The Ol Nutter Almanac 2018





Days Predicted: 11-16
Days to Date:  2

The DAYS

1) 6/3 - 101            2) 6/13 - 101    

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 Sunday, June 17 Happy Father's Day



HappyUP!!! - Father's Day Golf
Why it happened - I got up early
Why it makes me happy - played with two dad's and their sons today. What a joy it is for them to be able to do that...these are grown sons. It's quite an accomplishment on everyone's end

HappyUP!!! - chip in 17
Why it happened - I nipped that one
Why it makes me happy - I couldn't see the cup....just the pin....pitched it up the hill nicely....went, "that should be OK...gives me a chance for par."  Well, nobody else was up at the green at the time either......so they all got a nice "surprise" (as did I) when I fished it out of the cup for birdie....such fun!

HappyUP!!! - Father's Day Dinner
Why it happened - I was invited
Why it makes me happy - great food and family....nice and chill.....close by....ahhhhhh....life is very good!!!

HappyUP!!! Saturday, June 16


HappyUP!!! - a sizzling round of golf
Why it happened - some playing going on
Why it makes me happy - nope...wasn't talking about the weather.  The temperature was fabulous. Threw down my best round in well over a year today.....after being 2 over after 4 holes....1 under the rest of the trip.  Only one birdie.  If you are keeping track, it means I went 14 holes without a screw up that I couldn't immediately fix!

HappyUP!!! - 6 iron on 17
Why it happened - striking it pretty well
Why it makes me happy - this was the big one......to acquire/lock down the "grand salami."  It's always nice to deliver when it matters

HappyUP!!! - a new little lick
Why it happened - I was noodling
Why it makes me happy -....been working on a neat little guitar passage....creating it...and found a nice little pathway on the fretboard tonight.  It's a "ooooh! There it is!!!" moment...nice!

Friday, June 15, 2018

HappyUP!!! Friday, June 15


HappyUP!!! - the new parking structure is open
Why it happened - it took awhile
Why it makes me happy - downtown really needed this addition....well...maybe not to the extent that this one was built.....7 levels!!!  But...I don't have a problem with a bit of overkill.  Once you are building a few levels, why not a few more.  I just know where I can park now downtown!!!

HappyUP!!! - Early Golf
Why it happened - nephew needed to
Why it makes me happy - great guys....perfect weather.....greens are sooooo smooth in the morning....done early enough to do other stuff....

HappyUP!!! - ....like cruising the neighborhood with a friend
Why it happened - lunch wrapped early
Why it makes me happy - I was being tour guide and I noticed things that I never had noticed before on some neighboring streets.  I also was strangely even MORE appreciative of my little part of the world.  It really is a nice, charming, and darling little enclave.  I done good settling here

Thursday, June 14, 2018

HappyUP!!! Day Thursday, June 14


HappyUP!!! - paperwork
Why it happened - it happens
Why it makes me happy - all deadlines met with room to spare.  No stress for me

HappyUP!!! - looks like a road trip
Why it happened - had Boxy checked pre-smog
Why it makes me happy - it's good to know...saved me a trip to the cramped little place for them to tell me the engine hadn't cycled through since my battery went out.  It only means one thing....put some miles on!!!......and, of course, with the top down! What? Do I hear Tahoe calling!

HappyUP!!! - M in the park....Baby Shark
Why it happened - he was visiting
Why it makes me happy - he had a ton of fun climbing into Boxy today.  That little kid is a crack up.... the Baby Shark song had me in stitches in the most joyful of ways!

Wednesday, June 13, 2018

HappyUP!!! Day Wednesday, June 13


HappyUP!!! - incredible par on 17
Why it happened - Floppy McFloppy
Why it makes me happy -tees are back...pin is back...got to hit the 5 iron rather than the 6. I tattoo this baby....just a little left of the stick. My playing partner says, "you must have hit that great...I barely heard any contact," and he was right. Unfortunately, it isn't what you want when you have taken a bit extra club.  I had to have ended up darn near 50 yards over the green (told ya I tattooed it). It was an impossible situation...for some.  I opened up that 60 degree wedge and shot that ball right at the hole....no green to work with...almost flew it in....and then canned the 15 footer coming back! THAT is some good stuff!

HappyUP!!! - knocking stuff out
Why it happened -I was up a little early
Why it makes me happy -who do you know that has washed their car....and gone to the bank....on top of writing out 3 pages of script................all before their 6:30 coffee appointment? Who? THIS GUY!!!....and it just felt great!!!

