HappyUP!!! Day 2820

HappyUP!!! - 5 iron on 8
Why it happened - it was that PERFECT strike
Why it makes me happy - it was 180 yards...wind blowing against...which enhances acoustics. My playing partners wouldn't confirm it....but...based on my ears...and where the ball mark was in relation to where the ball ended up....I think I actually hit the stick...a near ace.  No a largo birdie

HappyUP!!! - sandie by my partner on 8
Why it happened - he hit phenomenal bunker shot...then followed it up with a putt

Why it makes me happy - I was playing against my bro...and his partner. We were basically beating their brains out all day....while I will do it...I don't enjoy that.  All of a sudden, they kicked it up. Collectively, they played the last 3 holes in 3 under par......THAT is pretty darn good!  While it was a RECORD fold on the part of me and my partner, it was more THEY pulled it out! Fun

Kicking butt on front 9

HappyUP!!! - 7 iron 17
Why it happened - a bit of skill
Why it makes me happy - it was the PERFECT shot...not just because it landed so close....the tragectory was as it should be.  One can hit a shot that ends up in a good place...but when one hits the shot JUST RIGHT.....the strike...the flight of the's heaven. That combination does not happen often for the average golfer

HappyUP!!! - coming back
Why it happened - some good golfin on the back 9

HappyUP!!! Day 2808

HappyUP!!! - I did my Boy Scout duty today
Why it happened - the opportunity presented itself today
Why it makes me happy - OK.....I am NOT...and NEVER have been a Boy Scout. We all know the stereotype that helping the elderly crossing the street is part of the BS culture.  When this little old lady in her walker was heading toward the freshly poured street slurry oil.....I RAN across the street to redirect her.  It's just what anyone SHOULD do!  It always feels good to go out of your way to help someone...even if it is a relative stranger

HappyUP!!! - some legal research
Why it happened - I called in some experts
Why it makes me happy - it was great news for whom I was doing the work on behalf of....REALLY not so great for the other person.  Uhm...uhm...uhm.....other person should really think about the last offer that was put on the table verbally a few weeks ago.  HOLE THEORY! (see 11/1 posting).  If things haven't gone so well up to now, other party REALLY not going to like next phase. Sadly, other person is pretty much out of time to go back to the generous offer.  HATE to see people "get played" by attorneys that love to run up fees.  Oh well......choices!

HappyUP!!! - Domestic Violence speech
Why it happened - Toastmasters
Why it makes me happy - a volunteer counselor gave some sobering statistics for Placer County. No...that's not a HappyUP!!!....but it was interesting to have some things confirmed that I suspected to what the realm of Domestic Violence/Abuse expands to.  If an act qualifies as Domestic Abuse, it can expand the legal options one has against the abuser

HappyUP!!! - Area Governor visit
Why it happened - it's a regular occurrence
Why it makes me happy - we got some good ideas...we were given a clean bill of health....all good

HappyUP!!! - Shohleh pays a visit

HappyUP!!! Day 2805

In honor of a very special person in my life.....know you are in my thoughts!

HappyUP!!! - G-mac turning it on
Why it happened - we were partners
Why it makes me happy - always love this guy as a partner....and today....he helped us reel in $15

HappyUP!!! - 5 iron on 12
Why it happened - I actually stayed through a shot
Why it makes me happy - a SPECIAL mid-long iron shot always has a feel to it that is hard to describe. As the ball soars into the air, you think, "that is going to be perfect.." but you never know for sure until the pellet returns to earth.  In this case, it was just right....and the putt for birdie was just as good

HappyUP!!! - brekko
Why it happened - my club
Why it makes me happy - "build your own omellette" does a chili/cheese/chorizo sound to you? My golfing partners didn't like the sound of it...not from what it would taste like (DELICIOUS)....but they were going to be spending the next 5 hours near me. LOL.....NO repercussions!!!

Friday, November 01, 2013

HappyUP!!! Day 2804 Hole Theory Day

Hole Theory - I think I have posted about this before.  There are many supporting concepts under Hole Theory.....

....and, especially for certain males - (note I didn't say "men"...there is a difference between a male and  a man)....Hole Theory is REALLY hard to grasp for "child males."

Hole Theory is simple...and here it is...- RULE 1 of Hole Theory....when you find yourself in a hole......QUIT DIGGING!!!

Get It? - you are in a hole!  You need to climb out!  If you keep digging, you just dig it deeper...and deeper....and deeper......and....before you know end up figuratively in your own grave alienating yourself to the others around did it with your own shovel!....

....then - it is typical for the Hole Digger to blame others....wah wah wah

Hole Theory - it's a simple concept....but...some just can't see it.

HappyUP!!! - Hi Tiny!
Why it happened - a returning character
Why it makes me happy - good to do I say this?.... I guess there is a thing about consistent stupidity that makes me feel good about my assessment regarding certain people that share our same air.

HappyUP!!! - 4 birdies on the back 9
Why it happened - who knows?
Why it makes me happy - I was on fire on that back 9.  That substantial loss on the front 9 turned into a win....despite one of my opponents actually playing relatively better golf than I did. Still....4 birdies on the home 9...that is going to cure a lot of ills!

HappyUP!!! - communication
Why it happened - some people just don't get it
Why it makes me happy - got the full story....and...well...SOMETHING is going to happen...that is going to be decidedly unpleasant for someone that has it coming to them.  People suceptible to bad council....are easy to be controlled and  pandered to by those that want their money.  The manipulator flames the person's wishes...I'm happy I don't have that gene in me to be so easily duped!
