I smelled something that smelled like Fall a day or two ago. I love Summer and hate the other seasons but for the 1st time in years I was fine that it smelled like Fall. I think this is pretty much due to the fact that the Cubs are not going to be playing games in October this year. I have come to that conclusion. Oh well. GO Bears.

Joke of the Week

“Pull over the curb,” said the policeman. “You don’t have a taillight.”
The motorist stepped out, looked in back of the car, and stood quivering and speechless. “Oh, it’s not that bad,” said the policeman. The man mumbled, “It’s not the taillight I am worried about. Where are my wife and trailer?”

[10:13] taracr318: Very nice!
[10:14] taracr318: I am actually planning on going to the driving range
for lunch today just to take some swings
[10:14] taracr318: I need to get out golfing soon! Been awhile
[10:15] ziola1039: i have picked it up this year, i golfed a ton when i
was a youth but not a lot in past 10 years
[10:15] ziola1039: i only use irons
[10:16] taracr318: Driver can be a pain
[10:16] ziola1039: i dont even bring woods with me
[10:17] taracr318: I am gradually getting better and better off the tee
with the driver, but I don't even bring my fairway woods
[10:18] ziola1039: i love big hits as much as the next guy but i no put
more effort into chippin and puttin and it has made me more competitive

point in my life
[10:21] taracr318: Each year I am getting better and better it seems. I
have been shooting mid 80s this year when I was low 90s last.
[10:22] ziola1039: wow you rock, do you keep truthful scores? or do you
do what some folks i know do and wont take a score higher than an 8?
[10:22] taracr318: Again, I trust my irons and putting, but having that
driver there knocks off one to three strokes a hole sometimes
[10:22] taracr318: Truthful
[10:23] ziola1039: how often you play a year?
[10:25] taracr318: Anywhere from 10-30 times a year. I will go on a
rage when my brother comes in town and go 3 days in a row and than not
play for weeks.

weekend. That was nuts and very expensive!
[10:28] ziola1039: ya the money is just nutty, f that

[10:30] taracr318: You can got the the local public courses and they
don't care once you are away from the club house.
[10:30] taracr318: They dont send rangers around so it doesn't matter.
[10:31] ziola1039: i did that at the one by the lake and they came out
and told me to put my shirt on

[10:31] ziola1039: ya the one over there by the lake north of belmont
