Fared A Little Better...


...on the links today...1 par, 6 bogeys and 2 triple bogeys.

Was actually on the green in one - like you're supposed to be on a par 3 course - 6 out of 9 times, a minor miracle in my world.

If I could learn how to putt these fast greens - a vain hope, apparently - that would have been 6 pars.

Alas, the 3 putt remains the bane of my golfing existence...

The 2 triple bogeys were back to back...the 1st one was just a lousy tee shot into the weeds, so I intentionally took my drop into a sand trap...a mixture of punishment for being a jackwagon and a desire to practice sand trap shots.

The 2nd one was just me continuing to kick myself...

...instead of letting it go and focusing on the task at hand.

After that little bit of nonsense I righted the ship and finished with a par and 2 bogeys...the last one especially frustrating since it was a 2 inch tap in.

Oh always, it was some solitude, some exercise and a (mostly) pleasant stroll through the countryside.

Since it's the July 4th weekend...

...I would normally start this blog entry with a tribute to our country, but we're a year and a half into the post-America puppet regime of SloJoe...

...the cognitively impaired criminal illegally occupying the White House.

During his short tenure as faux-president, we've gone from:

- a booming economy
- efficient supply chain
- low inflation
- energy independence
- secure borders
- and a strong military

to where we are today:

- entering a recession
- empty store shelves
- record high inflation
- gas prices twice what they used to be
- porous borders flooded with illegal immigrants
- and a woke military...

...more focused on proper pronouns than defending our nation.

Every time the lunatic opens his mouth...

...he spews more lies, disinformation and unintelligible word salads.

No idea when this disaster will end, but guaranteed once his dementia finally renders him incapable of reading the teleprompter, his own party will get out the long knives and cut him loose.

Lord have mercy on our once great nation.

On a happier note, #5 son and his wife joined us this holiday weekend for fun and relaxation around the pool…

...around the fire…

...and, well, I can’t explain this:

Benjamin and I walked 9 on Ryan's Hickory Golf Course...

...where he actually chipped in for eagle on the par 4 #7...

...particularly rude if you ask me.

They also enjoyed time at the lakeshore... well as our usual neighborhood fireworks:

As always it was a delight spending the holiday with them.

Already looking forward to next year!

Meanwhile, up north...

...the Cherry Fest is underway and Larry is livin' the dream, enjoying the excitement of the Blue Angels...

...and the serenity of life at the lake:

It's not all fun and games since there is actual work to be putting in the dock each year...

...and cleaning up after the beavers:

Minor inconveniences when compared to the view from the Command Center North at the end of another beautiful day by the lake...

The good life.

And now for a quick fox trot...


...through the Parting Shots Department...
