waiting on Joe to post some pics....
Sorry Mike, that's never going to happen because Joe doesn't know how to post pics (LOL) so I thought I'd jump on and post two photos.
First let me say that like playing with Lou and David at Bethpage and meeting YankeeJim and drmoose in Cooperstown...Erik (eingmund) and I (up to a certain point, more later) had a great time meeting up with conveyorguy (Mike) and gonfission (Joe) on Monday of this week and playing golf IRL.
We played at Richmond CC in Richmond, RI. It's a beautiful course set in the middle of a pine forest and although it rained the night before and into the morning the grounds crew were there first thing in the morning using leaf blowers to dry out the greens and we were really appreciative of that.
Erik and I had a great time with these guys, they are funny as hell and good golfers. On the front nine we were having so much fun, there was laughter all around. The back nine was a little different.
On about the 11th or 12th hole ( I can't remember) I experienced the most freakish accident any of us have ever heard of in golf to myself (other than getting dragged into a pond by an alligator). My fellow players have been sworn to secrecy not to disclose what happened so don't ask (because I know where they live)...let's just say that's going to cost me between $3000 and $10,000 to fix what happened to me, so basically it was the most expensive round of golf I've ever played.
I quit playing after this accident and thought the guys would be bummed that I dropped out of the game but they were real troopers. Erik, Joe and Mike completely understood how I felt (completely embarrassed) and were totally cool with me just riding in the cart for the rest of the day and watching them play. Thanks guys!
With that said, I can't wait to get together with these guys again in the Spring.
Here are some pics-

This is me with Mike's Andyson's repair tool, my Andyson's hat marker and the flag from Richmond CC-
That's it guys. I'll play golf with these guys any day of the week.
