From the most useless sheep dog I've ever owned. Banned from the farm now. The border collie learnt that the game of sheep herding is over once they're in their pen, so keep them away from it! Had a few issues with the livestock being banged about before Tex got banned from helping out.

In the early days of Saturday Night Live, there was one skit called “the adventures of mr Bill.” They were claymation creatures. They’ve have a real nice time for a minute until “Sluggo” showed up, and he would squish them all. Then it somehow got stuck to me during my softball years

When I bought my first computer, I had also caught the Chronic Golf Bug, and winter was around the corner. I found a Golf Forum on line and they asked for a screen name. It caught me by surprise and started looking around while thinking.

I bought my comp. from MDG Electronics. That was the easy part. The empty boxes were still laying around the basement. I didn't want to give the impression that I am a boxer since I'd been into Karate most of my life. (mdgboxes) I also didn't want to be a smarta$$ by adding 3 X, so I added two.

There you have it: mdgboxx

You're about 15 days too early with that one 😉

My best friend all throughout high school was Christopher. We looked very much alike, so much so that at a marching band competition his grandmother took an entire roll of pictures of me, thinking I was her grandson. His family commented we were so similar that we could be interchangable, and I was there so often they combined our first names and I ended up as Russtopher sometime around 1990 or so. It caught on with our friends and that's been my nickname ever since.

In 1987 as as 16 year old, I worked the summer at Jester Park Golf Course in Granger, Iowa. I have been playing my brother's set of Power Bilt Levelume irons. Now that I was employed and at a golf course, I wanted to buy my own set of clubs. I wanted the Spalding Tour Editions but the course pro did not carry Spalding. He was a Titleist guy so I bought the Titleist Tour Models in the chrome finish; wanted satin but did not have any. Retail on the 3-PW was $300 but I received the employee discount and paid $250. Took many hours  making $4/hour to save up that much. First round I played and I birdied the hole. I still have the irons and still play them. I did pick up a set of the Spalding Tour Editions. So Titleist87 is my user name in reference to when I bought my own set of irons.

I shot my first round in the 70's in 2005ish (a 76 on a short 9 hole course on the base where I was stationed in Turkey).  I shot a 77 on the course at McGuire AFB in 2010.  After a layoff of 5+ years, I returned to the game in the autumn of 2016, grinded for a couple years to get the game back, and finally had my best year ever last year putting up 4 rounds in the 70's... 75, 78, 78, and 79.  Now, I've rebuilt my swing in an effort to get better and, as expected, my scores have skyrocketed for the time being and I'm "seeking70's" again.

I've been a homebrewer for nearly thirty years. I decided to give my home brewery a name. Moose is (was) my cat. He's Siamese. My niece created the logo while she was in design school.
