Back from the Peoples Republic of Wisconsin/The No Deal Debt Deal
Thursday, youngest son Hal and I went golfing near his Centerville home, in nearby Germantown, Ohio. I got up just after 4am, showered, and headed down for our 7:30 "Tee Time". We were done by 11. This was the first time I had golfed on a regulation course in almost 9 years...that was back in October 2002 just before the last Vietnam VSPA Reunion in Dayton. I was prepared to have a bad day on the course, but ended up pleasantly surprised...I hacked my way to a 112, and if not for a few shots I should have made it would have been close to 100, meanwhile Hal stroked a 97...once done there we headed back to Celina. Hal would ride with Patricia and me to Wisconsin, while his wife Lisa, 5 months along, would fly to Chicago, then to Milwaukee, where Hal would pick her up on Friday evening.
The reason for the Wisconsin trip was the marriage of Patricia's nephew in Pewaukee, Wisconsin, with a reception to follow at the Oconomowoc Lake Club:
Needless to say, this was going to be a big reception with just about everything you could want.
In addition to the Wedding, we had a fish fry to honor Patricia's sister Sue's retirement, that took place at the Golden Mast on Friday, then on Sunday over to her youngest Brother Dave's place to watch the Dousman Day Parade. When that was done, I took Hal and Lisa back to the Airport outside Milwaukee...Hal would fly to Denver on business, and Lisa would fly back to Dayton. Patricia and I would stick around until Monday morning, when we would breakfast with Sue and their parents, before heading home. That's when the Nitro drama began......
Regardless, the Nitro has some "issues" that need taken care of....still under warranty, we will see them through, come Hell or High Water. As for now, it is running like everything is normal, but I know better....
So that was the weekend in short, and am now glad to be home....
And speaking of our Kenyan and Thief Barack Obama...how about that budget "Deal" with the GOP? Anybody but me realize that the left wins again? There are no real cuts, just more spending, spending, spending....the Tea Party newcomers for the most part, have held up their end. The old line Republicans, like McCain, Boehner, and McConnell, have folded like cheap suits....they have kicked the can down the road, and kicked our kids and grand kids in the teeth....the country is heading into economic Armageddon, and, the media, Islamic Radicals, China, and the left, are celebrating.
As for me, I have pretty much given up on politics....at 62, I will survive until the end, the debt will skyrocket, and the freeloaders will continue to produce more kids than the working people of this country....Bend Over Taxpaying Americans....this one is going to hurt~back later>>>>
Photos-Hal(bottom) and I attack the 18th hole on Thursday...shooting better than I expected, after a 9 year layoff from the links. The look out over Oconomowoc Lake from the deck of the Club, where the wedding reception was held....The Dodge Nitro, still has some serious issues, which were exposed in the return trip from Wisconsin. And Wisconsin Politics, where the lunatics are running the political nuthouse.....
