25 Years and Counting

CarlSpackler

903 views

Today is a momentous occasion my friends. 25 years ago, my wife and I got married. She mostly puts up with my insistence to play this silly game called golf. I guess that makes her a keeper. She only accompanied me once to the golf course and rode along watching me play. This was about 21 years ago when she was pregnant with my son and overdue. I convinced her that riding in the golf art might help to induce the delivery of the baby. I really wanted an excuse to play golf, and that was the best idea that I could come up with. I was wrong and quickly came to regret it. Several holes in she told me that I stunk. I have improved quite a bit since then, but it often takes a little honest reality to kick you in the arse and motivate you to get better. I'm not sure if that was her attempt at getting me to give up the game, or if she was trying to make sure that I never invited her out to the course again. All I can say is that the last 25 years have been anything but dull.

I bought her… this:

It's what she wanted!

P.S. She thinks flowers (and cards) are a waste of money.

That makes her a keeper too! Back in the day, the rule of thumb was to never buy anything that plugs in. That's hard to do now.

    • QST is a nice choice. The will go on sale 2-3 times a year. Also, prior gens are dirt cheap on line. 
    • Day 211 Did some 9-3 swings hitting balls off a mat, focusing on getting my left hip to keep turning through the swing instead of stalling. Goal is to have this feeling translate to full swing. 
    • No, the police knew George and probably did this premeditated. This case is unique in that regard. There are videos of police using that choke hold / maneuver on white people as well, with deadly consequences. By all regards, the policeman who used this choke hold did so with violation of written regulation on when it should be used. If they were even properly trained on when to use it. I feel like cops are given a patchwork of techniques that they hardly practice when to and how to use it.  Two of the cops were brand new to the force and were with a person who has been a policeman for over 10 years. Sorry to say, it probably would be career suicide to stand up to a cop with that many more years of service. It's not the right thing to do, but it's a very human thing that happens.   Especially when you hear stories about how police department culture can be. They would be branded snitches. Their lives would be hell for their career. Don't get me wrong, I wish they had the courage to stand up to policeman using the choke hold on George. I can understand their position and they're apprehension to not stepping in. Now, the third cop, who stood by and actually try to stop people from filming, should be hit with higher chargers than the two new police officers.  It should be training. It should be training that new police should know they can stand up and report on incidents like these.  I get you want people to magically have this thought, "Just treat them like family." But, that is a pipe dream that will never come true. Humans will forever treat people they don't know not as family. Still, you can treat someone with dignity and respect and still care for you family more.   
    • There is a teen near our area after contracting Coronavirus has now been diagnosed with another complication, Multi-System Inflammatory Syndrome.   Multi-System Inflammatory Syndrome in Children causes swelling and pain in various organs and muscles. Many who get it had been infected by or were previously exposed to the virus that causes COVID-19.   
    • No problem. You are very welcome.  One last thing, when you remove the grip and take the weight out, before you re-grip the putter stand the putter up on the ground  as if you were setting up to putt. The putter stands up by itself like some of those other putter brands made to do that. Of course once you re-grip it won't but I discovered that by accident and thought it was cool. The majority of weight is really low in that putter. Good luck.
