HappyUP!!! Day 4900


HappyUP!!! - The ONLY gross skin...and a net skin on Wed
Why it happened - who knows
Why it makes me happy -I had no idea a skins game was going on. I was just doing my thing. Then, I find out I was the big winner of the day! LOL.....I laughed when I overheard the pro telling this to the table next door to me. When I heard my name, my not-so-little ears perked right up

HappyUP!!! - 100 days to go
Why it happened -it's been a journey
Why it makes me happy - I said to myself as I got this going that 5000 days seemed like a good number for this project. It looks like we are on the home stretch good things coming to an end

HappyUP!!! - grilled hot dog
Why it happened - I mixed it up
Why it makes me happy - when I ordered it, my bro said, "have them bring one in from the Happy Shack on the course. Those dogs are better."  I got what he was saying. They put a good steam on them. I told him, "hang with me here, blah."  When that puppy came out, he said, "yep! I get it... that i one good looking dog!".......and it tasted even better

HappyUP!!! -neighbors digging my crazy licks
Why it happened - a guy was walking his dog
Why it makes me happy- I haven't even got started on porch playing yet. At least people aren't calling the cops.

HappyUP!!! Day 4899


HappyUP!!! - porch guitar
Why it happened -I got some chairs
Why it makes me happy - it's kind of nice in the morning to quietly serenade the neighborhood! LOL Nah, I keep it real quiet. It is nice....very Andy Griffithy like

HappyUP!!! - School is back!
Why it happened - they do it every year
Why it makes me happy - while I LOVE the sleepy aspect of my neighborhood, it's also kind of nice to have the 20 minutes of activity every day

HappyUP!!! - Lollipop Moments
Why it happened - I heard a Ted Talk
Why it makes me happy - this was more my style of leadership than formal trainings on striving to be a leader. I am sure I will be doing an entire block on "leadership....can't we have more indians?"...but I really dug how you don't always know when you are a leader.  I got that experience of being one last week when a person publically repeated a BUNCH of encouraging words....verbatim...that I had recited to him. Cool beans!

Leadership is about Lollipop moments...Everyday Leadership by Drew Dudley...people that lead that don't want to...or even know they are doing it. You may not even know the impact you have had upon someone's life. Have you told someone that gave you that important moment?

HappyUP!!! Day 4898


HappyUP!!! - 30 year wedding anniversary
Why it happened - I said "I do"
Why it makes me happy -....and it reminded me that I said, "I don't"!

HappyUP!!! - Financial block
Why it happened -it was suggested
Why it makes me happy - it wasn't really on the list...but it should have been. I got a little inspiration and noodled with this a bit. I will revisit. This could be a good one

HappyUP!!! - Doug  is back
Why it happened - he is healing
Why it makes me happy - great new lesson. It led to me discovering "Missing You" which is a really cool sounding tune and pretty easy to sing. Great combo. Plus, it is making getting to other chords a lot easier and makes them sound more interesting.

HappyUP!!! -birdie on 13
Why it happened - drive...iron...THAT PUTT
Why it makes me happy- don't birdie this hole a lot. It was a touch firm but that putt was planted firmly in the kisser!

HappyUP!!! Day 4897


HappyUP!!! - black shorts
Why it happened - I am such a dork
Why it makes me happy - I gotta keep this one personal for awhile. It's going to be one FUNNY story when I get done with it. God, I just LOVE me!

HappyUP!!! - a 9 hole visitor
Why it happened - he was feeling better
Why it makes me happy - after being laid up for surgery, my lil buddy came out and had a pretty darn impressive 9 holes. Great to see him on the mend!

HappyUP!!! - commitment
Why it happened - it needs to happen
Why it makes me happy - I have never taken on this kind of endeavor before....but...I said today, "I will do it!"  Too many stars had aligned for me to ignore this opportunity I had been waiting for. Oh my! What have I gotten myself into?

HappyUP!!! - Craig block
Why it happened - inspiration again
Why it makes me happy- I didn't even realize this was going to be one of my building blocks. It just came to me. What a great story! It also made me realize something about me that I never knew. This was just flat out awesome stuff!!!

