    And loud. My parents had one and you barely hear yourself think over it.

    I went there with my son that year. Broiled in the sun. We only stayed for a few hours before we headed out. Wasn't any fun in that type of heat

    Down here it was on and off drizzle in the morning and overcast all afternoon. Went up to BTV and it was definitely nicer though not what I would call a beauty. Didn’t have to go too far north to get away from wet pavement.

    Been a fun Open to watch. Was hoping Rory would come through. Woodland has shown nerves a couple of times but never buckled. Good for him. Koepka put some pressure on him and he held up. Great finish on 18.

    My parenting is like my golf game, some days everything seems to go great and I shoot a 79 and sometimes I can’t seem to do anything right and shoot a 97. Most days, it’s somewhere in between.

    What about us average to slightly below average at times dads?

    NNE Warm Season Thread

    From a sledding standpoint, it would be hard to find a better one. Pretty continuous riding for 3 months. I missed an early weekend because we had some rain that froze everything rock solid and then I missed a weekend because of a big storm with lots of wind with big drifts and downed trees/limbs. For that one, I wanted to let the groomers do their thing. I like to ride not dig out a 600lb sled every mile or two. I put on 1500 miles riding only on weekends. We never really went on the weeknight local 30-40 mile loops from the house like we usually do. It was a great season.

    I like that the Majors each have a different personality. The Masters is special because its the first of the year and can provide great risk/reward situations. The US Open is hard, sometimes bordering on unfair. I like to see the difficult set-ups that demand such intense focus and concentration. Having said that, the USGA goes overboard at times and can't seem to get out of their own way with some of the decisions they make. The British Open might be my favorite. It requires imagination and creativity. I like the fact that the R&A doesn't trick up the golf course and lets nature take it's course. If conditions allow for a low scoring birdie fest, then so be it. If there are strong winds and rain that make par hard to achieve, well, that's fine too. As for the PGA, to me, it has the least amount of character of the 4. I am glad that it has been moved to May and hope it can really start to develop a personality of it's own.

    The whining, complaining thing is one of the reasons I don't like Bubba.

    Spring 2019 New England Banter and Disco

    We were a little worried about that. I saw a doe in the area later in the evening and assumed she was waiting for people to leave before getting the fawn and the fawn was gone in the morning.

    Our golf course did too, as amazing as that sounds. It just happens to dry really quickly and 3-4 sunny, warm, dry days in a row starts to crisp things out. This should let us avoid irrigating for a little bit.

    As much as I love winter, and I do, it’s hard to beat these type of summer nights when the light lingers in the sky late and the smoke from backyard fires lingers in the air. This is as much of the reason that I love living in NNE as fall and winter. Now, I f I could get rid of mud season, life would be nearly perfect.
