For golfers only
Golf can best be defined as an endless series of tragedies obscured by the occasional miracle, followed by a good bottle of beer.
Golf! You hit down to make the ball go up. You swing left and the ball goes right. The lowest score wins. And on top of that, the winner buys the drinks
Golf is harder than baseball. In golf, you have to play your foul balls.If you find you do not mind playing golf in the rain, the snow, even during a hurricane, here's a valuable tip: your life is in trouble.
Golfers who try to make everything perfect before taking the shot rarely make a perfect shot.
The term 'mulligan' is really a contraction of the phrase 'maul it again.'
A 'gimme' can best be defined as an agreement between two golfers .. neither of whom can putt very well.
An interesting thing about golf is that no matter how badly you play; it is always possible to get worse.
Golf's a hard game to figure. One day you'll go out and slice it and shank it, hit into all the traps and miss every green. The next day you go out and for no reason at all you really stink.
If your best shots are the practice swing and the 'gimme putt', you might wish to reconsider this game.
Golf is the only sport where the most feared opponent is you.
Golf is like marriage: If you take yourself too seriously it won't work and both are expensive.
The best wood in most amateurs' bags is the pencil.
David Letterman's Top Ten Reasons Why Golf Is Better Than Sex.....

#3.. If you live in Florida , you can do it almost every day.
#2... You don't have to cuddle with your partner when you're finished.
And the NUMBER ONE reason why golf is better than sex.....
#1... When your equipment gets old you can replace it!

An important event I missed whilst in Sydney was Valentines Day
Here's my contribution

A boy was teaching a girl arithmetic,
he said, it was his mission.
He kissed her once; he kissed her twice and said,
“Now that’s addition.”
In silent satisfaction,
she sweetly gave the kisses back and said,
“Now that’s subtraction.”
Then he kissed her, she kissed him, without an explanation.
And both together smiled and said,
“That’s multiplication.”
Then her Dad appeared upon the scene and made a quick decision.
He kicked that boy three blocks away and said,
“That’s long division!”

An elderly couple in their 80's were about to get married.
At thewoman's insistence,
they agreed that a prenuptial agreement would be drawn up.
She said: I want to keep my house.
He said that's fine with me.
She said: And I want to keep my Cadillac.
He said: That's fine with me
.She said: I want to have sex 6 times a week.
He said: That's fine with me..................
Put me down for Fridays............

Another event that happened while I was away
was the Chinese New Year
The Year of the Rat

A couple of golden oldies
It Makes you Wonder........
A stranger was seated next to a little girl on the airplane
when the stranger turned to her and said,
"Let's talk. I've heard that flights go quicker if you strike up a conversation
with your fellow passenger."
The little girl, who had just opened her book, closed it slowly and said to the stranger,
"What would you like to talk about?"
Oh, I don't know", said the stranger.
"How about nuclear power?"
"OK," she said. "That could be an interesting topic.
But let me ask you aquestion first.
A horse, a cow, and a deer all eat grass, the same stuff.
Yet a deer excretes little round pellets,
while a cow turns out a flatpatty,
and a horse produces clumps of dried grass.
Why do you suppose that is?"
The stranger thinks about it and says,
"Hmmm, I have no idea."
To which the little girl replies,
"Do you really feel qualified to discuss nuclear power
when you don't know shit?"

Two Irish hunters got a pilot to fly them to Canada to hunt moose.
They managed to bag 6.
As they were loading the plane to return,
the pilot said the plane could take only 4 moose.
The two lads objected strongly.
"Last year we shot six. The pilot let us take them all
and he had the same plane as yours."
Reluctantly, the pilot gave in and all six were loaded.
However, even on full power, the little plane couldn't handle the load
and went down.
Somehow, surrounded by the moose bodies, Paddy and Mick survived the crash.
After climbing out of the wreckage, Paddy asked Mick,
"Any idea where we are?"
Mick replied,
"I think we're pretty close to where we crashed last year."
thanks David Jamieson

Biggest Size you've got please

Have posted this for my readers in the States
Don't know how true it is
Perhaps they will let me know

You are what you read . . .
1. The Wall Street Journal is read by the people who run the country.
2. The Washington Post is read by people who think they run the Country.
3. The New York Times is read by people who think they should run the country and who are very good at crossword puzzles.
4. USA Today is read by people who think they ought to run the Country but don't really understand The New York Times. They do, however, like their statistics shown in pie charts.
5. The Los Angeles Times is read by people who wouldn't mind running the country -- if they could find the time -- and if they didn't have to leave Southern California to do it.
6. The Boston Globe is read by people whose parents used to run the country and did a far superior job of it, thank you very much.
7. The New York Daily News is read by people who aren't too sure who's running the country and don't really care as long as they can get a seat on the train.
8. The New York Post is read by people who don't care who's running the country as long as they do something really scandalous, preferably while intoxicated.
9. The Miami Herald is read by people who are running another Country but need the baseball scores.
10. The San Francisco Chronicle is read by people who aren't sure there is a country ... or that anyone is running it; but if so, they oppose all that they stand for. There are occasional exceptions if the leaders are handicapped minority feminist atheist dwarfs who also happen to be illegal aliens from any other country or galaxy, provided, of course, that they are not Republicans.
11. The National Inquirer is read by people trapped in line at the Grocery store.
