Morning Spies.  On duty, so coffee is flowing and hoping for minimal public shenanigans for the start of the new year.

I'll beat @Samuel09152to it...

Very early good morning Spies on the first morning of 2024. I would like to say it has been an uneventful morning here, but currently at the local hospital emergency room as SWMBO had a fall at her sisters house and hit her head on a wooden cabinet and now requires some stitches to close up the wound. All that happened without anyone having any alcoholic beverages. Once I get out and back home it will be bedtime so I thought to get this out of the way before tomorrow afternoon if I get the sleep normally needed.

Hope your day and start to the New Year is all you want and need it to be, and something enjoyable is in your plans.

Oh no, sorry to hear this. Hope she feels better soon!

Good morning everyone. Today I begin my fitness goals which begins with dry January. 31 days to detox and a more structured diet should be a good start. Hope everyone is able to get off to a strong start to reaching their 2024 goals as well!

Day one of the New Year my friends.  
  First things first… @rkj427 hope your lady is recovering and not in to much pain. 
@Josh Parker hope the fireworks just woke the little one and did not scare her. @unccross you got this.. Just stay away from any cranky old men with diminished social skills. SOUCRE:  Hanging with me has not translated into a lot of C-suite gigs for my mentees. 
  On the topic  of fireworks; the commander of the Bride Bunch had me escort her to the public fireworks event celebrating the incoming year. When the fireworks had ended, the would be ruler of all things; looked at me and said… “ Make them do it again “… I informed her that regrettably for her, that her realm currently did not include the city. As you might expect, she was not pleased and she immediately added it to her never ending  “ to do list “. 
  Minor blow up during my round yesterday. The start was as bad as the previous round had been. In about 7 holes of the way through the front 9… I got an anonymous note from the bag concerning a job slowdown instigated by the Edison’s. I had a quick discussion with the bag and pointed out that it was hard to tell if the Edison’s were engaged in a work action, considering they had done so little positive work. This was a “Aha moment”for the rest of the bag, the bag quickly agreed to go back to work. Needless to say the back 9 actually looked a lot  better with acceptable results. All in all, it was a great end of the golfing year… with a wonderful weather day, with fabulous fun people and it was still golf, even if at times it didn’t look like it. 
  No golf to start the year. The wife person is having me close at hand to do some grunt labor that she has planned. 
  May this New Year be everything that you and those you care about and that care about you, want it to be.

Good morning spies and Happy New Year!

Had a very chill New Year's Eve - watched football during the day and watched a movie at night with the Mrs. while we ate some Chinese food. Might need to be a new tradition for us instead of a party!

Have a simulator session booked this morning; will be interested to see how the first swings of 2024 feel after a couple weeks off. 

@rkj427 so sorry to hear about your wife's fall. Hope recovery is quick and painless.

I hope everyone's start to the New Year is special and that golf is on the agenda!

Happy New Year everyone - just got thru watching our nephew’s high school band march (even caught a glimpse of him playing) in the London New Year’s Day Parade (those kids fund raised for 2 years to be able to go).  It’s a new year and time to look ahead to what ‘24 brings…

That's awesome! As a 9 year band parent, I can totally relate!

Good on your nephew and his musical mates… A lifetime memory made.

Good afternoon and THANK YOU to all the Spies for their kind words, and thoughts. 👍  😎

We got back home from the ER about 5:30AM, so yesterday was truly a long day for me, as I typically am up and on the move about that time.

They performed a cat scan to make sure there was nothing damaged internally, stitched her up (6 stitches) and gave her a tetanus shot, wrapped it all up and made sure she could move around without any issues before sending us on our way.

She is still currently still asleep, but I need to make sure I am on a somewhat normal schedule for my back to work Tuesday I am so not looking forward too!

Hope that your day is the best it can be, and that something enjoyable is in your plans.