HappyUP!!! - coffee time
Why it happened - we do that
Why it makes me happy - ANOTHER banner day of conversation.  How many convos have you had lately where the word, "pedantic", comes up?  It's usually an interesting chat when that happens

HappyUP!!! - great calls with G and L
Why it happened - I reached out
Why it makes me happy- G is going to give me a hand on a little thing I really want done....but don't want to do....and it's right up his alley. He's actully looking forward to it!  It would be a stretch for me to have that same attitude toward this project....this is going to work out great!!!

HappyUP!!! Day Tuesday, June 12


HappyUP!!! - drop and go
Why it happened - I'm responsible
Why it makes me happy - didn't think I should be around the gang today.....but I had the key to the door. Nice to do a little drive and "drop and go" knowing the meeting was in good hands.  I also liked myself for "soldiering up" and fulfilling my obligation

HappyUP!!! - cancelling doc appointment
Why it happened - I am feeling better
Why it makes me happy - I am feeling better! I just said it in the previous line, for goodness sakes.  No further explanation needed.

HappyUP!!! - cool little guitar run
Why it happened - I was YouTubin
Why it makes me happy - loved the way this dude connected more of the fretboard. He gave some mindless little drills to run through. Easy in concept but difficult to do fast.....I gots to pick up some of that shred speed

Monday, June 11, 2018

HappyUP!!! Day Monday, June 11


HappyUP!!! - doctor call
Why it happened - got HIT
Why it makes me happy - man, I woke up....did some stuff...then went DOWN. If I hadn't already had appendicitis, I would swear that was what it was. Very happy I got to talk to a doc on the phone who said it didn't sound like an emergency room visit.  He also said, "this is strange. I have received several calls TODAY with people describing what you are describing."

HappyUP!!! - doctor made appointment
Why it happened - the phone doc did it
Why it makes me happy - I couldn't get to my doc....or any doc...for days on the system. Glad the phone doc had an override to get me to a different doc tomorrow should I feel the need

HappyUP!!! - Netflix
Why it happened - it's a service
Why it makes me happy - when you are sick and DOWN...Netflix is a lifesaver! Period!!!

HappyUP!!! - anti-diahera med
Why it happened -uhhhh...you know why
Why it makes me happy- I like to let things "run their course." I think it is important. Whatever bad that is in there wants to....NEEDS to....get out.  Far be it from me to "close that door."  But...after 5 hours....it was time for night time sleep.  So thankful for those little pills of "valve closers" tonight.

HappyUP!!! Day June 10, 2018


HappyUP!!! - big win
Why it happened - my partner's front 9
Why it makes me happy -I joined at last minute on a whim....so glad I did. This guy was on fire!

HappyUP!!! - big win
Why it happened - my play on the back 9
Why it makes me happy - I actually got "into the zone" on the back.  2 under going into 17...relied a bit too much on adrenalin and came up a bit short for bogey on 17. Still, slapped it around in 35 which is a bit of a milestone. I think it may be the first under par 9 this year

HappyUP!!! - morning guitar jam
Why it happened - I do that
Why it makes me happy -due to the Acorn, I hadn't touched the ax for a couple of days. It was a nice morning of noodling


Saturday, June 09, 2018

HappyUP!!! Day June 9, 2018




HappyUP!!! - Calcutta money
Why it happened - we closed HARD
Why it makes me happy - two best balls....only one over par combined...THAT is something that is difficult to accomplish.  We got a nice little financial reward for the effort

HappyUP!!! - birdie birdie
Why it happened - shots and putts
Why it makes me happy - 17 and 18 weren't our closing holes today.....but they are still nice to birdie to get the round a little kickstart

HappyUP!!! - dinner 
Why it happened - the tournament concludes
Why it makes me happy - my partner came back for dinner this year which was great. My friend stopped by and joined us as well.  We were awarded a nice overall prize....even picked up a raffle prize of dinner at McCormick and Schmicks (gotta love that).

HappyUP!!! - one more day of uniforms
Why it happened -I made a late night trip last evening
Why it makes me happy- hey...we already matched the first two days......had to finish it out properly....and it was a nice shirt!!!

HappyUP!!! Day June 8, 2018

Friday


HappyUP!!! - the ice cream cookie sandwich
Why it happened - they brought them out 
Why it makes me happy - OMG!...THIS was delicious. Two chocolate chip cookies with a scoop of vanilla ice cream between them? Are you kidding me? I don't usually do dessert but, in my current status, I am full on. This was a winner!!!