HappyUP!!! Day 4896


HappyUP!!! - Fabulous walk
Why it happened -put the time aside
Why it makes me happy - been a few days since I just "hit it." Knee felt super. It was some awesome think time

HappyUP!!! - a couple of great podcasts
Why it happened -my walk mostly
Why it makes me happy - got some TREMENDOUS ideas that will help me with my project(s) and some places to reference

HappyUP!!! - The Pile transcribed
Why it happened - partly due to podcast inspiration
Why it makes me happy - yeah, I could have done other things. This one wasn't on the table. But...HEY...when inspiration strikes.....ya got to grab it. This one had been simmering for awhile and today it jumped up to boiling hot.

HappyUP!!! Day 4895

HappyUP!!! - the muscle as a gallery
Why it happened - he decided to come out
Why it makes me happy - glad he hung around and watched us slap it all day. Better for him to be out of the house and into the fresh air. ....oh....wait......smokey air.  Air aside, great having him out.

HappyUP!!! - Land of A7
Why it happened - been doing some research
Why it makes me happy - heard this lesson long ago but kind of forgot it. It ties in nicely with some of the other things that I am working on. It's time for me to lay out a lesson plan for the week ahead

HappyUP!!! - a largo birdie on 18
Why it happened - a ripped three wood and a perfect wedge
Why it makes me happy - first, it was good to get A BIRDIE today after missing two Largo putts on the front 9.  Second,  my partner and I were getting the beat down put on us all day. He REALLY stepped it up by throwing down that 34 on the back 9. I had a couple of ooopsies....but I picked up the greenies with SOLID iron shots on the back 9......and then capped it off and we snatched victory out of the jaws of defeat.  THAT is a triumphant feeling! Come on....if that doesn't make one happy, toss away the golf sticks!!!

HappyUP!!! - Giants win
Why it happened - great pitching
Why it makes me happy- Longoria's homer was timely too.  While the weekend split with the D-backs is better than losing the series, it is going to take miraculous play for the G-men to make the playoffs.  I don't see it in them but....hey....who knows!

JollyJottings

Great sleep
Land of A7 
A win......a birdie on 18.....largo on 1 and 4....great putts on 2/3 (that didn't go in)
Bunker shot on 8 (and another great putt that didn't go in)
Nice 6 iron on 12 and 5 iron on 17....been missing those greens

The Ol Nutter Almanac 2018





Days Predicted: 11-16
Days to Date:  26

The DAYS  (as reported by Weather.com for Roseville, CA 95678)

1) 6/3 - 101            2) 6/13 - 101     3) 6/22 - 101      4) 6/23 - 101   5) 6/30 - 103  
6) 7/1 -102       7) 7/9 - 102     8) 7/10 - 100   9)  7/11  - 101  10) 7/12 - 101  
11) 7/14 - 101  12) 7/15 - 100  13) 7/16 - 102  14) 7/17 - 104  15) 7/18 - 105
16)  7/19 - 104   17) 7/23 -102   18) 7/24 - 104   19)  7/25 -107 20) 7/26 - 105
21) 7/27 - 100  22) 7/28 - 103  23) 7/31 - 100  24) 8/9 - 102 25) 8/10 - 102  26) 8/11 - 102

Update 8/12 - as far as I am concerned, we might as well just GO FOR IT and try to put this year waaaaay into the 30 days of 100 plus.  With the third year of 30 or more lurking, I wonder how many people are ACTING on second homes elsewhere.  I'm starting to look at alternatives!

Update 8/5 - hard to call anything related to all these fires as FORTUNATE but, believe it or not, the smoke cover has appeared on several days to have kept our temperatures down. Weather forecasts, which are pretty solid in summer, were changed last week at the last minute.

July 29, for example, was supposed to be over 100....and that would have fit with the pattern of the week leading up to it (take a glance 7/23-7/27).  The high ended up being only 92.

Four days are decked up this week to get to triple digits. We shall see what we shall see....and...with all the smoke right now....that ain't much.

Update 7/26 - it is OFFICIAL.  We live in a TOILET!!! July has just slaughtered the Almanac....again this year. We are staring at a minimum number of 100+ days of 17 for the month!  Oh....what?...what did you say?....."Nutster, your attitude kind of stinks!"   ONE - thanks for noticing...you're so kind  TWO - YOU come live in it  THREE - you are right...."we are the champions....we are the champions....." because we are so doggone heat tolerant! You know, as much as this heat sucks, it is waaaaaaaay worse in the humid places......and none of our weather has the ability to kill us.

