Happy Sunday

Just imagine being in a room with these two together. Amazing…

Moving on….

Yesterday was our 2nd Saturday Golf Tournament. I played moderately well with two birdies but I just couldn’t putt. I must have left six or seven putts short of the hole.

I thoroughly love my Garmin S60. With it and the scorekeeping abilities, I very rarely pull out the rangefinder during a round anymore. So many features between syncing with my phone, step counter, slope corrections that you can turn off and on, etc.

Plus it gives you a nice breakdown of the entire walk (round of golf).

Highlight *

Not golf related. My daughter, Joy, is down and we’re having an excellent time. She’s growing up so fast and will be ten years old this month. Holy Cow! Where has all of the time gone?

Oprah. Give me a Break

Oprah

Well, I reach my limits to the sanity that is our country. We are now trying to appoint Oprah as our next president. Have we all lost our mind? Are we all forgetting what she did for a living? She interviewed people and made a lot of money doing it. How does that give her any kind of a credential for being our president? It’s a rhetorical question. Goodness people we need to get a grip.

I mean it can’t be any worse than say appointing a reality TV star as our president. Have we just reached a point now in our history where celebrities are the people we want to lead us? It’s absurd to me.

I guess even Ivanka got on board the Oprah train. *Shaking my head*

But here are some of the funniest moments from the Golden Globes:

Fury Unleashed

Trump vs The Book

Surprise! Surprise! The author of “Fire and Fury” got access to the White House and campaign season. What do people have to say about our President? According to the author everybody thought that he behaved like a child. Is anyone really surprised? At all? This book just confirms all that most normal people already thought. That we elected our local village idiot to be President of the United States. *Slams head into desk*

I did buy the book. It was immediately available for my Kindle Paperwhite at midnight. Almost nothing better for a reading experience. Why? It’s easy to take notes with the Kindle Paperwhite and my big pet peeve is that I don’t need to have the book hanging around on a shelf for years.

Spicer…

Sean is finally making the rounds. I wish he’d make a larger attempt at realizing just how silly he sounded at times. He claims that when information came available later that they tried to correct the record. Uh. No. It got shuffled under the desk and you didn’t. Nobody expected perfection. Nobody wanted to just put you to the fire so to speak. But just stand up and say you made a mistake.

New Year’s Day

NY Eve

Thanks to our friend’s Terri and Andy for hosting another awesome New Years Eve. The food was excellent and to top it all off, this was the year that I didn’t overdo it. Mariah Carey did her song before midnight and achieved full redemption. Then they kicked it over to Britney Spears in Las Vegas and she wasn’t that bad.

Britney – Work Bitch :

NY Day

Woke up in the morning for a round with the buddies. Like clockwork one or two of them have canceled. Gary and I joked this morning that we should have a betting table and place bets on what time we find out people cancel.

Enter Big E. He’s become one of the guys that I can count on for a solid round of golf.

Best Moments of 2017

Some of these are a downright catastrophe. I just couldn’t help but list them as a highlight of the year. I’m not ranking these in any particular order.

10.

We cannot forget Mariah Carey’s Awful performance in 2016 – start of 2017.

 

9.

Michelle Obama’s expression’s caught on camera at the Inauguration.

8.

BBC Dad who gets interrupted by his family during the interview.

This led to many well-done parodies.

7.

We cannot forget Donald Trump using Twitter even after he told various news outlets that he’d use it sparingly. An example below of it blowing up in his face.

Trump had no choice but to try and laugh at it….

6.

Our Solar Eclipse. Anyone remember the need for everyone to buy the glasses so that you’re don’t potentially damage your retina’s? Amazon and others were selling like crazy.

5.

Donald Trump takes on the NFL

4.

Harvey Weinstein.

Who can forget how badly he crashed and burned?

3.

The #MeToo moment on Twitter and Facebook started by Alyssa Milano.

2.

Matt Lauer terminated from ‘The Today Show’. It’s come to light that he had an automatic door lock for his office installed. Argh! Many other moments.

Tiger Woods returns to golf this year.

Just barely missing out. This was the year of ‘The Last Jedi’

Hello Thursday

Yesterday was a good day to get out for some golf. Mid-70s when we finished the round. It would have been better had I played some good golf but it is what it is. Below is my buddy Eric who was determined to either 1. Be festive 2. Support SDSU 3. Be a distraction to me on the tee box and putting green. I’ll even go with all three.

New Practice

I’ve always thought for a while that it might be a good idea to reflect at the end of the year and write down the items that you did well and you want to take into 2018. Also write down the items that weren’t positives that you want to leave in 2017.

 

Golfing Saturday. Happy Christmas Eve

Golf with the Guys

It was good to get out with the guys for what turned into a slightly competitive round of golf. It was excellent that we got five people to show up and play an excellent game of Wolf.  The “Doctor” Keith McKee was in the house feeling pumped after his nearly $700 poker win. So I expected a good match. What I didn’t realize was that he’s in the middle of working on a swing change to try and get some additional yardage due to Father TIme. That leads to some rather erratic shots from him while he’s working on getting his wrists to fire faster into the ball. It’s all timing and he’ll have it down before you know it.

Yesterday was one of my better rounds and the first sign that I’m back from my injury.  I got to the 18th hole and both my partners were in trouble and I had a bunker shot. Keith walks up to me and says ,”No pressure you have to make it.” I literally was trying. I still knocked it close enough for an easy tap in to force a tie. I’ll take it. I need pressure situations like that.

Star Wars: Last Jedi

I’m seeing this again with my daughter Joy. She’s all of nine years old and has seen all of the films. I’m curious to see what her take on it will be as I feel the film is really geared towards an audience of ten to fourteen years old.

RIP Dick Enberg

One of the last few classy broadcasters that always tried to highlight the importance of the game and tried to view the positive. He’ll definitely be missed.

Last Night…

We got everyone together for a pint at Hooley’s. Always good to have a family gathering.

Cheers!

Christmas Eve

Last bit and I hope everyone has an awesome Christmas Eve. My favorite Christmas movie of late is….

‘Office Christmas Party’

But my favorite Christmas scene – just for pure comedy. You can’t go wrong with Chevy Chase.
