Why it makes me happy - walking is the first step toward running a bit. We shall see what the body says about that. I had it going a few years back...6 miles with no issues.

HappyUP!!! - birdies
Why it happened -skillz
Why it makes me happy - the first birdie was right on top of my opponents as he was singing "zippity doo dah....."...so, as soon as mine went in, I burst into the Disney classic myself! LOL.  The bladey chip in on the very next hole was just icing on top!

HappyUP!!! - business chat
Why it happened - I do that
Why it makes me happy - interesting to find out the structure of the deal.

HappyUP!!! - 8 good to great rounds in a row
Why it happened - I found a little something
Why it makes me happy -I have been to this rodeo before. The streak won't last forever. Yet, 8 in a row is a pretty nice run. Most of those rounds actually could have been better...the course took more than it gave. This is so far from where I was a week and a half ago.

Why it happened - I was early for my tee time

Why it happened -I lost my old one

HappyUP!!! Day 4927

HappyUP!!! -a fill in
Why it happened -someone else wanted to play
Why it makes me happy -ecstatic to give up my spot. The elbow could use some rest...and who really wants to be out in the wind?

HappyUP!!! - leftovers
Why it happened -meal kit
Why it makes me happy -it is awesome to get dinner over by 11 in the morning. It's an easy way to intermittently fast. It's like dieting with dieting

HappyUP!!! -a brisk walk
Why it happened -needed something at the store
Why it makes me happy -why drive when you have the time to walk? It was a GORGEOUS afternoon to take in

HappyUP!!! -Steve Miller

HappyUP!!! Day 4926

HappyUP!!! -Steak Au Poivre

Why it makes me happy -I might as well enjoy it as my handicap drops precipitously! Another day with no "hack shots."

HappyUP!!! -two birdies
Why it happened - skillz

Tuesday, October 08, 2019

HappyUP!!! Day 4925

HappyUP!!! -bladey chip on 4
Why it happened -I work on it
Why it makes me happy -people think it's a tricky shot. Once you work on it a little, it's really pretty simple. When you hole it out for birdie, you get some street cred ..... and a birdie!!!!

HappyUP!!! -a guest
Why it happened -we attract them
Why it makes me happy -she played along with us....seemed to like our energy...we are convenient to her work and schedule. I think we get a new member!

Why it makes me happy -he gave us all a piece of perspective....that every one of us sorely needs...not just in our club...but everyone

HappyUP!!! - another solid round
Why it happened - found my flaw in mechanics
Why it makes me happy -I went through a bit of golf "hell" over the summer. 5 straight good rounds and my handicap is on it's way to where it really should be. Yeah, it's harder to make the $$$ with the lower handicap....but losing a few bucks is not nearly as painful as being lost on the course!

Monday, October 07, 2019

HappyUP!!! Day 4924

HappyUP!!! - steak
Why it happened -I was hungry
Why it makes me happy -I don't eat a lot of red meat. No, it's not because of health concerns. I love a good steak. I just know it isn't something that I should eat often. Tonight's was awesome!

HappyUP!!! - guitar
Why it happened -I do that
Why it makes me happy - made my fingers a little sore. Picked up a new tune...and the beginning of a wicked little lick....OK...."wicked" for me!

HappyUP!!! - TM calls
Why it happened -I am a reference
Why it makes me happy -glad to help out a confused member!

Sunday, October 06, 2019

HappyUP!!! Day 4923

HappyUP!!! - another solid round
Why it happened - re-learned a fundamental
Why it makes me happy - after a loooooooong slump, it's nice to put 4 straight tidy rounds together. It's been a bit humbling actually. Who knows? Will I return to my slumping ways nest time I am out there? Perhaps. It's golf. A maddening game. Yet, having been down this road a few times, I think I will get a bit more mileage out of this run. It is kind of funny. While not the EXACT fundamental that took me to the next level about a year ago, it's pretty close. How did I forget this one? It's golf. Golf does imitate life.

HappyUP!!! -just the most spectacular weather imaginable
Why it happened -its the NorCal fall
Why it makes me happy - I will be repeating this one A LOT in the weeks to come. I will. I just LOVE the fall here. Today, it really was stunning. I shall calendar a day to hit the road soon to go to the mountains before it gets too cold...and when all the leaves have turned.