(WOW!!! Did you see what just happened above? That was kind of like therapy.  I went from "toilet" to "being very fortunate" in just a couple of lines!  Never underestimate the power of HappyingUP!!!)

Update 7/16 - WE ARE TOAST!!! In a couple of ways.  First, we are burning it up here in the valley. Second, the Almanac will again be WOEFULLY wrong. Perhaps there is something to the fact we are in the midst of some climate changes.  This thing used to have a degree of accuracy.  The last few years?.....not so much.  We are in the midst of the worst of it too.  I see another BURNER in front of us today (105?....really? ...is predicted....hottest day so far).  We may get a slight back off but I am POSITIVE July has more fun in store for us. It's only our hottest month of the year....and....yeah... August often likes to kick in a little "heat fun" as well.  We have hit 30 days at 100 degrees or more the last two years.  June wasn't too bad but, if August overachieves again, we will be right back there.


Update 7/1 - June CAN be a lot worse than that. Hello, July! You came in as expected. Nothing smoking on the horizon, though.  4th of July is looking awesome as is the rest of the week. We take the cool when we can get it.

Update 6/17 - June is doing it's  thing.  We have a couple hundies down....and looks like three to four coming by this time next week.  Eeeks.....perhaps Summer will do some early spitting and spare us in July.  Summers may be permanently changing in the valley.

You know the drill - we look at the Memorial Day Weekend weather as our guide

As usual - we will use the reporting by Weather.com as our verification tool.

This year - I am going to have to do some adjusting for "climate change."  The Almanac has missed the mark for 3 years in a row.

We had some cool weather - even a touch of rain on Friday right before the weekend.  Saturday and Sunday were nice and mild.  This was looking like a "10 days or less" call.....the riskiest one that can be made for this valley.....

......but....- AHA!!!!  Monday brought a little reminder that Summer is coming by almost cracking the  century mark!

For that reason - we will be looking at 11-15 days at 100 degrees or more this year.

HappyUP!!! Day 4894

HappyUP!!! - Key to the Highway
Why it happened - I was looking at something else
Why it makes me happy - OK...so I want to start being able to finger pick better. While getting a little instruction on that, I came across a quick little lesson on doing one of my favorite blues songs.  The great thing is that I already know how to do a lot of the stuff.....I just didn't know it all went into this song and into the key the instructor was using.  No doubt this one is going to be staying in the bag of tricks once I put an arrangement on it

HappyUP!!! - Facebook was down yesterday
Why it happened - I dunno
Why it makes me happy - I had to be told by the news that it happened. It's testimony to the fact that I don't participate in a daily practice of needing to know 1) who just got engaged 2) where someone is on vacation 3) what someone made/was served for dinner last night.  FB has a lot more down to it than upside in my book.  

HappyUP!!! - Atkins picking
Why it happened - I got a lesson delivered
Why it makes me happy - when the student is ready, the teacher will appear. The timing on this is amazing. Now, could it be that I have been doing some searching and this "miraculously showed up" due to algorhythms being run in the background? It's possible. In this case, I think it was more synchronicity/serendipity....two words that I dig! Great lesson

HappyUP!!! Day 4893

HappyUP!!! - knocking the pin down on 11
Why it happened -a well struck 5 iron
Why it makes me happy - it's what you are supposed to do. After all, it may have been 180 yards away....but it was where I was aiming. Sure, it could have gone in. It also could have gone way past the hole. Nice tap in birdie.

HappyUP!!! - seeing the Muscle
Why it happened - we had some business to do
Why it makes me happy - hadn't seen the kid in over a week. Great to spend some time with him as he recuperates

HappyUP!!! - some Wichita progress
Why it happened - I'm noodling
Why it makes me happy - this song could end up being really smooth. It's not anywhere near that yet but I am learning some nuance to make it MY way of doing it. 

