Sure....keep rubbing it in guys! I've only got at least another 32 years of work left (GULP) before retirement 😅 haha!

When I started working here in 1970, one of the guys had a countdown to his retirement day in his office.  I don't remember the exact number of days left, but it was more than 3000.  🤣

My BIG boss came in yesterday to give me my 10 year pin and congratulated me for my service...... not really sure where those years went, to be honest. I'm looking at anywhere from 2-5 years (my choice-so far) before I have that NICE golfers schedule.  

My wife never gave ME a pin or congratulated me on our 10th anniversary!  I'm impressed!  🤣

Time will tell but atleast with that you get the productivity of people coming in and collaborating as well as being home and being productive there. We all know everyone is doing stuff around the house when they are home..... 

I also know that people play golf when they are working from home.  The number of people playing golf at my course during weekdays has more than doubled in the last 3 years... and they are not old people like me!!

Well, looking at it that way, I’ve only got about 8,200 days, give or take a few, until I can hang it up! 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

I played Tuesday with someone in our group who was obviously on the clock working "from home" he took 2 or 3 phone calls and cut out after 9 holes because he had to go set up his laptop in the car. 

He was considerate to walk away far enough his conversation didn't bother anyone, and he was a tall guy with long strides so he kept pace with the rest of us walking.

Good for him for finding a cheat code.

I finally got caught up on this thread; last posted here yesterday morning and I couldn't believe the number of posts in 24 hours!!

Good Morning all.  Yesterday was absolutely gorgeous; sunny and very little wind. My wife and I played with a couple of friends that we haven't played with since last year.  It was a social day, and scoring was pitiful, but we had a great time!!  After the ice delay I started peeling layers off; it's golf shirt weather!!  

Well, until today that is... back to temps in low 50's but still sunny.  Wind warning:  Southwest winds 20 to 30 mph with gusts up to 45 mph expected.  So my day will be looking a lot like this...

Not sure if I mentioned it SWMBO is a animal lover, big time.  About a year ago she noticed some cats in the back of a strip mall she goes by on her walks.  Yup Wild/Feral cat colony.  Only a few and looked abandoned not really feral.  Well she took to it and adopted the colony which means to “we adopted” the colony and that’s OK.  So she has been feeding/watering them every day, twice a day and has become very attached, especially 2 gray & white.  The bride was noticed and SWMBO has become good friends with other people who try to “trap/ neuter, spay/release or find homes  if they are friendly enough.  There’s a lot to more to this of course.  
anyway I was working in the yard yesterday and she came back from her walk/feeding and could tell it wasn’t good, one of the gray/white cats was hit by a car and removed by community watch.  Some people in the bank/Subway saw it happen and where there when SWMBO showed up to tell her and console her.  Still a lot of good people in the world.

Morning all, let’s knock out this Friday(even though it’s my Tuesday) Weather hopefully turning for the better even though it’s a bit more chilly right now. Forgot my lunch box on the counter at home which is a bummer but makes for a good excuse to visit my favorite spot in the city for lunch! Hope it’s a great day for everyone!

Good morning from an overcast but not frozen WNY on this Friday ☕ hot coffee keeping the inside as warm as can be while Mother Nature sorts herself outside, it's forecast to be a typical wet and windy end of March in these parts. 

No problems getting on @Rickp and logging in to MGS though yesterday (as I always do before any online meeting) a restart to be ready for the MGS Community call late midday and on the restart the laptop indicated it was doing something like a CHKDSK that took about a half hour and I must say it's speed this morning is exponentially faster  💻

Hope golf is a part of your day ⛳

Hey everyone, trying my first post here!  Good morning!! 

What do you have planned for golf today, this weekend? 

My 14yo Son has HS golf tryouts tonight (in a dome because we still have like 8" snow on the ground), then we are heading to Birdi Golf tomorrow to play 9 (Bar with Sims).  I'll post picks over the weekend!

Welcome! Definitely one of my favorite threads right here and it’s new! (Already 45 pages is ridiculous but I guess we have had about 45 days since it was started so makes sense 😂)

Good luck to your son and tryouts. Do they have it in the school gym or do they go to a sim?