HappyUP!!! - a soul biography
Why it happened -I keep tabs on a guy
Why it makes me happy -he turned the camera on himself. He dispelled his years of wisdom from behind the camera interviewing people. Tremendously compelling!

HappyUP!!! - making some reacquaintenance
Why it happened - a friend or two were on my mind
Why it makes me happy - just being human....and be willing to go into those awkward "sticky" places. It really is where I am at my best.

The Ol Nutter Almanac 2019



Days Predicted:  10
Days to Date:    23

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

1) 6/10 - 101  2) 6/11 - 103  3) 6/12 - 103 4) 6/18 - 104  5) 6/19 - 100 6) 7/12- 100
7) 7/13 - 102. 8) 7/22 - 101  9) 7/23 -101 10) 7/24 - 102 11) 7/25 - 103  12) 7/26 - 100
13) 7/27 - 103  14) 7/28 - 106  15) 8/3 - 100 16) 8/4 -100 17) 8/14 - 103  18) 8/15 - 105 19) 8/23 - 100  20) 8/24 - 100  21) 8/25 - 102  22) 8/26 - 102  23) 8/27 - 102

FINAL UPDATE -
 well, we knew it was a long shot any time you predict 10 days or less. Historically, 23 is still a lot of days. It was less than the last three years by a bunch! Yet, it was dramatically higher than the 7 years that proceeded those.  The last three were the hottest on record!
Our last 4 summers have been dramatically warmer.  June, July, and August had average highs that were 4, 2, and 3 degrees respectively higher than the traditional average for those months.


UPDATE 8/23 - well.....more of a pounding over the last 2.5 weeks...but not as bad as it sometimes is. We have a few more century days looking out the windshield. This is going to be and interesting yea to "deck up" against the last few when it is all done. We had that one stretch of 7 days in a row starting July 22....till then, July, the hottest month usually, had been fairly tame. It went SCREAMING out this year!!!

UPDATE 8/4 -the almanac took on a little heat since the last update. Hate those 100 degree days...I mean...yeah, you have to draw the line SOMEWHERE....but....just one degree less and we would only be at 11 days.

UPDATE 7/24 -  it's been a nice July run. The century mark only hit a couple of times. The official number isn't in for today but we got triple digits....and 4 more on the way. Yep, all 10 days will be used up before the end of July...and then some.  Could we go August without 100? Unlikely. The prediction was bold at the beginning of the year. It could be, with global warming, the traditional guidelines for the Almanac don't apply.


UPDATE 7/11 - it has been awesome to NOT update this thing! We MAY run into the century mark in the next week....but it would be just barely. I can live with that.

UPDATE 6/23 - well...how can the Almanac have a chance? We burned through half the 100 degree days before summer officially started.  July...August...the hot months ahead. LOOKS like a loser...BUT...let's allow it to play out. We don't have anything close to 100 predicted for the next week as we enter the hottest time of year.

UPDATE 6/10 - another week gone by dodging some bullets. This will likely come to an end in the coming week....like when the numbers come in on TODAY and TOMORROW.
UPDATE 6/2 - one week in...nothing close to 100. Though it will get warmer at the end of the coming week, no triple digits on the horizon. "Cool summer...cool summer...cool summer" is my mantra

Here we go again - the last four years of RECORD breaking heat? The Almanac just couldn't predict something like that! Nobody could.

So, on the heels of that - how can the Almanac even THINK about making the prediction it is about to make this year?

Call it crazy - it is going to be an EXTREMELY pleasant summer in our area. Yep, the Almanac just said that despite recent history. It's what the Almanac does. It is all based pseudoscientifically.

This summer - there will be 10 days or LESS (emphasis on the less) of 100 degree days


2019 Ol Nutter Almanac.   10 days or less.....23 Actual
2018 Ol Nutter Almanac   11-16 predicted.....29 actual

HappyUP!!! -winning ugly
Why it happened -made 4 double bogeys
Why it makes me happy -in our game, you can play crappy and still get a win. The requirements? There can be several. One is, if you have to make doubles, you make them at the right time.

