God please bless and keep Deb's hubby and his companions, and use them to accomplish your will. And wrap our dear Deb in your love in his absence.

I really was kidding about my "firsts" dig earlier. I mean, I was mostly kidding. I'm a kidder.

The rain has stopped for now. We'll see. I'm paired with the Big Dog tomorrow. He and I are playing a twosome that includes a guy with a 2 handicap and and guy at 25. Big dog and I are 16 and 18 respectively. He's sandbagging at 16 though. And I'm an 18 because I haven't picked up a club since I played this event two years ago. I might be sandbagging...but inadvertently if so. I did have two birdies on the first nine today.... I still hope it rains all night and is storming in the morning so I can just go play pool all day tomorrow. (me and big dog don't always get along......)

Your fears are well founded, Deb.

Claiming "first" on threads is a sign of really, really lonely losers. JOM may be the last place on the internet not to shame such a practice. But honestly, that's nothing compared to trying to claim "first" by using some cutesy term that isn't an exact claim to being first. I'm sorry, it's true. Loser schtick extraordinaire. It should stop. Look, if I have to shame every person who tries it, I just might. Or I might not. I'm not that invested in it. But I might. I like shaming people.

We actually got 27 holes in today. Yay! I shot really well. Yay! Two birdies on the first nine? Yay! But it started raining like Noah was gathering animals at about 1PM today. Boo! And it hasn't let up. Boo! Now the parking lot at the condo development is starting to flood. Boo! And I might have to move my car just to keep the engine dry. Boo! I could use a rainbow about now.

Dave: I thought you said once you were under 40. I'm sure I did. I was under 40 up until Groundhogs Day 2010.
Dave: I thought you younguns couldn't do cursive. How youngun do you think I am? I was certainly taught cursive in my schoooooolin. Maybe you are older than you thought you were?
narc: Actually some of the models have it moving way off the east coast. Indeed. But that wouldn't affect a forecast of 100% chance of rain. Big storm, big tails......
I mean my safety flare. I always carry a safety flare on me. I don't know what anyone else thinks I meant.
Imma just pull it out and swing it around.
Beasts: I'm afraid to ask what the J-O-M sign is. Does it have something to do with squirrel butts? Well, I thought I would just sign the letters.
So you're telling me there's a chance....
Jane: Where is Hit? I wish I could enlarge the font for this but here goes........ HARRRRUMPH!!!!! I told you exactly where I was and frickin' posted a pic from my condo balcony to boot. Is it too much to ask that when I do such a thing that I am not later asked where I am? I mean, I'm sorry, I didn't draw a map. I should have. I won't ever make that mistake again. HARRRRUMPH!!!!! BTW, FTSAH, one of the sales guys just got in. He had a flight into Charleston. I want you to guess who was waiting with him at baggage claim. Remember, Joaquin is coming. Go ahead, guess. Nevermind, I'm going to tell you...... Jim Cantore. Good news is - maybe you will see me making a cameo on the Weather Channel. I'll be the crazy drunk guy making faces behind him without a shirt on. You'll know it's me because I'll sign J-O-M while doing my antics.
Will NO ONE post the image of the Modern Man from that article: Heartless bastards.
Ah, Brunswick County, North Carolina. You are not going to believe this: It's raining. Actually, it's not raining hard at all. Still calls for a Titos though.
Waders? Check. Life jacket? Check. Goggles? Check. Snorkel? Check. Ok, all packed. Ready for our golf weekend! Bye now.
via Althouse, this NYT article has the premise: The Federal Election Commission forbids direct coordination between campaigns and super PACs, lest candidates effectively rely almost entirely on the huge, unlimited donations of a small number of billionaires. But in 2016, the groups are aggressively exploiting gray areas and loopholes in the rules, few of which the commission – deadlocked with its three Republican and three Democratic members – has hastened to close. It focuses on Carly, but mentions several other R candidates (at least it didn't use the phrase "skirting the rules" - that would have been sexist). You know who it doesn't mention? Hillary. (so it probably could have used "skirting the rules" as everyone knows that you can't be sexist toward a Republican woman) Anyway, funny leaving Hillary out since we just saw this over the weekend:
to fight violent extremism not just with weapons but with ideas, jobs and good governance Time to repeat Obama's speech after the shootings at Virgina Tech in 2007? You know, the one where Obama pays lip service to the dozens who were killed and then proceeds to lecture us about "other kinds of violence" - like the violence of kids getting a bad education and the violence of someone having their job shipped overseas and the violence of a radio shock jock calling a college basketball team some mean things that made them feel bad about themselves.
“This means defeating their ideology,” he said. “Ideologies are not defeated with guns. They are defeated by better ideas — a more attractive and compelling vision.” Time to repeat that story Obama heard from his grandpa - about his dad walking into a bar with a loudmouthed racist complaining of having to drink next to a black man? You know, the one where Obama's dad defeated the racist's ideology by talking to him about the universal rights of man or whatever. And not only defeated the ideology such that the racist became unracist - but the now unracist bought the drinks for the rest of the night and paid his dad's rent for the next month. Glory hallelujah.
Calm down all you people badgering me to reveal the UD word I submitted. It's covertiness.
