Happy thread

Alright a bit of a good story mixed with some bad but here we go. Both myself and my wife are Veterans of the Navy and we both did 4 years and got out. In 2017 my wife was diagnosed with cancer and she was hesitant to get care through the VA with how terrible their record has been. She's had stage 4 cancer for roughly 4.5 years now and the care has been Phenomenal. Her cancer numbers have gone down. Unfortunately her lung is acting funny and not doing the best but after all the care she has received and the high quality of it I'm confident she will get better. The VA has really stepped up their game for her and I hope other vets are getting a similar experience.

Nice!!  Yeah, every time I go to a casino, it seems like I'm in there for 16 years too!  🤣

You're not wrong mate...she hasn't met a casino she doesn't like (don't tell @Jmikecpa, we need to hang on to our money!). I actually walked away with $80 more than I went in with, and if you know my luck with gambling, you know I was happy with that.

ZX5's are back in the bag and I was able to get the first 27 holes in with the revised swing weight yesterday.  You can place me squarely in the group that can feel the difference in 2-3 swing weight points.  They feel better.  I'll be interested to see if I note any changes to my baseline (as originally built) swing and ball speed using my SC200.

Thanks fellas! I'm thrilled that she's finally back up in Boston in a dorm and with some new friends. She only had 1 semester her freshman year up at a different school, then home with us for a year and half due to the pandemic. So now she's at her dream school, living in a gorgeous converted brownstone in a quiet neighborhood, and already has plans to audition for a few orchestras and dance teams. I'm excited for her.

Maybe my wife & I are a little bit happy to have her out of the house too... our water and electric bills will be half of what they've been the past 1.5 years LOL!

Russtoherb's daughter only missed me by a few decades at BU.

[My loss, not hers, God bless her.]

They gave me a diploma  because it was cheaper than giving me a pension, 

I used to go all year round.  I'd find some summer courses that I "needed" in order to avoid having to get a summer job.

Then it was golf at the George Wright or betting the ponies at Suffolk Downs.  

Bleacher tickets at Fenway were $1, not twenty as they are now.

Occasionally, I even made it to class.

I am genuinely surprised that mom didn't opt for a late term abortion, say eighteen or twenty years after birth.

 

That's blessedly all in the past, along with the clay pots in the window

where recreational herbs would grow in the sunlight.

 

My very best wishes to your little girl, russtoherb, and I know just by looking at her that she'll do a lot better than I did.

Got out to the range and putting green with my 3 year old this weekend.  I need to get him out with me a bit more.  We had a great time and he is excited to get out again.

You'll get him turned around in no time 😉.
