    A Message For Golf From A Last Wave Millennial

    Nice job Dave. You made your points well without lecturing. Certainly gave food for the proverbial thoughts. You have a nice on camera presence and are obviously at ease on the front end of a camera. Similarly, I was going to work on a similar video piece, but I couldn't figure out where to put the car chase, the shootout and the gratuitous lovemaking scenes...

    Ydnar's Tales of Golf Course Vengeance

    I can think of at least two foursomes where I need to walk to through the pro shop, big ol' Stihl 36 incher in hand, and mutter "red rum, red rum". Thanks to Hector and Ydnar!

    Golf Courses are like . . . Guitars?

    Hey man, don't pretend like you didn't party just because you don't want momma to know! That was a wild gig. <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/RG69PMDBfaE" frameborder="0" allow="autoplay; encrypted-media" allowfullscreen></iframe>

    Wow, that ol' blackunwhite 'lectric guitar of yurn brings back memories of guest singing in your band back in the 80's. You jammin' on that git-ar better than Eddie Van and buddy beatin' the skins, a bleach blonde Dave Wilber jammin on the bass git-ar. What a sight we were! Tragic loss of a platinum album band on their meteoric rise from a groupie and the LSD I got...sad.

    It takes a village... (or a small town, anyway)

    I'm sorry for your loss, Peter. Great article about a really amazing guy. Wish I could have met him.

    I didn't know Slim Pickens was in The Green Berets with John Wayne.

    Take "The Dark Side" and Shove It

    I've believed for years that we should be offering sales technique seminars at GIS and at a chapter level. I always get a puzzled look or an eyebrow raised in disbelief. Everything we do is a sale- an equipment replacement, a tree plan, a budget, etc. I was happy to see someone else felt the same. I always enjoy your writing, Dave. Thanks! BN

    Don't Say It

    I Have Acquiesced

    Eddie Shore was a hockey great...and a legendary bruiser. Start with Wikipedia and then watch Slap Shot. Most of the characters in the movie were based on real people in hockey, i.e. the Hanson brothers were based on the Carlson brothers, who were actual players. I believe one of them accrued more than 1,000 penalty minutes in 500 games!

    BrokeBack CC And The 80 Year Old Cart Boy From Hell

    The Toro 970...lucky I lived to tell the tales of maintaining the 970. They were a glorious sight to behold running down the center of the fairways on sunny Minneapolis morns...
