A-NOM-A-LY

əˈnäməlē/
noun
  1. 1.
    something that deviates from what is standard, normal, or expected.

i.e., today's round of golf...
...parred 4 holes - both of the par 3's, then #6 the short par 4, and #8, a 330 yard par 4...bogeyed 2 others, and double bogeyed the other 3.

I was using my mid-iron off the tee and for whatever reason it made sense and felt right today...hit it consistently between 160 and 180 yards...even hit my mashie 160 yards on #8 and 1 or 2 putted most greens.

It's nice to know it's at least possible to do, frustrating to not be able to do it with any consistency.

So I know this is an exception...next time out I will most likely revert to my normal round, where if I happen to snag a par somewhere along the way it will have been a good outing.

But like all blessings, I'll take 'em when I can get 'em and today was one of those days.

While researching for Crescent Moon Paradise I stumbled across this infomercial...
pretty racy for 1940...

...for Greyhound Bus lines, made almost 80 years ago in 1940:


The romantic backstory is a little bit hokey, but overall the film is well done and an interesting tour of the continental US by bus...starts off with a stop in good o'l Holland Michigan with a few shots of Tulip Time preparations.

Of course back then there was more of an emphasis on customer service and it was probably a half way decent way to see some of the country.  Today?  Well, probably not so much...

In any event, this is worth the 30 minutes of your life it will take to watch it.  Enjoy.

And now the rest of this sunny Sunday beckons, so...

later, mcm fans...
