You can’t keep your car clean worth a damn…

It supposed to be getting into GOLF season already, we got in 18 (well actually 17 on Saturday morning), then woke up to 6 inches of snow Monday morning…

1. Eighteen holes of match play will teach you more about your foe than 18 years of dealing with him across a desk.

~ Robert Lynd

4. If profanity had any influence on the flight of the ball, the game of golf would be played far better than it is.

  1. Passable at golf, recieved a blank stare from the Lady when I inquired about my sexual ability.
    Need to practice both more I suppose.

  2. SoCal…weather has been in the 80’s through most of the winter. I’m not rubbing it in because I know that you’re routinely traveling to tropical paradises where you show up, golf, surf, eat expensive meals and stay at resorts — and call it work. We all want to be you.

  3. SPE- LOL, NOT going there… That’s all on you my friend!!!

    Dammit- Heh… No double entendres there…

    LL- Yeah, right, YOU have been to those same “garden spots”…

    • Dear Sir: I am an older lady and do not partake of double entendres, singles maybe… Dammit

  4. Lesson I have yet to learn:

    Missing a short putt does not mean you have to hit your next drive out of bounds. ~ Henry Cotton

  5. :-) Don’t know about the golf part but it’s definitely get out of the house time.

  6. What Guffaw said. I’m ready for the snow to go. After all, the Iditarod’s over, so what’s the point? :)

  7. A golf course is the willful and deliberate misuse of a Known Distance rifle range.

  8. Hey Old NFO;
    Dang looking at the artwork…man I gotta step up my game…writing “wash me I suck” on cars is juvenile….Wait until the next snow hits Atlanta…I will be ready. And No I don’t play golf….shooting is expensive enough for me thank you very much.,

  9. Dammit- NOT going there… LOL

    Tim- A ‘bit’ pissed eh??? :-)

    CP- Feel free!

    PH- Yeah, heard that!!!

    Keads- OUCH!!!

    gfa/Rev- Good!

    Rick/WSF- Depends… LOL :-)

    Bob- Yeah, same here… And I can’t seem to ‘like’ an inexpensive ‘sport’… sigh

    Ed- Oh yeah, sucks in the cold!!!

  10. “A golf course is the willful and deliberate misuse of a Known Distance rifle range.”

    +1. ;)

    Ay, laddie, except for those of us with a Scotsman’s blood in our veins. “Amazing Grace” from the pipes followed by taps from a bugle always makes us a wee bit wobbly.

  11. RHT447- LOL, and yes Amazing Grace is the ONLY song I can recognize on a set of bagpipes…

  12. Never got in to golf, even though I took it for Phys Ed in Jr. College.

    I’d rather go bowling, which is another sport that the common man doesn’t understand, either!

  13. I was ready for summer 6 months ago.
    We have about 3 inches of fresh “spring” on the ground right now in NE WI, with another couple due by evening.
    As for golf, I’ll save the ball smacking comments to the others.

  14. drjim- LOL, yep!

    Rick- I’ve heard that, and agreed a few times… sigh

    EL- Ouch! Hope you can dig out by summer!!!