HappyUP!!! - hey, we are still in it
Why it happened - we are learning?
Why it makes me happy - our handicaps are as low as ever for this tournament. By now, we are usually sucking!...I mean...in the back of the bus. One team clearly has this won, but, with a good round tomorrow, we could actually do OK

HappyUP!!! - 4'1" on number 5
Why it happened -I piped that baby
Why it makes me happy - it led to a birdie...but....more importantly, it qualifies me for a chance to take one putt for $10,000 tomorrow.  All I have to do is beat out the 3 other guys in a playoff. How exciting would that be?

Great shirts
Birdie on 17

HappyUP!!! Day June 7, 2018

It's that time again - THE ACORN!!!

Our annual tournament - the greenskeeper and the staff put there best foot forward. We shine up the experience...invite guests from all over the place...and have some friendly competition for a few days.


HappyUP!!! - starting off with a natural birdie....and then pushing it
Why it happened - I dunno....it's not our usual style
Why it makes me happy - hey, we would eventually stumble.....and then come back...hard...only to do a total face plant on the final hole....but....we showed some promise

HappyUP!!! - seeing all the guys
Why it happened - it's the Acorn
Why it makes me happy - many guys bring in the same guests...from far and wide...for this friendly competition. Always cool to see

HappyUP!!! -labels off the towel
Why it happened - I had an AHA
Why it makes me happy - so...that pesky label kept hanging down below the fold of my towel. I said, "I don't need that label!" (I know....big duuuhhhhh). BUT, here was the big deal.....I no longer knew what the front or the back of the towel was (I did that thorough a job of cutting the label)...and, then, I went, "THERE IS NO FRONT OR BACK TO A TOWEL."  Just fold it on either side. It all works!

HappyUP!!! Day June 6, 2018


HappyUP!!! - sand play
Why it happened - practice and skills
Why it makes me happy - long ago, I was a pretty decent bunker player. These days? Not so much. Could one reason be that I don't work at it? Hmmmmmm....let's think about that...LOL.  Anyway, I did work at it the other day.......came up with a little "sumpin sumpin" and...VOILA!!!... I holed out a short sided bunker shot on 5 and left another one hanging on the front edge of the cup on 14. In my history of playing golf, I have NEVER (<----and about="" bunker="" change="" eeling="" good="" had="" heck.....one="" i="" in="" is="" it="" little="" month="" nbsp="" one="" only="" p="" round="" shots="" that="" this="" true="" two="" use="" when="" word="" year="">
HappyUP!!! - a reach out
Why it happened - the big E was looking for a game
Why it makes me happy - the big tournament starts tomorrow. It's kind of a special day. It was great that a friend of mine looked me up to see if I wanted to be paired with him and his partner tomorrow. THAT is quite an honor and, due to this guy being who he is, I gladly accepted.  Hey, believe it or not, there are people...people close to me....that I wouldn't want to be paired with in this gig! 

HappyUP!!! - a reach out
Why it happened - old acquaintance might be searching
Why it makes me happy - WHAT? I'm being asked out so I may be able to shed light/give guidance / dispense wisdom?  Yeah.....it happens!  It is a sacred privilege when it does. The nice thing....I don't usually have to share much.  I just put on my listening ears....ask a couple of questions....and usually just guide the person on their own path....a path they already have...and one they just needed a navigator to steer them back on their own course.  It's a wonderful experience.

HappyUP!!! - coffee klatch
Why it happened - been doing it for 18 years
Why it makes me happy - .....due to that pesky thing called LIFE, we had missed our weekly gig for over a month. I'm not sure that has ever happened.  It made for some great catch up though! Good to hear about the progress of the kids.....and....hearing of how a father has served his time regarding a certain duty to his sons.  Well done!

HappyUP!!! -iCloud progress
Why it happened - a bit of extra perseverence
Why it makes me happy- Apple can make things very easy......except when they don't! Like when they have about 3 or more different passwords for different paths that kind of seem like the same path. Did that make sense? Yeah...it did....to me! Anyway, I think I am well on my way to being properly backed up.

HappyUP!!! Day June 5, 2018

Pretty much - a Chamber of Commerce BANNER DAY in the Nutster World!

HappyUP!!! - renewal check
Why it happened - a member came back
Why it makes me happy -LOVE this member. Sooooo thrilled that she is back and paid current

HappyUP!!! - 3 speeches
Why it happened - they were motivated
Why it makes me happy - J talked about D.A.M.M. (an interesting perspective on cell phone use)... B talked about the "A or N Factor" which was great....and, our ranking veteran, P gave us a very interesting perspective about freedom.  Great stuff!!!

