... Nice picture. I was playing my home course back in Chicago on a very hot humid day and found one of these guys in the middle of the fairway inching along at a snails pace toward the lake. He had a good 100yds to go so I thought I would help him and put a towel over him as he retracted into his shell and started carrying him. I got about 20yds from the water when he violently flipped, flailing his legs and fell out of my hands. Crazy heavy I thought he might have damaged his shell and when I tried to reach him again he snapped and flailed at his "tormentor". I watched for a few minutes but the guy didn't move so I walked back to my ball, hit my shot and when I looked back the hopefully uninjured fellow was slowly crawling to the lake. 

... Sometimes nature just doesn't need our help even if we have the best intentions. 🙄

I said hello and wished him well. 😄

... Impressive! I am learning Spanish but I have to admit I don't speak turtle.  

... I was playing with a couple a few months ago and when I went back to feed the rabbits and they scattered only to return before I got back to my tee box the lady said "Funny they run away and come right back. If you do this 5 times a week I would think they would know your voice by now!" 🤣

... Haha true dat and maybe they should change the name from Aguila GC to the ACME GC. The crazy thing is this course is completely packed all winter and spring and hard to get tee times but as summer approaches and all the snowbirds are back home it can be pretty empty. Yesterday was an extreme example as we started at 2pm and at one time the ranger told us only 3 groups were on the entire course so nature was having an awesome day with very few humans in carts disrupting their day. 

For your personal safety I’d suggest refraining from testing any Acme golf equipment.

Wow!  Glad to see you home!  I had to stay overnight until I had a bowel movement and be able to negotiate 2 steps by myself... but that was 8 years ago!!  Do your therapy!!  Painful but worth it.   Don't skip!

Don't worry I enjoy the whining. I think of it as a fine dining experience. You get to the restaurant, start off reading the menu, and before you know it your pallet is full and your ready to tell others about the experience in your own way.

At least your playing partners play the correct color ball! 

See @CarlH... I knew YB would love the whining.  YB is the Whine and Dine type.  😆

Owen and I met up with our buddy Mark before work to play nine at River Heights.  Mark's a better golfer than we are and his striking was really solid today.  He went +2 and said it was his best round in a while.  Owen was +9 and I was +11, no worse than double bogey on any hole.

After a few rounds of teeing off with 3 wood I went back to driver and struggled at first before Mark noticed how low I had the tee.  Mental mistake there.  Once I adjusted the tee height (and also stopped unintentionally trying to kill it) I had a couple nice drives and even out drove the others on hole nine on my way to my only par.

Almost same for me.  Had to Pee then take a walk up an down the hospital hallways.  Not sure how many but a lot.

lm amazed at the Process, surgery started @ 8:00 per SWMBO, she was watching the computer screen in the lobby that tracks patient progress. I woke up in recovery @ 10:00 they went thru all the vital then got dresses 11:00.  
physical therapy were there got me up and walking!!  SWMBO & my Buddy were there and after passing the minimum requirements we went home.

A home nurse and physical therapist will be here this afternoon.