HappyUP!!! - golf fill in
Why it happened -there was a no show
Why it makes me happy -put myself in best mental frame I could without any warm up....but...was just a disaster....DISASTER on the front 9. Something clicked on the 7th hole...it failed to save my 9. But, on the back, there was a mysterious confidence that came upon me. I hit 8 or the 9 greens (never do that) and shot even par...which is the WORST it could have been. 13 shots different from one side of the course to the other.

HappyUP!!! - family time
Why it happened -I got a call

Why it makes me happy -I can't tell you how many times I bogey this easy hole....TOO MANY. It's great to birdie it on occasion. I think some mental work needs to be done around this hole

Friday, July 26, 2019

HappyUP!!! - Phil's tunes
Why it happened -technology
Why it makes me happy -that is some CLASSIC Phil!!! Perked me up

Why it happened -I got calls
Why it makes me happy -my chat with Dom was epic. One of the best chats I have ever had with the double N.  These were both educational and enriching...and why we live

HappyUP!!! -Better Man
Why it happened -it floated into my email
Why it makes me happy -man...I gotta work on focus sometimes....YET...while not a big Pearl Jam fan...the composition of this tune (which is not in my genre or age range) has some magic. Nope...not nailed...yet...but...it was worth the distraction today. Fun texts with my buddies.

HappyUP!!! - grocery run in the heat

Why it happened -gave things thought
Why it makes me happy -all of the stuff was important...some "on the edge"...glad to push the agenda forward

HappyUP!!! - a new kitty
Why it happened -got a video
Why it makes me happy -not saying I am doing it...but...it would be a good idea to get Q-ball an "age same" friend....and...another "shark in the tank" would probably help Portia as well.


Wednesday, July 24, 2019

HappyUP!!! Day 4848

HappyUP!!! - wedge on 1...putt on 18

Why it happened -the left pushed it
Why it makes me happy -it all comes to an end and people can get on with their lives. Sure, the people that pushed this strange investigation are probably going to get their comeuppance but they aren't in power anymore...do what you want with them. It's OVER...finally!

HappyUP!!! Day 4846

HappyUP!!! -commute
Why it happened -I had a client in Sac
Why it makes me happy -I don't do commutes...never have...so, yeah, the thought of one brings me a bit of anxiety. No, I don't freak out about traffic. It is just a huge waste of time. Because of when I went, it was as smooth as could be

HappyUP!!! - perfect timing
Why it happened -lucky
Why it makes me happy -I wasn't there for anytime at all and immediately brought value...I am talking about the first minute and the first half hour. Nice to start that way. Great examples just delivered to us

Why it happened -I ordered them
Why it makes me happy -dug into the first one...yep...I KNEW I placed it in my cart for a reason! It is perfect timing!!!

HappyUP!!! - the OPEN
Why it happened -it's a thing
Why it makes me happy - a really nice guy one...in his home country. It wasn't close and it is the last of the majors which is a downer. It's the only golf I watch. BUT, it was a great highlight.

Saturday, July 20, 2019

HappyUP!!! Day 4844

HappyUP!!! - great post round chat
Why it happened -we do that
Why it makes me happy -I like great conversations

HappyUP!!! -best round in months
Why it happened - see the above...and something else
Why it makes me happy -it's really a rhythm thing. It wasn't a great ball striking day...but I got some other things working a bit. Left a LOT out there on the course. A much needed good round

HappyUP!!! -pitch in on 9
Why it happened -skills
Why it makes me happy - this was just a perfectly lobbed 60 degree wedge. It looked good....until it started looking great....and then it disappeared. I quickly looked over at my opponent...it's the 9th hole where you are trying to get a little something back...and I watched all the air deflate. I was on the other end of that the day before on this hole.  It feels WAAAAAY better to be the deflator than the deflatee.

Why it happened -skills
Why it makes me happy - took a little running 8 iron from the front of the green. A lot of my chipping has been off speed-wise. This one may have had a bit of steam on it when it hit the stick and dropped in...but not too much. LOVE making the birdie there. Needed some LOVE today!

HappyUP!!! -    hole 7

Why it happened - it was the big one

Why it happened - it's why I am here
