Never made it to the golf course yesturday. I washed my car instead.

Had a great meeting with a prospective client. They seemed excited about what we proposed and took the contract to go over it. Then I get the call later that night from my inside man that my portfolio section of our site had some errors and problems (doh!) and that the client was going to be browsing through there. I fixed the errors like in 5 mins but the client had already been in there 30 mins prior. I felt like such a loser! Needless to say I haven't heard back from them. I can't believe I dropped the ball like that!

Going to Scarborough Faire this weekend! Highland Days!

Can you say braveheart?

Sorry I haven't blogged. It's been a busy week.

Played golf on Saturday. Showed up with a lot on my mind (bad way to start) and played a horrible game (I'm behind on posting the score cards, I know).

The dot-com crunch is circling around even here at work. Not sure how long I'll be here. Working on some freelance bids I hope go through.

Other then that, my trust is in HIM.

I was able to get through 18 holes in the wind yesturday. I played with a friend of mine and another player that we were matched with.

I played a 9 hole course and went around twice.

On the 282 yd - par 4 - 8th, I sank a 22 ft putt for eagle. That's right, I said EAGLE!
I was on the green in one and made the putt (score card coming).

On the 301 yd - par 4 - 5th (14th hole second time around), I was on the green in one again and staring at my second eagle putt for the day... in my life.
I made a birdie.
It was a good day.

I was +27 for a score of 93 (par 66)

This is going to suck!

Winds are gusting up to 35 mph right now. That's going to reak havoc on my golf game!! You know how hard it is to putt when the wind is strong enough to move your ball on the greens? My card is going to be embarassing...

Not much going on.

I am amazed at the amount of usage I am presently involved with by the Spy in the Sky. It's more then humbling.

So, after C's soccer game on Saturday do I:
- a. play golf with Dan, Robin and John
- b. go to traders village with the family
- c. go to Scarborough Faire with the family

We're back.

Inspite of the hillbilly surroundings (pix coming soon), the people were very nice and very hospitable. It was definately a stretching experience. I actually put on a robe and "sang" in the choir of their Episcopalean church. I'll try to avoid that next time around.

Played 36 holes on the hackiest course I've ever played. No fishing was done.

I'm feeling ill. I still came in to work today because I've always thought it bad form to call in sick the day you're suppoe to be back from "vacation". I was already told that if I need to leave I can. I guess my face looks ill as well.

Goin RV'in' this weekend.

(no, that isn't us in the pix but that's what the RV looks like)

Wednesday, April 11, 2001

Damn! I was sooo going to do this!
I forgot to mention that last Friday night I replaced my 10 gauge earrings with 6 gauge spacers. The plan is to wear 18 gauge rings through the spacers. I might have to go to a 4 gauge spacer to do this. Exciting, huh?

I added my own blog for golf. Thx Drew, for the inspiration.
Our mechanic has been doing some work on our RV for this weekend's run to TN. We're joining some friends to their parents house about 1 hour north of Alabama. Can you say deliverance? Looks like I'll be able to play a round of 18 and get some actual fly fishing in.

Speaking of golf... my brother Drew just put up a golf section on his blog. He's keeping a blog of courses he plays with par and his actual score with occasional digi-pix of the course. I can't wait to do that for myself sans the digi-pix :(

Other then that, I don't have too much time to add pix of any kind on here.

I had to uninstall MSIE 6.x (beta). Pop-Up windows were causing internal browser errors. You would think that something as basic as pop-ups would work. They could have just copied and pasted that part of the program from 5 into 6, couldn't they?

Great weekend of golf on TV. To anyone that would contest the Grand Slam... get real.

No new music. No new movies/DVD's. No new anything... yet. :)

PC Users: Is it time to switch to MSIE 6.x? Find out here.
Very busy day yesturday.

I was able to play a round of 18. It was great to be able to do that aftr a full days work. It only took 3 hours! I shot a 95. Because I know where I'm blowing up, if I can continue to play once a week, I'm confident that I'll be able to shave 3-5 strokes from my game by the end of May.

I've got to get some fly fishing in this year before I freak out!

More later...

Sade was on Letterman last night. She is so amazing.

If you use the "Discuss" feature, be aware that it no longer displays the number of comments. It's a drag I know but going there to see if anyone is leaving comments might help you leave one.

To all my critic's: BlogVoices, the utility that leaves those comments, isn't mine, I didn't write it so the fact that it doesn't display the number of comments isn't my fault. (sheesh)
Guess what I got in the mail yesturday... that's right: PAYMENT! The client sent the check like a good little client should.

Going golfing again on Thursday after work. Now that daylight savings time is here, the sun sets around 8pm right now!

The wife and kids are going to Sea World Thursday-Friday with the father-in-law. Unlike Cali where Sea World is a mere 3 hours from Metro L.A., here in Texass it seems like you have to drive across the whole state. But, Texass has been good for us financially so I shouldn't complain. The Ocean is only 8 hours away!

What else... DB's mum passed away in the last 24 hours...

We're going to pay to get the front yard manicured and totally spruced up. Then the kids can maintain it :) - we're also going to have one of our massive trees completely cut down. It's old and rotted.

If I don't stop now I'll start talking about the weather.

Are you on the 53.4% of golfers list? I thought everybody did this...
Great. Like we really need this to be happening.
Golf on Friday was excellent. The weather was perfect.
I was playing really good and looking at 90-92 till about the 14th hole and then I blew up, never to recover. I still made some really good shots that I've been re-playing in my mind. I'm not sure how I pulled them off.

That client I blogged about the other day... the check should be in my hand this week :)

Spent half of Saturday working on the front yard with T. We have a huge piece of land (.9 acres), at least it feels huge when you're out there trying to keep it looking nice. We were able to accomplish about 15% of what we need to do and that's just landscaping. It's a bit overwhelming. I know I promised pictures but I avoided the home office over the weekend.

So now Bartlesville, OK isn't just famous for being the home town of POD's manager. It was mentioned as being the home town of Meadow's psycho college dorm room-mate on the Sorprano's last night. Talk about an intense show. It lives up to it's MA rating.
