To be fair... I was wearing shorts yesterday too... it was only in the upper 40's so probably not quite the same "shorts" weather... but I'll take it! 

It is pushing 90 here today. Summer will be brutal at this pace.

Depending on what part of Texas we all are living in come summer… We can try and convince ourselves that  we are “privileged ” to have unrestricted access to an exceedingly large sauna or dry sauna as the case maybe.

Just back from a golf ball fitting at Golf Galaxy.  Pleasantly surprised on a couple fronts.  One, the trackman data was great and two, I was actually striking the ball really well. This was a welcome change from the past indoor visits.  Earlier I went to the Hit the Hot List event and could barely hit the ball due to stage fright. It was pretty much a wasted event due to my lack of calm. 

This past weekend there was a Ping fitting.  The nerves were slightly improved and I hit the ball, but the death grip on the clubs exacerbated the slice to a level not seen in many a swing.

Today, I was loose and calm, swinging the club instead of fighting the club. Really got some good information on what make/model works best for my swing. I may actually pry open Gringotts and move away from my oh so frugal Kirklands.

This is great, I just started a thread on this.  Can you give me more detail on the actual ball fitting?

I have been in Myrtle since Feb 3rd. Got a dozen rounds in already. Grab the 1pm tee-time and it's been comfortably high 50's to low 60's. 

Perfect golf weather. The average high Temps in Scotland in July is 68 degrees. I'd rather 60's than 80's and 90's all day long......

60’s is long pants weather… I  am awaiting the the 115° heat indexed temperatures to return. I enjoy and probably need the heat to ease an appease my old bones.

The weather in Northwest Arkansas has been unreal this last week.

I'm reminded of a March week when I was in school. The Wisconsin baseball team came down to play the Hogs and escape their winter, but it was just about as bad at George Cole Field as it would have been in Madison. They played, but it was miserable, and the Badgers didn't score a run in four games. We could have used a week of weather like you just had. Wisconsin ended up dropping baseball about 10 years later.

Good morning Spies,

Ive been silent on here for a bit because of been blessed to spend my son’s wedding weekend with the entire side of my family welcoming a daughter to our family. I was privileged to be the officiant marrying Stephen and Kiera. I was with my parents, my sisters and their families and my aunt and uncle. The wedding was Saturday and on Sunday we explored the beauty of Joshua Tree National Park.


A note to the veterans and active duty here. If you have proof of service you get a free lifetime pass to the National Parks.


We leave Joshua Tree today and head to SoCal. We have one of nieces with us from NY. She is a golf nut like us. So we will visit Goat Hill Park, the Scotty Cameron Gallery and Torrey Pines. We won’t be playing but just taking it all in.

Wishing all a wonderful day!


That looks like an unbelievable spot for a wedding! Very cool that you were able to be the officiant for them!

Even though iam at my winter place my laptop shows Traverse City Michigan weather as that's where I spend the bigger part of the year and having grown up there I would say without pause February is a brutal month and a big part of what used to be 200 inches of snow per winter would come then. This winter thus far I don't believe there has been 30" of snow and this is the ten day???? I have never in my 55 years seen anything like this


Yep, it’s a real rollercoaster of emotions related to weather here in the mitten!!

I have an eye that doesn't miss much, this is also an epic photo with the screen of the phone camera showing another perspective in the same photo.

I was behind their photographer ☺️
