    I just had this conversation with my small room mate:

    I was sitting on the couch with the smaller, stupider of our two cats, Chloe, and the wee one comes over donning a cape and asks, "Who is this lovely fe-lion?"

    I reply, "It is a feline, not a fe-lion."

    To which she says, "She may be dainty, but she is still a fe-lion." She then swirls off into her room.

    How far does this Nerf foam football travel?

    It would be odd if it only flounced around instead of shooting out!

    Good, that's enough for me. I can honestly say that if golf never existed, I would not give a ****.

    I used to feel the same way, but I have been thinking of taking a golf class for no reason other than additional advancement in the company. Everytime I hear anyone talk about anything, it was done over a game of golf. They fly around the country to play golf. I have been invited and I have to laugh. I pity anyone who comes within 6 feet of me and a golf club - even a mini golf putter. It'd be dangerous.

    I have managed to advance in the two years I have been there and would like to continue and fear golf would give me an advantage...or at least let me get to travel around for no reason other than to chase a white ball with a stick and try not to get it in the water.

    If it were not for all that, I'd have no interest. But who knows, maybe if I understood it I'd feel different.

    Tiger Woods is one of the finest players of golf and will become a legend like Jack Nicklaus.

    Therefore, one has to get used to this fact that Tiger Woods will always be there whenever golf is played or thought or spoken about.

    It is not a "stick". It is a "club".

    And golf is not such an easy game either.

    And golf is a game where you cannot blame anyone, not even the referee or linesman, if you mess up your game.

    A great game to play.

    And the great feeling of being with Mother Nature in all her elements!

    You must do a round of golf in blinding rain. It is such fun!

    Not true - I have heard many a tale of the wind messing up an otherwise perfectly good game.

    Somebody shot my dog

    I was brushing my dog after a long walk when I noticed she had a red swollen area around a single fresh puncture wound in front of her chest. My thought was maybe a nonlinear snake bite? Yeah right, I mean have you ever seen a one toothed rattlesnake? I guess that would be ole Snaggletooth!
    I have seen two rattlesnakes in as many weeks. I figured wait and see.Two hours later the swelling was noticeably increased so I took the dog the the "emergency" vet because it's Sunday. X rays showed a BB pellet had bounced of her ribcage and lodged just forward of her shoulder. The dog is going to be OK. You don't want to know how much this cost me.

    Wait until I find out who shot my dog...

    Wow no joke. People who shoot others' pets piss me off to no end. It takes a mean, cold person to do something like that.

    Stand Klar!

    My internal clock is all messed up. My dog and I always "stand to" mornings and evenings by taking long walks. Now she's on "light duty", meaning no walks per doctors orders.
    It's a good thing I don't know who shot my dog. This has allowed me to behave in a manner more befitting my station. If history is any guide I probably would have broken the miscreant's arm with a promise to visit again in six weeks for the other one. This is better.
    Now my dog and I have something in common, extra pieces of metal floating around inside. I wonder if she'll be able to tell when it's going to rain?

    Ah but then "Clud" does have different connotations.

    The type of club that you allude to, would not be what I think is a Club (
    Captial 'C'). It would be a place where I can take my guests for a quick drink, snacks, small talk and maybe dinner and cigar! Memebrs only

    What you call a Club would be a restaurant with a bar!

    Not true - I have heard many a tale of the wind messing up an otherwise perfectly good game.


    Not wind.

    Golf is a game for the sophisticated. Breeze would be more appropriate. Wind would be like "breaking wind". Though I admit that can mess up a stroke!

    I hope you are seeing red!

    Because you are as cute as Little Red Riding Hood and I am the Big Bad Wolf!

    Yeah, she's going to be OK. I think she liked all the attention. I've got the only dog who LIKES going to the vet!
