Why? Because it's almost the middle of summer!
I know there are those of you who don't see the logic here, but you're the same folks who'll be taken completely off guard by the zombie apocalypse.
You gotta prepare for these things, people.
If you don't, everyone else will be panicking at the appropriate time and you'll be the ones left behind asking, "what's all the hubbub, bub?"
...now that's my kind of preparation...
So this is the kind of day it was on the links...
...1 putt for par? Nope...2 putt for bogey.
...1 putt for par? Nah...3 putt for double bogey.
...1 putt for par? You get the idea.
Those were the only chances I had for par...for all the other holes, when I finally made it to the green, par was just a fond memory I had passed several strokes before while flailing away in the rough.
It was so bad that after the 3rd hole, I removed my cleek (fairway wood) from my Sunday bag and walked it back to my truck in the parking lot so I wouldn't have to look at it while downshifting into "simple golf".
But you know what?
I still enjoyed it...a beautiful summer day, strolling through the gorgeous country side.
Would have enjoyed it more if I hadn't completely forgotten everything I ever knew about golf, but oh well...stuff happens.
Spent a couple of hours in my backyard swatting whiffle golf balls with my hickories when I got home and straightened a few things out.
Lessee...left arm straight, interlocking grip, relaxed swing, fold in 2 eggs, beat until firm...
A momma doe appeared this week with her two fawns...
...gotta admit, they're cute little buggers.
We're blessed to be able to see so many different kinds of wildlife populating our backyard from time to time.
In the "odd coincidence" category, came across this internet ad...
...no, he's not a ringer for yours truly...but still...
The back patio project progresses with more concrete cutting..
|#4 son in a cloud of concrete dust...|
...so we're finally to the point where we'll pour new cement on Monday afternoon.
This is really great news because much to my surprise I've discovered that sitting on my butt in an office somehow failed to prepare me for the physical rigors of hauling broken pieces of cement in the hot sun all day.
It's taken longer than expected, but we finally have a bubbling rock fountain in our southwest landscape area...
...here's a closer look...
Not completely set in place yet as we're still checking fountain height and splash diameter...but it's pretty close.
...should be finalized by tomorrow.
The bubbling fountain water feature will be a nice complement to the otherwise dry southwest hardscape.
Sadly, we've come to the end of another excitin' edition of the Atomic Monster Cafe.
I know your lives are a little richer for having visited, and now you'll be fending off melancholy, waiting for the next edition.
Please know our army of talented and creative writers are already at the sparkling offices of the Atomic Monster Cafe...
No need to thank us...it's what we do.
later, mcm fans...
