Charlie Groh

...oh, and you couldn't pay me *any* amount to go back there!  Happy, I am ($5 to Yoda) to be where I am.

Greg Cook

Phil, I'm going to steal that tidbit. It will cut the distance between my age and golf score in half (at least).

To me the only thing scarier than going back to algebra would be going back to dating.

Michael Elliott

Good stuff, Greg, Phil, and Charlie

You're so right about dating.  I'm with Charlie on algebra.  Along with plane geometry, the only math I liked. Never had it better in my life than right now.  Except when my 3 grown kids were in the cribs and didn't drive, go out, or leave the house til we took them to school.

More thoughts on growing older:

  • The older you get, life in prison is less of a threat! (Thanks to Steve B. for that one.)
  • You know you are getting old when everything either dries up or leaks.
  • I don't know how I got over the hill without getting to the top.
  • One of the many things no one tells you about aging is that it's such a nice change from being young.
  • One must wait until evening to see how splendid the day has been.
  • Being young is beautiful but being old is comfortable and relaxed.
  • If you don't learn to laugh at trouble, you won't have anything to laugh at when you're old.

Hello everyone, just a reminder that we're meeting for breakfast tomorrow, Tuesday August 28th, at 9:30 AM at the Keno's restaurant at 2661 LaPalma in Anaheim. Hope to see you there.

Greg Cook

Hasn't been a lot of activity here lately, so:

I urge all my family and friends in the Carolinas, and in the entire East Coast, to be careful. I can't afford to go to 27 baby showers in April because you lost power.

Michael Elliott


Was that photo taken at Waterville, GC, in Ireland?


09/13/18 12:44 PM #1076    


Bob Clark

Good point, Greg. As one current North Carolinian,, let me say I will be careful. 

Cheers to all

Jerry Labuda

Good luck Bob, hope all turns out well for you.

Greg Cook

Bob, stay safe. We have family in Chapel Hill don't know if that's in the path.

Mike, that photo is at Pinehurst and the statue of Payne Stewart sits behind the 18th green at Pinehurst No. 2. Interesting note for fellow golfers. Every Sunday on Pinehurst 2 the pins are placed in the same places they were in 1999 when Payne won the US Open there.

I don't have enough game to play that course but we did have lunch there and I bought the requisite hat and T-shirt. They just opened a Par 3 course (Cradle) that is open to the public. I might have enough game for that course.

Bob Clark

Thanks, friends. Chapel Hill is 8 miles away from Us in Durham. We have been very fortunate in this storm, as it brushes us while battering the coast and south and east of us, presumably including Pinehurst. It is a very large storm and the rains will continue for a few days, but comparatively light fall for us. Hurricane Fran in 1996 was much more destructive here in the Triangle—Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill. The Outer Banks always get hit hard, of course. 

Cheers and best wishes to all

Glad to hear you are on the fringes of the storm's nastiness.

Greg, thanks for filling in the gaps for me regarding your Pinehurst visit.  There's also a great statue of Payne Stewart in Waterville, Republic of Ireland.  No doubt he's an icon there too.


09/15/18 09:50 AM #1082    


Greg Cook

Bob, glad to hear you missed the brunt of Florence. We now know our family in Chapel Hill is OK.

Mike, I actually had a run-in with Payne Stewart in 1997. It's would take too long to relate the whole story but the Reader's Digest version has to do with Payne Stewart, my cell phone, the 16th hole on a Saturday at the Byron Nelson tournament in Texas and a bogey on a driveable par 5.

09/15/18 10:19 AM #1083    


Bob Clark

That sounds like a great story to enjoy over a beer or two, Greg. Glad your family is safe and well. 

09/15/18 02:03 PM #1084    


Linda Wonn (Carpenter)

So glad to herar you are both ok.

09/24/18 06:54 AM #1085    


Jerry Labuda

Breakfast time again, tomorrow Tuesday Sept. 25th at 9:30 AM at Keno's Restaurant at 2661 W. LaPalma, see you there.

09/28/18 12:58 PM #1086    


Greg Cook

Not sure what it means but for 1965 graduates has to mean something. 

Factoid that may interest only me: In less than two years we will be closer to 2070 than 1970

09/29/18 04:07 AM #1087    


Clyde Hodges

Factoid: In 2070 we will all be a memory.

09/30/18 09:22 AM #1088    


Greg Cook

Clyde you're probably right but nonetheless I've started thinking about what to wear to the Rebel 100 year reunion.

10/02/18 07:35 AM #1089    


Mitch Wise

Just make sure to keep a vintge Tommy Bahama or other Hawian Shirt


10/03/18 09:32 AM #1090    


Greg Cook

Fortunately I have a closet full already. I just hope I have the mental faculties to remember to wear pants.

10/04/18 03:55 PM #1091    


Jerry Labuda

Ok Greg make sure you wear your pants tomorrow evening. See you at El Torito. If any one is readng this and is interested, tomorrow Friday October 5th, Savanna is having their annual gathering at El Torito in Yorba Linda at 22699 Oakcrest Circle all evening long. Come join the fun.

10/05/18 09:00 AM #1092    


Greg Cook

OK Jerry if you insist, pants it is.

10/09/18 09:58 AM #1093    


Greg Cook

At 70, you are still a child.

At 80, a young man or woman.

If at 90, someone from Heaven invites you over, tell him,

“Just go away, and come back when I am 100.”
