My Two Birdies

March 27, 2006

Today I made two birdies playing golf.

The first was on hole no. 1.  I hit a 345 yard tee shot that faded right around a dogleg right into the middle of the fairway.  I was 45 yards from the pin when I hit a soft L-wedge to within 8 feet of the hole.  I made the uphill put for birdie.

The second birdie came on hole no. 16, a short par 4.  My tee shot had to get up fast, as I took a shortcut to the hole. Most people hit a short iron or a fairway wood off of the tee, but I took a risk today and tried to blast a driver over the trees.  It worked.  My tee shot flew approximately 280 yards, landing on the fringe at the front of the green.  I hit a 9-iron chip shot 60 feet up the slope of the green. The ball stopped two feet away from the cup.  I made the short put to record my second and last birdie of the day.


A short little mindless poem

Starkle, starkle, little twink – who the heck I are you think?

I'm not under the alcofluence of incahol like some thinkle peep I are.

I've just had tee many martoonis and a scottle of botch!

Thanks to Roderick Gibson for reciting this to me 23 times in a row so that I could memorize it.


A prediction for the coming Tornado season

March 26, 2006

I believe that I will get to see a tornado in person this year.  Living in Western Kansas, it is not hard to imagine that there will be more than ample opportunity to get in close to a twister.  I am planning on tagging along in a caravan of storm chasers this year.  Hopefully, I will find out where they are going to park the "Mad Max" style chase vehicle that was headquartered in Hays last year.  The folks that built this armored tornado chasing contraption were feature in a National Geographic special that recently ran on TV.  Check this guy's extreme vehicle out.
