Called last night to see what time I work today, as our schedule changes every week. The closer told me 9-5. Get here at 8:45 to find out I don't work at all today. Lovely.

Just getting word that my 2 of my friend's friends were also in a car crash.. One has passed away and the other was in a coma, with broken wrists and brain damage and things are not looking good for him. Rough week. :neutral:
Really sorry to hear this. Prayers sent your way

That reminded me of another rant.

When I pulled into my driveway tonight around 1130, the headlight to my patrol car was on.
Not related to anything, but it just reminded me of a funny story.

One of our friends has a daughter who is a Sherriff's Deputy in Florida. She was going out of town for a few weeks, so she asked her dad to start up her patrol car every day, just to keep battery charged.

You can probably see what's coming....he does as instructed for a few days, but finally, the urge gets the better of him and he figures he has to try the siren/lights just once real briefly. He flips them on, but then can't figure out how to get them off. He ends up having to call the Sheriff's Department to ask how to get it turned off.

I'm sure some of his neighbors had a rant that day.

Jacqui gave me some crappy news while I was up in Iowa.

They are rebuilding all of the tee boxes, leveling several fairways and moving a couple of greens. That we already knew, and over the winter they were going to be closing several holes to play.

On Thursday they decided they were going to rebuild ALL of the greens as well, so instead of making it a two year project and make the course a nine hole track for two years, they are shutting down this week. That's SHUT DOWN until May of next year.

That's cool that they decided to just piss off people for 8 or 9 months instead of two years, but my wife works there! Luckily, she is going to pick up hours at the other courses in the meantime. The bad thing is that she has a long commute to both places, when we live just 8 minutes from where she works now.

The course should be gorgeous when they re-open.

Nope, 8 or 9 months it will be closed. The work would have taken two years had they left it open.

Ah, see kids, reading things twice is essential when you've been in Iowa for the weekend.

That makes more sense, I was thinking WOW. Even still, that will be a long time for sure and I'm sure it'll feel like even more being 8 minutes down the road.

Have you asked if they'll price match the big box stores? I remember my old pro shop doing that many times.

That sucks Smalls, but I am looking forward to seeing it when it reopens. Where are you going to play in the meantime?

Wrong, my jazz hearted friend. It may be enough for some, but I'm a man of tremendous Internet appetites.
