Monday mornings can be hard, especially if one is facing a work week ahead. I enjoyed golfing before work for two Mondays in a row. It got those weeks off to a fun start. Not so much this week. Bad weather scuttled any thought of golfing this past Monday. I have to say that I missed the feel of a club in my hands on Monday morning. But I can’t control the weather. I went to the store to find a club to help start every Monday in a fun way, regardless of weather. I think I found one. Take a look.Continue reading “Clubbing”
One week ago, I golfed for the first time in 23 years. I sometimes ask in posts on this blog if I’m a bad guy. I didn’t think I needed to ask if I’m a bad golfer. I was a bad golfer 23 years ago. Why would a 23 year abstinence change things? But I surprised myself that I hit more good shots (for me) than terrible shots. I was feeling pretty confident about my golf game. As I walked the fairway with another golfer from my foursome, I mentioned that I hadn’t golfed in 23 years and that he is welcome to deliver a punchline. I fully expected him to say, “I can tell.” Instead, he said, “In that case, you’re playing well after all these years.”
I wasn’t quite sure how to react. Maybe I am a good golfer. A few days later, I received an invitation to today’s golf date. I mentioned how surprised I was to get another invitation despite my atrocious golf game. Rather than another compliment, I heard, “It’s not about the golf.”
So, I am a bad golfer after all. But I’m also okay with that. It truly isn’t all about the golf.
It was nice to see Trump honor International Women’s Day yesterday by hitting from the Ladies tees during his round of golf.
BREAKING NEWS: To commemorate 9/11, Donald Trump will play 9 holes today with only 11 clubs in his bag. He will honor the victims by NOT using a pitching wedge.
Do you think Donald Trump understands or cares about the irony if he goes through with his plans to shoot 18 today at his Bedminster golf club?
We are appreciative of our intrepid Flies On Washington Walls who stowed away on Air Force One so they could sit in on the Trump-Putin Summit.
Yeah, yeah, I know the title is misspelled. Par for the course, right. Hmm, I wonder what this post might be ultimately about.
Today’s normally scheduled post which does contain a reference to my toenails has been bumped to tomorrow in lieu of a Special Jim Flanigan Looks at the World Investigation. We were simply not satisfied that the Donald Trump – Kim Jong Un summit in June was canceled because North Korea called Mike Pence a dummy. They certainly did call him that, but no harm since everyone knows he is a dummy. That is no reason to cancel a summit that will legitimize a brutal dictator. We looked further and this is what we uncovered …
Reporters cornered Donald Trump today at his New Jersey golf resort to ask him to rate his administration’s response to the devastation in Puerto Rico on a scale of 0 to 4. Trump replied, “Fore!”
Although I love music, these are not Tom Petty thoughts. I wish. I’m afraid they are more Trump petty thoughts. Am I petty to be thrilled at the forecast today in Bedminster, NJ where Trump is vacationing?
I’ll bet he’s looking forward to another day of women’s golf in his private box! I’m imagining a whole lot of this going on in the Trump suite …
