The Good Morning Thread

Heads up, Spies! Just heard that AT&T cellphone network is screwed up this morning so if you have them (like me) you may need to resort to WiFi calling if you can. Verizon and T-Mobile less affected.

that is so funny you should mention "shell wonderful world of golf" Yesterday was a down day for my wife and I, she was reading an article about a Stanley Thompson design golf course in Nova Scotia, I think it was called Highland Links, a course built in 1938... Anyway I heard that George Knudson and Al Balding played the course in a wonderful world of golf series in 1965... so we watched the darn thing, some good golf was played and fun to see some old footage... 

I got my DVR set to record the shows every time they are on the golf channel

YIKES! and double YIKES !!…

APOLOGIES and REVISIONIST TIME: 

I just noticed that I some how managed NOT to upload my version of the “ Bacon and Egg  Hot Tub “ The only picture that made the post was the one that I was trying to replicate. While no longer available… BURP… My version was very much like the picture posted; IF you can imagine my “ toast people “ looking like the mutant offspring of nuclear holocaust survivors. 
 Once again, apologies for intimating a skill level that I obviously do NOT possess.

My version of this Bacon salad is on the menu for late lunch… IF I can figure out what and how to make the green part.

Morning all! 

Early session at the range and I forgot my coffee. 🥱

A little anxious about today. We’re bringing our dog to have an ultrasound around his lower abdomen because the vet didn’t like what she was feeling when she examined him. Could be nothing. We’ll see.

Have a good one.

Sorry to hear about your pupper. Hoping for a positive outcome. 🙏🏼❤️‍🩹

Thursday morning my  MGS friends; may those joining the community call have no issues joining the call. I don’t know if it is the “ latest “ update to IPhones or if the AT&T contagion has spread to other elements of their network. Having an extraordinarily hard time posting pictures yesterday and today…. More than likely it is just operator error. 
  Hoping today is the day to break the streak of a week of poorly played golf. As bad as my near whipping by a whippersnapper was on Monday, the rounds of the last two days and have been a preview of what golf in HELL might be like. What game I have from 100 yards in, including the flat stick, is horridly horrific. Hoping to be able to channel the “Elderly” ability to forget recent events and start afresh and renewed. Although there is little doubt that my playing “ pals “ will relish in reminding me of my recent poor results. 
   May you all have a good Thursday that includes working phones.. If they don’t work just start celebrating “ National Margarita Day “ early and often.

Thanks, Matt. We’re good. The scan turned out negative. Our pup was bit concerned because he didn’t understand why he couldn’t have breakfast—a precaution in case he needed to be sedated. My wife had to hold on to front legs while I had to hold on to rear legs, so the tech could shave and can his belly. Not a fun moment for him.

I hate slumps. Chin up ol boy, you'll come out of it.

I could play golf every day and learn something new each time.

Good morning everyone! Another warm day with heavy winds. However, we are teeing off at 13:14. Should be another challenge in the wind. I really can’t complain as the weather has been great this week. Have a great day everyone!!

Play like a champion today!

She very well could be. Wife's family is all tall and I have a few on my side as well.

Morning all 🙂 Happy CC Thursday (patent pending).

  I've got Mexico Open coverage up on PGAtour.com, I've got Run Your Pool up as well, trying to gauge how much I'm going to lose by if Cam Champ keeps going crazy like he is (-6 through 9, including a bogey on his 1st...good god, man, SLOW DOWN FOR THE REST OF THE FIELD TO CATCH YOU). 

  Apparently @GolfSpy_BEN is tempting fate by suggesting I might say something outrageous, so let's just get it out of the way now.  A chickpea is neither a chick nor a pea.  Discuss.
