 4 balls over the first 9 holes, two of them in the same water hazard, and seemed to be in the woods all afternoon, so y'know... karma LOL
