Why it happened -I'm not sure
Why it makes me happy -I usually sleep a LOT less than that! I find it interesting when, all of a sudden, I pop off a longer one. Do I feel better? Hmmmmmm...I don't know. It is just great to have the luxury of allowing the body to do it's thing

Why it happened -something came up for a friend
Why it makes me happy -if my friend's wife is called to do a good deed which causes my friend to take care of the kids, it's like I did the good deed when I took over a task my friend could no longer complete. Mark me up for another round of sainthood

HappyUP!!! Day 4933

HappyUP!!! -bladey wedge on 18
Why it happened -it just seemed to be the call
Why it makes me happy - I'm the only one that employs this shot regularly. It is really for a certain specialty situation. If that comes up, I stay in practice. I have scientifically (in my mind) determined that this is the best shot for most situations. Holed it for birdie on the final hole today...putter would not have done that

HappyUP!!! - 5 am club
Why it happened -I got some inspiration
Why it makes me happy - what a great way to start my day

HappyUP!!! Day 4931

HappyUP!!! - Hip Hop Show
Why it happened -I was interested
Why it makes me happy wasn't my thing....still isn't...some of it is OK. Looking forward to catching up on the songs that were important. I don't think I ever heard "Jesus Walks" by Kanye. I'm "woker" now! LOL

HappyUP!!! - garlic chicken
Why it happened -tried a new recipe
Why it makes me happy -the smell alone sold this deal! The end product just kicked butt as a cherry on top

HappyUP!!! -gutter blow out
Why it happened -I could get the screens off
Why it makes me happy -when I had my windows cleaned, the professionals made every screen removable (I think my painter may have sealed some of them in). Anyway, it made it much safer for me to get on the roof and take the leaf blower to gutters. I WILL NOT be "that guy" this year with the ladder out in the rain unclogging a downspout!

HappyUP!!! -neighbor at Whole Foods
Why it happened -coincidence
Why it makes me happy -did some nice catching up. The family lives across my wide street...we always do "the wave" but rarely get a chance to chat

HappyUP!!! - great walk
Why it happened - I'm going to get back on this
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. I'm about....uh.....6 miles from being there. Looking forward to "laying down some base" and see what happens. Close the year out strong!

Saturday, October 12, 2019

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.....", 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!

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.

Friday, October 11, 2019

HappyUP!!! Day 4928

HappyUP!!! - chicken Caesar wrap
Why it happened - I was early for my tee time

HappyUP!!! -blower attachment
Why it happened -I lost my old one
Why it makes me happy -WOW! What an upgrade! I never would have found this before. Sooo much better than the original attachment! Can't wait to blow out my gutters too!

HappyUP!!! -another win...and another solid round
Why it happened -I figured things out
Why it makes me happy -yeah...wasted a few shots...but that's OK. 7 straight rounds in the 70's. Who would have thunk this a bit over a week ago! Golf.  it's a mind screw!

HappyUP!!! -2 birdies
Why it happened -a great wedge, a good putt, and a reallllllllly great putt
Why it makes me happy -you don't make that putt I made on 13 today...and it broke and dropped in on the BACK side of the hole. AMAZING!

Thursday, October 10, 2019

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!!! Day 4926

HappyUP!!! -Steak Au Poivre

Why it happened -solid play
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
Why it makes me happy - missed a largo and another near largo....could have easily had 4 of those feathery things today. Its about great shots! That hybrid into the wind on 11 today was a work of art!!!

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!

HappyUP!!! - a newer 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!

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 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

 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 - 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 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" 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
2017 Ol Nutter Almanac   10-14 predicted.....34 actual