HappyUP!!! -

HappyUP!!! Day 4892

HappyUP!!! - Wichita Lineman find
Why it happened -I'm in Glen Campbell mode
Why it makes me happy - this song has come up over and over in my lifetime. I have always really dug it. Mostly, it's Campbell's voice (that I got none of) that makes the song. Well...that and the fact that Jimmy Webb wrote a FANTASTIC tune.  Anyway, I am going to work on this one and add this to the arsenal. 

HappyUP!!! - noodling on the porch
Why it happened - I have chairs
Why it makes me happy - see above. It was a nice morning. Front porch noodling is different than inside noodling. Don't ask me why. It's not about entertaining the neighbors.  I actually play WAY softer outside...the neighbors don't need to hear my train wrecks. It's just kind of peaceful at certain times. Plus...if it's nice....it's outside.  Every porch should have a geeetar on it. 

HappyUP!!! - Giants over D-Backs
Why it happened - they did some hitting
Why it makes me happy - OK...this is a big series. 4 games. They really need to gain some ground. If they don't come out of this with some momentum, they may well be done for the year. Time is running out.


Wednesday, August 01, 2018

HappyUP!!! Day 4891

HappyUP!!! - GM time
Why it happened - we got booked together
Why it makes me happy -got some great "idea bouncing" time with my SME

HappyUP!!! - Ghost Riders In The Sky
Why it happened - my friend texted me
Why it makes me happy - not sure if it is a song that I want to learn but it was fun tabbing out what my ear was hearing on some cool little single note stuff. I don't do enough of this single note noodling...it's good for the ear and the dexterity

HappyUP!!! - birdie on 1
Why it happened - I played it right
Why it makes me happy - I played this hole terribly in July. Nice to be off on the right start with a new strategy

HappyUP!!! Day 4890

HappyUP!!! - the three speeches
Why it happened - did some rearranging
Why it makes me happy - this was a great thing! D killed it with the icebreaker. R gave the best speech he has given. L did a super job on a timely topic from a first hand perspective (the fires). Just awesome stuff today

HappyUP!!! - tossing a 33 down on the back 9
Why it happened - just really good play there
Why it makes me happy -the 39 on the front was a little ho hum. Largo birdie on 10...some nice, solid play that gave me pars through 15....and then the wake up call. Another largo birdie on 16...now 2 under with two to go. THAT gets my attention. A sandie save on 17 and another LARGO birdie on 18 and it's 33. I'm not sure but I think that ties with my best 9 holes at my home course since I joined. Four LARGO birdies....no lucky stuff or long putts. Sweeet day....and a big win.

HappyUP!!! - Home Depot run
Why it happened - just said "screw it and do it"
Why it makes me happy - it's easy to stay inside when we are hitting 100 degrees...but I said, "lets get some things done before golf and after Toastmasters." What do you know....I get some needed home equipment and a clean truck!

HappyUP!!! - the group
Why it happened -it was a Sunday thing and TC dropped
Why it makes me happy - my bro...DD...ML....and Goodie. It is hard to get better than that

HappyUP!!! - TraderJoes

HappyUP!!! - Portia

HappyUP!!! - quick warmup

HappyUP!!! - short game
Why it happened -I needed it
Why it makes me happy - those lies at Poppy Hills were tight! Those sand traps were plentiful. When you are hitting it like a dog, you find all of those around the greens. Glad I had some skills to keep things where they were

HappyUP!!! - NCGA Officials
Why it happened - we were at Zone Qualifying
Why it makes me happy - we got a little "bump" from one official....and justified. Another one gave me a poison oak warning...and I am glad he did. 3 holes later my ball was sitting in it and I would not have known.  Rain pants got tossed on over the shorts and a REAL disaster was averted!!

HappyUP!!! - the last hole
Why it happened - eventually you get there
Why it makes me happy - tough day out there today.....but....played the last hole about as well as you could. There was no layup in this kid!...and I got rewarded. Momentum for tomorrow!!!

HappyUP!!! - setting the club
Why it happened -I was paying attention
Why it makes me happy - ball striking had fallen off from last month. I went to some notes. It was time to nip this in the bud. It made my turn better and led to me "munching" some iron shots...something that had been missing

HappyUP!!! - The Open
Why it happened -it's an annual thing
Why it makes me happy -the Tiger is right there! This is the greatest thing for the game of golf. He is only the sports figure that creates the most attention worldwide
