It has very little correlation to actual golfing skill, so it's really tough for me to lose in mini golf to a teenager who bounces it off the wall 6 times.

I'm not bitter.


My son is 13. I will never, ever allow him to beat me in anything sporting. Ever!

I'll look for you in the police blotter. It's going to happen at some point.

I will beat him until he moves out! Then I'll beat his kids!

One of my neighbors is 82 years old. He lost his wife of 60 years yesterday. I've always said hello, always waved, always been cordial with them. But I've never gone over and talked with them. For whatever reason, I never crossed the street. I've just stayed in my own world and left them in theirs.

I walked over today as he sat alone on his porch, on the bench where I've seen him sitting with his wife for the past 4 years. I expressed my condolences and he asked me to sit.

We sat and talked for almost an hour. He told me stories, and I told him some. Smiles were exchanged, handshakes were extended. I could have heard all these stories from him and his wife over the 4 years that I've lived across the street, but I never did. I regret it very much. We parted as friends with lots of common interests. Wished I'd have gotten to know him sooner.

This is a great example of why it drives me mad that a certain group within my neighborhood refuses to ever leave their little street with around 5 homes.  You absolutely need to know the people living around you.  There's so much to be gained from it.

That's what I get for trying to be brief and not explaining it all. Yes It's my wife's sister's boyfriend.

 

Sorry to disappoint, by my family does not routinely go on the Maury Povitch show for crazy family in-breeding :whoops:

I'm sure if this belongs here, in the music thread, or it's own. Princess Leia's Stolen Death Star Plans, a parody concept album put to Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band.

 

(link is the first song, the whole album is there if you watch on youtube)

My dad wrote a book!  It's one of those projects he'd been wanting to do for a while, and after his diagnosis a few years ago he decided to write a self-help book of sorts detailing his experience.  I haven't even read it yet, but I'm proud of him.