HappyUP!!! - the Shark
Why it happened - old vacuum went out
Why it makes me happy - I won't go into too much detail.  The bloom is still on the rose.  I can only say that one of my dreads in life is buying the wrong thing...the wrong tool for the job...especially on spendier purchases.  I think I NAILED it on this thing.  The versatility and ease of use was amazing on it's maiden voyage!

HappyUP!!! -KC and the Sunshine Band
Why it happened - I brought my speaker
Why it makes me happy- I took my speaker to Toastmasters for a funny reason.....but then ended up greeting people with my 5 song KC and the Sunshine Band jam.  Look...you don't have to be a FAN of the Sunshiners.....but....if you don't get yourself into a better...a more funkalicious mood upon hearing them, I don't know what to tell ya!  They almost are dripping on you to "dude, let your groove thing out! It wants out!"  I had to dial myself back a bit....a lot of parts of the world just can't handle it when I go into my Funkanomic mode! I tell ya what....I sure didn't hold back for most of the day after that!

HappyUP!!! Day June 4, 2018

HappyUP!!! - The Pest Guy
Why it happened -he stops by
Why it makes me happy - he told me I did a good job on my "pest project"....even though I did it and not him.  Hey...it cost me $30 and two hours of time....NOT what the pest company was going to charge me (he's a nice guy...even he knew what they were going to make him charge was ridiculous. He didn't say that...I could just tell).  Anyway, I like this dude...I don't always get to see him when he stops by.

HappyUP!!! - Hootie tune
Why it happened - I saw him on TV
Why it makes me happy - I caught a DVR'd episode of Fallon from a week or so back. They did a parody of "Only Wanna Be With You" devoted to the military and Memorial Day.  I did a quick look up on the internet.....voila.....a few minutes later, I'm playing the tune. Amazing how simple it is....cool little strum pattern.....you all know the song.  I GUARANTEE you...as many times as you have heard the lyrics....you don't know them at all! LOL...I found that funny. A song I "knew" so well but didn't really know at all.

HappyUP!!! -starting the day on extremely high MoJo
Why it happened -who knows
Why it makes me happy - I was particularly upbeat today....yeah....more than usual...even for me.  No particular reason....not doing anything special or fun....quite the opposite as I was doing some drudgery items.  I'll take it though!!!

Sunday, June 03, 2018

HappyUP!!! Day June 3, 2018

HappyUP!!! - 2 birdies
Why it happened - good shooting...and a couple of nice putts
Why it makes me happy - birdies are where it is at.....and I have been a little "fowl famished" as of late.  It seems like the opportunity is to get 2-4 a round.  Perhaps, "birdie mode" is getting ready to kick in! It would be a very TIMELY occurrence....Acorn on the way

HappyUP!!! - Warriors
Why it happened - it's the finals
Why it makes me happy - are you kidding me? It is just magic watching these guys toy with the Cavs.  It almost seems like a cat just batting the mouse around....except that is one big LeBron mouse that almost bit them the other night.  Still, they just showed excellence tonight...fun to watch. 

HappyUP!!! - 3 days in a row...keeping it under the 80 mark
Why it happened -a comeback
Why it makes me happy - the front nine got WAAAAY out of hand....but....I managed to play the back in one over and just duck it under the magic mark.  I know EXACTLY what needs a bit of work...and where some awesome progress (the sand) was made today.  It will be duly noted.

HappyUP!!! -great group/heat beat
Why it happened - looked at the forecast
Why it makes me happy- 7:20 on a pre-summer season day...with summer weather coming in the afternoon.  Great guys to play with.....I was given a free hat....lfie is good!

Why it happened -see above

HappyUP!!! - two days keeping it under 80
Why it happened -parred the last two holes
Why it makes me happy - cruised through the tougher front in 39...time to "make some hay" on the back....whooooopsie!!!

A nice finish....and....like yesterday....keeping it in the zipcode as I approach next week's tournament

HappyUP!!! - a gift
Why it happened -my partner is the best
Why it makes me happy - I merely commented, "what's that?" because it was so shiny! Then, my partner said, "here, you can have it. It's my last one to give away."  Wow....I now have FBI material in my pocket every time I golf.  THAT has to be worth something

HappyUP!!! -keeping it under 80
Why it happened - parred 18
Why it makes me happy - I BARELY did it today....but I did it.  Things are about to go a bit lower....just need some different parts of the game to gel at the correct moment.  Just nice to be in the zip code

HappyUP!!! - great group
Why it happened - the Captain scheduled us
Why it makes me happy - one of the 5 of us played well...the rest of us OK....nobody hacked and we moved that ball along. LOVED that sandy par I made on 18....saved a little money...good to finish on a high note
